It's hard to believe, but it's already time to start compiling books to add to your spring reading lists. Soon enough, the temperatures will be warm enough for reading in the park, at an outdoor cafe, or maybe just with the windows wide open to let in the fresh air. Luckily, there are six new books out this week to add to your TBR pile for the months to come.
For nonfiction lovers, three new books this week will certainly be of interest: Educated, a memoir about one woman's childhood spent without going to school and an adulthood spent trying to get the best education possible; Blue Nights, a detailed investigation of the drugs used to treat mental illness, as told by someone who has a very personal stake in the matter; What Are We Doing Here?, a gut-punch of an essay collection, written by one of literature's greatest living thinkers, Pulitzer Prize winner Marilynne Robinson; and Eloquent Rage, a necessary, brave, and thoughtful examination of black female rage.
For fiction readers, two new books out this week should be on your radar: Sunburn, a modern crime noir that takes its inspiration from the work of James M. Cain, particularly The Postman Always Rings Twice; and Blood of a Thousand Stars, a fast-paced, heart-pounding young adult space opera that fans of all genres will enjoy.
So don't miss these six new books when compiling your reading list this week:
