The Opposite of Everyone by Joshilyn Jackson. Take an Antlanta Divorce attorney with a free-spirited mother who raises her with a name and folklore from India although they’re from Alabama and throw in some hidden family secrets. This one immediately drew me in.
The Steel Kiss by Jeffery Deaver. A Lincoln Rhyme thriller to be released March, 2016. I’ve read all of the Lincoln Rhyme novels and this one seemed a bit confusing at the beginning as to what is going on with Amelia Sachs and Rhyme.

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. A Young neurosurgeon gets a terminal cancer diagnosis and explores meaning of life. Kalanithi studied literature and neuroscience and combines the two in his memoir, appealing to the like-minded. My To Be Read list has grown. The history and anecdotes are a mash up of Nicholas Basbanes and Oliver Sacks. A beautifully written book that is a darling of the critics. I received an advance copy from NetGalley but will have to buy a hard copy for my library.
