1- the devil in the white city- erik lawson. 

2- the wisdom of insecurity- alan watts- more unraveling of mysteries i didn't even think were mysteries.  i rarely feel depressed after or while reading alan, but now, i don't even know if i have the heart to complete my memoirs.  i'll probably still do it, but this time, with a fresh perspective!

1. "Near Enemy: A Spademan Novel" - Adam Sternbergh
2. "Commonwealth" - Ann Patchett - I could not have loved his more. LOVED TO THE MAX! My first time reading one of her novels and it will not be my last.
3. "Today Will Be Different" - Maria Semple - I totally thought this book was going to solely be about some woman's "first- world problems". But, it started taking all of these twists and turns and was much more than I thought it would be.
4. "A Gentleman in Moscow" - Amor Towles - Some moments were soooooooo slow, while I previously noted that I could live forever in the chapter from Book 2 titled, “1926: Adieu”.

5. "State of Wonder" - Ann Patchett - This author can create the most amazing stories. So rich and emotional.
