The Nightmare
by Lars Kepler (Joona Linna #2)
GoodReads

"Kepler provides a master class in noir."—The Boston Globe


A drowned young woman is discovered on an abandoned pleasure boat drifting by the Stockholm archipelago---strangely, her clothes are dry. The next day in Stockholm, a man turns up dead, hanging from a lamp hook inside his completely bare apartment---but how could he have hung himself with no furniture to climb upon? As Detective Inspector Joona Linna begins to piece together the two mysteries, he discovers that they are a mere prelude to a dizzying and dangerous course of events. From the internationally bestselling author of The Hypnotist comes The Nightmare, another spellbinding tale of Nordic crime.


Well, do I really have to explain why I do absolutely need this one? Because the Hypnotist was brilliant, breath taking, completely amazing! As you may understand, I loved every second of it and I can't wait to share with you my thoughts about it! Lucky me, the other day - I think this is a sign of destiny - I found the third book in the Joona Linna series in my favourite bookshop and.. for HALF THE PRIZE, since it was used. Now I just need the book in the middle, The Nightmare, even if the books can be read separately. I can't wait to go on with the series, just trust me, these books are so great - at least the first one was - so if you have a chance to read them, don't hesitate! You won't regret it!


To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?


What are you currently reading?
Looking for Alaska by John Green, I have always heard great things about this author, and in a reading group I'm in, they are constantly talking about him! So, I decided to pick this one up from the local library, and certainly on my to-read-next list there is also The Fault In Our Stars, which I am totally dying to read!




What did you recently finish reading?

True by Erin McCarthy, stay tuned to read my review in the next few days!
It was actually an easy read,  a simple and a little  stereotypical story about a nerdy girl who falls in love with the bad-ass boy. Nevertheless I have to say that the author's style was quite entertaining and flowing so I didn't find it annoying at all! And you know what? I think I will be also reading her next novel with the same characters of True, Jessica and Riley.



What do you think you’ll read next?

The Year of The Great Seventh by Teresa Orts, who I would like to send a great THANK YOU! Yes, she offered to send me a copy of her book for review, and I know how much shipping toward Italy might cost so thank you Teresa! I should be posting my review on July 6th so, I think I'm gonna start this one next, just to be prepared. The cover looks gorgeous, doesn't it?
