Stay the Course

I picked up the book, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo at Target a few weeks ago. I (like every other person) had heard good things about the book so I decided it would be worth looking into. Plus, with football season upon us I need good books to read while Ryan watches football games that I could care less about  I enjoy reading so that Ryan can enjoy watching football without interruption.  I digress.

The weekend I purchased the book I saw this post by my friend Lacey. She had nothing but good things to say about the The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo... I went into it with high hopes!

Well, I was struggling to get into it. It has a lot of characters and it moves from one storyline to the next (but they all come together, if that makes sense). So I put the book down. However, I then saw this post over on Just Another Day in Paradise regarding the book. She said that if she had a tough time getting through the first 100 pages but after she made it past that it was a great book.

I decided to forge ahead. I picked the book back up and boy am I glad I did. I found myself wide awake and reading well into the night just trying to figure it all out. I couldn't put it down.

I'm now reading the second book in the series, The Girl who Played with Fire, and it's just as good so far!!

They are sooo worth the struggle through the first 100-200 pages! I am almost done with the Hornet's Next!
