November reading takes two paths, the perfect books to gift for the holidays, and the perfect books to read while you wait for the holidays to arrive. We are happy to report that these can fill either of those tickets.

Over the last few weeks the Amazon Books’ editorial team have been crafting their must-read books for November, and after selecting from this season’s releases, have come up with a terrific line-up of novels to choose from.

There are quite a few big releases for book-lovers to choose from this month including, Stephen King, David Nicholls, Brooke Shields and Peter Pomerantsev. These are added to already released books that are sweeping the best-sellers’ list including, Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s “Learned” by Lena Dunham, I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai, Not My Father’s Son: A Memoir by Alan Cumming and World Order by Henry Kissinger.
