Good reads!

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!

I have to agree, I was VERY hesitant about these books but my sister kept asking if I had read them yet. So I read the first one, and loved it. Same for the second one. The third one I kind of got lost and bored, but still it was good. Not sure about the ending though, I am still absorbing it and trying to figure out if I liked how it was wrapped up.

I never thought I would like these either. I loved the first one and the second one is next on my list!

LOVE the Hunger Games. I just finished book 2 and need to request book 3 from the library.
