Lilith's Brood by Octavia Butler

The book is set in a dark future where an alien race has abducted the last surviving humans in hopes of helping them repopulate and revive an irradiated Earth. With a timeline that spans generations, Butler’s story was daring for her time and it’s still very relevant today, as she pushes the boundaries of race, gender, sexuality, and species. - Jade

Jungle of Stone by William Carlsen

In 1839, John Stephens and Frederick Catherwood trudged into the Guatemalan jungle in search of some rumored rocks that they had heard might be of interest. What they found forever changed Western understanding of the evolution of civilization. Carlsen weaves the two explorers’ life stories into his telling of how Stephens and Catherwood defied both the unforgiving Central American jungle and the xenophobic society of their time to expose the grandeur and remarkable engineering of the Mayas. - Jade

Grunt by Mary Roach

Rather than focusing on big guns and bravado, Roach sheds light on the less discussed aspects of the military and answers questions most of us would not think to ask. What makes the gadgets work and how are they tested? What do fashion designers look for when creating a military uniform? What advances have we made in genital reconstructive surgery? Her signature wit had me fascinating by topics I would never have otherwise explored. - Jade
