Monday: What Are You Reading?

This is a fun weekly meme hosted by Book Journey.

Current Read:

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

I seem to be late to this bandwagon. I'm only a little way into this one, but I'm enjoying it so far. The mysterious pressed flowers in the first chapter have me intrigued.

Just Finished:

Heaven: Season 4: Wasteland
~Mur Lafferty

This one is part of a series of podiobooks (serialised audiobooks) by Mur, of the Geek Fu Action Grip podcast. Heaven is the story of Daniel and Kate, two friends who die suddenly in a car accident and go to Heaven only to find that it isn't at all like they expected. In the first of the books they leave the Christian Heaven in search of somewhere more satisfying to spend eternity, but unbeknownst to Kate, Daniel has another agenda. They travel through various different afterlifes (some of them hilarious and bizarre), suffer and ultimately (by this volume) become gods themselves. Just when I think I know where this series is going it heads off in a different direction.

Up Next:

I'm not sure. Possibly Alison's Wonderland edited by Alison Tyler. It's a collection of smutty fairytales by various authors, which looks like a good volume to curl up with before bed.

Happy reading everyone!

I just finished Girl With A Dragon Tattoo last night and followed it up with the movie. I really enjoyed the book and I think you will too.... it picks up after about page 70.

You're not late on the bandwagon -- lots of people I know have this on their tbr pile. I read it some time back and enjoyed it. But don't see the movie before reading the book!

At least you're reading Dragon Tattoo. I seem to be shying away from it. I still haven't picked it up! Hope you enjoy it and looking forward to your thoughts!

Am sure you will enjoy The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo - it and the trilogy reinvigorated my love of crime thrillers. Am not sure whether I want to do the movie thing though... might spoil my memories of the books!
