I haven't read any of the books you mentioned yet, the ones you liked or didn't like. I really want to read the Dragon Tattoo series and Nightshade, but I'm not sure I'm going to like them either. But, I thought I'd at least check them out, lol.

I've not read any of these guys... but Girl With a Dragon Tattoo was one *intense* movie, I can see how folks might not enjoy the book, especially if it's even more graphic!

I couldn't get into the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo either though I loved the movies (both renditions).

Thanks for stopping by and following via GFC and Twitter!

A pity that you didn't like Andrea Cremer's Nightshade series. =/ I thought they were pretty good.

Thanks for stopping by! Old follower. :)

Thanks for stopping by my FF. So many people have told me about the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo but I haven't read it yet myself.

Hm...there are quite a few of the books your have listed that I've never even heard of. I've NEVER heard of Nightshade. I checked it and apparently it's from a best seller author...damn. I'm really out of the loop with some of these books.

I'll definitely check out some of your suggestions. Thanks for stopping by my FF.

I really, really hated Nightshade, Wolfsbane, and never read Bloodrose. Not planning on it, because I read spoilers. I started to though (borrowed the book from a friend). I'm not reading another Andrea Cremer wolf book again.

Thank you for stopping by my blog! I'm an old GFC follower :)

I agree. I didn't care too much for Girl with the Dragon Tattoo either.

Hi Angelica! I haven't read those. I've thought about Girl with a Dragon Tattoo, but somethings always held me back from it.

See if this will help with the question you left for me on my FF regarding the comment thread. Go to your Blog Dashboard. On the left you have the menu choices, Overview, post, pages, layout, etc. Click on Settings and then Other. In the middle of the screen you'll see Allow Blog Feed: I would select Full (which is how it looks like yours is set) or Until Jump Break (which is how mine is. If you add a jump break to a post then when you're on your main landing page, you'll see the "Read more" link that will open the full post.)
Next, (still under Settings) go to Posts and Comments. That will bring up your options in the middle of the screen. Scroll down to Comments and the way mine are set up is:
Comment Location: Embedded
Who can comment: Anyone
Comment moderation: Never (that's my preference)
Show Word Verification: Yes
Show Backlinks: Hide

That should allow you to reply back. Let me know if it doesn't work or you need help :)

I haven't actually read any of these yet, but my cousin told me about The Darkest Powers series and she said that I would love it. I really hope to get to it someday soon. Thank you so much for stopping by my FF. Old follower :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven

Hi from a new follower!

I love your site => so cute
Same boat here, I do not like the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I just could not find the connection besides it's a thick book and the font is just too small to my liking.

Here is my FF

Amie@MagicOf Words

PS if you know any idea on how make the link become only FF ( like most people did in their reply) , please let me know. Thanks
