While The Martian is my favorite book so far of the year, Of Things Gone Astray has my favorite cover. Look at this beauty:
Lucky for the cover (and me), the book is just as gorgeous. The book features people who have lost things. But not typical things, like keys or glasses. There is a lost living room wall, lost piano keys, a lost love, and a lost sense of direction. There is also a boy who has lost his mother and who is losing his father (in different ways). And a young woman who is turning into a tree. The book is both whimsical and touching. You should read it (after you read The Martian, though).
