2016 Booklist #16: The Girl in the Spider's Web

By David Lagercrantz. There's no doubt this is gripping and entertaining - and it kept me reading well into the early hours. It's not great prose, but the originals weren't that great either - I'd have to reread to compare more closely. One thing I wasn't so keen on was the embellishment of Lisbeth's backstory. I can see that it might have been necessary, but a lot of it didn't ring true to me - especially the comic stuff. Though a clever way of explaining Lisbeth's hacker name.

2016 Booklist #15: The Aware

By Glenda Larke. Have been meaning to read Glenda Larke for years. 'The Aware' is amazing - female main character, very original story with interesting science/anthropologic angle. Highly recommended. I'll read the rest of the trilogy for sure.
