His Favorites by Kate Walbert

Sometimes the most satisfying reads are the ones that can pack a punch in short form. Kate Walbert’s new novel, His Favorites, is a telling novella of a #metoo moment in the hallways of an elite New England boarding school. The story of Jo, a young girl facing the fact that she accidentally killed her best friend before facing the attention and abuse of a teacher at the school where she flees to rebuild her life, showcases how women not only carry these injustices but also carry the weight of their inner lives through these moments. A relevant and powerful tale. - Casey

The Tangled Tree by David Quammen

David Quammen takes on the unraveling and explanation of discoveries in molecular biology, reminding us of what we thought we knew about evolution and the folks who continue to push the boundaries. He’s one of my favorite science communicators, due to his ability to convey complexities to the general public, and in this book, tackles the concept of infective hereditary (getting genes from viral infections rather than direct ancestors). None of that is in my preferred wheelhouse of flora and fauna, but there is a conversational narrative here that made the information easier to take in and process. - Rachel

The Code of the Samurai by Thomas Cleary

The first and foremost lesson of the Bushido Shushinsu, or Code of the Samurai, is to keep death in your mind at all times. This may seem a bit dramatic, but it allows the warrior to remember that every action is important and all life is precious. With riffs on a broad range of subjects from finance to laziness, The Code of the Samurai is a must read for any modern warrior. - Aric

Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse

This is a riveting novel that, while at times a slow burn, builds relentlessly to a brutal, heartbreaking climax. Roanhorse has created a captivating world built from Navajo culture and mythology, and her novel shines with a superb story and gorgeously rendered (and heartbreakingly real) characters. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a captivating, innovative, post-apocalyptic science-fiction/fantasy novel. - Stuart

Enigma by Catherine Coulter

While I’m not familiar with the earlier books in this series, that fact didn’t get in the way of my enjoyment. A wonderful mix of kidnappings, escapees, and amazing shenanigans, Enigma managed to hit all of my favorites elements in a mystery. An FBI team is pulled in two directions: one half chasing down a recently escaped Most Wanted, while the rest struggle to find a missing baby taken from under their noses. Toss in a comatose John Doe, and your summer beach read is complete! - Rachel

The Wolf Wilder by Katherine Rundell

A wolf wilder “untames” wolves that have been kept as pets for aristocrats, and the young Feodora takes her jobs as a wolf wilder seriously.

Rome: A History in Seven Sackings by Matthew Kneale

Author Matthew Kneale uses the many sackings of Rome as a genius framing device for studying one city over 2500 years. Each time Rome gets sacked we pause to learn about the lives of the Romans of the era, the regional and political factors leading to the conflict, and the transformations made in the crucible of war. Rome comes alive as clearly in 387 b.c.e. as it does in 1943 in this brilliant ode to the city and its history. - Clara
