September book report

My book reading has been full of fits and starts this year.  I am anxious to get into more of a regular reading routine again.  Still, irregular reading is better than no reading and I must say that I've ran across some gems in the past few months.

Recent favorites:

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan: I read this in less than two days.  It was funny and very entertaining. 

This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage by Ann Patchett: This is a book of essays on writing and life.  I love everything by Ann Patchett, but I think this is my favorite.  By the end of it, I knew Ann was a kindred spirit and felt like she was a close friend.

Half Broke Horses by Jeanette Wall: I finished Half Broke Horses feeling like I could take on the world.  This is one inspiring story.

Girl in Hyacinth Blue by Susan Vreeland: I'm always a fan of historical fictions.  When they center around art, all the better. 

At the top of my "to read" list is Unbroken.  I've only heard good things.  Any other suggestions for me?
