  1. If you enjoyed A Really Good Day, then you’ll love How to Change Your Mind.

    “Take an over-medicated, moody, middle-aged mother of four, add a month of experimental microdosing with LSD and it makes for A Really Good Day by Ayelet Waldman. This mesmerizing memoir of mental exploration tackles the taboo topic of drug use in our society, the frightening rise of prescription pills and the devastating addictions developing during the War on Drugs. A rollicking ride through the realm of self-realization, Waldman’s creative quest for sanity is painfully honest, hysterically funny and deeply human. I loved it!”

  2. Killers of the Flower Moon

    “In "Killers of the Flower Moon", David Grann recounts the tragic tale of the Osage Indian Nations decimation and deceit at the hands of their government appointed guardians. Motivated by money, morally corrupt and masterfully manipulative, the true role of these benevolent benefactors, perpetrators of mass murder, is still a mystery today. Granns detailed, yet deeply disturbing detective work, back to the birth of the FBI and the rise of J. Edgar Hoover, unveils an unimaginable injustice overlooked for 85 years. Let’s not allow this atrocious act against the Osage to slip back into obscurity ever again.”

  3. Heavy

    “Telling the truth has always been a radical and political act, but Kiese Laymon writes in Heavy with a rare, vulnerable unity of personal urgency and political clarity. This is a story about how our country’s lies and thefts weigh heavily on the hearts and souls of its black mothers and sons. About how dishonesty about white supremacy, money, sex, and violence threads through our most intimate relationships and causes us to become strangers to ourselves. If Heavy is about lies, it is also fundamentally about the redemptive power of truth, stories, language, and joy. If there’s a way out of the loneliness of being human in a country that does not value or support humanity, Laymon suggests, it is in the connection we find in the words we toss to one another, like lifelines, like laughter.”

  7. Every Note Played

    “From the author of "Still Alice", is a new novel about a man, Richard, being diagnosed with ALS. The story is narrated by Dennis Boutsikaris & Dagmara Dominczyk. Dennis speaks during the chapters from Richard's point of view while Dagmara speaks for Karina. Richard is a world renowned classical pianist; dating beautiful women, recently divorced from his wife, living in a fancy 4 story walk-up apartment in Boston. He is reveling in his independence. His wife Karina, a pianist in her own right, was a stay at home mom, raising their daughter Grace instead of pursuing her dream of becoming a jazz pianist. She resents Richard for it. Their daughter Grace has moved out of the house and is in college as Karina is trying to adjust to a life alone. Richard starts canceling tours, that's when Karina hears from friends that he is diagnosed with ALS. She visits him and doesn't believe it. Of course their old demons come up and they part on bad terms. A few months later Karina finds Richard in a pile of shit (literally) and realizes the diagnosis is real. The story is heart breakingly sad, funny, and real. ALS robs you of your freedom and independence. There is no cure. The cause is unknown. I learned so much about this disease outside of the ice bucket challenge. This story is a reminder that life is to short. The time to reflect on your life and stop procrastinating is now. As Richard learned life isn't stagnant and time is precious. Don't waste it.”

  9. By Hope Jahren / Narrated by Hope Jahren

    Lab Girl

    “This book has it all: nature, love, science, drama, heartbreak, joy, and plenty of dirt. Not since Cheryl Strayed's Wild have I read such a rich and compelling nonfiction narrative. Lab Girl is the story of Jahren's life in science, and her writing on the wonders of nature will renew your sense of awe. But more than that, it is an exploration of friendship, mental illness, parenthood, and the messiness of life. The only flaw -- these pages fly by too quickly, leaving you wondering what you could possibly read next that will be just as good.”
