The Hunger Games

I have a new obsession. It's this book. I had heard about it from numerous people and for my birthday back in Septemeber my brother and sister-in-law bought it for me. I have been refusing to read any books lately because I am taking an Independent Study class that I need to finish. Well, over the Memorial Day week-end I decided to take this book with me for enjoyment on the plane ride. Little did I know the affect it would have on me. It had my attention from the beginning. I didn't want to put it down. I read during my entire flight to Long Beach. While visiting Eric I didn't really read much because I wanted to spend time with him. Well, on the plane ride home I got even more into it. This nice girl next to me was really chatty. Usually I am ok with that on plane rides, but this time I was not. I wanted to read, and read I did. I probably would have stayed up all night that night to finish it, but I had to go to work. I think I stayed up too late for the next few nights just to finish it, and it was so worth it. I loved the book. It was suspenseful and thought provoking, at least for me. I loved the characters and just the whole story. My friend is bringing me the second book for me to read. I can't wait. I hope the second one is as good as the first. This same friend told me that they are making it into a movie. AWESOME! I am definitely going to see it. I feel like a nerd writing about how much I love this book. If you haven't read it, get up from your chair RIGHT NOW, go to the nearest library or bookstore and get this book. You will thank me. I promise. Anyone else out there love this book as much as I do?

I LOVE THAT BOOK! Don't read the book jacket to the second one...it'll give too much away. And it looks like you're just in time because the third book comes out in August!
