The Dante Club by Matthew Pearl - This started out a little slow, and I wasn't sure if I would get into it or not, but it really picked up about 75 pages in and I loved the rest of it. It was a little like reading historical fanfiction. I do wish I knew more about Dante before I started reading it, but everything was explained well. I now want to read the second book, The Poe Shadow.
Another Day in the Frontal Lobe: A Brain Surgeon Exposes Life on the Inside by Katrina Firlik - Autobiographical account of the author's years as a neurosurgical resident. Interesting, but not too in depth. I read a chapter of this a night before going to sleep.
The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance: A Memoir by Elna Baker - This was a much better memoir than I thought it would be. It made me laugh.
Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman - Very cute story. I read this as a kindle edition, and the illustrations did not show up well. But the story was good.
