The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
I remember when this book first came out quite a few years ago, and I remember my mom reading it and really loving it, so I'm excited to read this book. Plus, I love books written from unexpected POVs.
Love & Math: The Heart of Hidden Reality by Edward Frenkel
I discovered this book a few months ago, and it has been sitting in my Amazon wish list since then. Purusing my wish list, David purchased this book for me for my birthday, and I have so far read the first chapter and like it already. The author really has a way of looking at mathematical concepts and explaining them in a non-confounding way, and I also loved the introduction to the book because it discusses how math really manifests itself in everything--not a single thing on this earth works or was made without the use of math.
