ProfHacker at the Chronicle of Higher Education has a great list of book suggestions for summer reading.
Here are some more great books that I've enjoyed this past year.
A Patchwork Planet by Anne Tyler
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
Room, by Emma Donoghue
The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
Zeitoun by Dave Eggers
Incredibly Loud and Extremely Close by Jonathan Safran Foer (I thought the book was better than the movie!)
