- For an enchanting memoir that will leave you loving soil in a way never thought possible: Lab Girl by Hope Jahren
- For a terrific coming of age story of a group of adult friends: The Gunners by Rebecca Kauffman
- For a well-paced mystery that will immerse you in a small town in Japan: Rainbirds by Clarissa Goenawan
