The Hunger Games

So what's everyone reading right now? I started reading "The Hunger Games" on Saturday and I cannot put the book down but I have to every now and then due to having a toddler :) What a great book. I am almost finished with the first of the three.


Here is what the book is about from Barne's & Noble's website:

Overview:
Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning?

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival

I am hoping that by tomorrow night, I'll be on the second book, "Catching Fire!"


Overview
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.
As Recommended by Stephenie Meyer and Charlaine Harris.

And hopefully by April, I will be on the third book, "Mockingjay."

Overview
The greatly anticipated final book in the New York Times bestselling Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins.

The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

Who do they think should pay for the unrest?

Katniss Everdeen.

The final book in The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins will have hearts racing, pages turning, and everyone talking about one of the biggest and most talked-about books and authors in recent publishing history!!!!

I love the Hunger Games books! I think the first one is the best, but they are all hard to put down once you start. Enjoy!

I have heard so much about these books. Everyone is recommending them. I think I'm going to have to cave in to the peer pressure!
