The Immortality Key by Brian Muraresku

Classicist Brian Muraresku tried to move on from his obsession with dead languages and became a lawyer, but couldn’t stop his mind from wandering back to the ancient world. He became fixated on the Eleusian Mysteries of the Greeks, and a psychoactive concoction imbibed in the chthonic ceremony called the kykeon. Told with a conversational tone, and using years of extensive research, Muraresku’s narrative sheds new light on the origins of religious experience. - Aric

The Fact of a Body by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich

Marzano pens an absorbing and complex investigation of trauma, truth, and the stories we tell ourselves. As Marzano-Lesnevitch shifts from her own narrative to that of a decades-old murder, her attention to minor, seemingly insignificant details brings the twining narratives to life. This modern true-crime classic is both furious and compassionate, and everything I didn't know I needed in a book! - Brooks

Riverine by Angela Palm

With some of the most beautiful writing I have ever read, Palm tells the story of growing up alongside the Kankakee river in Indiana. Poetically retracing her path to adulthood and escape from her hometown, her tale is countered by that of her childhood love - now serving a life sentence for murder. These two hauntingly distinct narratives serve as a reminder of the impact our geographies forever have on us. - Magnolia

We Gon' Be Alright by Jeff Chang

Published in 2016, this slim but powerful volume continues to hold relevance to expand your understanding of race, equality, and paths forward. Jeff Chang writes with clear and fluid prose with rigorously sourced facts to excavate and historically contextualize artifacts of our culture: political correctness to #BlackLivesMatter, Donald Trump, and Beyonce. I started this book thinking I already knew what it had to teach; I closed it humbled and much better educated. - Jocelyn

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Elaborate magical heist? Brilliantly realized world inspired by historical Amsterdam, filled with complex characters coming together for the pay-off of their lives—and maybe to save the world? I devoured this novel of criminals and misfits who refuse to accept a world that won’t accept them. A follow-up to Bardugo’s Shadow and Bone series that stands on its own (and may in fact be the best place to start, if you're new to the Grishaverse).. - Jocelyn

The Firekeeper's Daughter by Angeline Boulley

A teenage girl, Danuis, whose mother's family is white and father's family is Ojibwe, gets pulled into an undercover FBI meth investigation. The author wanted to write a "Native Nancy Drew" and Danuis is a heroine you want to root for—her culture and connection to community is her strength. With a distinct sense of place, this taut thriller is almost impossible to put down. - Celeste

The Seventh Mansion by Maryse Meijer

Full disclosure: I used to be a bookseller with Maryse. When she moved on my life got a little less weird. If you, too, are missing a little weird in your life, or feel like you haven't recently read enough books that feature ossophilia and radical environmental activism, then check out this wonderfully strange book. It brought my weird quotient up by seven points! - Dave

A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine

This debut space opera makes me remember why I love the genre. Interstellar politics, murder, espionage, and the ethics of empire and technology collide in a fascinating world where memory and heritage are suspect in the face of longing for a culture and place not your own. Martine’s characters pull you into a compelling narrative that’s both philosophical and thrilling. - Jocelyn

The Long Call by Ann Cleeves

A vibrant British seaside town is rocked with the mysterious murder. This character-driven mystery kept me turning pages for the secrets and complexities of a community of artists, do-gooders, bird watchers, spiritual seekers—and a haunted detective named Matthew Venn, whose husband may be at the center of everything. I’m ready for the next installment in this new series. - Jocelyn
