I’m usually late to the game on books that sweep the nation, but in January I decided that I was going to read this HUNGER GAMES that everyone was talking about, mainly because I heard there was a movie coming out and I really love to read books before the movie comes out. I just feel more educated when I do that. I know it doesn’t make me more educated, but what the heck it makes me feel good, and I like to do things that make me feel good.
I started the book and COULD.NOT.STOP reading it. If I had known what the book was about I would have never started. I mean seriously …. people get thrown in an arena have to kill each other. No thanks. Not my type of book.
I read it very quickly and abandoned all other readings that I was responsible for. When I finished I wanted more, but told myself I wouldn’t start the second one until I finished other things I had committed to. While I was in the hospital with Story I bought the 2nd book and devoured it as well. Once again I made myself wait a while to get the third so that my children would get fed each day, laundry done, and I would shower each day. I started book #3 yesterday. Oh my goodness how will this end?
Tonight I’m heading out to the movie to see THE HUNGER GAMES. I am so excited!!! I hope that the movie is as entertaining as the book. Since I’m not on facebook I haven’t seen many reviews of what people thought, so tonight I will know.
Have you read the HUNGER GAMES? If not. Go for it.
