The last time I was this engrossed in a series was Harry Potter. I started reading Hunger Games on Wednesday. I hated that I had to go to work and put it down. But I woke up this morning (Saturday) determined to finish it. I left for a few hours and my husband picked it up and hasn’t been able to put it down. I had to remind him to eat dinner. And I picked up Catching Fire and finished it in a matter of hours.
If teens want a good read with suspense, action, violence, and a little romance, they should read these books instead of Twilight. Katniss, the main character, is a girl I could get behind. I would want her as a friend and I could understand why guys would fall for her. She’s strong, resourceful, and feisty. I was rooting for her the whole time. She has moments of weakness and she’s not perfect but she has a backbone and has a lot more going for her than her scent!
My brain is still buzzing from everything that’s happened in the story and I don’t know how I’m going to wait another year for the 3rd book.
If I write anything more than what is summarized on Amazon or on the book jacket, I’ll give something away. When my husband and I stopped reading to breathe and share thoughts, I accidentally let a plot point slip. So then he forbid me to talk. Thank goodness we have a long weekend. I don’t think he’s going to get much sleep until he finishes both books.
I don’t know what I’m going to read next. It’s going to be difficult getting into something else after living the Hunger Games for two days!
