What next?

Millennium III is done and dusted.

No more evenings with Lisbeth.

What next?

Any suggestions?

I heard that "The Host" by Stephenie Meyer is exceptionally good and, well, for adults. It's on my "next" list anyhow.

Henning Mankell - Wallander series maybe? Or something by Camilla Lackberg? Only if you want to keep reading Scandinavian crime fiction, that is ;)

P.S. Did you like the ending of the trilogy? Which book did you like the most?

I tried to read the third volume as slowly as possible but i couldn't put any of those books down. Now I'm waiting for the movie.

I've made a note of all your suggestions and tucked it into my wallet for the next time I'm at Empik. Thanks for the ideas :)

Aneta- It's hard to say which book I liked the best. I guess the last one and I was happy that it ended the way it did (I don't want to spoil it for anyone) with friendship and not romance.

aga-b - I think I am in a Scandinavian mood after those 3 books. I think I'll go and make myself a thermos of coffee and eat some herring sandwiches ;)

Bee - I also had the best intentions of reading the 3rd book slowly but I couldn't stop myself!!!!

If you are in a Scandinavian mood go for "Fantastyczne samobójstwo zbiorowe" ("A Charming Mass Suicide") Arto Paasilinna. The book is great!

Chris said...

Hello donna! I will definitely add that to my list. It sounds intriguing. I decided to cleanse my palate with something completely different (Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin) but I feel myself being pulled back to the Scandinavian atmosphere.

Have you read anything by Marek Krajewski? His novels are really great and so well written. I couldn't stop reading. Enjoy!

Chris said...

So I've just finished another book by Emily Giffin (Something Blue) which I liked but the number of typos was distracting. I'm a teacher. I can't turn it off :)

I have been considering Marek Krajewski for awhile now. I don't know if I would be able to tackle those books in Polish. It'd be a real challege.

I am pleased to announce that I currently have in my possession The Preacher by Camilla Lackberg so you probably won't be hearing from me for awhile ;)

I just thought of something else - Martha Grimes' Richard Jury series - if you like mystery novels :)

Chris said...

kobieta pracujace - I will check them out when I return to detective and mystery stories.

I think now I need to take a break from these stories. First of all, I see conspiracies all around. Secondly, I figured out the mystery in The Preacher before page 100. Thirdly, I see typos everywhere.

Luckily MI is on TV Saturday and I have a Thanksgiving dinner to prepare :)
