I'm Trying to Love Spiders is both informative and hilarious as the narrator tries (and mostly fails) to love spiders. You'll end up with at least a healthy respect for them (and the illustrations are informative without being too creepy)!

Bob Woodward doesn't provide much new info on Trump himself, but insight on cabinet members is intriguing. Plus, the audiobook ends with recorded excerpts of interviews with Trump that Woodward conducted for the book, which has a surreal quality.

A coming-of-age YA graphic novel about reconnecting with one's heritage and struggling to find your place in the world. Language, and the struggles of learning and relearning, are expressed beautifully and made extremely relatable on every page.
