Book Releases: November

After Eden by Helen Douglas

Helen Douglas - After Eden Release date: 7th November

Eden Anfield loves puzzles, so when mysterious new boy Ryan Westland shows up at her school she’s  hooked. On the face of it, he’s a typical American teenager. So why doesn’t he recognise pizza? And how  come he hasn’t heard of Hitler? What puzzles Eden the most, however, is the interest he’s taking in her.

As Eden starts to fall in love with Ryan, she begins to unravel his secret. Her breakthrough comes one  rainy afternoon when she stumbles across a book in Ryan’s bedroom – a biography of her best friend –  written over fifty years in the future. Confronting Ryan, she discovers that he is there with one  unbelievably important purpose … and she might just have destroyed his only chance of success.

How to Fall in Love by Cecelia Ahern

Cecelia Ahern - How to Fall in Love Release date: 7th November

She has just two weeks. Two weeks to teach him how to fall in love – with his own life.

Adam Basil and Christine Rose are thrown together late one night, when Christine is crossing the  Halfpenny Bridge in Dublin. Adam is there, poised, threatening to jump. Adam is desperate – but Christine  makes a crazy deal with him. His 35th birthday is looming and she bets him she can show him that life is  worth living before then.

Despite her determination, Christine knows what a dangerous promise she’s made. Against the ticking of  the clock, the two of them embark on wild escapades, grand romantic gestures and some unlikely late-  night outings. Slowly, Christine thinks Adam is starting to fall back in love with his life.

But has she done enough to change his mind for good? And is that all that’s starting to happen?

Raising Steam by Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett - Raising Steam Release date: 7th November

To the consternation of the patrician, Lord Vetinari, a new invention has arrived in Ankh-Morpork – a  great clanging monster of a machine that harnesses the power of all the elements: earth, air, fire and  water. This being Ankh-Morpork, it’s soon drawing astonished crowds, some of whom caught the  zeitgeist early and arrive armed with notepads and very sensible rainwear.

Moist von Lipwig is not a man who enjoys hard work – as master of the Post Office, the Mint and the  Royal Bank his input is, of course, vital… but largely dependent on words, which are fortunately not very  heavy and don’t always need greasing. However, he does enjoy being alive, which makes a new job offer  from Vetinari hard to refuse…

Steam is rising over Discworld, driven by Mister Simnel, the man wi’ t’flat cap and sliding rule who has an  interesting arrangement with the sine and cosine. Moist will have to grapple with gallons of grease,  goblins, a fat controller with a history of throwing employees down the stairs and some very angry dwarfs  if he’s going to stop it all going off the rails…
