Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come by Jessica Pan

As a lifelong introvert, this book made me snort-laugh whilst giving me cause for self-reflection. It also made me feel goodwill towards my fellow humans, a miracle for someone who sees strangers primarily as potential sources of anguish and irritation. Dare I say my heart grew a size or two, in true Grinch fashion? A warm, funny read for anyone feeling disconnected. - Ilana

The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America by Matt Kracht

There are birders, and then there are Birders. But what about the rest of us? We all come across that noisy blue pokey one that screams*, the herds of tiny round brown birbs**, and the tubby grey sacks with tiny heads*** but there hasn’t been a specific guide for us meh-birders until now. Crass, blunt, and incredibly accurate, this is a field guide begging to be gifted, loved, and worn down by use. (Either in the field or just showing it off to folks.) - Rahcel

The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher

Fisher was an actress, geek icon, and a professional screw-up who held nothing back from her audience. She called herself the product of “Hollywood incest” and never failed to find the humor in life. My nerdy little heart reveled in every moment. The secrets are as juicy as expected. More importantly, it’s full of the wit and self-deprecation we expected from our foul-mouthed princess. - Ivy

Everything's Trash, But It's Okay by Phoebe Robinson

Phoebe Robinson’s new collection of essays will make you laugh out loud and is a great tutorial on being trash but forgiving yourself for it while still being able to name the things that are #serioustrash. These essays get real about the sitch of our union—calling out nonintersectional feminists, internalized sexism, our workaholic culture, and toxic sosh meeds (social media). Written in classic Phoebe stream-of-consciousness style, this is the perfect antidote to the garbage fire of 2018. - Kelly

#SAD: Doonesbury in the Time of Trump by G.B. Trudeau

Trudeau continues to skewer Trump and his administration’s corruption with satire that helps relieve the strain of watching the dismantling of civility and democracy; the stoking of racist, xenophobic, misogynist ideas; the ache of worry about the environment and future of climate. His cartoons do what satire does so well: Reframe the “ideas” being presented to point out how absurd they really are. The book is a relief to read in the midst of an alarming political time. - A.P.

I Might Regret This by Abbi Jacobson

Abbi Jacobson (of Broad City fame) set off on a solo road trip from New York City to Los Angeles in an impulsive attempt to shake off heartache from a breakup. This quietly introspective and sweetly self-deprecating essay collection brings readers along on Jacobson’s cross-country trek and shows us that we’re never too old to figure out who we are. The raw honesty and startling vulnerability of this book took me by surprise, inspiring me to take stock of my own path. - Kelly

David Sedaris Diaries: A Visual Compendium

I’ve only seen a glimpse of this new collection of Sedaris’s work, but it looks like we’re all in for a treat. The author’s trademark wit and dark, self-deprecating humor are paired with photos and original artwork by Sedaris himself. This big compendium gives the reader a full, three-dimensional experience and is perhaps the closest any of us will ever get to being inside David Sedaris’s head. - Jade

Pattern Behavior by Natalie Kossar

Most self-respecting sewers know how to laugh at themselves when a project doesn’t go as planned or doesn’t look quite as chic as they had hoped. With Pattern Behavior, you can laugh at something other than yourself between projects. A crafty version of the classic postcard, with its saucy captions it lets you see what those vintage McCall’s girls are up to when you leave them alone in your pattern drawer. - Megan
