Currently Reading: The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
I thought I'd do a little update on what I'm currently reading, which is The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson. This is the third book in the Millenium series, following the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo & the Girl who Played with Fire. I have read the first two already, but it has been at least a year since I finished reading the second book, and although I remember the details of the first book quite easily, I had to go back and remind myself what the Girl who Played with Fire was about before starting this one. This was critical, since the plot starts off right at the point where the last one ended. This means that there is quite a bit of action right from the very beginning. This is nice, in my opinion, especially for this series, in which the books seem to start off quite slow. I had the hardest time getting into the Girl with the Dragon tattoo, because the first 150 pages or so were so dry. However, I'm glad I stuck it out and got through them, because this really has been a great series. Saying that, I am only about 160 pages into the Girl who Kicked the Hornet's nest, and I have not been bored at all. There have already been some unexpected twists and turns, and I can't wait to see where it goes.
This was all a bit cryptic, I realize, and I apologize. I really don't want to spoil anything, especially when I don't know where things are going myself!
