Don't trust the star ratings (they're skewed!) -- this book is great. It helped me dig out of a rough winter. It's funny, thoughtful, and the story is fabulous.

A Natural History of the Senses by Diane Ackerman

If you liked Omnivore's Dilemma and Botany of Desire, then why haven't you already read this book?! It's well researched, has an insane amount of absolutely fascinating information that will make you a hit at parties, and is followed up recently by Ackerman's A Natural History of Love (which I cannot wait to read).

Annihilation (Southern Reach Trilogy #1) by Jeff VanderMeer

This book is ridiculous! I absolutely loved it, and cannot wait for the second installation. Beware: You will get stressed out while reading this, but, if all goes well, your mind will also be blown and you will insist that everyone around you also read it. I don't want to say too much about the plot because the less you know in advance, the better. READ THIS!

Ballad by Blexbolex

This book is STUNNING! And it isn't just for children. It would make an absolutely lovely gift for book lovers or visual artists of all ages. I keep looking through the pages and wanting to Instagram every single one.

Wheelmen: Lance Armstrong, the Tour de France, and the Greatest Sports Conspiracy Ever by Reed Albergotti and Vanesa O'Connell

I cannot stop talking about this book.

It's well-researched and written like a soap opera. It's been a while since doping in cycling has been in the news, but I remember a lot of what this book describes as it happened in real time -- and having the back story is eye-opening, both disappointing and inspiring, and simply shocking. That said, I'm so happy to have gotten to learn about Greg LeMond!
