I’ve already told everyone that The Hunger Games series came to me highly recommended. BUT, now I am HIGHLY recommending it. Or at least the first novel, The Hunger Games. I admit I wasn’t sure I would like this series. I thought it might be more sci-fi than what I usually read. And, let us not forget, it was written for the tween population. But to say that I loved this book, might be an understatement. I literally didn’t want to put it down. I was reading it during commercials, at the nail salon (where I may have shed a tear when one of the tributes was killed), and even seriously considered reading it at stoplight’s! Don’t worry, safety first. Everyone I know who has read it, feels the same. So definitely check it out. And, I cannot wait to start the second book, Catching Fire.
