The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
The The Girl With the Tattoo, Stieg Larsson. This is the first book in the Millennium Trilogy. I’ve heard a lot of great things about the books and the Swedish movies based on the books. Now, they’re coming out with an American version of the first movie. This book was nothing like I was expecting. For some reason I was expecting fantasy, but it’s actually a mystery/thriller. The fact that it wasn’t what I was expecting might be why it took a while to get into it, but after a while I had trouble putting it down for long. It has 2 separate storylines that ended up coming together. I know some people had problems with that, but I thought it was cool. I definitely recommend it.

The Walking Dead Vol. 5The Walking Dead Vol. 6
The Walking Dead Vols. 5 & 6, Robert Kirkman. I’m still slowly working my way through this series. These 2 volumes were great. They were a change of pace from what I had seen recently, and I enjoyed them.

I’ve started on 3 or 4 other books. I can’t seem to focus on 1 for too long before something else comes along. Right now I’m focusing on A Dance With Dragons. My goal for this year was to read 15 books and Goodreads says that so far I’ve read 11 if you count the Walking Dead volumes. It looks like I’m going to hit that goal.
