Ok, so I'm what some would call a nerd. I read between 4-6 books a month, and rarely do you find me without my nose in one during down time. I'm really into dystopia's and post apocolytpic reads, and prefer series over single books. I get so engrossed in a story that it is hard to feel satisfied after one book. That being said, here are my last few reads...
Enclave by Ann Aguirre: 7.8 out of 10. It's a short read, as I finished it in a day, but it was entertaining. Again, a dystopian society book, I'm addicted. It's a YA read, so it's simple and not overly hard to figure out, but there are some good plot twists, and it's a page turner. (2nd book coming soon!)
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest by Steig Larsson: 8.3 out of 10. My second favorite book of the series after Girl w/ Dragon Tattoo, the last 150 pages of this book are impossible to not read like there is nothing left in life. A sad thing that the series ended before it was due to(supposedly 10 books), but hopefully the families involved get out of court and let Larsson's long time friend finish the 4th book.
Under the Dome by Stephen King: 7 out of 10. Not my favorite thing he has ever written, but man he is the king(haha) of character building. A pretty big read, so don't pick it up if you don't want to spend a couple weeks on something.
I thought reading a lot was now "intellectual" not nerdy....maybe its cause I'm over 30? I was never a big reader but over the last 8 years or so I'm constantly reading something.
I just started The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I was stalling on it for a while, but now my wife read it and is pushing me to get through it so she can talk about it....usually how it works, which is why I have a dozen books I'll never get to.
Glad to see someone else into Larsson as I've been meaning to check these out for a while.
Cool. Definitely have to put some time into this one. He's pretty in depth. Reminds me of this guy Robert Wilson who writes some pretty great crime novel stuff. Small Death in Lisbon might be one of the best books I've ever read.
