Summer Reading List.... looking a bit thin

For the first time in forever, I'm having trouble selecting which book is going to be my next read. I blame this on my favorite authors not writing fast enough (cough Nicholas Sparks cough).

On the bright side, this tiny problem has forced me to branch out and try new authors. The list may be short, but that's why I'm counting on you to help fill it out a bit.

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
As children Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy were students at Hailsham, an exclusive boarding school secluded in the English countryside. It was a place of mercurial cliques and mysterious rules where teachers were constantly reminding their charges of how special they were.
Now, years later, Kathy is a young woman. Ruth and Tommy have reentered her life. And for the first time she is beginning to look back at their shared past and understand just what it is that makes them special–and how that gift will shape the rest of their time together.
