"Rules For A Knight" by Ethan Hawke (out Nov. 10)

As if being an Academy Award-nominated actor and director wasn't enough, Ethan Hawke is a pretty stellar writer, too. His third novel, "Rules For A Knight" is about a knight who is scared he is going to die in battle, so he writes a letter to his children serving as basically his words of wisdom, that he's learned throughout his life. Philosophy lovers will enjoy the Eastern and Western philosophical musings, but everyone will enjoy the touching storyline.

"The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year" by Andy Cohen (out Nov. 3)

"Watch What Happens Live" host Andy Cohen takes fans behind the scenes of his Bravo talk show and gives them a front row seat into his personal life with his dishy new memoir. It's Andy Cohen, so you know you're in for a laugh, and he isn't afraid to make fun of himself, sharing how he completely bombed on "The David Letterman Show" and has had his fair share of failure in the dating scene. There's plenty of drama, and plenty of heart.

"A Year of Yes" by Shonda Rhimes (out Nov. 11)

Between overseeing "Grey's Anatomy," "Scandal" and "How to Get Away with Murder," Shonda Rhimes found time to write her first book and it's an inspirational one. Despite being one of the busiest people in Hollywood — and a mother of three — Rhimes vowed to say yes to all the unexpected inviations that came her way. Doing so changed her life, and she wrote about it. "It was a little insane, a lot terrifying and sometimes wildly embarrassing," Rhimes says of the experiment. "This is not a story I ever planned to share with anyone. However, once Simon & Schuster asked me, I had no choice — what else could I say but yes?" You'll be glad she did.
