1. One More Thing- BJ Novak.
I was a huge fan of the Office when it was on the air, and watched each season religiously despite its drop in quality towards the later seasons. Some of my favorite characters were the background characters- and Ryan (played byBJ Novak) was no exception. This book was written by him, and is full of mini stories that are hysterical. Definitely a good beach read, or a mini lunch break reading session. Also- this book has a trailer featuring BJ Novak, and his bestie (and my idol), Mindy Kaling!
2. The Happiness Project- Gretchen Rubin
This book is really outside of my reading taste, however it does help you think about things differently. I'm pretty sure this is labelled as a self-help book. Anyway, while some of the essays seem very intuitive, I think reading it can help you re-eavaluate your own happiness, and maybe how small things could make you happier. Definitely a light read.
3. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock- Matthew Quick
I have a couple of authors who I will read any book of theirs regardless of what it is. Matthew Quick is getting on that list. This book is amazing, and I can not put it down. I actually meant to pick up Matthew Quick's other book "The Good Luck of Right Now" but found this one instead. Regardless, this book is a page turner. It's about a school shooter, and his thought process before he goes to school and why he's going to shoot someone. I don't want to give too much away, but read it. It's good. Very very good.
4. If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things- John McGregor
If you love poetic writing, or novels that just flow beautifully, this is your book. It is so wonderful and mesmerizing. I can't even begin to describe it.
