Earlier today Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, predicting that we have an extra six more weeks of winter ahead of us. Outside of a sunny vacation, there is no better cure from the winter blues than to cozy-up with your favorite snacks and a brand-new novel to get lost in. February might be one of the shortest months of the year, but that’s no reason why you should have to suffer through it. We have a novel for everyone on our list, all you have to do is pick one or two out.

February is a very busy month in the world of publishing, and finding the right book to dedicate your evenings to shouldn’t be a chore. With dozens of new choices to shop through, we turn to the awesome team behind Amazon’s editorial staff for their top-picks for February 2015. This month they have quite a selection to choose from including, Nick Hornby’s latest novel (Funny Girl), journalist Dana Thomas’ deep dive into the lives of Alexander McQueen and Paul Galliano (Gods and Kings), a look into the history of humanity (Sapiens), and the next big WW2 novel hitting stands (The Nightingale).
