Our Dogs, Ourselves by Alexandra Horowitz

Dogs permeate every aspect of our lives, whether in the form of our own perfect companion or the neighbor’s pup who won’t stop barking. (We all know ours would never do such a thing!) Horowitz looks at the relationship between humans and dogs, from the language we use about canines to the ways we have them in our lives, their living conditions, breeding, and the act of keeping them at all. It’s a raw, honest look at what we’ve done to dogs since the beginning of their domestication and will give any dog owner, caretaker, or pet parent much to consider. - Rachel

The Day It Finally Happens by Mike Pearl

Of all the doomsday books I’ve read recently, this one is my favorite and Mike Pearl is my new favorite doom interpreter. Taking somewhat ridiculous concepts and humanizing them, he approaches those examples with the frank realism of the millennial generation: We’ve gotten through worse before and we’re still breathing. Ranging from Jurassic Park–type scenarios and gun bans to alien contact and a lifeless ocean, he conveys our options in intelligent, easy-to-understand science writing. - Rachel

On Writing by Stephen King

Told with the signature, self-deprecating wit of the old master, Stephen King's On Writing is required reading for anyone who considers (or wants to consider) themselves a writer. In these pages, King reviews all the writing tools he's developed over the years and stresses the importance of reading, rewriting, and devoting to one's self to a life of rejection. But it's not all hopeless, he also stresses that the road to literary success is paved with perseverance. - Aric

The Soul of an Octopus by Sy Montgomery

Octopuses are so cool, right? They can lie in wait for prey, camouflaged against the grains of the ocean floor or the craggy rock amid the coral! I was already on board the octopus train when I opened this book one rainy afternoon and found my interest forever expanded. The Soul of an Octopus's wonderful achievement will be making you understand and care for octopuses on an individual level. I didn't expect this book to feel so personal, to me, the author, and the octopus. - Tori

Rough Beauty by Karen Auvinen

This is a beautiful story of a woman trying to find her own with powerful prose and captivating descriptions of nature. Auvienen’s metaphorical writing is surprisingly accessible while painting a vivid picture of her process of self-discovery through a Thoreau-esque four years in the woods with just her dog. As a dog mom, I relate to their heartfelt relationship. - R.H.

Fly! by Mark Teague

This book is laugh-out-loud funny! Mama Bird thinks it’s time for Baby Bird to fly. So she attempts a coercive strategy to get her baby out of their apparently too comfy nest, but Baby Bird has other ideas, as readers will see in the pair’s comical illustrated speech-bubble dialogue. When Baby Bird’s brattiness lands it on the ground, the hilarity soars—as does Mama Bird’s frustration with Baby Bird’s antics. Sure to elicit laughs from adult and child readers alike. - Stephanie
