Upheaval by Jared Diamond

In his latest work, Diamond chose seven countries that have had major crises within the last 150 years and examines how they’ve dealt with those crises. He then extrapolates from how those countries have evolved since to examine the state of the world today and to project how our future might unfold. Diamond has tackled several broad, complex, and sensitive topics here with the same intelligent and accessible writing that has made his earlier book, Guns, Germs, and Steel, an enduring classic. Part history lesson, part editorial, and part science lecture, I found this to be a truly fascinating read that should become required reading. - Jade

Surprise, Kill, Vanish by Annie Jacobsen

This is my favorite type of book: fast paced, intelligent, and makes me exclaim, “Ohh, nooo!” out loud while reading it. It’s history from the angles you weren’t meant to see, making the text that much more alarming. Reading about the acceleration from covert training for WWII offense to the more recent happenings in the Middle East was equal parts horror and fascination. Already a fan of her writings, the amount of work Jacobsen (Area 51) put into this book is astounding. The clandestine nature of it all meant she went far beyond traditional research, and that effort shows in the details. - Rachel

The Gameshouse by Claire North

Claire North is as fascinating a subject as her novels. She has three different noms de plume. All of her novels are strange and wonderful, so I can’t wait to get my hands on this one. High-stakes games where the consequences are real? Heck yes! This was originally published as three novellas and it’ll be exciting to see it in its final form. - Ivy

Big Sky by Kate Atkinson

Picking up a novel by Kate Atkinson always feels like running into a long-lost best friend. My brain just clicks with hers, and soon I’m 100 pages in and marveling at her ability to twist between absurd humor and piercing empathy in mere sentences. PI Jackson Brodie is my favorite of her characters, and I couldn’t be happier to see Atkinson return to his world, and to see if just this once he might catch a break (I doubt it).

Ivy Aberdeen's Letter to the World by Ashley Herring Blake

When a tornado rips through Ivy’s home, her world is blown apart in more ways than one. In the chaos, Ivy’s journal is stolen—the journal where she keeps all her secrets, including her biggest one: Ivy likes girls, but she isn’t ready to tell anyone. As Ivy starts losing control of her secrets, her world changes in ways she could never have imagined. A gentle, sometimes heart-wrenching coming-of-age story about first love and family. - Katherine

Captain America, Volume 1: Winter in America by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Coates, the writer for the most recent and critically acclaimed run of Black Panther among many other things, tackles the Star-Spangled Avenger and boy what a ride this was. America is still reeling from a Hydra invasion that nearly stamped out freedom the world over, and though Cap wants nothing more than to be the hero, it’s not that simple. But trouble’s brewing that’s got Russia written all over it, and standing idly by was never Steve Rodgers’ strong suit. I can’t wait to see what happens next! - Jax

The Sun is a Compass by Caroline Van Hemert

When ornithologist Caroline Van Hemert decided she needed to get out of the lab and back into the wild, she and her husband embarked on the journey of a lifetime, spending six months traveling four thousand human-powered miles from Bellingham, Washington to the Alaskan Arctic. What follows is this incredible book, part outdoor adventure, part travel memoir, part nature writing, all grit and heart, as they canoe, hike, ski and raft their own way into the wilderness. I am by turns inspired and stunned by the knowledge and willpower needed on the trail, and by the beauty and wisdom left on the page. - Melinda

The Raven Tower by Ann Leckie

This novel is classic Ann Leckie. Her characters are understated and clever, her worldbuilding is rich, unique, and intimately detailed, and the mystery at the novel’s heart is slow to bloom but ultimately very satisfying. This is one hell of a fantasy world, and one I hope she continues to explore. If you like Leckie’s writing, you’ll love this novel. - Stuart

Mozart's Starling by Lyanda Lynn Haupt

Haupt deftly interweaves biography, science, music theory, and memoir in this fascinating look at a footnote in music history: Mozart’s pet starling. Previous knowledge of Mozart or love for starlings is not required. Though starlings are often considered the villains of the bird world, Haupt’s compassionate portrait reveals them as the extraordinary creatures that they are. - Katherine
