If you are looking to cozy up with  a good book this winter season, you’re in luck because there are plenty of books to choose from. Whether you want a book to take you on a journey or need to learn about politics, the  New York Times bestsellers list may have the best options to choose from.

In the hardcover fiction category coming in at number one is Blue Moon by Lee Child, in which Jack Reacher gets caught up in a turf war between Ukrainian and Albanian gangs. In this novel an elderly couple have made a few well-meaning mistakes, and now they owe big money to some very bad people. One brazen move leads to another, and suddenly Reacher finds himself a wanted man in the middle of a brutal turf war between rival gangs. Reacher has to stay one step ahead of the loan sharks, the thugs, and the assassins. He teams up with a fed-up waitress who knows a little more than she’s letting on, and sets out to take down the powerful and make the greedy pay. It’s a long shot. The odds are against him. But Reacher believes in a certain kind of justice the kind that comes along once in a blue moon.

In the paperback trade fiction, the number one is Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris. In April 1942, Lale Sokolov, a Slovakian Jew, is forcibly transported to the concentration camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau. When his captors discover that he speaks several languages, he is put to work as a Tätowierer (the German word for tattooist), tasked with permanently marking his fellow prisoners. Imprisoned for more than two and a half years, Lale witnesses horrific atrocities and barbarism—but also incredible acts of bravery and compassion. Risking his own life, he uses his privileged position to exchange jewels and money from murdered Jews for food to keep his fellow prisoners alive.

The number one book in the hardcover nonfiction is “Triggered”, in which Donald Trump Jr. writes about how the Left supposedly uses tricks to smear conservatives and push them out of the public square, from online shadowbanning to rampant political correctness. Trump, Jr. writes about the importance of fighting back and standing up for what you believe in. From his childhood summers in Communist Czechoslovakia that began his political thought process, to working on construction sites with his father, to the major achievements of President Trump’s administration, Donald Trump Jr. spares no details and delivers a book that focuses on success and perseverance, and proves offense is the best defense.

Whether you are looking for fiction or nonfiction, The New York Times has a huge list of best sellers that you can look at to find what you’re looking for.
