Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds & Shape Our Futures by Merlin Sheldrake

Who better to engagingly inform about the breadth and depth of fungus than Merlin Sheldrake, the fungal biologist. This book features charming illustrations, drawn with a mushroom-derived ink, and anecdotes whose topics range from the jungles of Panama to mycology conferences in the Pacific Northwest to the work done in psychedelic research labs. Sheldrake embraces not knowing all the answers and poses many questions about the radical possibilities of fungi as agents of change in the realms of environment, mental health, biological research, and more.

The Undocumented Americans by Karla Cornejo Villavicencio

I cannot recommend The Undocumented Americans highly enough—it is beautifully written, scathing in its critique of our country’s culpability, and real, real, real. Cornejo Villavicencio listens carefully and compassionately to the stories of people so often unheard and captures the complexity of their lives in raw, poignant pieces, giving a fullness to the undocumented Latinx experience beyond the narrow tropes meant to contain it. Interspersed throughout is her own story as an undocumented child immigrant from Ecuador and how she is continually coming to understand its impact on her life. Her voice is powerful—its service as a vessel for the many who are silenced is tenfold. This book is eye-opening, life-affirming, and change-making, if you listen.

The Ghosts of Eden Park The Bootleg King, the Women Who Pursued Him, and the Murder That Shocked Jazz-Age America by Karen Abbott

Renowned historian Karen Abbott uses a wealth of primary source documents and her impeccable prose to bring to vivid life the story of millionaire kingpin bootlegger George Remus, US Assistant Attorney General Mabel Walker Willebrandt, and their Prohibition-era world. Abbott meticulously chronicles these larger-than-life characters’ journeys in this storied time, evocatively interspersing tantalizing courtroom testimony that hints at the scandal, betrayal, and murder to come. A true crime saga written to keep you turning pages.

Tantalizing, dreamy, fresh, and absorbing, the newest installment of the Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes series will be a welcome escape for Laurie R. King fans this summer.

Longtime readers will love the dive into a familiar character’s past (never underestimate the white-haired ladies!), King’s enthralling portrayal of Holmes, and the clearheaded Russell’s continuous curiosity.

Recursion by Blake Crouch

In 2018, NYPD robbery division detective Barry Sutton answers a “jumper” call. The woman has indeed been robbed—of her son, her husband, her entire life. She is suffering from FMS—False Memory Syndrome—a mysterious disease that makes those afflicted remember two different lifetimes simultaneously. Meanwhile, in 2008, the brilliant neuroscientist Helena Smith receives unlimited funding from a recluse billionaire to study memory to cure Alzheimer’s. Thus begins Crouch’s mind-blowing, convoluted, and surprisingly romantic science fiction thriller, which grapples with profound themes of memory, identity, and time, asking us what are we willing to sacrifice to rewrite the past—and what will remain of us if we do.

Conjure Women by Afia Atakora

The characters in this transporting book, set before and after the Civil War, still haunt my thoughts. We get to know a mother and daughter—midwives and healers—and the community they serve. Their magic is both a blessing, and a curse and the people who need them can be desperate to believe or quick to condemn. This is a story of people, their overlapping realities, their longing for security, and the unjust world and its rules, rules that we still deal with today. You will love the characters, be curious about what’s true and what is conjured, and shake your head with grief as the story comes to a close.

Published: The Dial Press - March 10th, 2020

Glennon Doyle had just published her latest memoir about rehabilitating her marriage with her unfaithful husband when she fell in love with Abby Wambach and everything shifted. What followed was a full shedding of the constructs that had been holding her back from trusting herself: her understanding of marriage, religion, parenting, love, and being good, being enough. Untamed is Glennon’s new memoir, her love story, her journey to her true self, and her gift to us – her writing is so light, so intimate, honest, and available that it becomes all of our journeys, and we are all the better for it. —Melinda

Published: Random House - February 25th, 2020

It’s tempting to say that Yellow Bird is kin to Killers of the Flower Moon, but that diminishes the experiences of everyone involved in said events and books. There is water and oil in Yellow Bird, massive flooding and fracking that loosens the literal roots of the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation. There is Lissa Yellow Bird — felon drug addict mother daughter frantic — who hunts for the missing while forgetting about her own family. Yellow Bird is a knot of politics and history, culture and crime, and the years of intergenerational trauma threading it all together. I read it in a day, unable to tear myself away from the stories and memories shared within. —Rachel

Paperbacks From Hell by Grady Hendrix

I don’t remember the last time I’ve hugged a book so much. A wonderful combination of history, trivia (like did you know how the gift card industry influenced aspects of the cover art?), social commentary, and art design, all tied together in over-the-top covers and seemingly ridiculous plots. Perfect for fans of horror and sci-fi, this book will make your wish list grow exponentially. - Rachel

Disappearing Earth by Julia Phillips

When two young sisters disappear, the entire Kamchatka Peninsula goes on high alert. But as the months drag on and no leads materialize, hope wears thin. Told from the perspective of a variety of characters, this is a story about family, identity, grief, and the ways those themes connect us. Phillips’ debut is a stunning portrait of an isolated, rarely discussed corner of the world. - Jade
