Twisty plot turns, creepy serial murders, lots of atmosphere, great dysfunctional Scandinavian detective! What more could you want in a thriller.

In Oslo, a serial killer only known as the Snowman is on the loose and his killings may go back decades. The only message he leaves with each brutal killing is a freshly made snowman, with a hideous detail of the murder. This suspenseful, terrifying, intricate mystery is Stieg Larsson on steroids. Harry Hole is my new favorite world weary Scandinavian detective. I can't put the book down!

One Day (Vintage Contemporaries) by David Nicholls
One Day (Vintage Contemporaries)

Read this book before the movie comes out! They are bound to ruin it-- it is a funny, sweet, charming, smart story of 2 friends and their near misses as romantic partners. Part Nick Hornby, part Harry Met Sally, it traces the friendship of two college classmates and the ups and downs of their lives, separately and together. A hard book to put down and hard to forget.

A Game of Thrones (Random House Movie Tie-In Books) by George R. R. Martin
A Game of Thrones (Random House Movie Tie-In Books)

This book has been kicking around the library where I work for several years and apparently has had a fantasy cult following for years as well. Needing a good escape book after recent surgery, I picked this up to read, having heard good things about the HBO adaptatin. Boy was I blown away beyond my expectations. In addition to being instantly gripping, Martin creates a comlex medieval-style world with multitudes of fascinating characters, intrigues, humor, lust, loyalty, ...and not a dull moment. I never thought any fantasy could top Lord of the Rings for me but this might-- the 800 pages flew by and now can't wait to get my hands on book 2. Glad to hear the 5th is coming out soon because I would not be able to wait the five years it took him to write it...
