Unbroken by Lauren Hillenbrand is definitely a favorite of mine. Another one that I thoroughly enjoyed is Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. Both are excellent books and are full of history. I never was a lover of history when I was younger, but am loving it now.

So far my favorite book of the year is a toss up between Reamde by Neal Stephenson and Existence by David Brin. Biggest disappointment clearly has to be Flashback by Dan Simmons. Best debut novel is God's War by Kameron Hurley.

My favorite book so far this year is the fantasy trilogy, The Marenon Chronicles. In The Deliverer, the amazing other world setting becomes so real, it seems you have lived there before. All the characters become either friends or vile enemies. The Gatekeeper, is next and picks up right where The Deliverer, left off. The suspense is great in all the books, but the last one, The Reckoning, was wonderful. I hated to see this trilogy end. Check out Jason D. morrow's fantasy trilogy for yourself, especially if you are anywhere from young adult to 110. You won't be sorry.

Defending Jacob, by W. Landay, a book with a twist. All Jo Nesbo's books from any year.

My very favorite books are by Karen Harper who writes about the Amish. I love her books...reasons...they are clean, I never have to apologize for what I'm reading, they don't offend or curse my Lord. She is an amazing author.

hands down it was the trilogy of 50 shades of grey, a mature read......the sexual portions are interesting ,however the back story was simply entertaining...and it all takes place w.ithin 5 months

Gold Coast by Nelson DeMille is a wonderful, can't put down book. It is Long Island aristocracy meets the mafia. It is not a new book but it is an excellent 5 star book worth every minute.

I read a lot of good books. The best I've read in 2012 is "The Secrets of Mary Bowser" by Lois Leveen. Historical fiction based on fascinating truth. It takes "The Help" up several notches.

Yes Fifty Shades of Grey is a page turner and I do agree with Ross when it was stated that you really get involved with the main characters......I am on the second in that series of 3, Fifty Shades Darker and it is just as good!! The 3rd book is titled, Fifty Shades Freed...

Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed are great!! These were books that I couldn't put down and kept wanting more. Once you finished a book, you had to have the next. After Fifty Shades Freed, I still want more. The story totally brings you in and you feel like you know the characters. It's a great story beyond the sex. First books in a long time that have kept my attention and left me wanting to read more.

"The Lead Dog" retains your interests throughout. Fictional leaders sorely needed in today's societal failures.

Perfect Peace by Daniel Black! I couldn't put it down. It doesn't look like much from the beginning but oh when the plot is established.It's a page-turner.

Killing Lincoln by Bill O'Reilly. Great page turner. I was never a history buff, but if I could have read history written in this way, I would have longed to know more. Should be required reading for all high school students. You also find out there is nothing new in politics. It has always been nasty business.

I agree, Lee Childs is a great writer and look forward to more

after reading the grey series I thought I'm never going to find something to engross me...but Gabriels inferno and the follow up Gabriels Rapture were very very good...better writing...beautiful storyline...I couldn't put them down either. You might like those.
