PHI is a wonderful book by Giulio Tononi that explores our consciousness.
If you enjoy thinking about what it means 'to be', and why a meat brain can generate phenomenological experience, you owe it to yourself to read this book.
He writes in a very flowing and eloquent manner that makes it easy and pleasant to read through.
