November 2020 YA Book Releases

Here’s a look at this month’s upcoming releases.


We’re trying something new at Bookstacked: a monthly rundown of upcoming YA book titles. We’re experimenting with the format and trying to figure out the best way to present all of the information at the moment. Feel free to chime in the comments if you have any thoughts or ideas!

Are you ready to jump back into the OASIS? Wade Watts, the hero of Ernest Cline’s intensely popular tribute to pop-culture, is set to make his return in Ready Player Two. This book, which technically isn’t YA but has been historically popular with teens and adults alike, is expected to be one of the biggest book releases across all of bookdom this month.

Also not a YA book — but still incredibly popular within the community — Brandon Sanderson’s next installment in The Stormlight Archive will hit shelves. YA authors Kass Morgan and Danielle Paige also teamed up to write The Ravens, which is also set for release this November.

Here’s a look at November’s YA book releases.
