Queen of Tearling by Erika Johansen

I am presently in the middle of reading a trilogy that I am enjoying immensely.
Kelsea has come of age and out of hiding to be crowned the true Queen of Tearling. She holds powers and visions that she has yet to learn to control. Her country is in danger of being invaded by the evil Mort "Red Queen" who rules the next country just over the hills. This story takes place in a land that was inhabited by Americans and English fleeing their homelands in ships to escape tyrannical rule by men and technology. Will Kelsea's ability to see the distant past guide her decisions for ruling her country?
You may like this if you liked Martin's "Game of Thrones" or Deborah Harkness's "Discovery of Witches".

Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

My turn finally came up to read this book. I just had to see what all the hype was about. The main character Lo is an unreliable witness to a murder on board a small cruise. No one, I mean no one, believes that she saw what she says given her history of being on antidepressants and drinking. Who was the woman she saw in the next cabin that she thought got thrown overboard?
I did think this book was a pretty good mystery. The suspense was there and it was a very fast read.
