Last time I posted I was talking about The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaimon. I still think it’s a great book, but I’ve taken a break from it. I started reading the Manga book Deathnote. One of my seniors had me borrow it. I’m about half way through that book as well. It’s fun to read b/c I’ve never read a graphic novel before. But then I was thinking about reading Tempted, the sixth book in the House of Night series. This book is super good too. Then, yesterday, I went to the mall… I should have known better b/c every time I go to the mall I stop at Barnes and Noble. And what did I buy? The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I HAVE TOO MANY BOOKS DISORDER…
When Keith came home from work and saw it on the table he was completely shocked, but wouldn’t tell me why. He grabbed the phone and called his friend to tell him what I was reading. Once the phone conversation ended, he finally told me. I guess his friends were obsessed with the videos a while ago. I didn’t even know there were videos! I doubt I’ll watch them. The book is cool and I’ll read more graphic novels, but it’s kind of repetitive. So that’s why I started reading Tempted.
This is a fun series that I began reading while I waited for Breaking Dawn to come out. A high school teacher and her daughter dual write the books. The storyline is fun and the characters are easy to relate to despite being vampires 🙂 I don’t think the storyline should be made into this many books, but I’ll keep reading them regardless. The only reason I stopped reading this book is because I walked into that darn Barnes and Noble…
The Hunger Games
The past two conferences I attended ranted and raved about this book and it’s series. I’ve never heard of them before that, but after hearing two YA gurus rave about it was enough convincing for me! I can’t explain why it’s so hard to put down, but it is. It is reality TV to the extreme! The books take place way into the future where a boy and a girl from each of the districts (similar to states) have to compete to survive. They do this each year, and it is broadcasted on TV. Only one person will survive, and EVERYTHING is watched by the viewers. I haven’t finished (yet), but I definitely recommend it.
So, who knows what other books I’ll finish this weekend. I know I’ll finish The Hunger Games and possibly Tempted as well. We will see 🙂
