I found this What's Your Favorite Book This Week Feature at J. Kaye's Blog and decided to share my thoughts here after leaving a comment. I've been in a bit of a reading funk lately as I had a rough road with a prolonged bout of Bronchitis that took over a month to recover from. I hadn't been able to focus on reading or blogging as much. I have some reviews to write and catch up on and I will get to those soon. This week, I finished reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson and so far it's hands down my favorite book of the week. I haven't been reading as many mysteries lately and I really enjoyed this one. It has some squeamish and graphic scenes but it is such a powerful story and it is extremely well written. I couldn't put it down while reading the last half of the book. I immediately started the next book in the series The Girl who played with Fire by Stief Larsson that I was fortunate to win from Stone Soup (A BIG thank you to Katrina!)and it arrived in the mail just last week. I found out that the 3rd and final book The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest won't be released in hardback until May 11, 2010 BUT I found even better news that there will be a paperback edition available October 21, 2009 and I've already signed up for an email alert to be notified by Amazon when it will be ready! It's strange that the paperback edition will be available before the hardback edition but I'm not complaining. It will be easier to wait until October rather than next May for the next book in the series.
So what about you? What's your favorite book this week?
