These are Amazon’s picks for best books this May
By Ellen Hoffman

The Insider Picks team writes about stuff we think you'll like. Business Insider has affiliate partnerships, so we get a share of the revenue from your purchase.

9k=Most of us could stand to devote more time to reading. We make room in our busy schedules for the latest seasons of our favorite TV shows, but we don't put enough time aside for books.

If you're looking for something to keep you occupied before bed or on your commute to work this April, we suggest checking out Amazon's Best Books of the Month, a section of the site wholly dedicated to new releases in literature and fiction, nonfiction, history, and more.

You'll find a spotlight pick (this month's is Patricia Lockwood's "Priestdaddy") along with nine other books that Amazon's book editors loved this month.

One of these recommendations might just inspire your next hardcover or Kindle purchase.

"Priestdaddy" by Patricia Lockwood

Amazon

Some readers might find the title a bit creepy, but this very funny and irreverent memoir about growing up in a household with a father who is a married Catholic priest is decidedly not. Don’t get me wrong, it takes some dark turns, but poet-turned-prose writer Patricia Lockwood’s exquisite storytelling makes even those passages more than palatable. This is one of the must-read memoirs of the year.

"Ginny Moon" by Benjamin Ludwig

Amazon

Forgive me, I’m compelled to be a little corny here, but you will be over the moon for "Ginny Moon," a poignant and heartfelt novel about an autistic girl trying to carve a place for herself in this complicated world. Numerous studies suggest that reading, particularly literary fiction, improves empathy. This is one of the books that will do just that.

"Apollo 8: The Thrilling Story of the First Mission to the Moon" by Jeffrey Kluger

Amazon

Thanks to Ron Howard, we’re pretty familiar with Apollo 11 and 13, but what about the very first mission to the moon? Almost 50 years later, Jeffrey Kluger tells the captivating tale of one of America’s most awe-inspiring achievements.
