The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
The Elegance of the Hedgehog

Hard to believe a book written in two voices over 40 years apart, AND with a separate font for each voice, could be so captivating, but this one was. I read Hedgehog the year it came out and again this year after watching the movie, The Hedgehog - a beautiful rendition of the book. Go see.
And the book was still just as enjoyable.

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
The Time Traveler's Wife

I know this book is almost 10 years old now - and I haven't seen the movie - but I read it again in 2011 and found it to be just as enjoyable. Such a creative idea about a guy with an unwanted supernatural affliction - it doesn't really feel scifi it's so believable (and I do enjoy good scifi). Niffenegger's voice and story kept me leafing through for inspiration with my own creative writing aspirations.
