What I've been reading!

Hi Ladies,
sorry for the lack of blogging... been very busy with all the Christmas shopping!! And This Friday, I'm going to Texas with my other half. His mom's families are all there and it will be the first time I meet them! Spending Christmas and New Years with them this year.

Anyhow, back to the topic...  I've been reading this series of book by Suzanne Collins:

  • The Hunger Games
  • Catching Fire
  • Mockingjay

I finished the first book, The Hunger Games, not long ago and I was hooked!! I'm half way through the second book and can't wait to finish the whole series. 

Here's the small summary from the book:
"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 other districts in line by forcing them to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight-to-the-death on live TV.
One boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and sixteen are selected by lottery to play. The winner brings riches and favor to his or her district. But that is nothing compared to what the Capitol wins: one more year of fearful compliance with its rule. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her impoverished district 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 weigh survival against humanity and life against love."

I strongly recommend this trilogy if you love reading!! ^^
Till next time...~
