The Best Reads Of November Are Right Here

You know what goes perfectly with a Pumpkin Spice Latte? A brand spankin' new reading list. And while we're not handing out Starbucks cards at the moment, we can supply you with some brilliant book picks for the upcoming month.
In our first batch of November reads, the latest from White Oleander author Janet Fitch is top of the pile: Her new book, The Revolution of Marina M. is a historical coming-of-age drama that brings us back to Russia on the brink of complete cultural (and political) upheaval. Another novel that's similarly sweeping and yet completely different: Paul Takes The Form of a Mortal Girl tells the story of a young man trying to figure out his own identity against the backdrop of the early '90s AIDs epidemic and evolving LGBTQ scene. Also on our list: plenty of whip smart nonfiction. We're especially digging Buzzfeed global copy chief Emmy J. Favilla's A World Without 'Whom', as well as Sarah Lacy's terrific, aptly titled A Uterus Is A Feature Not A Bug. Raise your lattes, folks, to the bookish month ahead!
