Emily's Recommended Reading!

BOOKS! These are some of my favorite science-y books from the last year or so. Got any recommendations for me!? 

*Federal Trade Commission endorsement guidelines state that I need to let you know if a publisher or author gives me a book for free/without charge, just in case that might somehow influence my opinion... which is hilarious because I would have bought all of those books anyway but that's why there's a little medallion on some of them~
