3 of my favorites were JavaScript books:

Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja by John Resig (2012) is a very hands-on look at writing a Javascript library: http://j.mp/RgOcXO

High Performance JavaScript by Nicholas C. Zakas (2010) is one of the most thorough treatments of performance and JS I have read: http://j.mp/V0R0X3

Professional JavaScript for Web Developers (2012 3rd edition) is an incredibly in-depth reference of JavaScript as it relates to the DOM. The third edition was heavily updated: http://j.mp/V3eGKC

I've been studying JS recently and recommend: JavaScript Web Applications - Alex MacCaw JavaScript: The Definitive Guide - David Flanagan

Those are both good as well!
