1. Career of Evil, by Robert Galbraith
    The third in the private detective Cormoran Strike series, and my second favorite. (I didn't love book two.) I love how Galbraith (pseudonym of JK Rowling) keeps the reader guessing with clues that could apply to any suspect.
  2. Modern Romance, by Aziz Ansari
    Interesting and amusing. No help at all with Internet dating.
  3. Landline, by Rainbow Rowell
    Good but not great. Maybe because I couldn't really identify with the main character?
  4. Dead Wake, by Erik Larson
    Devil in the White City is still my favorite of his books, but I enjoyed this one. I love how Larson can take know history and make non-fiction interesting by telling it like a story.
  5. Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty
    A selection by my book club, outside my "usual" reading list. I thought the characters tended towards stereotypes, and the story was fairly predictable, but it was good for book club discussion. I think Reese Witherspoon is making this book into a movie (that I'll probably skip).
