How the Other Half Banks by Mehrsa Baradaran

You would not think that a history of banking would be interesting, but you would be wrong. This is a fascinating and important book. (Also, it enraged me. Not the book. How we treat the poor.)

The Last Painting of Sara de Vos by Dominic Smith

I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a novel this much. Really, really well done.

Class by Lucinda Rosenfeld

I loved this book. It was a hilarious, brilliant send-up of white liberal guilt.

The Sleepwalker by Chris Bohjalian

The whole time I was reading this I was thinking that it was the most transparently obvious plot ever. And then I got to the last few pages and realized that what I thought was going to happen did not happen. I was totally blindsided. So, in short, this was really, really good.
