|Daughter, Wife, & Mommy|
So I just read the Hunger Games series this week. I got it almost a year ago but when I went to college between 08 & 12, it completely burned me out on books. I was constantly reading and none of it for fun. I hadn't read for pleasure since, which is kind of sad since I've always loved it. I read my first book at 5, & never stopped. Til college killed it. But I'm happy to have picked it back up again. They were very edge of your seat books, & I liked them. But they are definitely preteen/teen geared in writing & I'm not a fan of how the author would write pages of Katniss's emotions and thoughts, but then have a major event happen in one sentence. The great amount of insight into the main character made her incredibly relatable, but the stark contrast of that to quick under described plot points stood out to me. The last book is making me look forward to the movie more. There are some things the movies have done better than the books, though they've of course left out a few things I think are important (felt the same when the Harry Potter movies came out) but overall I like them as much if not more than the books. It's just so hard not to talk about spoilers with hubby now that I know the end!
