Mystery:

"Mañana"by William Hjortsberg

At its core, “Manana” is simple: A man wakes up next to a dead prostitute, and his wife is missing. Talk about drama. This thriller brings us on a dark ride of plot twists and turns through the underbelly of Mexico in the 1960s.

Romance:

 

"Girlin the Moonlight"by Charles Dubow

Dubow’s protagonist moves past romance into full-on obsession. We’re not talking about our obsession with Federal Donuts or Madonna’s constant clamoring over Drake — he’s grappling with a wreck-your-life fixation on an elusive woman.

Young Adult:

"None of the Above"by I.W. Gregorio

High school was tough for most of us, but it’s especially difficult for Kristin Lattimer when she discovers that, despite years of outwardly being a girl, she is intersex. All the things in her life that seemed so perfect — her boyfriend, her scholarship to college, her homecoming nomination — suddenly take on new meaning as she moves forward from her diagnosis.

Food:

"The Outdoor Table"by AprilMcKinney

This summer, don’t be confined to your boring dining room table at mealtime. And no more dinners on the couch in front of “Simpsons” reruns — that’s not just us, right? McKinney’s new cookbook is full of inspired seasonal recipes that are portable and picnic-approved.

Inspirational:

"A Curious Mind: The Secret to a Bigger Life"by Brian Grazer

We’re always up for a little self-improvement, and this book isn’t your typical self-help fare. Writer, producer and collector of Oscars and Emmys Brian Grazer wrote a quirky and insightful book about his rousing conversations with brilliant minds from every industry that we’re excited to check out.

Buzziest:

"Go Set a Watchman"by Harper Lee

There’s palpable anticipation — and a tinge of controversy — surrounding the release of Lee’s new novel. Though the manuscript was written over half a century ago, it was just discovered last year. Is Lee somehow being exploited, or does she want to release this book? Is it a cash-grab? Either way, it’s from the author of “To Kill a Mockingbird” — we’ll be devouring this one in a single sitting. It’s out July 14.
