I'm loving book club Friday lately, especially since finally I'm reading enough to write about a new book every week. I started this year off a bit slow but I'm really getting in the groove. Which brings me to my current reading:
The Hunger Games came highly recommended from Lindsay and Kristen two fabulous young ladies in my small group (both with equally fabulous blogs as well). Lindsay devoured the whole trilogy while on a trip to Prague and Kristen and her roommate, Meagan, couldn't put them down either. So, they talked me into finally removing the first of the series off my bookshelf and giving it a go.
I have to say that my reaction to this book is similar to my reaction to the Twilight series. After all the hype, I wanted to know what the fuss was about and started reading for myself. I would describe it as 'entertaining', though I admit it doesn't have that can't-put-this-book-down-even-to-eat feel for me that it seems to for others. I will likely read the other 2 books eventually but plan to take a break to finish the Michael Bennett series first (I finally got the fourth one from the library).
Worth reading for summer entertainment but not necessarily on my 'everyone should read this' list.
Anyone else read this and have similar or totally opposite feelings about it?
