You know it's going to be a good week when there's a new Stephen King book to look forward to reading. On Tuesday, his latest thriller The Outsider hits bookstores everywhere, and it's exactly the kind of eerie, twisty-turny mystery that will get your mind-racing and heart-thumping over Memorial Day weekend. But that's not the only book you need to know this week.
In the world of YA novels, three major books are dropping: Mark Oshiro's Anger Is A Gift, a profound and candid meditation on race, police brutality, and the power of rage; Sandhya Menon's From Twinkle, With Love, a dreamy rom-com about a girl pursuing her dreams and her first love; and Claire Legrand's Furyborn, an epic fantasy about two very different young women fighting for the same cause in two different centuries.
If fiction isn't your thing: there's also two very different nonfiction books coming out that might just pique your interest. The first is John Carreyrou's Bad Blood, a riveting examination of the downfall of medical startup Theranos and its elusive CEO, Elizabeth Holmes. The second book is Franchesca Ramsey's Well, That Escalated Quickly, a memoir about her rise to fame as an online activist and what the responsibility of that role means to her.
