The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was recently made into a movie, and because I think it’s wise to read the book before seeing the movie (and due to overwhelming reader response!), we decided to feature it as our January Book Club pick. Now, how will these monthly book club discussions work? First, I’m going to give you my opinion on the novel and then, you’re going to discuss below, using the comments section.
If you missed the post last week, we are starting up our very own book club. Each month, we will select a novel (using your suggestions, of course!) and then meet back here on the last Saturday of that month to discuss it. Without further ado, I'd like to announce that the inaugural pick of the CollegeCandy Book Club is...The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson!
•How much does the dragon tattoo cost? •J. Lo keeps cozy with her boy toy •How do you tell your guy he sucks at oral...? •Darren Criss comes to Broadway! •David Beckham is making underwear for H&M •10 TV casts we'd love to see reunite
I figured we might as well see it while there is still buzz around it since I can't read the 600-page novel in time to see it in theaters. So on we went. And boy, do I regret having my mom, dad, older sister and YOUNGER brother watch this movie next to me, let alone within 1000 miles of me.

It’s tough to buy gifts for the friend who loves to read. The choice should seem obvious, shouldn’t it? Buy a book. But what type of book? What has she read? What does he want to read? Hardcover or paperback? New or used? The questions are endless. And that’s before you even get into accessories. Are bookmarks too cliché? Will she even use them? Are all those gadgets really necessary?
