The Hunger Games
Haven't been here for a while - May was very busy for me. I will be back soon with some family updates, including the big birthday trip to Disneyland. In the meantime, I have a book update.
In May I finished The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Not my usual type of genre but I read it because Grandma Sharon picked it up at Costco and we both agreed we'd give it a shot because the whole world seems to be talking about it! Surprisingly, I liked it. In fact, the beginning starts off with such suspense - I've never known a book to have me on the edge of my seat by page two. I thought that that alone definitely deserves some praise. There were a few times I felt like I was in the middle of a video-game but not too much, and I guess that's what made it the perfect novel for a movie. Overall, I liked this. I can see why the world is obsessed.
