Pharrell Williams, Grammy-award winning songwriter/producer, performer, artist and fashionisto, recently released his first book Places and Spaces I’ve Been.

Like many of the offerings from the hip hop community (from Jay-Z’s Decoded to Common’s One Day It’ll All Make Sense), Pharrell’s book is unconventional. He brings his art to life in the pages of this book and it heads this week’s Hit List.

Joining Pharrell’s book on the list are offerings from  Olympic gold medal gymnast Gabrielle Douglas, the latest Sookie Stackhouse novel, and a compelling novel about race, color and family turmoil in The Darkest Child.
