Which two of these five novels are you most excited to read?

Despite the fact that all of the novels look intriguing, if I were to pick only two, I would pick Rebecca Makkai's I Have Some Questions for You and Rachel Koller Croft's Stone Cold Fox. Because the two stories' primary characters are women, and I enjoy reading about disturbed women, I grew more intrigued by them. I didn't say I was troubled, and I'm not particularly interested in gender inequity, but I find it fascinating to read about how a woman's mind works in every thriller novel I read.
