Book Club: Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Out most recent book club choice was mine, Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. I hosted book club and made Pioneer Woman's mac and cheese for dinner along with parmesan roasted broccoli and a salad, to lighten things up from the mac and cheese.

I gave this book four stars, and had a hard time putting it down. It was a pretty dark book, but seriously, you can't put it down.

Interesting fact: the original title was "Men Who Hate Women."


reading the book on the honeymoon (yes, pictures are coming soon!)

Yes, it was definitely dark, but so good. The movie was pretty good too. That water looks too good to be true!!

Ahhh, this book again. My old boss was just visiting and he was telling us the background on the author - such an intersting story. Yes, my daughter is at UW, 2nd year of law school.

LOVED this book. OK so I heard the the original title in Swedish was WOMEN WHO HATE MEN WHO HATE WOMEN... makes more sense i think? but they had to change it b/c they said they thought there was no way it would sell in the US. Agreed! hehe anyway, i gobbled this whole series. Currently waiting for Lit from amazon for next book club, not sure what to expect!!!

Amanda said...

This book is sitting on my coffee table right now waiting to be read by my husband and myself. With work and school, we just haven't had any time.

I haven't had pioneer woman's mac and cheese yet--but man oh man do I want to.
