No God But God by Reza Aslan

Aslan is one of the smartest religious scholars out there. This book reads as both a study of Islam and a commentary forces impacting religion in the modern world (he is especially adroit about extremism and orthodoxy). His perspective will make you fall in love with the beauty of the world’s second-largest religion and think deeply about how we navigate faith in the 21st century. - Clara

Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann

If you have any interest in history, social justice, or true crime, and you haven’t already picked up this book, you need to right now. Grann lays a meticulous thriller, but it’s all true. Introducing vivid characters, painting a living landscape, pacing the twists and turns of the mystery, and highlighting the injustices whose effects echo today, this will keep you up reading, and stay with you. - Jocelyn

The Black Count by Tom Reiss

General Dumas’ story deserves epic operas and an acclaimed HBO series it’s so thrilling and adventurous. As the son of a Marquis and a Haitian slave, Dumas rose to the highest ranks of the French army and commanded the respect of nations. Reiss’ quest to uncover Dumas’ story is a joy to read and discovering the seeds of his son’s novels is an eye-opening pleasure. - Clara

I Am I Am I Am by Maggie O'Farrell

Most of us walk through our daily lives without thinking too much about our mortality, but O’Farrell’s connection to life has been more tenuous than most. Over seventeen essays, she examines the experiences that have taught her how thin the membrane between life and death really is. Told in elegant prose that will resonate in your heart, this book is, ultimately, incredibly life-affirming. - Jess

The Uninhabitable Earth by David Wallace-Wells

A comprehensive and profound treatise on climate. Though much of the information paints a bleak future, I felt inspired to action upon reading. If it’s too much for you, buy it for the person in your life who can handle the darkest truths. This book feels important.  It is my early pick to win a 2019 Pulitzer. I am recommending it to anyone who will listen. - Jason

Notes from a Young Black Chef by Kwame Onwuachi

Chef Kwame Onwuachi partners with Joshua David Stein to present his life on the page rather than in a dish—though we’ve got those too. His early days affected by love and violence, the Bronx and Nigeria, and a lucrative career dealing drugs, Onwuachi shows with reflective and unflinching honesty a journey shaped by family and heritage, and a food-centric destiny embraced with talent and hustle. Fully satisfied, I look forward to the next taste Onwuachi will share. - Jocelyn

In Pursuit of Flavor by Edna Lewis

I have all of Edna Lewis’s books and cannot recommend them highly enough. In Pursuit of Flavor, her third title, is a celebration of the seasonal cooking she grew up with in the farming community of Freetown, Virginia. With chapters such as From the Gardens and Orchards, For the Cupboard, and The Taste of Old-Fashioned Desserts, Miss Lewis shares memories, timeless recipes, and great tips for getting the most flavor out of food. This new edition features a foreword by acclaimed Savannah chef Mashama Bailey, who used In Pursuit of Flavor as the inspiration for her menu at The Grey. - S.B.

Franklin Steak by Aaron Franklin & Jordon Mackay

The secret to the perfect steak is in this book. Franklin Steak goes to the source of the many beef options in the market today and explores cattle and meat processing and the various cuts of meat. As a hobby cook I loved this book and have a better understanding of the source of my meat and what truly matters as I cook it. It is a wonderful combination of science, technique, and amazing recipes. - S.L.

My Mexico City Kitchen by Gabriela Cámara

This gorgeous cookbook by Gabriela Cámara, the acclaimed owner/chef of Contramar in Mexico City and Cala in San Francisco, includes recipes served at her restaurants, but it is essentially a collection of the dishes that she serves her family and friends. From tortillas to tortas, tamales to flan, Cámara (who has a self-described “fanaticism for freshness”) shares recipes that are traditional and also inspired by seasonal ingredients. I love her voice throughout the book (including in her essays on sustainable seafood and her friendship with Diana Kennedy) and anticipate cooking her lush, delicious recipes for years to come. - S.B.
