Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan

Dorie Greenspan is a renowned baker but she is also a fantastic cook (as evidenced in her previous book, Around My French Table, which won the IACP Cookbook of the Year award). In Everyday Dorie, she shares recipes for the kinds of food she likes to make for herself, her friends, and her family every day—from soups and salads to vegetable and meat dishes and, happily, desserts. Greenspan is charming and unpretentious (both on and off the page), and her joy is infectious. You’ll wish you were a guest at her house, but this is the next best thing. - S.B.

...And Then You Die of Dysentery by Lauren Reeves

Why We Dream is an illuminating, surprising, often astounding look at the purpose and power of dreams. I hadn’t even finished by the time I was convinced to start my own dream journal. This is a beautiful work of science writing that will change the way you think of your own nightly voyage.” —David Epstein, best-selling author of The Sports Gene

Friday Black by Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah

Friends, this is it. This is the book we’ve been waiting for. And now I can’t get it out of my head, and the pit of my stomach, and my aching heart. It is that good, that gorgeous, that brutal, surreal, tender, enlightening, bitingly funny, and unbelievably truthful. And it’s short stories, so I urge you to savor them one at a time, if you can. Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah is here, and I say not a moment too soon. - Melinda

Fly Girls by Keith O'Brien

We’re all familiar with Amelia Earhart, but what about Ruth Elder, who was chided by Eleanor Roosevelt for wanting to fly across the Atlantic? There are mothers and divorcees in this book, from all walks of life, brought together in the desire to push boundaries, fly planes, and to not take no as an answer. The only reason I’m not completely fed up with the trend of describing women as “girls” in book titles, is that so many badass women are being introduced to the public eye and having their successes recognized. Shelve this one right alongside Code Girls and Radium Girls and bathe in the illumination these women have brought to the world. - Rachel

Scaly Spotted Feathered Frilled by Catherine Thimmesh

Another dinosaur book? Not exactly: rather than adding to the panoply of dino-guides, Thimmesh instead looks at how new discoveries in paleontology require sometimes-drastic revisions by paleoartists. Is that a job? Yes! Copious illustrations by leading artists add much appeal to the book’s unique approach. Grades 3 and up.Horn Book Fanfare

From Cold War to Hot Peace by Michael McFaul

McFaul, who served in President Obama’s National Security Council and is the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, combines history and memoir to tell the story of U.S.–Russia relations from the fall of the Soviet Union to the present. I found it fascinating to read about it from his perspective—not only as an expert, but as an individual dealing with other individuals. You really see history as not just moves and countermoves by governments but as a series of efforts and decisions made by people. (Diplomacy never looked so good.) With its insider stories about Obama, Putin, and Russians we’ve recently seen in the Oval Office (like Foreign Minister Lavrov), this is a candid and compelling read. - S.B.

This is Just My Face by Gabourey Sidibe

“Here, Gabourey Sidibe cements her status as gives-zero-effs queen of Hollywood and perceptive best friend in your head. Frank, funny, and insanely charming, these stories reveal the girl behind the gown and show Hollywood for what it really is: A wet t-shirt contest of an industry that sometimes redeems itself by picking the right star. Gabby is that star, and you'll root for her on every page—we are blessed by her honesty, passion and wit.” —Lena Dunham
