Hunger Games FTW!

I just finished reading this.  In a day.  At lunch.  On the train.  While walking home.  Before dinner.  After dinner.  I couldn't. Put. It. Down.  And that doesn't usually happen to me.  It happens to Tim all the time... he really likes his books... but just last night, I was finishing Harry Potter #2 (Chamber of Secrets) and didn't bat an eye at closing the book for dinner right when the slytherin snake was attacking!

I hate bandwagoning but Hunger Games is worth getting on the bandwagon for!  (Though I like to think of it as finally getting around to it and not bandwagoning.  Which is true!)  I wanted to read the books first since I end up picturing the actors and such if I watch the movie first, then read the books.  Kind of like Harry!  I've actually only read Harry Potter book 2 and 3 up until like last week, when I finally read book 1, and I haven't read the rest of the series.  Though now when I read I picture Harry, Ron, and Hermione from the movie.  :)

Anyway.  Highly recommend this one!  We ordered the hardcover set but it's ship date on Amazon is delayed.  So I got this copy from the library (the waitlist is ridiculously long but I think people read it fast, so I actually waited a relatively short time).  Hope our books come soon so I can read the second!


  1. Funny that I felt the opposite! I couldn't put down Harry Potter, but it was easy to put down Hunger Games. And I read all the HP books before I saw their movies, too. I think, though, that it was because I knew what was going to happen in the Hunger Games, so I didn't feel like I had to finish right away. But since I didn't know what to expect in Catching Fire I read that one faster. And now I'm on Mockingjay!

  2. Oh, did you watch the movie first so you knew what was going to happen? I didn't know anything about the book at all! No summary, back of the book, nothing! I'm waiting for our order of the books to come in... or if the library comes up with it first. :)

  3. Same thing happened to my husband this week. We're getting ready to watch it on Friday in Grenada! It finally came to the island. :)

  4. I haven't jumped on the wagon yet..but its only a matter of time, lol. Books that are hard to put down are the best sort of books :)
