I finished A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki (a Spinner rec), which kind of blew me away. I think I am in awe of it more than actually liking it. There's a fair bit in the book about science and Zen Buddhism, which can be off putting but I just love the way the author wraps it all into the story. Parts of it can be extremely depressing, however. Overall, it's definitely worth it. I find myself thinking it over a fair amount. I also read Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight. It's a quick read and I got it done in one siting. I heard or read someone call it this year's "Gone Girl", but I think it's a much lesser book. It keeps you hooked well enough, but the payoff is crap and the characters are pretty unlikeable but yet remotely uninteresting. I might read "The Age of Miracles" next.
