At the behest of my bff's, I read all three books in the Hunger Games series- and loved it! The story is so engaging, it only took two days to finish the first and second book, and the third at first dragged but once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. I fell in love with the characters, and just the struggles that they all go through were completely mind blowing, and I loved every second of it.
Good thing I didn't watch the trailer for the movie (coming out next March) until after I finished the first book. Now trying to arrange a way to see it with the girls.. Love love love.
