The Wave by Susan Casey

Casey’s quest to understand more about waves takes her all over the world. Guided by insight from the people who know waves most intimately—surfers, mariners, and wave scientists—Casey discovers that waves have a far larger effect on humanity than most realize. Fun, engaging, and sometimes frightening, Casey takes a rather obscure topic and makes it a truly exciting. - Jade

Daemon Voices by Philip Pullman

A compendium of the author’s essays and talks spanning decades, this volume feels nearly as rich and valuable as the folk and fairy tales that Pullman loves. A real treasure for anyone who enjoys meditating on the power of storytelling, with some delightful insights into Pullman’s own creative mindset that have had more of an impact on my own writing than any ‘how-to’ guide. - Ilana

Bridge of Clay by Markus Zusak

The rough and tumble lives of the five Dunbar brothers include a house without a father or mother, a pet mule named Achilles, and daily tests of brute strength and will that end in bloody feet and black eyes. Still, the love between brothers is something no one can come between—until a figure from their past returns to break one brother apart from the rest. Markus Zusak, acclaimed author of The Book Thief, spins a heartbreaking tale of boys and men, mothers and fathers, pain and the space for forgiveness. Ages 14 and up. - Tera

Cook Like a Pro by Ina Garten

I don’t know how Ina Garten does it, but she’s out with her eleventh Barefoot Contessa cookbook, and it is as awesome as ever. From seriously delicious appetizers (Warm Dates with Blue Cheese and Prosciutto) to fabulous salads, sides, and main dishes (Chicken Thighs with Creamy Mustard Sauce), Garten excels at putting together recipes that are super appealing, doable, and delicious. I just can’t quit her—and would never want to try. - S.B.

Cocktail Codex: Fundamentals, Formulas, Evolutions by Alex Day, Nick Fauchald, David Kaplan

I think of myself as a cocktail enthusiast rather than a snob, and I found kindred spirits in the gentlemen behind the New York City bar Death & Co. They break down each of the five basic cocktails so that you understand each component, and then show you ways the drinks can be altered to suit your taste and the occasion. There are plenty of recipes and recommendations for good, locally sourced spirits. My favorite aspect, though, is that they teach you how to go about mixing things up yourself! - Jax

The Food of Northern Thailand by Austin Bush

“Until now there has not been a comparable book in the English language that dives so deeply into the food culture of Northern Thailand. Austin has compiled an incredible collection of recipes and insights, as shown to him by the generous and talented cooks of the region whose stories he tells, highlighting their proud culinary techniques and traditions along the way. The Food of Northern Thailand is now my go-to reference for this amazing cuisine; it should be yours, too.” —Andy Ricker, chef/owner Pok Pok Restaurants
