What are you reading?

"I enter a nightmare from which I wake repeatedly only to find a greater terror awaiting me." -Katniss Everdeen....Hi again and thanks for stopping in! Have you read any good books lately? I just finished The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I can't believe I didn't come across this book sooner. I purchased it as a Christmas gift for my son but after looking over the first page it was obvious he wasn't getting it back until I finished. And once I started reading I couldn't put it down! 

The novel transports the reader to the Empire of Panem (the United States in the not-so-distant future) and is the first book in a trilogy detailing the conflicts of Katniss Everdeen, a 16 year old girl residing in District 12. Katniss must overcome impossible odds to survive when she is forced to compete in a 'kill or be killed' reality tv competition known as the Hunger Games. If you haven't picked up this brilliant and fast paced novel you have a real treat in store! So get the book, find a cozy chair, and in the words of Claudius Templesmith, "Ladies and gentlemen, let the seventy fourth Hunger Games begin!"   


  1. Sounds like a great read. I'm reading a tatty old copy of "Little Women" I found at a charity shop for 10p. It's one of those titles you always mean to read but never get around to it. It's a lovely book too, so much more in depth than the movie, but then the books usually are!

    Happy New Year, Anna

  2. That's the truth Anna, the books are always better than the movies. I LOVE Little Women!! I have fond memories of reading it as a teenager. Now I'm inspired to re-read it!
    Hugs, Nancy
