Best New Books November 2022: Top New Books Releases

Ah, there’s nothing like the joy of getting stuck into one of the best new books, especially since the clocks have gone back. Cosier winter nights are upon us, and that means one thing only. More reading time.

It’s also worth pointing out that Christmas is little over a month away (eep), so we’re excited to bring you some gorgeous news books that make for some of the best Christmas gifts (or gifts-to-self) of the 2022 festive season. Of which there are countless winter warmers that have been making huge headlines already.

Let’s start with Matthew Perry’s autobiography, which you won’t have failed to spot almost everywhere since its release. The man behind Friends’ much-loved Chandler Bing bares all in this epic new book, where he details his struggles with addiction, fame and all that comes with it. Packed with revelations, it’ll have you reaching for your tissues and then some more. Trust us.

Elsewhere, for those of us still re-watching Gilmore Girls (a.k.a. the best TV show ever made), Lauren Graham is back with a series of essays that will make you laugh and feels like a warm hug on a cold day.

November also sees the release of part II of the inimitable Cormac McCarthy’s duology, Stella Maris, as well as a superb collection of twenty two crime and suspense stories from literary icon Joyce Carol Oates. And let’s not forget the one and only Haruki Marukami’s latest work of non-fiction, as well as Louise Penny’s hugely anticipated A World of Curiosities: book eighteen of her Three Pines series. Get ordering from the links below – you will not want to miss these brilliant books.

After more books content? We’ve got sleep books, cookbooks, poetry books, romance novels, true crime books, autobiographies, vegetarian cookbooks, mental health books and adult colouring books. We’ve also got coffee table books, summer books, vegan cookbooks and books by black authors. Don’t say we don’t treat you.
