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
