Gosh, Pie & Whiskey just sounds fun, doesn't it? Like the kind of celebration you want to be at? I mean, you might get too stuffed on sugar or screw up the baking, you might get happy drunk while your sloshed bestie becomes the violent drunk; you might be toasting to your accomplishments and burying your emotions in filling. We drink, eat and read both to celebrate and commiserate, and here between these damn fun covers is a story for every single iteration of joy, despair, pie, and whiskey-based drinks. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus

Shea Serrano is apparently setting up a cottage industry of producing books that speak to 25-35 year olds everywhere. His first book, The Rap Yearbook, was a loving look back on the history of hip-hop. His newest title, Basketball (and other things) is even better.
Presented in a fully illustrated, oversized format, Basketball (and other things) might just be THE perfect basketball book. Each chapter tackles a hypothetical question, that Serrano then sets out to answer. Which Jordan is the BEST Jordan? Which player is remembered for the wrong thing? And perhaps, most importantly, was Kobe Bryant a dork? ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

Published: Doubleday Books - March 20th, 2018

Fiercely original novel about a woman who kills her husband and then assumes his identity. Masquerading as a man maimed by injuries suffered during the Second World War, she finds herself on a higher social plateau in a male dominated society and doors are opened to her that she dared not even approach before. She begins a relationship with a boozy taxi dancer with hopes of eventually acquiring a family. Tough, gritty, and compact, with passages of startling introspection, this is a story that will linger in your mind like an unsettling dream. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves

Walker is the rare author who applauds readers who doze off while reading his book. Why? Adequate sleep, Walker persuasively and enthusiastically argues, fends off disease, strengthens immune systems, enhances memory, aids mental acuity, promotes happiness, and is, broadly, infinitely more beneficial than any drug. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

This twisty psychological thriller blew my mind. Amber is in a coma, besieged by shards of memory, fighting her way to consciousness, while her would-be killer is in the room. You will not be able to drag your eyes away from this profoundly disturbing read. ~ Reviewed by Amy Palmer
