Just 5 days left

So right now if you have entered the contest I am running you have a great chance at winning. 1 in 4. I am not sure where all my readers have gone but they are missing out!

In the spirit of my contest I want to recommend a few books myself. I just finished the third book in a series. The first of the three is called The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I really enjoyed Stieg's writing style. It has a bit more depth then a lot of mystery books. There are very few books, that I read, that I feel I can recommend for both sexes. I think both male and females will enjoy this series. I just finished The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest. I liked the way he wrapped up the series but I am going to miss the characters. I really came to like them. And since the author died shortly after he gave up his manuscripts there will not be a 4th book.

I was waiting for my favorite author, Charles Martin, to release his latest book earlier this month. Sadly it wasn't one of my favorites of his. I liked it and at the same time felt there was just something I didn't like about it. Not sure what though. This book felt more like a Nicholas Sparks book. Which isn't bad as he also is one of my favorite authors. Before this book, I liked that they had a similar writing style but went in different directions with that.

I am about to start a Sherlock Holmes book. Been awhile since I read one of those but I am ready for a classic.
