November New Books Megalist: The Sequel!

Look around, look around… SO MANY GREAT NOVEMBER BOOKS. I am in NYC this week on many bookish adventures,  but I had the opportunity to read a bunch of amazing titles out today. You can hear about a few of these books on this week’s episode of the All the Books! Jenn and I talked about amazing books we loved, such as The City of Brass, Into the Drowning Deep, and The Wild Book.

SUPERFAIL by Max Brunner, illustrated by Dustin Mackay

Laser vision isn’t so hot when you’re cross-eyed. Just ask Marshall Preston, a twelve-year-old with superhuman abilities that are restricted by some very human setbacks. While other kids are recruited to superhero teams, Marshall’s stuck with a team of young Defectives: super speedy but can’t turn corners, radioactive Hulk allergies, and supersonic flight hindered by motion sickness. They aren’t exactly superhero material, but when Marshall uncovers a plot to destroy one of the greatest superhero teams of all time, he and his less-than-super friends set out to prove that just because you’re defective doesn’t mean you can’t save the day.

(And like last time, I’m putting a ❤️ next to the books that I have read and loved. There are soooo many more on this list that I can’t wait to read!)
