    Whether you Kondo’d your bookshelves last fall or recently resolved to read more (and scroll less) in 2016, a new year is the perfect excuse for a revised reading list. Don’t know where to start? Ah, that's where we come in. We've curated a short list of the best brand-new reads, from a Wet Hot American Summer star’s secretly deep memoir to a former ballerina’s head-spinning debut. And we recommend adding one — or all five — of these January releases to your “must read” pile.

    What follows are five terrific books out this month that we think are worth your time. It's the first in a new monthly series designed to help you navigate the flood of new titles staring you down at the bookstore, on Amazon, or on iTunes. (Trust us, we know how overwhelming it can get!) So click ahead as we kick off what we hope will be an awesome, exciting new year of bookworming.
