A witty tongue-in-cheek frolic about what it means to be from really old money and what it’s like to be crazy rich.

Crazy Rich Asians

by Kevin Kwan

Origin
Origin is comfortably predictable, it brings back Robert Langdon and his Mickey Mouse watch for another sprawling romp, and it moves the pages pleasantly on those otherwise stressful nights...

The Rooster Bar
As in all of Grisham’s best books, the reader of “The Rooster Bar” gets good company, a vigorous runaround and — unlike those poor benighted suckers at Foggy Bottom — a bit of a legal education.

The Rooster Bar

by John Grisham

The Outsider: A Novel
They are, crucially, not Texans. In a nice play on the title, they are outsiders...King doesn’t presume to be an insider, either. There is a cop of Mexican descent, Yune Sablo, and an Anglo woman who grew up in the area, Lovie Ann Bolton, but neither is the protagonist; King doesn’t inhabit them as he does Anderson and Gibney.

The Outsider

by Stephen King

Texas Ranger

Texas Ranger

by James Patterson

Sharp Objects: A Novel
A savage debut thriller that renders the Electra complex electric, the mother/daughter bond a psychopathic stranglehold...Piercingly effective and genuinely terrifying.
Kirkus

Sharp Objects

by Gillian Flynn

China Rich Girlfriend
Kwan keeps more than a few plot resolutions in the air but delivers at least one priceless declaration of love...Over-the-top and hard to stop. A third installment is promised.
Kirkus


China Rich Girlfriend

by Kevin Kwan

The President Is Missing
The larger problem, though, is how cramped the novel's scope remains. There's no thrum of national panic, no sense of the wide world outside this very literal narrative.
LA Times

The President Is Missing

by Bill Clinton

The Other Woman: A Novel (Gabriel Allon)

No Critic Review

The Other Woman

by Daniel Silva

Less: A Novel
...the reader is left unsure of exactly how to conclude. Except perhaps, in avoiding a trite ending all my own (“Less should have been more!”), to say that what frustrates is that a writer of great talent has allowed himself to call finished something that needed to go higher, faster, further...
