I need help deciding what book/books I should read next and I thought I'd query the hive mind! Details about recent favorites inside.

The last five books I loved were:
"On Beauty" by Zadie Smith for its provocative, insightful and witty prose.
"A Visit From The Goon Squad" by Jennifer Egan for its effortless ability to weave together so many stories into a cohesive whole.
"Trouble on Triton" by Samuel Delany for its hilarious depiction of a naturally uptight conservative lost in a far-future heterotopia.
"John Henry Days" by Colson Whitehead for its fascinating, decade-spanning approach to its themes.
"No One Belongs Here More Than You" by Miranda July for its characters' vividly realized fantasy lives.
