The Five The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper by Hallie Rubenhold

Everyone knows the gruesome legacy of Jack the Ripper. We know five women were murdered, some even know their names, but few know anything about them beyond their end. Rubenhold shows us their beginnings with compassion, putting human faces on inhuman crimes. It was a perfect read for my macabre sensibilities and taught me lots of new information about these ugly crimes. - Ivy

The Undefeated by Kwame Alexander, illustrated by Kadir Nelson

Alexander and Nelson have created a perfect book that invites readers to truly feel. Every word is necessary, every illustration is just what it needs to be (even when it’s nothing at all). It’s a testament to the black experience in the United States that comes together in a central message: Black. Lives. Matter. Beautiful, heartrending, hopeful, true, and easily the best book of the year. - Stephanie

Here’s what other Bookshop staff* are saying about The Undefeated: “Pure poetry… Impactful and beautiful… Finally… Goosebumps… Astonishing… Required reading… Heartbreaking and heartwarming… Awesome… Stunning… Heart in your throat… Moving and gut- punching… Soul lifting.”

*And Casey says: “A new classic. Undeniably powerful. Black Lives Matter in poetry.”

The Stranger Diaries by Elly Griffiths

The tangled love lives of a school English department are rudely interrupted by a grisly murder in this standalone mystery. Fans of gothic suspense, British humour, and books rich with literary references will love this, as will those who, like me, have never recovered from their teenage fascination with what's really happening behind the teacher's lounge door. An excellent starting point to discover Griffiths' immensely satisfying style. Excuse me while I devour her back catalogue. - Ilana

Liquid Rules by Mark Miodownik

Miodownik is back with the same delightful formula as Stuff Matters, my all-time favorite material sciences book. This book tackles liquids: the unstable, ever-changing force in our lives. Each chapter is framed around a liquid experienced onboard an airplane. From jet fuel to complementary tea to display screens (yes, liquid too!), this is for the daydreamer fascinated by the world around them. - Clara

The New Well-Tempered Sentence by Karen Elizabeth Gordon

Quite certainly the spiciest use of commas in an educational text. An example of commas between independent clauses: I won’t rise to the occasion, but I’ll slide over to it. Even more ambiguously suggestive: He told her he belonged to another, yet his pajamas clung to her tights. Also the probably immoral, yet proper, usage of semicolons, hyphens, apostrophes, and the dreaded ellipses. - Dave

The Immortal Irishman by Timothy Egan

For four hundred years to be Irish in Ireland was a crime. Its people, stubborn to a fault, did not take to fetters gently. Thomas Francis Meagher ached for a free Ireland though he spent most of his life in exile. Just in time for the Easter Rising centennial, Egan writes about Meagher with a fervor to match the man’s need for freedom. Meagher’s almost unbelievable life lit a fire in me. - Ivy
