Exhalation by Ted Chiang

Ted Chiang is one of the best modern speculative fiction writers, and his writing encompasses the breadth of the human experience. The stories in this collection are subtle, introspective, and incredibly smart, and Chiang masterfully explores themes of science, theology, fate, heartbreak, and love. I can’t recommend this highly enough for fans of literary science fiction. - Stuart

Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore

The oldest soul in the world just can’t seem to reach perfection. He was a disciple of the Buddha, a superhero on an alien prison planet, a wise fisherman… but every single time, Milo doesn’t get it right. On a positive note, every time he dies, he reunites with his girlfriend, Death (who also goes by the name Susie). This book is totally goofy, sweet and wise. I loved the ending. - Jason

Tomorrow Will Be Different by Sarah McBride

McBride’s story of self-discovery, determination, and love made me check my privilege, cheer, and cry. She earnestly and intelligently reflects on her life, from coming out as a trans woman, to walking to corridors of power, to falling in love and losing her husband. This compelling read highlights how far we still have to go towards actual liberty and justice for all. - Jocelyn

No God But God by Reza Aslan

Aslan is one of the smartest religious scholars out there. This book reads as both a study of Islam and a commentary forces impacting religion in the modern world (he is especially adroit about extremism and orthodoxy). His perspective will make you fall in love with the beauty of the world’s second-largest religion and think deeply about how we navigate faith in the 21st century. - Clara

The Black Count by Tom Reiss

General Dumas’ story deserves epic operas and an acclaimed HBO series it’s so thrilling and adventurous. As the son of a Marquis and a Haitian slave, Dumas rose to the highest ranks of the French army and commanded the respect of nations. Reiss’ quest to uncover Dumas’ story is a joy to read and discovering the seeds of his son’s novels is an eye-opening pleasure. - Clara

I Am I Am I Am by Maggie O'Farrell

Most of us walk through our daily lives without thinking too much about our mortality, but O’Farrell’s connection to life has been more tenuous than most. Over seventeen essays, she examines the experiences that have taught her how thin the membrane between life and death really is. Told in elegant prose that will resonate in your heart, this book is, ultimately, incredibly life-affirming. - Jess

The Uninhabitable Earth by David Wallace-Wells

A comprehensive and profound treatise on climate. Though much of the information paints a bleak future, I felt inspired to action upon reading. If it’s too much for you, buy it for the person in your life who can handle the darkest truths. This book feels important.  It is my early pick to win a 2019 Pulitzer. I am recommending it to anyone who will listen. - Jason

Notes from a Young Black Chef by Kwame Onwuachi

Chef Kwame Onwuachi partners with Joshua David Stein to present his life on the page rather than in a dish—though we’ve got those too. His early days affected by love and violence, the Bronx and Nigeria, and a lucrative career dealing drugs, Onwuachi shows with reflective and unflinching honesty a journey shaped by family and heritage, and a food-centric destiny embraced with talent and hustle. Fully satisfied, I look forward to the next taste Onwuachi will share. - Jocelyn
