You May Also Like: Taste in an Age of Endless Choice by Tom Vanderbilt

Ever wonder why you like the things you do? You didn’t think it was because you’re a special snowflake, did you? Apparently, science can explain this, and it’s a pretty interesting tale. A deep look into how we make decisions and choose the things we like. It’s not as simple as you might think...

Hunger by Roxane Gay

An important and very honest book about body issues, weight, and all that shit that weighs us down. Gay is already a brilliant writer (Bad Feminist came out in 2014). Hunger is an important look into emotional and psychological issues that surround what we consume.

Leonard by William Shatner

Apparently Shatner is a caring friend and observer who wrote the biography of fellow Trekkie and friend, Leonard Nimoy. Let's hope this one is good, for Shatner's sake. 

The Gene by Siddhartha Mukherjee

Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Emperor of All Maladies, Mukherjee does it again with this mind-blowing history of the human gene, and how it evolved. He answers some insane questions about human heredity and why we are who we are.

Everything Is Teeth by Evie Wyld

This graphic novel is a deeply moving memoir about love, loss, and, what it means to be part of a family. And, the best part, the nonfiction part of this novel? There are a lot of cool sharks.
