So, you may recall that my goal for May was to read 20 books. I knew going in that there was no way that I was going to achieve it, but I made the goal anyway with the intention of at least doing my very best to get as close as possible. And, considering how much stuff I had going on this month, I am VERY proud of myself for reaching the halfway point with reading 10 books! And, looking over my May reading list post, it turns out that 10 was actually my bare minimum goal. So, while I may not have reached my impossible goal of 20, I did at least reach the more realistic one. Yay me!
Out of these books, I think that my favorite was probably Sense and Sensibility, with Hereafter coming close behind. My least favorite was most definitely Ashfall, since I didn't even finish that one. Overall, this was a pretty great book month - I read 10 books, only 2 of which earned less than 4 stars from me!
What was your favorite book this month? Have you ever read any of the books that I read in May?
Lisbeth Salander is wanted for a triple murder. All three victims are connected to a trafficking exposé about to be published in Mikael Blomqvist’s magazine Millenium, and Lisbeth’s fingerprints are on the weapon.
Lisbeth vanishes to avoid capture by the justice. Mikael, not believing the police, is despairingly trying to clear her name, using all his resources and the staff of his magazine. During this process, Mikael discovers Lisbeth’s past, a terrible story of abuse and traumatizing experiences growing up in the Swedish care system.
When he eventually finds her, it’s only to discover that she is far more entangled in his initial investigation of the sex industry than he could ever imagine. (source)
My friend KT just gave me all of her copies for this series. I am so grateful for an amazing friend like her. I am going to do something special for her. I am thinking of buying her the first two copies of the hardbacks and getting myself the last book in paperback. That way we would each have the full, matching set on our own.
Just....all.....the....feels....all of them. Right Now!
I know most female readers do love kickass women, and these are some representations of such. But they’re complex kickass women. They have flaws and weaknesses and problems that don’t have easy answers. In other words, same rules as with the men: lots of character development.
Again the books from series feature my favorite moments in their storylines. Also, you can say whatever you want to say about Mockingjay, but Katniss was amazing in that book.
