Hope that everyone is having a good New Years Day. I am enjoying our last few days of freedom before the grind of college classes start again. I may end up writing about Shakespeare since that will be one of my new classes.
I have decided that my favorite book that I read during 2009 was 'Catching Fire'. It is the second book in 'The Hunger Games' series. I am patiently awaiting the third installment of this series. (Impatiently is more like it actually, having a hard time concentrating on other books.) Enough of being impatient. The Hunger Games series is about a girl who lives with her mother and brother on the outskirts of a small village. The world is completely different for her. She volunteers for something called the Hunger Games after her younger sister is picked. She goes in her place. There is romance,(young romance), action adventure, and you never know what is going to happen next. It's a book that keeps you guessing, which I love. You can only read so many books that are predictable. As if we don't have enough adventure in everyday life. I like other stay at home mothers and fathers likewise sometimes crave a different sort of adventure, the kind that I will never see in my lifetime. I truly felt as though I was living through this character, and was shocked and terrified at every dangerous and treacherous turn that came about during the everyday struggle that was The Hunger Games. I thoroughly enjoyed this series and would strongly recommend it to anyone male or female any age. Check it out, and you may finish both of them in time for the release of the third book. I will post it when I find out the release date and the name of the upcoming one. Happy reading!


  1. You sold me, I think I'll have to read the Hunger Games now!

  2. I'm curious about the city of glass,ashes,bones. what genre are they?

  3. I did a new posting on the City of Bones: Mortal Instruments series. Let me know if you have any other questions. I LOVED those books and HAD to own them for my collection. I don't buy books unless I really enjoyed them.
