The Brain Warrior's Way by Daniel G. Amen, MD
Your brain runs your life. When it works right, your body works right, and your decisions tend to be thoughtful and goal directed. Bad choices, however, can lead to a myriad of problems in your body. Studies have shown that your habits turn on or off certain genes that make illness and early death more or less likely. But you can master your brain and body for the rest of your life with a scientifically-designed program: the Brain Warrior's Way.
Conclave by Robert Harris
The pope is dead. Behind the locked doors of the Sistine Chapel, one hundred and eighteen cardinals from all over the globe will cast their votes in the world's most secretive election. They are holy men. But they have ambition. And they have rivals. Over the next seventy-two hours one of them will become the most powerful spiritual figure on Earth.
Cross the Line by James Patterson
Shots ring out in the early morning hours in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. When the smoke clears, a prominent police official lies dead, leaving the city's police force scrambling for answers. Under pressure from the mayor, Alex Cross steps into the leadership vacuum to crack the case. But before Cross can make any headway, a brutal crime wave sweeps across the region. The deadly scenes share only one common thread; the victims are all criminals. And the only thing more dangerous than a murderer without a conscience is a killer who thinks he has justice on his side. As Cross pursues an adversary who has appointed himself judge, jury, and executioner, he must take the law back into his own hands before the city he's sworn to protect descends into utter chaos.
I'll Take You There by Wally Lamb
Centers on Felix, a film scholar who runs a Monday night movie club in what was once a vaudeville theater. One evening, while setting up a film in the projectionist booth, he's confronted by the ghost of Lois Weber, a trailblazing motion picture director from Hollywood's silent film era. Lois invites Felix to revisit-and in some cases relive-scenes from his past as they are projected onto the cinema's big screen.
Moonglow by Michael Chabon
On his deathbed, a man unfolds to his grandson a tale that touches on their peculiar family history as it winds its way from one end of the twentieth century to the other. This semi-autobiographical novel draws on Chabon's week-long interaction with his own terminally ill grandfather for a bold and hallucinatory trip through the past and present.
The Operator by Kim Harrison
Peri Reed's job eats her mind, but for a special task agent in hiding, forgetting the past can be a blessing. Betrayed by the man she thought she loved and the agency who turned her into the very thing she fought against, Peri abandoned the wealth and privilege of Opti for anonymity riddled with memory gaps and self-doubt. But when a highly addictive drug promises to end her dependency on those who'd use her as a tool for their own success, she must choose to remain broken and vulnerable, or return to the above-the-law power and prestige she once left: strong but without will, for whoever holds her next fix, will hold her loyalty. Yet even now as then, a love based on lies of omission might still save her life.
The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher
From Princess Leia herself: another brilliantly hilarious self-examination of her unlikely life and times. A thoroughly original and intimate memoir by the bestselling author of Postcards from the Edge and Wishful Drinking.
The Spy by Paul Coelho
In a series of letters written from prison on the eve of her death, Mata Hari reflects on her childhood, her years as the wife of an alcoholic diplomat, her rise to celebrity, and the choices that led to her execution for espionage.
Thank You for Being Late by Thomas L. Friedman
