The Twilight series! I may be 34 years old, but they were still great books in my opinion. :-)

I just stayed up last night to read A Duty to the Dead, by Charles Todd, the mother-son mystery writing team. It was excellent. WWI nurse feels compelled to bring a final message in person from a dying patient to his family, who respond very oddly...and the story is on. Old English village, with vicar, doctor, policeman, but Dame Agatha it ain't. More like a Greek tragedy.

From DailyLit the best book read was Paranoia by Joseph Finder.
On paper, it definitely was A Song of Ice and Fire from George R.R. Martin (I know, I know... it's been out for a while now). A close second was Pandora's Star Saga by Peter F. Hamilton.
