favourite book [crime]

I admittedly don’t read a lot of this genre, I never seem to be in the mood, and I find that the majority of the time I guess who did it and it ruins the whole feel of the book for me.

I am cheating on this though, and using a trilogy. I couldn’t just choose one of the books because they’re all the same story and whatnot, so I think it should be allowed.

I have chosen for this genre the Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson. I adored these books when I read, I physically had a problem putting them down, they were addictive.

I won’t spoil the entire series, so I’ll just give you a super quick rundown of the first book. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo tells the story of a journalist who is given the task of tracking down what happened to a scion of a wealthy family, all with the help of a young tattooed girl.

I love how dark these books are and the fact that the characters are so interesting. It was really well written especially in the term that they were so unpredictable. I genuinely had no idea what was going to happen, and it kept me on my toes, I didn’t know what the answer was until it was told to me which made a huge difference and a nice change.

These books won’t be for everybody, seeing as they are exceptionally dark in places and there is definitely a sense of gore. If you don’t mind that and you haven’t already, pick up these books – you won’t regret it.

My Month of Reading [3]

This month, once again, has been a really slow month, I have had a lot going on in my life, and reading just hasn’t been a priority.

I finished three books this month, two I liked and one I really didn’t. I think that this month I have found a book that I really loved and will probably be rereading for years to come; All The Light We Cannot See. 

Although it took me a little while to get through, I absolutely adored the prose and the storyline, it was a nice refreshing read, and I was so glad that it was on this month’s reading. It is definitely one of my favourite books of this year.

So that was March’s reading, what did you read this month?

Weekend Reads [17]

I am making my way through All The Light We Cannot See, and LOVING it. I haven’t the words to explain my love for this book, well not right now anyway. It is going to be a really busy week for me this week, but I’m so hoping to finish it because I feel I really need to.

I will be posting my month of reading, and having a whole new TBR up for this next month. Exciting times? I was looking for a new series to post, so if you guys can let me know what you would want or like reading about then please let me know.

An Apology.

This weekend caught up on me and I missed posting what I was supposed to. I have been exceptionally busy looking after a toddler and I just didn’t get the time to write down my thoughts and my writing progress, which has been zilch.

I hope that this week will be better in terms of my postings, and I am endeavouring to do so much better. All I can say is that I am sorry about the lack of me, and I will be back with a vengeance!

Weekend Reads [16]

I really want to apologise for the fact I have been absent from this blog over the weekend. I have had an immensely busy week and weekend, and unfortunately the blog had to take a backseat. But this week I endeavour to be more pro-active and post with enthusiasm.

Onto the reading. I am steadily making my way through All The Light We Cannot See and I love it. Really enjoying the dual perspectives, and what they each bring to the story. The characters are well created and the world, oh my, is so well described, I know it’s our world but the attention to detail is wonderful.

It really is becoming my type of book. Love it.
