Hunger Games and Stuff

Well, it’s been all quiet here because I was reading the Hunger Games trilogy for the past two weeks or so. That coupled with a trip to visit an old friend and…no new books were cracked.

First of all, just like countless others, I absolutely LOVED the Hunger Games. After finishing “Mockingjay,” I literally had to stop and just absorb everything before I could start functioning again. It was darker than I expected, yet every bit as wonderful. I’m totally a fangirl now – anticipating the movie hardcore.

Since I’ve been immersed in those books for so long, it’s really difficult for me to zone into another landscape and world. I am now attempting to do so by starting “Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children.” I was really excited for this to come out and I’ve owned it for a while, only to dust it off now. Halloween is coming so I figured an eerie-ish tale might be just the right tone setter for now until the end of the month.  I’m sure I’ll find other spooky books to read before then.

Update!

I know I’ve been rather quiet recently. I heard the crickets too.

I have started reading the Hunger Games trilogy and finally got on board the whole “obsessed with Hunger Games” train. Because the books are so popular, I decided not to review them. I mean, the first book has over three thousand reviews on Amazon. I really doubt my review would say anything the others have not. I can say that it’s definitely a 5-star read for me. I got so sucked into the book that I haven’t really read much else and it’s taken me a long time to read because I am savoring every moment.

So please bear with me as I read this trilogy and then continue on with my reviews and such. I’m also going to be doing a big “Mailbox” post because even though I said I would buy no more books – I lied. :X

Minor Rant

I’m totally hating UPS right now. I pre-ordered “The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern, because I was so giddy-ly excited for it. Turns out UPS claims they tried to deliver it and no one was home. Nuh uh! I was home and there was no notice left on my door!

I had planned on it being my read but since it’s not here…but will be tomorrow…I’m going to read the shortest book in my TBR pile, which is “Address Unknown” by Katherine Kressmann Taylor. I just really hope it’s enough and that I get my book tomorrow.

::fingers crossed::
