The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet by Reif Larsen

Junior cartographer T.S. Spivet maps what he sees: translating the world as he knows into diagrams and detailed drawings. His (fully annotated) journey from Montana to the Smithsonian combines, as Stephen King puts it, “Mark Twain, Thomas Pynchon, and Little Miss Sunshine.” Like nothing else I’ve read before.

An Unnecessary Woman by Rabih Alameddine

I can't remember the last time I fell so in love with a narrator. Aaliya Saleh's intelligence and humor—sly and witty and contemporary—leaps off the page. She lives an unconventional life for a woman in Beirut; she is divorced, childless, and not religious, and this has both isolated her and allowed her the freedom to pursue her life's passion: reading and translating books. I would give almost anything for an afternoon in Aaliya's apartment. I would love to ask her what I should be reading.

All the Birds Singing by Evie Wyld

Wyld’s novel starts on a cold and desolate English island, where the main character—Jake, the only young and female shepherd for miles—is trying figure out what is killing her sheep. It then moves back and forth in time, revealing Jake’s previous life in Australia and the gruesome events that drove her to such an isolated place. The writing is beautiful, the structure dazzling.
