Three Girls from Bronzeville: A Uniquely American Memoir of Race, Fate, and Sisterhood by Dawn Turner

Dawn Turner, notable Chicago journalist, traces the memories of her childhood growing up in Bronzeville, a neighborhood founded with great hope during the Great Migration to ultimately decay under the weight of economic, social, and racial inequities. Turner delivers a powerful, introspective, and heartfelt account of the trajectory of young women who may have had each other but ultimately faced differing levels of support, opportunity, and redemption. —Casey

The End of Everything by Katie Mack

A book about the end of life, the universe, and everything? Right NOW? Pop-culture references and complex scientific concepts (made absolutely relatable and understandable!) aside, physicist Katie Mack is funny, educated, incredibly smart—and will make you feel the same. Mack’s passion will hook you through to the last (hilarious) footnote, leaving you exhilarated for what is still to be discovered (and following @AstroKatie on Twitter) before the end. - Jocelyn

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller

This timeless classic about an American bombardier in WWII fighting a system in which everything is against him is perfect for those of us who have felt trapped in an endless cycle of defeat this past year. Confusing and frustrating in the most coherent way possible, Catch-22 excellently embodies the absurdity of trying to navigate between survival and duty.

Ninefox Gambit by Yoon Ha Lee

This is an intricate, unique, action-packed military sci-fi with a touch of space opera. Space battles line up next to political intrigue, while characters both living and dead wrestle with conscience and ideals. Yoon Ha Lee has created something that is familiar but at the same time unlike anything else I’ve ever read, which lingers long after the last page. - Jocelyn
