The Best New Books on Scribd: January Edition

We’re constantly adding new content for you to read on Scribd. In case you missed it, here are some of the best audiobooks and ebooks that were added to the service this past month:


Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff

Just in case you somehow missed this, you can listen to the book that everyone — and we mean everyone — is talking about. This inflammatory behind-the-scenes take on the Trump White House caused an uproar even before it was published.

The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin

This much-anticipated family saga about fate kicked off the new year with a bang, making just about everybody’s “must-read books of 2018” list. So, what are you waiting for? Start listening now.

When by Daniel H. Pink

Pink’s previous works include Drive and To Sell is Human, and now he delivers a book about perfect timing for the new year. You know that timing is everything, but do you know exactly at what time to achieve the best results in your career and love life? You will now.

Still Me by Jojo Moyes

Rejoice, Jojo Moyes fans — Louisa Clark is back for another adventure, this time in New York. Unlike with many series, Moyes’s “Me Before You” stories have only gotten stronger with each installment. 

The Monk of Mokha by Dave Eggers

You need to read Dave Eggers’ latest, a biography of a Yemeni-American man navigating two cultures through coffee and civil war, especially if the last Eggers story you “read” was the widely panned movie version of The Circle. This is Eggers at his finest.

Iron Gold by Pierce Brown

Oh, you thought the “Red Rising” series was a dystopian trilogy of triumphant revolution? Well, surprise! Pierce Brown has written a fourth book in his hit sci-fi saga, set 10 years in the future, where the fight for freedom has hardly been won.


Your Best Year Ever by Michael Hyatt

The description of the timely Your Best Year Ever promises to teach you “how to quit-proof [your] goals,” and since that promise comes from Michael Hyatt, author of Living Forward, we know it’s a safe bet. No matter your New Year’s resolution, this is the book you need to read to achieve your goals.

One Station Away by Olaf Olafsson

Dramatic and suspenseful, this moving story traces a peculiar New York neurologist as he seeks to find meaning in his relationships with three women — a slighted pianist, a dancer who meets a tragic end, and a mysterious comatose patient. A stirring tale of obsession, familial bonds, and misunderstanding.

A Uterus is a Feature, Not a Bug by Sarah Lacy

Tech is both one of the most male-dominated fields fueling sexist stereotypes, and leading the way to breaking down gender barriers. You may be shocked by the statistics on working mothers in this book — and you’ll certainly be inspired to change the stigmas.

The Leavers by Lisa Ko

OK, this one was added to Scribd a bit ago, but since we didn’t do a roundup during the winter holidays and this is one of the most popular books in our catalogue right now, we wanted to give it additional spotlight! Also, we interviewed author Lisa Ko about The Leavers on our latest ScribdChat podcast episode.
