Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking - Malcolm Gladwell This book was particularly interesting because I'm taking a social psychology course right now, so some of the case studies and concepts Gladwell presented were concepts I was learning about at the same time.

Even though it's non-fiction with a lot of scientific concepts tied in, this book doesn't come off as dry at all and is a fairly easy read. Gladwell gives a lot of examples and draws connections throughout the entire text. If you're at all interested in how and why we view the world as we do, this is a fantastic book.
