One for the Money
By Janet Evanovich

Fiction 1994

I had a patron recommend this series to me and I finally decided to pick up the first book. It is certainly LOL (laugh out loud)-funny. A dash of humor with mystery makes this a great first book and I fully intend to continue with the rest of the series. If you want a book to read while you’re relaxing that doesn't require you to think too much, this will do the trick.

The Girl with the dragon tattoo
By Stieg Larsson

Fiction 2008

I read this book because I wanted to see what all the hype was about. It took me about 100 pages to get into the story, but once I did it really drew me in. If you like mysteries and quirky characters, give this first book in the series a try.
