What I've Been Reading

Yesterday, while making the almost 12 hour drive home from disney, I finished reading two books that I started over this past semester.

The first one I finally finished reading was The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest. This is the third book in the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy. I cannot even begin to express how much I loved this book. I was a really big fan of the first two, even though the first one got off to a very slow start. Like the others, this book is a slow paced one. Not slow paced in the action, but a slow paced reading book. It throws so much information at you that sometimes I had to stop and google Swedish history to grasp a full understanding of the back stories they give you. 

The next book that I read was Crossed by Ally Condie. This is the second book of the trilogy that she is writing/wrote (the first book is called Matched). The book takes place in a Utopian society that focuses on three main characters. However you only see the story mainly from two, Ky & Cassia. This book took me maybe two/three hours of uninterrupted sitting in a car time to finish. It's a book that is more marketed toward teenagers. Needless to say, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Especially since it was a nice break from The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest

Do you read books just for fun? What have been some books you've recently enjoyed?


  1. Crossed looks so good. What can I say? I get caught up in all the books that are geared towards teens.

  2. I finally have to start this series. Everyone's been raving for years so it's time I jumped on the bandwagon!

    How was Disney?! My family drives down to Orlando almost every summer, but we're going for the first time since 2009 this summer. Can't wait! Unfortunately our drive is 6-hours longer than yours, but it's worth it, right?!

  3. i need to read the girl with the dragon tatoo. it's on my list

  4. I read Matched and loved it, but I haven't yet read Crossed. Glad to hear it's good (though I was sure it would be)! I'm going to have to go pick it up now. Just discovered your blog and I love it!


Thanks for saying hello! I love hearing from all of you & reply back to everyone as quickly as I can! xoxo
