Winter is coming. The days are getting shorter and the temperatures are getting colder, so now may be a good time to start staying inside more with a good book.

Luckily, the Copperas Cove Public Library has readers of all ages covered with new books constantly making their ways to the shelves.

As Halloween is right around the corner, the end of October is a great time to dive into a scary novel.

“Sleeping Beauties,” a new novel by Stephen and Owen King, was recently picked up by the library.

It is a good choice for readers looking for something to keep them up at night.

The novel tells the story of a world where women succumb to a new disease.

When they go to sleep, they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze, and while they sleep they travel to a better, safer place where fighting is rare and peace is the new norm.

Meanwhile, with women disappearing from the world, men are becoming increasingly violent and savage as they revert to their primitive ways.

One woman is immune to the sleeping disease, but the real question is if Eve will even be able to survive in the new world.

If horror isn’t quite what a reader is looking for, there are always new spy thrillers popping up at the library.

John le Carre’s new novel, “A Legacy of Spies,” tells the story of several former members of the British Secret Service who are facing charges for decades-old intelligence operations by a generation that is unfamiliar with the dynamics of the Cold War.

The novel has each man recounting his various intelligence operations for an audience that does not care for its justifications, and le Carre uses the interweaving narrative to spin out a thrilling and compelling novel.

Other new books at the library include:

  • “Enigma,” by Catherine Coulter.
  • “The Romanov Ransom,” by Clive Cussler.
  • “Origin,” by Dan Brown.
  • “Flame in the Mist,” by Renee Ahdieh.
  • “All Our Wrong Todays,” by Elan Mastai.
