In My Mailbox (August 8)

In my mailbox was created by Kristi of The Story Siren, who was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. Here are the books I got this week...

Bought:

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

Mikael Blomkvist, a once-respected financial journalist, watches his professional life rapidly crumble around him. Prospects appear bleak until an unexpected (and unsettling) offer to resurrect his name is extended by an old-school titan of Swedish industry. The catch--and there's always a catch--is that Blomkvist must first spend a year researching a mysterious disappearance that has remained unsolved for nearly four decades. With few other options, he accepts and enlists the help of investigator Lisbeth Salander, a misunderstood genius with a cache of authority issues. Little is as it seems in Larsson's novel, but there is at least one constant: you really don't want to mess with the girl with the dragon tattoo. (From Goodreads)

I tried reading this book during the winter and couldn't get into it. I picked it up again this summer and couldn't put it down! Now I'm reading the second one. Great books!

I am so glad you're reading this. I've been wondering about it and have yet to really read any reviews.

I really loved The Dragon Tattoo book. I need to read the others though. The first book is sick and twisted but once you get into it, you can't put it down.
