Good Reads / The Hunger Games

Have you read this yet?

WOW WOW WOW! Mayra at Life is Bananas blogged about this book a while back, so I started reading it last weekend. WOW WOW WOW! It is INTENSE. Wow. It almost gave me a heart attack, but I wholeheartedly recommend it.  I blew through this book at a record pace (it took me a little over a day to read it), and I have ordered the next two books in the series.  Whoop Whoop!



Happy Friday to ya!

I heard they were amazing. Thanks for the recommendation! I trust your very opinionated opinio (it's a compliment, I promise!)

What's it about?!?! So curious...

I used to LOVE to read. LOVE. Law school and my job have ruined that for me. I read ALL day and it is so hard to go home and want to read more. But perhaps I need to make an exception for this book...

Happy weekend lady!!

brittany said...

Claire Kiefer said...

Loved it! I never would have picked it up on my own, but we read it for our teacher/student book club, and oh my goodness it was good! Believe it or not, I haven't read the second two (weird, I know) but I can't wait to.

Jill said...

Read "A Discovery of Witches" too. You'll love it.
I've read the whole Collins series. At breakneck speed. I loved them! Now, my husband is reading them. A movie is supposed to be made about them.

Char said...

blueviolet said...

I have it, but haven't started it yet. I'm reading Shanghai Girls right now. So good!

Jessica said...

You know I'm reading them. Well read first 2 waiting for third from the library.

SabinePsynopsis said...

You've really managed to increase my curiosity by giving NOTHING away (WOW WOW and intense doesn't count. Intense, that could be chocolate, and WOW a cute bloke)... now I MUST check out this book.
