Titles on Entertainment Weekly‘s “Must List” for the week:

#3 — Sick in the Head : Conversations About Life and Comedy, Judd Apatow, (Random House); has been getting media coverage, of course. The author has appeared on several shows, including NPR’s Fresh Air and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. The book has even been covered by The New Yorker.

#9 — Day Four, Sara Lotz (Hachette/Little, Brown; Hachette Audio: eBook) —  also gets a B+ review in the previous issue’s review section saying this “eerie tale contains freaky spooks … You’ll turn the pages curiously, hungry for clues, until the ending, told through newspaper clippings and CIA files, kicks you in the stomach.” The Guardian agrees crediting “Lotz’s expertise at orchestrating the mounting tension as the story builds to a wonderfully ambiguous, though satisfying and unusual, denouement.”
