Summer Reads

I made it through this one!!!! It was difficult in the beginning due to all of the Swedish names and cities....but it has gotten such good reviews that I didn't give up! I am so glad, because it was a very good book....I loved it. I loved the mixture of plots; this one has a little of everything!




I wanted something light and funny next and this one fit the bill. A good beach read. Didn't take long to get through this one!


I've had this one waiting....last night I started it and it was very hard to put it down. When I read the front and back cover, I knew this one was going to be a page turner....
"He placed a notice in a Chicago paper, an advertisement for a "reliable wife." She responded, saying that she was "a simple, honest woman." She was, of course, anything but honest, and the only simple thing about her was her single-minded determination to marry this man and then kill him, slowly and carefully, leaving herself a wealthy widow. What Catherine Land did not realize was that the enigmatic and lonely Ralph Truitt had a plan of his own."





Next on my list will be the sequel to Dragon Tattoo and I can't wait to read it. I think filming has begun on the movie...gotta read the book before seeing! Don't you agree?







What's on your list? Some of my favorite reads are ones that were recommended on blogs.....So many good books.....So little time!

Have a good day all!

Those books sound good, Nanny... I'm not much of a reader ---but when and if I do take time, I have a bunch of books here waiting....

Enjoy your books.
Hugs,

My wife is about halfway through "Dragon Tattoo" and says it started very slow but is getting better, so I'll have to let her know she's not alone in her opinion. I don't know if we have the same tastes since I just found your blog tonight, but "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett is a good serious book, and "The Afghan" by Frederick Forsyth is a good espionage yarn. If you're interested, I have a summer reading list in the June archives of my "Stanton's Space" blog.

I think you just hooked me on "A Reliable Wife." Now if only I could find a spare minute to read...hmmm...maybe if I put my computer down for a while...
