Title: Ordinary Girls (2019)

Author: Jaquira Díaz

Genre: Memoir, LGBTQ

Why you’ll love it: Jaquira Díaz takes us through her tumultuous girlhood, sparing us nothing she wasn’t spared—her mother’s mental illness and addiction, her family’s fracturing on both sides of the water separating Miami Beach and Puerto Rico, the violence perpetrated on and around her, and her attempts to inflict it upon herself—resulting in a wildly affecting, powerfully unflinching, absolutely necessary memoir of an extraordinary woman.

Title: Man’s Search for Meaning (1946)

Author: Viktor E. Frankl

Genre: Memoir

Why you’ll love it: In one of the most influential books of the 20th century, Dr. Viktor Frankl describes the horrific experiences of internment in Nazi concentration camps, including Auschwitz. Dr. Frankl maintains that our primary drive in life is neither pleasure nor power, but the “pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.” This harrowing but remarkable story stands as a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.

Title: The Warehouse (2019)

Author: Rob Hart

Genre: Fiction

Why you’ll love it: Thrilling story of corporate espionage wrapped up in a  powerful, realistic, dystopian depiction of the impact of technology and  e-commerce monopolies on our freedom, daily life and self-identity.
