Good Books I've Read

The first one here is "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" by Stieg Larsson. This is a posthumous publication - he died before this trilogy was discovered. The three books are very good; this is the concluding book of the story, and even though it starts out rather slow, it's very good! I'm sorry the story is over, and I'm sorry he's not around to write another book!
Next is "Little Bee" by Chris Cleave. I didn't know if I would like this book at first, but I was at the beach and needed a read, so I bought it. I'm glad I did. It's a real page turner, about an African immigrant girl who settles in England. Her story is tragic and heroic all at the same time.
"A Reliable Wife" by Robert Goolrick is also a book I probably would have never picked up if I wasn't desperate for another book! I am very glad I did. This one starts a little slow too, but soon you are so enamored with the story that you can't put this book down. I think I read it in two days. It's about a man who advertises for a wife, and the consequences that develop when you don't know who you are dating, even in the early 20th century, before the internet!

I hope you enjoy these books too, should you purchase them!

I love to hear about good books. I totally loved the two Steig Larsen books. Sleepless nights for sure. I will look into the others. Thanks for the recommendations.

I am always on the search for a good book. I haven't read any of these and just about to look for a new selection to go through. Thanks, Sue!
