I am currently reading "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". I squeezed in the time to read the first 100 pages which the writing easily propelled me through but it is a 600+ page crime fiction novel. As much as I love to read I do have a day job so stay tuned for a review of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" to see if it lives up to its hype.

"If I loved you, I would tell you this" by Robin Black consists of a collection of short stories from the author. The stories run the gamut from a father coping with a blind daughter to a girl confronting the death of a sibling and everything in between. The stories are varied but they all share one overwhelming component: a compelling look at the human condition. "If I loved you, I would tell you this" is a good read. It deserves 5 out of 5 stars for its characters, plot, and the new twist it provides on familiar stories.
