WoW: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Yeah, I tried my hardest to enter every ARC contest for this book but there just weren’t enough! Alas, the book will be released in less than a week. I’ve already pre-ordered it and am awaiting it’s arrival very patiently.

catching fire

I never really did a formal review for The Hunger Games. There are a ton of them out there. If you’ve heard that it was good that is only the beginning of what I would praise it with.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games

It was raw, emotional, adventurous, mysterious, awesome, and encouraging. It was one of the best books I read this year.

I’ve since then loaned my copy out to my good friend Kevin, my mother-in-law, my husband, who hasn’t opened the book yet but doesn’t know what he’s missing, and a cousin of my husbands. And I actually have two copies of The Hunger Games because I had ordered it just before I won a contest for it! They arrived within days of each other.

Therefore, if you haven’t read this book you really should. It does not disappoint. The fact that Lionsgate has purchased the movie rights shows that it has been recognized. I just hope they stay true to the book, even if that means an R-rated rating. They might get away with a PG-13.

What are you waiting for?

ohmygoshineedthisbook!!!!!!

It doesn't come out until sept 7th in the UK, so I'm going to try my hardest not to get near the internet during my 7 day wait...I don't want any spoilers or anything!

I've taken the day off work to read all day on Sept 7th! I can't wait!

~Mary:
Taking the day off of work to read this book is a damn fine idea. Too bad I'm unemployed at the moment or I would have done the same thing!

Juju:
Yes, read this series! And thanks! I too love my layout! :)

I think I'm going to be fifty by the time I finally get to read HUNGER GAMES much less CATCHING FIRE. Ugh! I have it...it sits and stares at me every day. I just can't seem to find the time to get to it. ;)

I can't wait to read this one!! I entered contests too but no luck so far. I reserved it at my library. Earlier this summer I mentioned it to the librarian and she wasn't familiar with it. She was grateful that I told her about it and said she would place an order. I told her she better order more than one!

LOL What ~Mary said!
I've been waiting for this book for about a year now. I'm sure I can make it another few days....

My teen and I are still fighting over who gets it first. I'm thinking that since I'm going to pay for it... I get it first. But ... I'm a mom and a giver so ... maybe I'll let her read it first.

Maybe . . .


NOT!!!!!!!! ^_^
