When I first saw the trailer for The Hunger Games movie, I was not intrigued.
I had never heard of the book series until after the movie was released.
I had no interest in seeing the movie or reading the books.
Then I would hear people talking about the books-
how good they were,
how they couldn't put them down,
how they had read all 3 books in one weekend.
I became curious.
I saw the first book for $5 at Sam's Club.
So I bought it and read it on vacation.
Seriously - I couldn't put it down.
I watched the movie - pretty good adaptation.
Of course the book was better.
It took me a while to get to the store to buy the other 2 books.
I started book 2, Catching Fire, on a Friday afternoon,
and finished book 3, The Mockingjay, by Monday night.
Yes, they are THAT good!
I may even read them again soon!
