I found a book challenge at Becky’s blog from last year, but I thought I would resurrect it for this month, and half-wondered whether I could actually write about books for 30 days. Let’s see if I can do it. Feel free to join in – see more below….
Well, that is easy: I wish the Stieg Larsson trilogy had gone on longer, but sadly, Stieg passed away under mysterious circumstances. There is another unpublished version of the fourth novel, but as it is incomplete, his father said it would not be published. I wonder how many people would give their right arm to see what Lisbeth Salander got up to….
To answer part B: I really wish years ago, that Harry Potter grew up, put up and shut up. I am so tired of hearing kids talk about wizards and spells and this kind of crap. I am not saying the series is not good by any stretch of the imagination, just that it has been done to death, so really can we let Harry be and not have any more talk of it. There are plenty of other good books out there…give them a chance.
Having said that so forthrightly, you will notice a preponderance of Scandinavian novels in my list. For that is my leaning, as you will no doubt discover later in the month.
