I'm about to go away and need a deep bench of non-work-related reading. I know this group is going to have awesome ideas, so please suggest away!
  1. For context, last three books I read:
    The Girl on the Train (good thriller, Gone Girl comparisons are overblown though), Revival (newish Stephen King, which I liked but isn't his best recent effort - that's 11/22/63 if you care), Americanah (almost done, really enjoying). I am a literary glutton. If you liked it, I want to read it.
  2. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

  3. Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Year of Pilgrimmage by Haruki Murakami

    Maybe the most beautiful physical object of a book I can remember purchasing. Just started it. I'm not a Murakami person especially - tried a couple, neutral feelings - but this one looked so appealing and so far reads very appealingly, too.

  4. Wolf in White Van by John Darnielle (The Mountain Goats)
    This book is truly a work of art. It's innovative and beautiful and so lyrical. Read it so we can talk about it.

  5. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
    Shakespeare and the end of the world. I cried on the subway.

  6. Going Clear by Lawrence Wright
    Because sometimes truth can be as good as fiction, and Scientology is crazzzzy

  7. An Unnecessary Woman by Rabih Alameddine
    I love antiheroes, especially when they're women. Cranky old lady plus an unusual setting. So good.

  8. White Teeth, by Zadie Smith
    Suggested by @LevNovak
  9. Single, Carefree, Mellow by Katherine Heiny
    Lady story collections are killing it. This book magical and funny and so true. Fave book of 2015 (so far)
