I did read the first two books in the Girl with the Dragon tattoo series and do be aware that they are highly graphic and involve very graphic rape scenes. It was more than a bit scary for me.
That said, I love to read. Tell us more about the kinds of books you like, are you a mystery person? how about fantasy? Did you like Harry Potter? The Lord of the Rings was tough slogging, it took me more than a week to get through and I was on an spring vacation.
I'm currently working on writing a dog and his girl story, its like a boy and his dog only different.
What hobbies are you into? (I know thats sort of off topic. . )
I think it's awesome you are writing a story, I think it's so fantastic when people have and can express creativity.
Good to know about the Dragon book, thank you for the heads up. Might take a look, but sometimes the really graphic stuff sticks with me for too long. Some of the Tess Gerritsen books were really rough, but I really liked the books.
So here's my history, many years ago I used to read a lot of Patterson type books and another very popular author I can't recall his name, but then when he started churning them out with other writers so quickly, they really started to stink. Then I found Tess Gerristen and loved most of her books, but was bored with the last one I read, I think Bone Garden, and did not finish it, and since then, I have read only books on learning poker or books with stories about poker players. Honestly, books on learning poker are seriously boring and like reading text books for school. I must have read and not finished at least 20 by now.
Really, not a lot of variety in what I have liked/tried, and that seems to be my life in general. I know I don't like most movies that are period pieces, I have not figured out why, so I assume I would not enjoy books that take place too far in the past either. I would like to try to find a book that is more of a story, just an enjoyable read kind of thing, or even something sad with a little funny thrown in is OK.
Not a huge fan of Harry Potter, and never actually saw Lord of the Rings
, but I don't think that's for me.
As far as hobbies, they too are few, I would say finding really good/fun places to eat and trying all sorts of food, and playing poker. I do like to cook too, I'm not a "natural" cook, but I'm a good cook when I have recipes to follow.
It just really dawned on me recently just how 1 track and unadventurous I am, I need some more interests.
Thanks for taking the time to help!
