Wow! Looks like you have read some good ones. I read The Round House and loved it. I also read the Great Gatsby again and enjoyed that and the movie was beautiful. Gone Girl was a good mystery. There are some on your list I will have to check out. I am reading The Interestings right now. It's a good one so far, very different. I will show my list of books when you get here. I bought The Silver Star by Jeannette Walls to read on the way to California. GiGi
