Believe the hype – this book is for you, whether master chef or master microwaver. More than recipes (though we’ve got that too) Nosrat shares with you the secret: cooking is salt, fat, acid, and heat.

As You Wish by Cary Elwes

The Princess Bride is a very nearly perfect movie, As You Wish will make your millionth viewing even better. Elwes gives us a look at the great churning machine that is movie making. There's a bit about the filming of the Miracle Max scene that had me snorting my drink out my nose, I was laughing so hard. The entire book is worth that chapter. - J

Between the Lines written by Sandra Neil Wallace, illustrated by Bryan Collier

I can’t read this picture book without tearing up. Ernie Barnes had a lifelong wish to be an artist but poverty kept him tied to paid work. His talent at football took him into the professional leagues, where coaches often caught him sketching on the bench. Facing constant adversity, Ernie refused to settle for what the world told him he should do. Bryan Collier, one of my favorite illustrators, created the mixed media art, and it’s vital and delightful and surprising on every page. This is a powerful story of stamina and inner strength. Grades 2–5. - Tera

Ages 13 and up. - Tera

Make Something Good Today by Erin & Ben Napier

Erin and Ben Napier have gained a huge following from their show, Home Town, remodeling houses in their small hometown of Laurel, Mississippi, but fans may not know that they worked hard to rebuild and strengthen their community long before they landed on HGTV. In Make Something Good Today, the Napiers share that story and their years-long commitment to using their carpentry and design skills to transform homes into personal spaces that are comfortable, beautiful, and bring joy and pride to the owners—which, in turn, has made their town prosper. The charm and ease of this creative couple, so evident on their show, come shining through on the pages of their book. - S.B.

Small Space Style by Whitney Leigh Morris

Whitney Morris is a firm believer that one doesn’t need to live large to live beautifully. She practices what she preaches in the tiny 362-foot home she shares with her husband, son, and two dogs in Venice Beach. On The Tiny Canal Cottage blog and in this book, Morris shares her tips for living well in a small space. Refreshingly, she does not think that the answer lies entirely in clever storage solutions, but rather in not having more stuff than you need. She also has smart advice about sticking to a color palette (even with dog toys!) so that when things are strewn about, they don’t look out of place. Small Space Style will help you create a home you’ll love, no matter the size. - S.B.
