I just finished The Hunger Games, and although I originally hated the premise of the book, I couldn't get over all of the fantastic things I'd heard about it! Although I was afraid it might be a little scary, I absolutely loved it. The adventure of the book was so good that I was almost afraid to see what would happen next, but absolutely had to keep reading.
*I'd like to note: although this book is geared towards teens, that didn't turn me away (hello, Harry Potter AND Twilight). It made for a fast read (when I actually sat down to read it) and still had a very relatable storyline.
Now that I'm getting back into the reading thing again, I've layed out my next 5 books. My goal is to finish them all by the end of Christmas Break, January 2nd. I have no clue if it's possible since 3 of the 5 books are over 600 pages, but I read the final HP in 2-days, so I know I can do it as long as I don't get side-tracked!
