All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr. I adored this book. Beautifully written, and I definitely felt like I really got to know and understand and feel for the main characters. Unique and not predictable at all, I found myself reading slowly on purpose so I could savor every word.
One More Thing, by B.J. Novak. A great book to have on your nightstand, because the stories are mostly very short. Easy to read a few before bed. The stories are original and funny. Not especially deep, or detailed. But it's a fun read.
Willie Mays: The Life, The Legend, by James S. Hirsch. As usual, I have to pick up at least one baseball book every summer. My brother passed this biography down to me, and I had fun learning more about Willie Mays.
One Plus One, by Jojo Moyes. It took me all of three days to devour this one. I don't think it's quite on par with her other books that I've loved - I felt like I could see the movie, starring Rachel McAdams sporting a British accent and some handsome British actor - and it was fairly predictable. But I loved it anyway.
