Late to the Party

Have you read The Hunger Games? Catching Fire

Most likely you have, but I have just gotten my hands on these books and I am completely enthralled by Suzanne Collins' characters and world. How have I not read these before this week? I am so late to the party. At least I am right on time for the release of the third and final book next month. Perhaps it's a good thing I have waited so long, now I don't have to wait a long time between books.

I went to the bookstore earlier this week and found a used copy of The Hunger Games for $5. With all the hype, I couldn't pass that up. I am so glad I didn't. I read it all in a night. Today I went back and got Catching Fire. I couldn't wait any longer than a couple days. I tried. I even started another book. It will just have to wait now.  I have already started Catching Fire and will probably read it all night.


       The Hunger Games     Catching Fire (The Second Book of the Hunger Games)

Anyway, those are the books that came into my house this week. What did you get?

  6. I was late on the bandwagon with these--bought them for my daughter for Christmas and it took her months to decided to read them, but she loved them, and I really liked the first one

  17. From one Mari to another... I also haven't read these books - I'm waiting for a close friend to read it to say it's a must read.

    I'm glad you are enjoying the series!

    Have a great week, Mari

  21. I thought I was the last one to have read these books. Didn't realize there were so many others who still haven't read them. You all need to go find a copy. :) They are actually really good.
