I am currently reading "Skeleton Crew" by Stephen King.
The Tide Knot by Helen Dunmore.
It's a young adult book, so it's a bit childish in the writing, but it's got a good image of Merfolk and how they might see humans and interact with them. It's the second in the series, a good read if you like Mermaids.

I stopped at chapter 32 for the Honor Harrington book. Will read the last few chapters and start the next book when it comes out. Apparently he wrote book 13 as one book, but the publisher told him to split it into two. I've read his forums that chapter 32 is a good place to stop and wait on book 14, Shadow Of Freedom.
