Waiting on Wednesday - Mar. 24, 2010


This weekly event is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we get to share which upcoming reads/new releases that we just can't wait to get our hands on.

My WoW pick for this week is: The Girl Who kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson which releases on May 25, 2010:


As The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest opens, Lisbeth Salander—the heart and soul of Larsson's two previous novels—is under close supervision in the intensive care unit of a provincial Swedish city hospital. And she's fighting for her life in more ways than one: when she's well enough, she'll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for a triple murder. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will have to prove her innocence, and identify and denounce the corrupt politicians who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to become victims of abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot her revenge—against the man who tried to kill her, and the government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.

I'm also picking The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played With Fire, both of which have been patiently waiting on my bookshelf for a few months now :-( I've heard such great things about this series, that I'm anxious to read them all!!

So, what book are you waiting for?
