Which version of the movie? The Swedish one or the newer Hollywood version? I'm not sure if either is a particularly accurate adaptation.

BTW, the original title of the book when translated from Swedish is "Men Who Hate Women".

Mine are mostly YA books with strong female characters from the fantasy drama, but I'm not putting these down to have titles there in front of you. These are all books that I earnestly read over and over.

The Song of the Lionness Quartet by Tamora Pierce
The Immortals Quartet by Tamora Pierce

Both of these book series have a strong female protagonist. One disguises herself as a boy in order to become a knight, and the other has a strange and unique power over animals that she grows to understand and control.

The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle

I can't recommend this book enough. Beautifully written, fresh and complicated characters, a melancholic tone and a pretty cheerless setting. Don't let the title fool you, this book is not rainbows and sunshine.

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden

Mr. Golden writes women extremely well. The historical backdrop of this story is fascinating, and it's easy to imagine yourself there. I could see everything that was described so clearly- and it was beautiful.

Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levigne

A new twist on the Cinderella fairytale. The world that Ms. Carson Levigne created was extremely creative and fun. Ella was a delightful character to read, headstrong and clumsy yet kind and brave.

Silverwing by Kenneth Oppel

The only book on my list that has a male protagonist. The story is told from the point of view of a bat named Shade. This book is written without a single reference to colors. Bats of course, don't see like we do. Mr. Oppel created a world with a culture, with Gods and Goddesses and a history of a great battle that banished bats to the night, never to see the sun again. This book is the reason I love bats so much

Any of The Princess Diaries series of books by Meg Cabot are always a fun read, plus any others she publishes

Although I'v never read it all my friends went crazy over The Mortal Instruments' - Cassandre Clare.

I personally loved The Fauts in Our Star- John Green. That one was really good! John Green is an exceptional writer!

^ Definitely The Faults In Our Star. I'm such a baby for shedding so much man tears.

Anna Dressed In Blood is also good if you're into horror/romance. It got me hooked. Also, Beautiful Disaster.

if you're looking for something a little off the beaten path, you might want to try "Dove" by Robin Lee Graham. Good book.

Eon and Eona by Alison Goodman are definitely worth a read. I want more from that small series!

I liked both the Cirque Du Freak books and the Keys to the Kingdom books. Read all but the last of the KthK books and there were only a couple things I could complain about.

One thing I hate about the books I have seen in stores is that almost if not all of them had a love interest in them... I hate reading about romance, in MOST occasions.
