Guess what?! I finished The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo today! This book is intense, and after about page 100, it turns into a “I can’t put this down” kind of read. The plot, the characters, the twists and turns…it was amazing!
There are two more books in the series – The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, and I definitely want to read them. However, there’s one small dilemma. I’ve heard from multiple sources that they are scary reads. I actually found The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to be a bit frightening at times. I probably didn’t do myself any favors by reading it right before bed, but there were a few times where I put the book down and immediately called Vishnu just to get my mind off of what I just read. One night, I tossed and turned and woke up multiple times sweating and nervous.
What do y’all think? Have you read the other two books? Am I just being a scaredy cat or did you find the books to be a bit frightening?
Something you should know about me is that I am probably one of the biggest scaredy cats out there. I jump and scream at every little thing. In spite of this, I used to be a big horror movie fan. I loved them all. Vishnu and I even watched a foreign horror film (High Tension) on our first “date.” Now, I don’t even welcome the suggestion. Not.for.me. If I documented all of my scaredy cat moments for y’all, it would turn into a full-blown essay. No joke! [This is one of those posts where I can see my friends and family vehemently nodding in agreement!]
So, let’s just say I don’t go straight into the other two books. What else can I read? Water for Elephants? The Help? Any and all suggestions are welcome!!!
Before I sign out, I have to share today’s breakfast with y’all! This has really been breakfast week on myinnershakti, hasn’t it? Well, this one tasted like a big peanut butter cup…
With so many awesome breakfast recipes floating around the blog world, don’t expect me to stop experimenting any time soon!
Well, I should probably get to bed ASAP because I have the 20 mile Walk for Hunger tomorrow, and I have to be up bright and early. I can’t wait to share highlights from the day with y’all. 🙂 Goodnight!
P.S. My guest post for Stefanie at The New Healthy will be up tomorrow, so be sure to check it out!
