6. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
The Girl on the Train
I had no idea what to expect when I started this one. If you haven’t heard anything about it, go read it now before someone can spoil it for you!

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. (more)

The Most Dangerous Thing

I’m already getting impatient for the next Sigma Force book!

 A remote military research station broadcasts a frantic distress call that ends with a chilling message: Kill us all.

The land is completely sterile—and the blight is spreading. (more)

2. The Dead Lands by Benjamin Percy
The Dead Lands

In Benjamin Percy’s new thriller, a post-apocalyptic reimagining of the Lewis and Clark saga, a super flu and nuclear fallout have made a husk of the world we know.

  1. I’ve been meaning to read The Girl on the Train for such a long time! It seems so mysterious and cool, but I couldn’t tell if that meant it was going to be mysterious good or mysterious confusing. Now that I see that you’ve enjoyed it so much I’ll definitely be trying to read it soon!
