I've just read some good (and excellent*) books:
Look Me in the Eye (My Life with Asperger's) by John Elder Robison *
You've Been Warned by James Patterson (very different from his usual)
A Thousand Splendid Suns by (sorry can't remember) *
Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Crusie
I'm into the homestretch of "Shopaholic and Baby" by Sophie Kinsella
The Shopaholic series has, unfortunately, become a little predictable for me.
Look Me in The Eye was written by Augusten Burroughs' (Running with Scissors) older brother. He was featured in one of the chapters of RWS. It is so funny and interesting. Give it a try.
A Thousand Splendid Suns was just as, if not more, touching and wonderful as the author's first book: The Kite Runner.
