Sunday, January 29, 2012 – So what to read now… I had heard from several people that the next Harry Potter or Twilight is going to be “The Hunger” series. Apparently the books are amazing and the first book is set to come out as a movie on March 23. Hopefully I will be able to finish the first book before I go see the movie. The previews look really interesting. Honestly I have no idea what this series is all about so it should be an interesting read. Here is a quick synopsis from Goodreads:
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister Primrose, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before — and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
Can’t wait to start the book and see what all the hype is all about!
