A new month means a whole slew of new books.


You might have noticed: it's cold now. To ease the pain of preparing to hibernate indoors for the next four months, Amazon is highlighting a whole crop of new, worthwhile books to curl up with. Whether you're in the mood for a thriller, love story or an inspiring memoir, they have picks tailored to your interests.

One of their top editor's picks for November is "Napoleon." At 976 pages, it's heavy, so you might want to download it on your Kindle if you usually commute with your reading material.The book covers what Napoleon's life was like as a child and his early rise to leadership; he became a French general by 24-years-old. It details his military career while providing insight into his quirky, complex personality. History buffs, this one's for you.

If you're looking for something more contemporary, check out David Nicholls's book, "Us." Nicholls is known for writing "One Day," which spawned a movie with Anne Hathaway. "Us" is about a man whose wife asks him for a divorce, right before their family vacation, which they still go on. Yikes. Will it rekindle their flame? Obviously you'll have to read to find out.

Of course Stephen King's new novel, "Revival" is sure to be a popular one this month. It's about a minister and his wife who move to a small New England town and quickly become beloved by the townspeople as they work to transform the church. But when they go through a tough time and start to question their own faith, the townspeople turn on them. Things get interesting when one of the townspeople, Jamie, meets the minister again years later. Jamie is desperate and addicted to drugs, and the two form an interesting bond.
