Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour by J.D. Salinger

Did Salinger invent wry humor, or just perfect it? Either way, you’re guaranteed to enjoy lots of it in this two-novella collection, which follows a few older siblings of the Glass family (think Franny; think Zooey). Sure to break your heart in the most forgiving of ways. - Jess

Seven Blades in Black by Sam Sykes

Sal the Cacophony is a gunslinging wizard-hunter on a mission of vengeance, and—armed with a giant sentient handgun—she’s on the hunt for seven vicious outlaw magicians. This book is brutal and bloody with big battles and lots of action, but also features rich, inventive worldbuilding, snappy dialogue, and characters with surprising humor and heart. I couldn’t put it down! - Stuart

Life is a Party by David Burtka

David Burtka might be best known as the husband of Neil Patrick Harris, but he is also a Cordon Bleu–trained chef and former caterer who throws killer parties. He clearly loves to cook and entertain (just take a look at his Instagram account!), but what’s even more apparent from this book is that he loves the joy that comes from bringing a group of people together. In Life Is a Party, he celebrates moments big and small—from New Year’s Eve to game night—with great menus, party themes, decorations, and inspiration. - S.B.

The Moon by Oliver Morton

“Our Moon, a spherical bit of unchanging inanimate rock, nonetheless captivates us with its romance and its beauty. Its tantalizing almost deceptive proximity makes it also a destination, both a past one and a promising one for the future. In this poetically written and informative book, Oliver Morton takes us through all aspects of this very familiar but very foreign territory, which has inspired stories and study for decades. What a remarkable achievement.”  —Lisa Randall

The Human Swarm by Mark W. Moffett

Called a “daring eco-adventurer” by Margaret Atwood, biologist Mark W. Moffett draws on a range of disciplines, from sociology to anthropology, to analyze the way humans organize and look at what causes societies to rise, conquer, and ultimately fall. Comparing humans to their closest relatives in the animal kingdom such as bonobos and chimps as well as distant cousins like insects, gives The Human Swarm an intriguing take on history akin to titles like Sapiens and Guns, Germs, and Steel. - Aric

Upheaval by Jared Diamond

In his latest work, Diamond chose seven countries that have had major crises within the last 150 years and examines how they’ve dealt with those crises. He then extrapolates from how those countries have evolved since to examine the state of the world today and to project how our future might unfold. Diamond has tackled several broad, complex, and sensitive topics here with the same intelligent and accessible writing that has made his earlier book, Guns, Germs, and Steel, an enduring classic. Part history lesson, part editorial, and part science lecture, I found this to be a truly fascinating read that should become required reading. - Jade

Surprise, Kill, Vanish by Annie Jacobsen

This is my favorite type of book: fast paced, intelligent, and makes me exclaim, “Ohh, nooo!” out loud while reading it. It’s history from the angles you weren’t meant to see, making the text that much more alarming. Reading about the acceleration from covert training for WWII offense to the more recent happenings in the Middle East was equal parts horror and fascination. Already a fan of her writings, the amount of work Jacobsen (Area 51) put into this book is astounding. The clandestine nature of it all meant she went far beyond traditional research, and that effort shows in the details. - Rachel

The Gameshouse by Claire North

Claire North is as fascinating a subject as her novels. She has three different noms de plume. All of her novels are strange and wonderful, so I can’t wait to get my hands on this one. High-stakes games where the consequences are real? Heck yes! This was originally published as three novellas and it’ll be exciting to see it in its final form. - Ivy

Big Sky by Kate Atkinson

Picking up a novel by Kate Atkinson always feels like running into a long-lost best friend. My brain just clicks with hers, and soon I’m 100 pages in and marveling at her ability to twist between absurd humor and piercing empathy in mere sentences. PI Jackson Brodie is my favorite of her characters, and I couldn’t be happier to see Atkinson return to his world, and to see if just this once he might catch a break (I doubt it).
