    30 Day Book Meme – Day 4

    30 Day Book Meme: Day 01 – The best book you read last year Day 02 – A book that you’ve read more than three times                                                   Day 03 – Your favorite series Day 04 – Favorite book of your favorite series My favourite book in The Hunger Games series was the first volume, The Hunger Games. I think it was like an introductory book because when you’re done with this first one and you already know there are two more to come, it is kind of obvious what will happen (however, I found Catching Fire more surprising than I expected!). I also grew a little bit tired of…

    30 Day Book Meme -Day 3

    30 Day Book Meme: Day 01 – The best book you read last year                                                                                         Day 02 – A book that you’ve read more than three times Day 03 – Your favorite series I think The Hunger Games! I never got to finish Harry Potter so, that would have been my childhood choice. But, just recently I found The Hunger Games to be something more mature and interesting than a mere YA series. I think there is a lot of social and envioronmental criticism of nowadays Western policies but also the difficult process of growin up. However, I got to admit that I haven’t read the last one in the series……

    Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

    I got into The Hunger Games and now I can’t escape them! 4/5 Catching Fire is the second book in Suzanne Collins’ triology and it shows a delicious development of the world she created in the previous book. Because we all already know the main characters, we sympathize with them, but, Collins spands their world as they visit the 12 districts. First, what I didn’t like: I know it’s a YA novel so the love story is important but I just want to shout at Katniss! How does she dare to treat Peeta like she does? Team Peeta here!! But, you do wonder who she’ll eventually choose. Then, I loved…

    The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

    The last two months were a reading mess and I just needed something easy yet catching to relax. After years of insisting (thanks Sadie-Jean), I gave The Hunger Games a try and I must confess I am a Hunger Games fan now. 4,5/5 Katniss is a 16 year old hunter in a post-apocalyptic America where there are 12 Districts completely subjected to the government. Every year, each district arbitrary selects a boy and a girl between 12 and 18 to be taken to the Capital city to fight til death, only one of them can survive. How can you manage to survive? Is there happiness when winning after killing 23…

    I’m back!

    I’m done with exams for two weeks so I’m reading… for mere pleasure! My good book buddy and friend Sadie Jean has been telling me of The Hunger Games forever and we usually agree on books. So, I decided to give it a try. It’s been 50 pages and I’m already addicted!! Also, this is the first book I’ve borrowed from my local library in at least 10 years. Just recetenly, it was announced Elizabeth Banks (love her) would play Effie, so I’m in! Regarding The Passage, I love it, I really do, but I needed a break from it. I plan to keep on reading to clear up all…
