Men at Arms (Discworld, #15) by Terry Pratchett Men at Arms:
Terry Pratchett's Men at Arms is one of the funniest, most suspenseful books in the City Watch branch of the Discworld series. In this installment, the watch diversifies, admitting all sorts of crazy, non-traditional speices: dwarves, trolls, werewolves, and women! Oh my!

The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman The Imperfectionists:
Forget newspapers, Tom Rachman's series of vignettes about a variety of people--albeit fiction ones--working at a struggling daily in Rome gets to the true heart of human interest.

Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier Girl with a Pearl Earring:
Tracy Chevalier's intimate portrait of real-life painter Vermeer and his mysterious relationship with the titular girl is as romantic and alluring as his iconic masterpiece.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time  by Mark Haddon The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time:
Mark Haddon's brilliant debut chronicles the adventures of Christopher, an autistic boy trying to solve the gruesome murder of his neighbor's poodle, Wellington. The first-person story brings us into Christopher's head where we notice--and appreciate--the differences and similarities between us.

I would recommend Going Postal! It's one of his more recent books, and I really enjoyed it.
