Call Your Bookie: Hunger Games Trilogy

5 Nov

Kindle says.... Read The Hunger Games! And excellent yellow nail polish...

I happen to read through books like it’s my job (Kindle OBSESSED) – soooo I’m a bit of a dork, but on the bright side, you can always count on me for book recommendations – YOU Win! See how that works?  Anyway… my taste varies from sappy rom-coms to sci-fi to suspense/thrillers –I’m an equal opportunity book reader.  That being said, I’ll do my due diligence to keep you posted on what I’m reading and let you know whether it’s worth the read as well as what kinda person it would appeal to.  Then I’ll leave it to you to decide if you ARE that type of person (c’mon – I can’t do EVERYTHING!)

My latest reading material is The Hunger Games Trilogy (Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Mockingjay)by Suzanne Collins – there’s definitely a sci-fi element to these books, but don’t let that scare you off.  At the heart of it is a heroine fighting to bring down the Roman-esque Capitol who enslaves the people of its futuristic empire.  Which, admittedly, sounds ridiculous – but once upon a time, so did space travel and now we’ve got spaceships playing chicken with comets.  I digress… At least give the first installment – The Hunger Games – a try.  It’s a pretty great universal reader type of book: suspenseful, there’s some romance in there, and it’s action packed.  Solid read.  AND it’s being adapted into a movie in the very near future – keep your eyes open for that, kids.

Thanks to Ms. A Slutsky for putting the Hunger Games Trilogy on my radar.
