    I thought of a few more books:

    Uprooted by Naomi Novik
    Spinning Silver also by Naomi Novik

    Anything by Neil Gaiman. He did a nonfiction book I really like called The View From the Cheap Seats: Selected Nonfiction
    Gaiman is a strong supported of libraries and I have a library science degree and use the library all the time. He has a lot of interesting things to say.

    He is friends with the musician Tori Amos. Which brings me to my next book:
    Comic Book Tattoo: Tales Inspired by Tori Amos This was a joint project by Gaiman, Amos, and the artists who illustrated her songs.
