Final Book Review

Soooo, September was the last book I posted on. October was a failed attempt at Emma. Sorry Jane, it just wasn't cuttin' it for me. Maybe someday...

I did read a book in November. The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo by Stieg Larsson. This one was captivating, but definitely too graphic for me. I won't be reading the sequels or watching the movies. This was a murder mystery book, and reminded me of the Agatha Christie book I read earlier this year. I forget names, but this man is attempting to solve a decades old murder and also dealing with his own issues of libel fraud. The girl with the tatoo is an odd one, who helps him solve the case. The language is bad. There is too much reference to sexual crimes on women; too disturbing for me. But it was a quick read for me because I was definitely drawn in to the plot. I think mystery is a genre I'll keep going back to.

As for December...I attempted Emma again, got bored again, and am now reading Two From Galilee by Marjorie Holmes. So far so good. It's a romance story of Mary and Joseph...and I'm a sucker for romance.

I almost bought the Girl with the Dragon Tatoo without ever reading it and I am soooooo glad that I didn't. I can't handle books that involve that sort of graphic material (reading the Thousand Splendid Suns proved that for me). I love that you have been so diligent in your book reading goal this year and love your recommendations. I hope you keep it up. Oh and Emma is one of my favorite movies but not one of my favorite books, I is a hard one to stick with.
