    It's hard to believe November has shown up on our doorstep. With the drop in temperature, what better time to consider spending a long afternoon in bed with your favourite book?

    And there are plenty of new titles worthy of your list this month, so wherever you wind up reading, you'll be in good company. Swing Time — Zadie Smith's highly-anticipated new novel — is finally hitting bookshelves on 15th November. The story of two young women whose lifelong friendship falls apart in their twenties, this book also digs into themes of heritage and inequality — not to mention the very specific and sometimes explosive kinship between two women over time. Another big name book this month is Moonglow, by Michael Chabon, a beautiful homage to the lives the author's grandparents lived, and a nuanced history lesson that winds its way to the present day.

    If you're itching for nonfiction, there's certainly some of that, too. (Elena Ferrante fans — I suspect you'll find yourself especially pleased.) So give one of these a try and crack open their spine. It's the weather for it.
