Cum Laude (von Ziegasar)

I'm not really sure why I kept reading this book. Sometimes it's a compulsion. I have a hard time ditching a book. But I won't pick up any more of her adult fiction.

The Sound of Us (Sarah Willis)

Wow. A great book about foster care and the experience of loving other people's children. Oddly enough, the mother in this book shares Jerzee's moms name and I can see some similarity in their cases. Willis does a great job of describing how quickly you can fall for a kid, and what that can do to your perceptions of biological parents, for better and worse. Loved it and read it very quickly.

The Girl Who Played with Fire (Stieg Larsson)

A phenomenol read. I'm not quite sure how I feel about the very end, but don't want to read more in case anyone stumbles across this and doesn't want to read any spoilers. Lisbeth and Mikael do not disappoint in the second book of the Larssen trilogy. It's really a shame this guy isn't around to both relish in the popularity of his books and keep producing more novels for his aduience. Despire the fac that I think some wrodsmithing is lost in transaltion and I find it the Scandanavian cities and people straight, I really enjoy these books.
