5Milk and Honey
We can’t recall the last time a book of poetry has gotten as much attention as Rupi Kaur’s MILK AND HONEY—but this one deserves all the discussion it’s receiving and more. In a collection of poetry and prose, Kaur beautifully and painfully depicts experiences of violence, abuse, love, loss, heartache, and femininity. This one should be on everyone’s shelves.

10Dear Mr. You
You’ve seen Mary-Louise Parker in “Weeds,” “The West Wing,” and countless other films and TV shows. In her memoir, DEAR MR. YOU, she gives readers a closer look at her life through a series of letters written to the men—real and hypothetical—who have informed the person she is today.
12The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl
With her new TV show, “Insecure,” premiering on HBO earlier this month, we’re even more taken by Issa Rae’s charm and humor. In her memoir, Rae waxes humorously on what it’s like to be unabashedly awkward in a world that regards introverts as hapless misfits and black as cool.
13The New Yorker Stories
When Ann Beattie began publishing short stories in the New Yorker in the mid-seventies, she was instantly celebrated for her original, precise, and prescient voice. In this collection of her stories, Beattie’s writing portrays subtle, wry, and unnerving observations about American families.
14Empire of the Summer Moon
EMPIRE OF THE SUMMER MOON is a stunning historical account of the forty-year battle between Comanche Indians and white settlers for control of the American West. Meticulously researched and thrillingly told, this sweeping narrative is a must-read for anyone interested in how the United States came into being.
