Inheritance by Dani Shapiro

Shapiro tells the story of her surprise ancestry test that revealed that her father is not her biological father and therefore her identity, especially being raised deeply connected to Judaism, may not be as defining as she had believed. This book moved me as it dove deep into belonging, identity, family secrets, parenting, and the ties that bind in our ever-connected world. - Casey

Cocktail Codex by Alex Day

I think of myself as a cocktail enthusiast rather than a snob, and I found kindred spirits in the gentlemen behind the NYC bar Death & Co. They break down 5 basic cocktails into each component, and then show you ways the drinks can be altered. With recipes and recommendations for good, locally sourced spirits, my favorite aspect is learning how to go about mixing things up yourself! - Jax

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

Though the movie was universally panned, the book remains one of the best-written, most intriguing works of fiction of the past twenty years. Composed of six connected novellas that take place over vastly different eras, both past and future, each written in a different style, the book is a essentially a brilliant survey of humankind. One of my all-time favorites. - Rico
