Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
Amy disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary, and while Nick has not been a model husband, could he -really have killed her? Its soon evident that if Amy is dead, that’s the least of the readers worries. Flynn’s last novel, Dark Objects, was a New York Times best seller, but this one is expected to break her out.

A Dance with Dragons – George R.R. Martin
New threats emerge to endanger the future of the Seven Kingdoms, as Daenerys Targaryen, ruling in the East, fights off a multitude of enemies, while Jon Snow, Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, faces his foes both in the Watch and beyond the great Wall of ice and stone.

Unbroken : a World War II story of survival, resilience, and redemption – Laura Hillenbrand
On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared–Lt. Louis Zamperini. Captured by the Japanese and driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor.
