It won't get as much attention as Paula Hawkins' new one, but the writing is better than hers (at least in Girl on the Train). Out June 6.
    I've got this in my stack. I loved her kids series, and I want to get to this...

    It's pretty good, just suspend your "really, that too?" disbelief earlier than you might think you need to.

    I'm reading The Contortionist's Handbook by Craig Clevenger. Like most people, I read it because of Palahniuk.
    The good is really good, but I can't see what's the relation with Palahniuk's books. Clevenger talks about drugs, but even Oliver Sacks wrote about drugs.
    Maybe later I'll find some similarities, but so far it's a great book as it is, without Palahniuk publicity.
    When he woke up, the dinosaur was still there.
