I have read four books since Christmas and I have four others downloaded and ready to go!
The first book I read was, The Help.
It was so good. I laughed in parts and teared up in others. I would highly recommend reading if you haven't.
I had heard that the Hunger Game Series was good, but I had my reservations. I didn't know if I would be into a series about a girl who gets called up from her district to fight other districts' children in some arena in a futuristic North America. It just seemed a bit out of the realm of what I tend to enjoy. But I didn't think I would ever be engrossed in wizards or vampires either. So I thought to myself... What the hell. It's only $5.99 (to download) for the first book. Why not?
Oh my goodness... I couldn't read them fast enough!! SO GOOD!!! I absolutely loved them. The characters have stayed with me. I find myself thinking about what Katniss (the main female character) would do. Throughout the book I was torn between Gale and Peeta (the male characters). It's a story of survival, sticking it to the man, finding yourself, fighting for what you believe in, and the power of love.
I found myself not wanting the story to end so I would try not to read as fast, but at the same time I HAD to know how what the outcome would be. Please take my advice and read these books!
May the odds be ever in your favor!
