From last week's Indie bestseller lists, available at, here are the recommended titles, which are also Indie Next Great Reads:

A Dangerous Business: A Novel by Jane Smiley (Knopf, $28, 9780525520337). "An incredibly thought-provoking new novel from Jane Smiley.

Weightless: Making Space for My Resilient Body and Soul by Evette Dionne (Ecco, $26.99, 9780063076365). "Dionne's essays cover fat-shaming, plus-size characters, love and sex, the pain of weight loss due to illness, and weight-discrimination legislation. Based both on research and her own experiences, there's much here to think about." --Susan Posch, The Book Shoppe, Boone, Iowa

Wahala: A Novel by Nikki May (Mariner, $17.99, 9780063084254). "Wahala offers a fresh, suspenseful, and insightful exploration of the darker complexities of friendship, romance, and ambition from the perspectives of three Anglo-Nigerian women." --Alyssa Raymond, Copper Dog Books, Beverly, Mass.
