You all. Seriously. These books. I wanted to blog about something yesterday. I had a few ideas rolling around in my head. But I COULD NOT make myself put these books down to write. Couldn't do it. Every second of Henry's 3.5 hour nap, I read. And as soon as he was asleep for the night...I read. And maybe, just maybe, I let him sit there and watch Sesame Street for two hours...so I could read. I mean, he was playing too...but...my motive....READ. (Out of guilt I did them take him to the mall and attempt to play with him in the little kids area. Come to find out, that place terrifies him unless I am glued to his side and all other kids stay away. But we DID get a double doozy cookie and my sisters birthday present, and two new pair of shoes for Henry, so it was an overall successful trip).
But anyway, back to the point of the post. The Hunger Games series. I know lots of blogs and Internet people are talking about it. But I am a bandwagon sort of person, so I jumped on. I mean, that is how I found Twilight and you all know how I loved that. And you know how I love Harry Potter (remember me going all the way to Chicago to the Harry Potter exhibit? Right. Huge fan) And I am a book series fan in general, so when the buzzing really got rolling I went ahead and borrowed the first book. And then I devoured it. And now I am almost done with book two, and it is so so so so good. (I should be a book reviewer with deep moving descriptions like "so so so so good") and I CANNOT WAIT to read book three, but at the same time already sad that there are only three books and then it will be OVER.
And that's how I know it's a series I love. Because I am already mourning its end, even though I am not to it yet. I know I will miss these characters. I know I will buy and reread these books like I do Harry Potter and Twilight. I know I want to get the audio books and listen to the story. Because this story...it won't get old with rereading. The characters are amazing, the storyline is original, it's just all around addicting.
So...go get it! Read it. You wont regret it!
