Do you like "sci-fi" type books? Like, were-animals, etc? If so, Rachel Vincent has a really good adult series. It's the "Shifter" series. I can't remember what book is first, but the titles are Alpha, Shift, Prey, etc (single word titles).
I also just recently read The Gazebo by Emily Grayson. It it's slightly historical fiction, but it follows along the lines of The Notebook (someone in the present reading a story in the past).
I also second Still Alice. LOVED that. Also, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. That is about an autistic boy/teen trying to solve the death of a dog in the neighborhood and what he uncovers about his own family.
I am going to have to find the book club thread when it is posted!
