I've haven't been good with reading books lately but after hearing about The Hunger Games from fellow bloggers, much love, illy and life is bananas, it sure sparked an interest. I was intrigued that people are raving about this book. I had to see for myself. So, on my way into work on Friday, I stopped by Indigo and picked up the first book in the series. I read Friday night and all day Saturday in between making some things for my friend's baby shower and cleaning up the condo. This morning I finished the book.
I am not going to give you a description of the book because I went into reading it blind. I had no idea what the story was about except for reading the little blurb on the back of the book. Certainly from its description, I knew that I probably wouldn't be interested since I love books about high society (Gossip Girl), fashion (Shopaholic series) and vampires (Twilight saga). After finishing the book, now I am tempted to run to Chapters and pick up the the 2nd in the series, although being a bit type-A, I hate the fact that the first book is paperback and the next two books are hardcover. I really don't want to wait for them to come in paperback. I just can't wait.
Like the two bloggers who encouraged their readers to go read the book, I encourage and suggest you read The Hunger Games too. I don't think you would be disappointed and like me, I want you to go in not knowing anything about the story so you can't pass judgment.
