The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

I read this book with great anticipation given all the hype I have heard about it. I did like the book however the first 2/3rds of the book I found a bit slow and it dragged. The payoff however was in the last 1/3 or the book that made my investment of time worth it.

Shanghai Girls

I really enjoyed the book up until the ending. I did not care for the ending. It was so flat compared to the build up. Otherwise a beautiful and tender book about the bonds of family.

Major Rettigrew's Last Stand

The author does a great job of making the characters come to life with their dialogue. Her use of words place you at the scene in Edgecombe, England and make you feel as if you are a party to the conversations taking place. I loved Major Pettigrew's personality. He made me chuckle plenty of times. It is a sweet book about friendship, life and love.

This is a quick read. The characters are interesting and likable. The issues at hand are difficult and thought provoking but the book remains light and not depressing

A beautiful story of resilience and friendship. A reminder that not all of us live charmed lives. A beautiful book about the nature that surrounds us. A reminder to slow down and see it and appreciate it.
