The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

My Rating:

About the book:
Twenty-four are forced to enter. Only the winner survives. In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death - televised for all of Panem to see.

Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

 What I think:

Wow . . Where do I start . . Well I guess I’ll start with the fact that I absolutely loved this book! Ever since I read the vampire academy series I’ve been looking for something in comparison and I’ve finally found it! I read it in one day, I was obsessed and couldn’t get away from the story line. Katniss is stunning, courageous women who is also strong and independent. I loved everything about her will to survive the games. She loves her family and will do anything to save them. I really am torn between Peeta and Gale! I really love both of them and I’m torn down the middle! I think Peeta is great and treats Katniss like a queen. Sometimes I feel as though Katniss doesn’t even deserve him because of how nice he is to her. She’s kind of putting him through a lot and I feel really bad for Peeta. Gale on the other hand I picture to be handsome and strong but I don’t know what will happen between Gale and Katniss. I feel like Gale can be stubborn and not very understanding at times. There are times when I want Peeta and Katniss to be together and sometimes I feel that with Gale and her too. Its complicated and I guess I’ll have to keep reading to find out!

This book is written so brilliantly its incredible. It takes you to a another world pretty much and I have no idea how Suzanne Collins did it. I try to explain it to my friends and its just too hard to explain in words and I tell them they just have to read it! Congratulations Suzanne Collins! :)
Katniss Everdeen is one kick ass girl!! I give it 5 stars!!

My Rating:

Awakened is the eighth book from the House of Night series. I loved this series! I’ve been waiting for this book to come out and once it did I had a hard time getting back into the series. I feel as though Zoey is no longer interesting to me, but I do love her best friend Stevie Ray and her love for the Raven Mocker, Rephaim. I do love this series and also like reading the other view points from the other characters. However, I do not like reading from Neferet’s view point, mainly because she’s an Evil b*itch from ****! Anyways I know this sounds creepy but I kind of like Kalona. . . I know it sounds crazy but there something sexy about him minus the whole killer part of course. I’m looking forward to following Stevie Ray and Rephaim’s relationship in the next book but hopefully there will be more sexytime between them. I hope theres more about them and less of Zoey and Stark. I love Zoey and Stark but I feel like there story has ended. Over all I really enjoyed it and I give it 4 stars! :)




Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris

My rating:

With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover Eric Northman and his "child" Pam are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot-which is much more complicated than she knows... Dead Reckoning


My Thoughts:
Dead Reckoning is a part of the Sookie Stackhouse series. Obviously nothing compares to the first three books of the series they were best ones. I enjoyed reading all of the 11 books but this one just didn’t do it for me. I still love Sookie Stackhouse and will continue to read the rest of the books but this book just seemed boring to me. I love Eric and I hope that Sookie doesn’t end up with Bill in the end. This book sort of seemed as though Sookie is going end things with Eric and start seeing Bill again although I hope that’s not the case.
