Diana is a witch, though she prefers to live her life without magic. A professor of history, she wants to conduct her research in peace and is successful until a lost alchemical text finds its way into her hands. The tome is clearly enchanted, so Diana sends it back into the bowels of the library in order to keep up with her personal “no magic” rule. But the trouble has just begun. Soon, hoards of witches, daemons, and vampires join her in the library, hoping that she will once again uncover the lost manuscript. To defend herself, Diana must learn to accept and wield her inhuman gift and she quickly discovers that not all creatures are considered equal.

A genre that I’ve recently grown to love and look for is the “successful and funny women writing about their successful and funny lives” genre. I enjoyed reading the tales of Tina Fey and Mindy Kaling but nothing filled my heart quite like the witty and relatable stories of Lauren Graham in Talking as Fast as I Can, which I’ve admittedly read more than once. From her beginnings as a D.C. local, to her college years on stage and her performances as the endearing Lorelei Gilmore and the rebellious Sarah Braverman, Graham opens the door to her life in a way that will make fans love her more than they already do. But back off she’s mine, okay?

Written by then 13-year-old Naoki, The Reason I Jump is a wonderful collection that answers the never-ending slew of questions regarding autism. Naoki has autism; he has a hard time communicating and every day social situations make him nervous and frustrated. But his language isn’t stunted. He’s intelligent, charming, and driven to achieve his goals and dreams. Inspired to educate the world on the mystery of the autistic brain, Naoki wrote this book, answering questions like “why do you talk so loud?”, “why don’t you make eye contact?” and, yes, even “why do you jump?”
