Below is a list of the New York Times top five sellers under the hardcover fiction catagory. If you have read any of these books, please leave a comment and let us know what you thought.
1. American Assassin, by Vince Flynn. This book is about a super CIA antiterrorist agent named Mitch Rapp. (Move over, James Bond.)
2. Fall of Giants, by Ken Follet. The plot takes place during the Russian revolution and World War I. It involves five interrelated families from five different countries. Hmmm... can't wait to read this one.
3. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, by Stieg Larsson. This book is the third volume of a trilogy about a Swedish hacker and a journalist. Sounds thrilling, although it might be a good idea to read the first two books in the series. I think one is about a girl with a dragon tattoo or maybe it was a girl with a nose ring with a long chain attached.
4. The Reversal, by Michael Connelly. This book is your typical detective/lawyer-mystery novel. The plot features some lawyer named Mickey (Mouse?) and a detective named Harry--(I wonder if he is like Dirty Harry? That would be cool!)
5. Safe Haven, by Nicolas Sparks. A mysterious woman arrives in a small town. Naturally, folks in that small town are nosy and love to gossip, so they wonder and speculate about the mysterious woman. Questions are even raised about her past. Sounds like a page turner to me.
