This writer's Friday Finds

Friday Finds, hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading (one of my favorite blogs on which to comment)...

Through the world of blogging I came across a fellow North Carolina writer who seems the epitomy of southern charm and composure...And I am dying to see if her novels hold up to the image. From her carefully-worded blog, I can only imagine Elizabeth Spannin Craig's books are as beautifully written.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo appeared over and over on blogs this week. At least to me it stood out as something I had to read...And now I'll have to read the next two Larssons!


  1. Thanks so much, Michele! I appreciate being highlighted on your blog--and with Stieg Larsson! That's a real honor. Thanks!

    Mystery Writing is Murder

  2. I have been seeing The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo on a lot of blogs, too. On the TBR it goes...

  3. Pretty Is as Pretty Dies sounds intriguing. And how fun that the author commented on your blog!

  4. Avisannschild, I've really been impressed with Spann Craig's attentiveness to her blog and her work. I'll let you know what I think of the book when I get over to the book store! Glad to have you on the site, btw!

  5. Sharazad,
    I know 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' is going to be good, but something slogged me down at the start - I don't know if it was timing or writing. Also, I got sidetracked by Louise Penny's 'Still Life.' An interesting read: like a wordier Agatha Christie.
