My Weekend View

IMG 0373

This was pretty much my view all weekend.  The background changed: our apartment, a coffee shop, the dinner table, our bed, in front of a roaring fire.  But the foreground, nope it stayed the same.  This weekend, in 24 hours, I read the first two books in The Hunger Games series, and oh my goodness...I'm obsessed.  Now I realize why everyone else and their mom has read this series.  It's amazing, addicting, and literally impossible to put down.  (Trust me, at 2:00 am on Sunday morning, I tried to force myself to shut my Kindle.  No luck; it was literally glued to my hands.)

So while I'm pretty sure I'm the last person on Earth to read the series, I've got no shame.  Because holy hell, the series is amazing.  I'm already planning to hide under the covers all night, book light in hand.  I can't promise I won't finish the last of the three books.  By tomorrow :)

PS: Am I the only one who is just now reading the series?  And now counting down to the movie?  And obsessing over every character and plot detail?

I haven't read the series yet! Grad school doesn't leave a whole lot of time (or energy!) for reading for pleasure ;-)

I just read them over Christmas and was so shocked how much I adored them and how difficult it was to put them down. ;)

You're not the only one. I wasn't going to read it, since it's technically a book for teens. But everyone says it's great, so I'm waiting for my sister to let me borrow her copy. =)

Ahhh, so good! If you experience some H.G. withdrawal, try Divergent. I liked that one almost as well.

I haven't read them yet, but I plan on doing so this week! I heard they are addicting!

I just started (and finished) reading them last week too!! They're such simple reads, and entertaining. As long as we're done by the time the movie is out I think we're good :)

I just read them in December - and I was the same way! I read them all in three days, I could NOT put them down!
