Reading is one of the most relaxing past-times, especially when you are sitting by the fire with a warm blanket and a strong cup of coffee. This November, there are many amazing new books to buy from both new and well-known authors. Cozy up with an exciting thriller, fall in love with a heartfelt romance or learn something new from a spectacular non-fiction book. Here are some of our favorites, available at Barnes & Noble in Addison.
White Ivy by Susie Yang
From page one of White Ivy by Susie Yang, I was hooked. This book is about Ivy Lin, who immigrated to America from China and was taught to be a thief and a liar by her grandmother. As a child, she is obsessed with being a “normal” suburban teen – which includes having a crush on the popular Gideon Speyer. Later in life, she reconnects with Gideon, but dating him (and having everything money can buy) isn’t quite what she thought it would be. This twisty novel should definitely be on top of your TBR pile!
When Time Stopped: A Memoir of My Father’s War and What Remains by Ariana Neumann
You’ll be fascinated by this heart-wrenching Holocaust memoir, When Time Stopped: A Memoir of My Father’s War and What Remains by Ariana Neumann. This book is Barnes & Noble’s non-fiction book pick of the month, and follows Neumann’s journey through documents, diaries and keepsakes from her father as se searches to reveal hard family secrets buried in Nazi Prague and Berlin. This historical book is thrilling, haunting and incredibly important to read right now.
