review time!

Got my new books last thursday.
Guess what?
I finished the second one yesterday =)

Apparently I have WAY too much time on my hands. I was able to read two books in 6 days haha!

I read all the books I wanted to read since my last post.
The Hunger Games CHECK!
Catching Fire CHECK!
Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse CHECK!

And I have to say, SOOO GOOD!!!
I heart The Hunger Games
It was action packed throughout the whole story. I was bringing the books with me everywhere! I felt for the characters through everything. Katniss, Peeta, Gale, Haymitch, everyone! The Games are brutal. It's hard to imagine a world like the one Katniss lives in. Panem is a place unlike our own, but you can understand the struggles the people of the districts go through. Despising the Capitol is easy, but unfortunately relatable. Continuing the story into Catching Fire was very easy. Just when you thought all was well with the world, things only got worse.

I have read it is going to be a trilogy. I can't wait until the third book comes out!!

Bran Hambric was another good read. I enjoyed it and kept reading on to find out more because I was hooked. There was just something about it that seemed off while I was going along. It felt long. I felt the focus was slightly off. I definitely had to rethink some parts to find out what the characters were talking about. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but something was off. Just saying =)

I have no more new books to read at the moment. I need to stop buying books. I should really check out a library. For now I'm going to reread some of the books I have with me at school.

But right now I'm going to do some research for a presentation next week and study for a quiz tomorrow =)

I adore The Hunger Games/Catching Fire. I couldn't put them down. Seriously love me some Peeta. I can't wait for the next book either!

I want to pick up Bran Hambric but haven't gotten around to it yet.

Cute blog! 8)
