The Possible November Bestsellers?

There are some possible bestsellers I don't have in my closet. Place your holds now at your local public library, or preorder them at your favorite bookstore. You don't want to miss some of these titles.

Start with David Baldacci's Divine Justice. Members of the Camel Club must fend for themselves, with Oliver Stone, aka John Carr, on the run. He's heading for Devine, Virgina with Joe Knox on his trail.

Ken Bruen's Once Were Cops sets up an exchange program that sends a member of the Guards, Ireland's police force, to New York. Unfortunately for New York, Michael O'Shea is verging on insane.

The latest Dirk Pitt novel, Arctic Drift from Clive Cussler and Dirk Cussler, finds the NUMA director connecting a global warming, sudden deaths in British Columbia, and a rash of international incidents.

In Jeffrey Deaver's The Bodies Left Behind, Deputy Anna McCafferty discovers a double murder, and is forced to flee into the woods with the only witness.

Laurel K. Hamilton's books have hit the bestseller lists, and her latest, Swallowing Darkness, will probably not be an exception. Merry's existence and her rightful place on the throne have depended on her ability ot produce an heir. She's finally pregnant, but is suffering a loss as well.

Bones is Jonathan Kellerman's new Alex Delaware novel. Homicide detective Milo Sturges calls in psychologist Alex Delaware when bones of women start surfacing in L.A.'s Bird Marsh preserve.

Alex Cross becomes involved in the deadly Nigerian underworld of Washington, D.C. in James Patterson's Cross Country, and must track a warlord to Africa.

Salvation in Death presents Detective Lt. Eve Dallas with the murder of a priest during a funeral mass in 2060.

And, since it's November, it's the month for Christmas novels. Santa Clawed is Rita Mae Brown's mystery, and Harry finds a dead body when picking out a Christmas tree. When more men die, Harry and her menagerie must solve the puzzle.

In Lorna Landvik's 'Tis the Season, heiress Caroline Dixon finds support when she reaches out for help to change her alcohol-fueled life.

A Christmas Grace by Anne Perry takes Emily Radley to Ireland, to stay with her dying aunt, and help a troubled community.

It's early enough that you can place your holds at your public library, or order them from your favorite bookstore. Enjoy November's books!

Oh Lesa! I can't leave so many unread Lesa's Book Critiques posts in my Google Reader. An anxious feeling begins to envelop me - you share so many books I want to read. Can you imagine if I worked in a bookstore or even a library? I think I would pass out! :)

That's why my TBR closet looks as bad as it does - ARCs plus library books I couldn't resist!
