The League of Regrettable Superheroes by Jon Morris

This book is a hoot and a half. Not all superheroes make it to the big screen and win the day; some of them fade into obscurity for a reason. Collected here is a selection of comic book history's worst (best?) goofs. Meet Bee Man, the Clown, the Eye, Lady Satan, Kangaroo Man, and more. - J

The Deluxe Transitive Vampire by Karen Elizabeth Gordon

You’ll want to read this one just for the extravagantly gothic yet entrancingly informative example sentences. This on the past participle: You won’t get far in those corrugated pantaloons, sire. And: Sylvia wantonly splits infinitives, often with unheard-of verbs. This beautiful book is so much fun that you’ll learn some grammar despite yourself. - Dave

A More Beautiful and Terrible History by Jeanne Theoharis

Theoharis established herself as the writer of the long civil rights era (extending our views of the historical forces and outcomes of the civil rights movement beyond the small window of the 1960s). In this book she explores how the legacy of civil rights has been reshaped, used, and invoked to paint a fuller picture of national identity and where the struggle for equality is headed. - Clara

The Secret Loves of Geek Girls ed. by Hope Nicholson

Having backed the original Kickstarter for this book, I was thrilled to hear it was being released by Dark Horse. It's full of stories of joy and heartbreak and fandom and the intersection of the 3. Growing up as a geek girl is hard, it's good to hear stories from people who experienced life and love as a geek AND a girl. - J

Shaya: An Odyssey of Food by Alon Shaya

Part memoir, part cookbook, each page radiates with feeling and flavor. Beautifully written vignettes of Shaya’s life and the people who shaped his cooking lead into clear and visceral recipes. Simple instructions powerfully evoke flavor, texture, aroma, and heat at every step of the dish. This book is warm and delicious and will keep you reading and, (hopefully) eating. - Jocelyn

The League of Regrettable Sidekicks by Jan Morris

This book is a hoot and a half. Not all superheroes make it to the big screen and win the day; some of them fade into obscurity for a reason, taking their goofy, clumsy, badly named sidekicks with them. Collected here is a selection of comic book history's worst (best?) goofs. Meet Stampy, Fatman, Kid Tyrant, Peep, and Frobisher. - J

Sunday Suppers at Lucques by Suzanne Goin

Totally deserving of its cult-like following, Suppers celebrates seasonal cooking in a sophisticated, sort-of-serious-but-totally-worth-it way.  Recipes like Goin's Halibut with Fingerlings, Fava Beans, Meyer Lemon & Creme Fraiche require some work, but are extraordinarily good. Whenever I'm planning a special meal, this is the first book I turn to. One of my favorite cookbooks of all time. - S.B.

Garden Wild by Andre Baranowski

My favorite gardens are the wild, untamed ones that barely look like gardens at all, the gardens that reflect their local environment instead of fighting against it. This book is a celebration of just that. Andre Baranowski’s beautiful photographs take you on a tour of twelve gorgeous gardens that might finally inspire you to ditch your lawn for good. - Katherine
