Of course, there's only one question left: Which books should you buy? There are some seriously great titles available, and it might be difficult to choose.

So, with these books marked down to 50% off, you can definitely let your inner book nerd loose on Barnes & Noble this week. Here are a few of the titles you can buy at a discount for the next few days:
'Circe' by Madeline Miller
If you haven't cracked open one of 2018's most celebrated novels, now is definitely the time to do it. Circe, the daughter of the god Helios, possesses a strong power for witchcraft. After being banished by Zeus to a deserted island, she hones her skills and encounters a myriad of creatures and figures from mythology. This is the feminist take on the Greek classics that you've been long been waiting for.
'The Perfect Mother' by Aimee Molloy
This thriller is headed to the big screen (with Scandal's Kerry Washington as the star), so you definitely want to crack it open before it becomes the next Gone Girl. The novel follows the May Mothers, a group of new moms in Brooklyn who meet-up regularly to escape their daily routines. But when one of their babies is abducted, they mobilize in hopes of finding him. But as the investigation moves forward, it becomes apparent that many of the May Mothers have deep, dark secrets.
'Born a Crime' by Trevor Noah
Daily Show host Trevor Noah wrote a memoir you'll fall in love with and want to share with all your friends. In this high-spirited, thoughtful, and unforgettable book, Noah reflects on growing up in South Africa during and after apartheid, when his very existence as the son of a black woman and white man put him in danger. The book is a heart-wrenching ode to his strong, fierce mother, and it will give you so many feels.
'Ash Princess' by Laura Sebastian
Ash Princess is the explosive first book in what is sure to be an obsession-worthy YA series. (The second book, Lady Smoke, comes out next year.) The novel follows Theo, who was six years old when her country was invaded and her mother, the Fire Queen, was murdered before her eyes. She's been held captive in her own castle for the past ten years — but now she's ready to fight back, with the sharpest weapon she has: Her mind.
'Monday's Not Coming' by Tiffany D. Jackson
In Monday's Not Coming, Tiffany D. Jackson uses fiction to address a real-life crisis: the un-investigated disappearances of dozens of young women of color in Washington D.C. In this story, Claudia's best friend, Monday, goes missing, but Claudia seems to be the only person who cares. What happened to Monday? And will Claudia be able to find her before it's too late?
