Fantastic Book(s)!

I am a book lover!  I love to read.  I read on average one book per week.  I usually don't write a lot of posts about the books I'm reading as I don't think of myself as critic.  I don't have anything really clever or insightful to say about significance or symbolism in the books.  I either liked, loved it or hated it.  Even if I'm not really enjoying a book I will keep reading it until the end.  I have to give every author a chance. 

You might be asking "ks, so why are you gabbing on about it now?" 

Because I am about to finish a trilogy that I am just so sad to say goodbye to.  I just have to let everyone else know that if they are looking for a fantastic new book to start, then please, please, pick these up!  I promise you won't be able to put them down.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
The Girl Who Played with Fire
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest

Written by Stieg Larsson

They are action packed, drama filled, page turning awesome!  You fall in love with the most unusual character. You will think the story is going one way and then it makes a drastic u-turn.  You have no idea who the good people and all the bad people are until the end.  After book 1 you are left craving for book 2 in hopes that some of the same characters will still be present.  I am going to be sad tonight to say good bye to these wonderful characters that have truly entertained me for the last 2 weeks.  It's sad that the author has since passed on and wasn't here to know how many people loved his books.  Apparently they are in the process of making another movie about the series in English (there already is one in Swedish).  When it comes out, I will stand in line to see it on opening night.

So in conclusion fellow bloggers, if you are looking for a fantastic read that gives you a break from your ever pressing IF battle.  Pick these 3 books up and prepare to be fully entertained!

I am about to start the third book tonight! I love them, too! By the way, the Swedish version of the movies are in English and the first one was great! Now that I'm finished the second book, I'm looking forward to seeing the second movie! Nothing like some good books and movies to distract us from all of this IF craziness, huh?

I've just finished the first and second. I have to wait on the third because it's not available in paperback here and I refuse to buy hard cover books. :) It's killing me to wait.

I've also read the first and second. I'm trying to space out the third so it is not read so quickly ( especially since there aren't any more). Love them!
