Love and Lemons Every Day by Jeanine Donofrio

Upon first flipping through this cookbook, I knew that I was holding my new favorite kitchen resource. In fact, I made four recipes from this book in the span of 3 days, and have made many more since. No joke. Every recipe I’ve tried so far has been unbelievably delicious. I highly recommend the Baked & Breaded Artichoke “Fish” Tacos and the Flourless Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies as super-tasty starting points. Whether you’re a tried-and-true vegetarian or are just looking to get more Meatless Mondays happening in your household, I promise you this book will be your new best friend in the kitchen. - Nicole

Moonshot by Richard Wiseman, PhD

The historic moon landings were achieved against remarkable odds and within the space of just a few years. How can we apply the secrets of this astronomical success to our own goals to achieve the impossible in work and in life? Richard Wiseman brings together history, psychology, and self-help in this unique and powerful guide to achieving the impossible in work and in life. “What does lunar travel have to teach us? According to Wiseman and the members of Apollo’s mission control he interviewed: the importance of failure, passion, self-belief, and flexibility.” —Publishers Weekly

The Cost of These Dreams by Wright Thompson

Wright Thompson is one of America’s best long-form sportswriters because his stories are never “just” about sports. Thompson explores sports through the lenses of people, politics, regions, culture, and history with a deft eye, keen wit, and profound empathy, and delivers his stories through gorgeous prose. Thompson is a treasure, and while this collection is a must-read for sports fans, non–sports fans will absolutely be able to appreciate and enjoy Thompson’s writing, too. - Stuart

Spying on the South by Tony Horwitz

Just prior to the Civil War, Frederick Law Olmsted —later the designer of Central Park—went on a tour of the South as a correspondent for the New York Times. Just prior to today’s civil war, Tony Horwitz, author of Confederates in the Attic, retraced Olmsted’s route from West Virginia to Texas and into Mexico. From plantations and a monster truck mudfest to a New Orleans gospel-rocking church, he documents how much has changed and what’s still strikingly the same. - Dave

My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing

Dexter meets Mr. and Mrs. Smith in a delightful, dark and twisted psychological thriller that features a perfect loving couple with the requisite two kids, nice house, and great jobs, who also happen to be serial killers. Samantha Downing’s devious plot goes well with her warped characters in this impressive debut. The surprising twists kept me turning the pages until the final unexpected stab at the end!

The Department of Sensitive Crimes A Detective Varg Novel by Alexander McCall Smith

I am easily distracted by titles, and this one was no exception, luring me in with the promise of odd Swedish crimes. While it turned out not exactly what I was expecting, I quickly became caught up in the characters’ lives and the escapades that came their way (such as the search for the imaginary boyfriend). A lovely introduction to McCall Smith’s work, if you’re not already familiar with it.

The Scholar by Dervla McTiernan

The second in the Cormac Reilly series, this smartly-constructed police procedural also reads well on its own. A grisly hit-and-run on the Galway University campus sees DS Reilly heading rapidly into professional and personal crisis as his hunt for the killer leads him uncomfortably close to home. With its believable cast of characters, this series makes a good itch-scratcher for Tana French fans impatiently awaiting The Witch Elm’s paperback release.

The Adventures of Alexander Von Humboldt

I cannot wait to immerse myself in this graphic novel, which is based on Humboldt’s personal writings and Wulf’s The Invention of Nature. The art is a wonderful mix of scientific illustrations, collage, and loose watercolor sketches and perfectly pairs with the written content. Nonfiction graphic novels are a weakness of mine, and this is one I’m looking forward to adding to my collection.
