What I have been reading
The first three books I read were a series The Girl who...(The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl who played with Fire & The Girl who kicked the Hornet's Nest by Steig Larsson)
These were slow going books at first. It doesn't hook you in right away and the first book -- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo you are left wondering who the story is about all the time. But if you can get past the first few chapters all of a sudden you are hooked and can't put the books down. Steig Larsson the author dealt a lot with sexual abuse of women and just bring awareness to a situation which he was upset about. Very interesting and thought provoking books. Also makes you think A LOT of what you do with your computers. Lisabeth Salander is the central character of the books and I so wish that there were more books then just the three. At the end of the third book I just end up wondering what was she going to do with her life after this and wished that Steig Larsson was alive still so he could continue telling her story. Which is what you want from a great series!
I just finished reading three books from Francine Rivers, who is an amazing writer just drawing you into her stories and letting you just dwell in the places where she is writing. Makes you long for more time with each of the characters before you have to set the books down.
