Brooklyn by Colm Toibin
Even the Dogs by Jon McGregor
Ransom by David Malouf
The Book of Night Women by Marlon James

Big Girls Don't Cry: The Election that Changed Everything for American Women by Rebecca Traister---favorite nonfiction of the year!
Under this Unbroken Sky by Shandi Mitchell
So Much for That by Lionel Shriver
Freedom by Jonathan Franzen
The Unnamed by Joshua Ferris
Sag Harbor by Colson Whitehead
Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shteyngart
The Lotus Eaters by Tatjana Soli (just out in paperback this week!)
The Heretic's Wife by Brenda Rickman Vantrease
Blue Nude by Elizabeth Rosner
I also read a terrific one that will be coming out next summer (too early for it to be touchstoning yet):
French Lessons by Ellen Sussman (which was titled The French Tutors when I read it, but I like the new title better)
The Road by Cormac McCarthy - bare-bones post-apocalyptic
Brooklyn by Colm Toibin - Irish-American immigrant experience
Sommarboken by Tove Jansson - beautiful in its simplicity
Spies by Michael Frayn - WWII, what children think is going on, what is really going on, what the reader does and doesn't realize is really going on, and looking back at the consequences.
The City of Dreaming Books by Walter Moers - fun, sprawling fantasy romp; a book that revels in books and reading.
and because I can't keep it to 5:
Apex Hides the Hurt by Colson Whitehead - satire, American culture and history distilled down to a slim, wonderfully written novel. Not as original as The Intuitionist, but Whitehead is fast becoming a favorite author.
