I just finished Mieville's _The City and the City_ and really enjoyed it. Hope you do too!


Loved Olive K. Also try Rain of Gold by Victor Villasenor. Excellent!


I tried reading Super Sad True Love Story after hearing the author read parts of it aloud on NPR - but couldn't even muster my way through the first frickin' chapter! And I am the kind of person who has to be really turned off/bored to not follow through on a book. Thanks for the other ideas - I need to load up the nook before the baby comes!


The Passage is a great read- you'll get more of the symbolism and literature references throughout than I did. It's long and it's the first book in a series- so if you are expecting it to end- beware. I finished it and thought - you have got to be kidding me- I have to wait for more?
I had the chance to talk to the author for a while and he's a great guy. His daughter told him to write her a book about a girl who saves the world. And so he did.

I'm not a big non-fiction reader but Unbroken is a fabulous read as well. If you think your life is tough- this book will humble you.
