My love of reading was not murdered by Tolkien after all. I absolutely devoured The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins on my vacation. I really only read for a few hours total, but this was one of those books that forced my eyes to try to keep up with my brain as I tried to cram in every word as quickly as possible. It was a real page turner, but I didn’t find out until the end that it was only book 1 of a new series! Now I’m going to find myself itching for the next one. Thankfully, it is being released in September! However, I hear it is going to be a trilogy so that means after I read the second book I’ll be forced to wait for a third.
I guess if I can survive the Harry Potter wait, I can survive anything, right?
