One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2012 is to read a book each week for the rest of the year. Writing about it will hopefully keep me motivated to read more! Feel free to recommend a book you love!












I finally finished The Hunger Games series. I really want to say that the rest of the books were just as amazing as the first one but there’s just something about the Catching Fire which didn’t quite appeal to me. In my opinion, after all the excitement and adrenaline in The Hunger Games, the second book seemed slow at first; it quickly redeemed itself towards the second half though.

The main character, Katniss, develops admirably throughout the course of the series and I think Mockingjay really highlighted her growth and strength. She is able to face her faults as a person and really starts to take control to achieve what she believes in. The ending (especially the epilogue) was a little weak for my taste, and semi-predictable. That may be the only complain I have for this book.

I went through both books very fast. Right after I was finished with Catching Fire I picked up Mockingjay and was able to finish it in one sitting. Which was nice for a change.

The movie is supposed to be coming out soon and I’m so excited for it (I’m sure I’ve already said). I definitely have high hopes and am glad I went through the books beforehand. I highly recommend!

What’ve you been reading? 🙂
