#184 Make a list of books I want to read and read them all
#16- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Ok folks, now that the semester is finished I can go back to the books I want to read on my bucket list. I am not ashamed to admit that I read The Hunger Games in one day. It was really good. It's not overly poetic or filled with amazing examples of literacy, but it is definitely an enjoyable read.
If you haven't heard of The Hunger Games, then I will assume that you are living under a rock because this book really reached it's height when "they" announced it was going to be a movie. And of course when a book is about to become a movie there is a frantic line of book lovers at the cash register itching to compare the book to the movie (hey now, it's ok I do this too).
The Hunger Games is about a young girl named Katniss (comment on this name below- I am still searching for baby names!) who volunteers to take her sisters place in this gladiator horror "reality show" for the superior land of their nation.
This story is basically a wicked twist on communism in the world after ours.
Entertaining, yes. And The Hunger Games is the first book I have read in a while that I actually shed tears (even multiple times) and I will not blame my crazy pregnant hormones!
I know I only listed the first book on my list of books I want to read, and I really want to move on but I have to say I am sucked into the series and will be continuing the next book later tonight.
