Hunger Games!

Well we had our econd book discussion this Monday and discussed Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It was really good! This book also happens to be on my list of books to read by the end of the year! So it was like a 2 for 1!!! My only advice for you is that if you read this book, make sure you have the second one, Catching Fire, on hand as well. I made the mistake of only having the first one and am now waiting to get the second one from the library! These books are super popular so make sure you come into the library to get a copy! Here's a review!

"Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with every one out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love."-goodreads

The third book in the series entitled Mockingjay comes out August 24th so be sure to get on the list (Ms. Laura is already number 333!)!!!
