Have You Read These?

It’s been awhile since I’ve been so consumed by an author’s books, so I had to share. Late last year I took a chance and bought The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I’d heard good things about it, but I had no idea that I’d get sucked in to it so quickly. I picked this up on my vacation time in December, and finished it Christmas morning. And as soon as I put it down, I wanted to pick it right back up and start it again.

I held off on buying Catching Fire for a few months. I told myself I would buy it for myself as a reward for finishing my next to last class at school. And at the end of March, it was mine! I picked it up right away and delved back into the world of Katniss. This book got me from the first few pages. Definitely a well-deserved reward for finishing my class.

And finally, the last book in the trilogy was released a couple of days after my birthday, so I bought it as a belated birthday gift for myself. I couldn’t wait to jump right back in to it.

And book three did not disappoint. I spent the whole book on the edge of my seat, wanting to know what happens next but afraid to find out what happens next. I’m happy to see now that so many people are starting to get hooked on these books too. They are so good and well-worth a read. So, if you haven’t read them…run right out and pick up Hunger Games. You won’t regret it! I can see myself re-reading these again in the future, or at the very least getting the audiobooks so that I can enjoy them again and again.

  1. My only regret about these books is that I've finished them! I am jealous of people who get to start them and delve into the world of Katniss. I know this sounds goofy, but I am amazed at the detail that went into the books while not requiring a thousand pages to convey each detail. I feel like I could go into District 12 and know where everything was, recognize it all, know the characters… and the books aren't huge, involved reads. Excellent books! I'm glad I listened to you. 🙂
