I'm a sucker for a good book!

So, being as I have my degree in English, I feel compelled to always be reading. I had been hearing about 'Hunger Games,' so I decided to check it out of my local library - I'm a library freak! Anyway, come to find out, this book is young adult. What?! It takes place in post-apocalyptic US and there is the Capital and 12 outlying districts. Once a year, the capital randomly picks one boy and one girl aged 12-18 to participate in the Hunger Games. These are games shown on national television, and it is basically a blood bath. The last person, or child, standing wins. The story is soooo good! I can't wait to start the second and third. I also love love love trilogies. Anyway, I checked out a couple books to keep my company until my second book in the trilogy comes. I'll let you know if they're any good...stay tuned!


  1. I had the same experience, when I read "I am not a serial killer" - young adult, but mature content and a very good trilogy! The last book is still not out on that, so I'm going to pick up Hunger Games while I wait. Thanks for the tip!

  2. I'm awful with these kids books! I've read all the House of Night as well. I have a degree in English too...I should get a tuition refund! Ha
