Paperbacks From Hell by Grady Hendrix

I don’t remember the last time I’ve hugged a book so much. A wonderful combination of history, trivia (like did you know how the gift card industry influenced aspects of the cover art?), social commentary, and art design, all tied together in over-the-top covers and seemingly ridiculous plots. Perfect for fans of horror and sci-fi, this book will make your wish list grow exponentially. - Rachel

Medallion Status by John Hodgman

John Hodgman (Vacationland, The Daily Show) wants you to know that for a while there, he was famous, but not that famous. In his latest book, Hodgman uses his razor wit and strong sense of irony to teach some of the lessons he’s learned as a guy who is kind of famous, like the finer points of wearing a nude suit, the pain of being typecast, and the perks of having Platinum Medallion Status. - Aric

Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come by Jessica Pan

As a lifelong introvert, this book made me snort-laugh whilst giving me cause for self-reflection. It also made me feel goodwill towards my fellow humans, a miracle for someone who sees strangers primarily as potential sources of anguish and irritation. Dare I say my heart grew a size or two, in true Grinch fashion? A warm, funny read for anyone feeling disconnected. - Ilana

The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America by Matt Kracht

There are birders, and then there are Birders. But what about the rest of us? We all come across that noisy blue pokey one that screams*, the herds of tiny round brown birbs**, and the tubby grey sacks with tiny heads*** but there hasn’t been a specific guide for us meh-birders until now. Crass, blunt, and incredibly accurate, this is a field guide begging to be gifted, loved, and worn down by use. (Either in the field or just showing it off to folks.) - Rahcel

The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher

Fisher was an actress, geek icon, and a professional screw-up who held nothing back from her audience. She called herself the product of “Hollywood incest” and never failed to find the humor in life. My nerdy little heart reveled in every moment. The secrets are as juicy as expected. More importantly, it’s full of the wit and self-deprecation we expected from our foul-mouthed princess. - Ivy

Everything's Trash, But It's Okay by Phoebe Robinson

Phoebe Robinson’s new collection of essays will make you laugh out loud and is a great tutorial on being trash but forgiving yourself for it while still being able to name the things that are #serioustrash. These essays get real about the sitch of our union—calling out nonintersectional feminists, internalized sexism, our workaholic culture, and toxic sosh meeds (social media). Written in classic Phoebe stream-of-consciousness style, this is the perfect antidote to the garbage fire of 2018. - Kelly

#SAD: Doonesbury in the Time of Trump by G.B. Trudeau

Trudeau continues to skewer Trump and his administration’s corruption with satire that helps relieve the strain of watching the dismantling of civility and democracy; the stoking of racist, xenophobic, misogynist ideas; the ache of worry about the environment and future of climate. His cartoons do what satire does so well: Reframe the “ideas” being presented to point out how absurd they really are. The book is a relief to read in the midst of an alarming political time. - A.P.
