Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

Please read this book knowing as little as possible going in! Ishiguro touches on many themes, from discrimination and perception to futility and free-will, in an exquisitely quiet manner. As you follow a group of kids growing up at a withdrawn boarding school, moments start to feel off. Word choice seems suspect. A sense of dread and unease fills the halls. - Tori

The Ghost Map by Steven Johnson

Wow, I enjoyed the poop out of this book! The Ghost Map is FUN, informative and not for the faint of stomach. An examination of Cholora's horrific decent on London in the mid-1800s reveals fascinating patterns not only in the disease but also in human society, infrastructure, bacteria, the city itself, and, yes, poop (or night soil, excrement, nuisance... this book is a 19th century thesaurus for human waste). - Tori

The Soul of an Octopus by Sy Montgomery

Octopuses are so cool, right? They can lie in wait for prey, camouflaged against the grains of the ocean floor or the craggy rock amid the coral! I was already on board the octopus train when I opened this book one rainy afternoon and found my interest forever expanded. The Soul of an Octopus's wonderful achievement will be making you understand and care for octopuses on an individual level. I didn't expect this book to feel so personal, to me, the author, and the octopus. - Tori
