"The Terror" by Dan Simmons.
Set in 1848, an exploration team of British sailors is trapped in the frozen North for two years, with an unknown beast slowly but surely eating them.

What I liked about it was the background info about the technology, social life and hardships of the location. Really interesting. The "terror" part... eh.

I just started the Women's Murder Club series. Since they cancelled the television show I have been interested in the books.

Hold Tight

I'm almost finished with this book. It is really good, but I can see it scaring the daylights out of parents with teenagers .

#1 Bestseller Harlan Coben’s provocative novel Hold Tight promises to be the most talked about thriller in decades

From the Book Jacket:
How well do you really know your child?
Tia and Mike Baye never imagined they’d spy on their kids. But their sixteen-year-old son Adam has been unusually distant lately, and after the suicide of his best friend Spencer Hill, they can’t help but worry. Within days of installing a sophisticated spy program on Adam’s computer they are jolted by a cryptic message from an unknown correspondent that shakes them to their core: “Just stay quiet and all safe.”

Winston Churchill's memoirs of WW2. On book 2 of 6 books. France has just fallen and the Blitz is about to begin.

Before that, raced through the "Twilight" series.

I just finished Mango Opera by Tom Corcoran last night and am now starting Gumbo Limbo by Tom Corcoran. I finished The Tale of the Thunderbolt by E. E. Knight on Tuesday.
