What Have We Done by Alex Finlay (Mar. 7)

"Anyone who loves thrillers as much as I do already knows this one is coming. If it's anywhere near as good as The Night Shift, I will be hiding under the covers. Alex Finlay is terrifying in the best way!" -Romina Raimundo

Old Babes in the Wood: Stories by Margaret Atwood (Mar. 7)

"I like having a book of short stories with me for little reading breaks, and Atwood's reflections on family, marriage, loss, memory and the essence of shared life sound like the perfect companion." -Fernanda Gorgulho

Birnam Wood by Eleanor Catton (Mar. 7)

"A psychological eco-thriller about a bunker-building billionaire at potential odds with a guerrilla gardening group by Booker Prize winner Eleanor Catton. What more do you need to know?" -Erica Landau

Rootless by Krystle Zara Appiah (Mar. 14)

"From college sweethearts to a failing marriage that ends in a spousal disappearance, I'm sure this book is going to be a rollercoaster of emotions and I'm here for it." -Iliyah Coles

Hello Beautiful by Ann Napolitano (Mar. 14)

"As someone from a big complex family, I'm naturally drawn to family sagas with emotional depth, and this tribute to Little Women, a timeless classic, is definitely going on my packing list for my next visit home." -Fernanda Gorgulho

Y/N by Esther Yi (Mar. 21)

"A Korean American living in Berlin follows her K-pop-obsessed heart to Seoul in search of her idol? Good for her! I love this for her, and for me, because I know I'm going to burn through every page of what will surely be a surreal and absurd journey." -Erica Landau

Lone Women by Victor Lavalle (Mar. 21)

"While horror isn't typically my go-to, I'm excited about this magical suspense novel about sisterhood and survival." -Fernanda Gorgulho


Funny, You Don't Look Funny: Judaism and Humor from the Silent Generation to Millennials by Jennifer Caplan (Mar. 1)

"Finally, a book my family may not argue about." -Erica Landau

Saving Time: Discovering a Life Beyond the Clock by Jenny Odell (Mar. 7)

"I'm a pretty anxious person and never feel like I have enough time, so Jenny Odell’s perspective in Saving Time will be both enlightening and inspirational." -Romina Raimundo

Sweet Enough: A Baking Book by Alison Roman (Mar. 28)

"Like a lot of us, I got into baking during the pandemic. I definitely wouldn't call myself a baking expert, but I'm hoping that the effortless dessert recipes in this cookbook will make me seem like one." -Iliyah Coles

Spoken Word: A Cultural History by Joshua Bennett (Mar. 28)

"I recently visited the Nuyorican for the first time and fell in love with spoken word poetry all over again. It's a division of the Black Arts movement that doesn't get taught enough, so I'm excited to learn more." -Iliyah Coles

Birdgirl: Looking to the Skies in Search of a Better Future by Mya-Rose Craig (Mar. 28)

"Coming from a family of bird lovers, I was immediately drawn to this memoir from birder and environmental activist, Mya-Rose Craig." -Emmanuel Hidalgo-Wohlleben
