>5 PaperbackPirate: >6 JulieLill: I read Daisy Jones... last year and was bowled over by it.

There have been some superb books over the past three months, but Breath, Eyes, Memory by Edwidge Danticat probably tops the list. Such a beautiful book, exquisitely written.

Other contenders:
The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
The Feather Thief by Kirk Wallace Johnson
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
A Rip in Heaven by Jeanine Cummins
Insidious Intent by Val McDermid

I know I've gone over the limit of five, but I've never learned the fine art of leaving things off lists.

>9 ahef1963: I'm about to read The Midnight Library for book club. Nice to have an endorsement!

Also I always encourage rule breaking when it comes to making lists of good books!
