SuicideGirls: Hard Girls, Soft Light

Replace your overly safe coffee table repertoire of cars, architecture, and perhaps even pets with something a little more... interesting. SuicideGirls: Hard Girls, Soft Light ($26) is the second photography tome from the revered website, boasting over 200 pages of photos that continue to challenge the typical pop culture definition of beauty while serving as inspiration for your next — or first — tattoo. Oh, and if you couldn't tell from the title, most of the photos were shot using natural light, giving them a quality rarely found in collections like this.

  • Attempting Normal

    If most people tried to write these stories, they'd probably be overly depressing. Fortunately, Marc Maron isn't most people. Attempting Normal ($15) is this blisteringly funny comic's tale of loss, broken hearts, cats, drugs, work, and much, much more. Following Maron from the loss of his job and marriage through to his current incarnation as the host of the wildly popular WTF with Marc Maron podcast, it offers a little wisdom, a little insight, and a lot of laughs.

  • Serpentine

    Freak out your ophidiophobic friends by proudly placing Serpentine ($30) atop your coffee table. Not a serpentine, mind you, but the 200-page collection of dangerously beautiful photographs from Mark Laita. Including such snakes as the albino Honduran milk snake, the Malaysian coral snake, and Kobe's favorite, the black mamba, the book also contains an essay from novelist William T. Vollmann exploring the various associations with the animals that make them so menacing to so many.
