First of all, I would like to start this post by saying I am sitting on my patio right now, writing this. It was warm enough today, that it is still warm enough in the mountains to enjoy the great out of doors at night. Sweet relief. So far, the mosquitoes aren't eating me either.
Okay, now on to other things.
I just finished reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I know this book has gotten quite a lot of publicity, and you might be thinking the hype is just too much. Well, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good story. There are a few mysteries in the book, that she reveals the answers to, in a manner that you just can't put the book down. And while the ending is a tiny bit predictable, I just didn't care. I fell in love with the three main characters of this book. I want to hug them and squeeze them and keep them safe in my pocket forever.
Now I am off to read the second in the Stieg Larrson series, The Girl Who Played with Fire. I really enjoyed the first in the series. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It is funny, because I picked up that book before it became a big sensation in the US. I just picked it up because I thought, hey, that is me. (As I am a girl, and I have a dragon tattoo.) I didn't read it for a long time, as it went into the reading list. When I finally did get to it, I loved it. Although, I am glad I am not the SAME girl with the tattoo. Some of the scenes there are so intense. It is all consuming. I am looking forward to next installment. Although, I am a little sad that Mr Larrson passed away before he could write more. And that he was not able to see what a sensation his books have become. Hopefully, somehow, he always knew the gem that he created.
Just a few other quick blurbs...
