Hunger Games

Has anyone heard of it? It's a book by Suzanne Collins, and I really like it. I was talking to my friend Wally about it, and he told me I should read it, so I went to the library to check it out. All their copies were checked out, though, so I requested it. Then I decided I didn't want to wait that long to read it, and after school the next day I went to the bookstore to start reading a copy there until the library got mine in. I read to chapter 4 and, ironically, had to go home because I was so hungry. Haha.

It was really good, though. I got some money (thanks Dad) and went back to the store and started reading again. This was on a Friday. I read another chapter, then bought it and went home to read it until I had to leave for a Branch Barbecue, then we had CJ's bachelorette party, and I got home around 10:30. I continued reading until I finished it at 4:30.

But it's a really good book. There's 2 more in the series, but they aren't on paperback yet, so I'm gonna wait before buying them. Maybe I'll stop by B&N tomorrow to start reading the 2nd one, though haha.

And, side note, I had a test today in math. It was pretty easy. I may have missed the question about distance, but I think I'm ok on that one. And I didn't get the bonus, but it doesn't matter because our grades can't go above 100%. I was the first done, and it only took me about 30, 35 minutes, and when I turned it in the teacher asked if she made it too easy. I just smiled and left.

I've heard of this book. Someone I know was so excited about reading it that I needed to help her buy a copy... maybe I can borrow that copy, then I'll get hooked and buy the others?

You'll have to be careful about starting the next one in the book store. You might end up buying the hard cover because you decide you can't wait :)

Haha, this is very true. Thanks for the warning, Shinobi.

I've been reading The Blade Itself, by Joe Abercrombie. It's a pretty good book, I'm not quite halfway through it but I'd recommend it so far.

Carolyn has the first one, she borrowed it from her mother in law, who is now reading the third one. Lorna says it's an excellent series.

Samara said...

Cool, Jason, I'll look into it.

Mom, are you talking about The Hunger Games or The Blade Itself? haha
