Hello there, its sure been a while and while I haven't been posting, I sure have still been reading.  This meme is by Sheila at her Book Journey  Go and check her blog out!


I'm heavy into The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and absolutely loving it!!  So far, highly recommended and I can't wait to find out what happens!


Last week I finished Fever Dream, which is the latest in the Special Agent Pendergast series by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child.  I found the story to be a bit different than the others but just as enjoyable.

I also recently read the first Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child, Killing Floor (Jack Reacher, No. 1).  Another Jack in my life and I ate it up!  I've got the next one, Die Trying (Jack Reacher, No. 2) on tap but am not sure if that's going to be my next book or not!

I won, in a blog giveaway, Ciao Bella: A Novel, which is a love story set after the second world war.  A few plot twists and its not as predictable as you first might think!

So, what have you been reading?
