I really like reading and am usually pretty good at holding myself accountable to not buying a book until I finish a book. I mostly purchase books on my Kindle. Both of those things have been out the window recently.
  1. Robert Galbraith, Career of Evil
    The 3rd book in JK Rowling's mystery series. Level of excitement is high.
  2. Lauren Groff, Fates and Furies
    I joined a book of the month club and this was my first pick. Have yet to read.
  3. Jessica Knoll, Luckiest Girl Alive
    I was high on pain killers and anti-anxiety drugs after my first 4 mole excisions and totally conned my poor mother into buying me books at the hospital. Sorry, mom. You're welcome, Northwestern Hospital book store.
  4. Jojo Moyes, After You
    Jojo is the new Jodi Picoult in my life. Her books are the kind I read in line at Starbucks and while my computer is starting up at work. Again, thanks mom.
  5. Jonathan Franzen, Purity
    Unfortunately I've been too busy reading less high brow selections (see above) to dive into this one. Another gift from mom.
  6. Bill Bryson, A Walk in the Woods
    Because I can't see a movie that started as a book without reading it first. And I was chased by a bear in Montana in August.
