Does The Hunger Games movie live up to the book?
I know, I know… I am so very late to the party, but I am now fully on-board the Hunger Games bandwagon. I resisted for as long as I could, but the good reviews just kept rolling in from fellow readers I respect a great deal. So, I listened and bought the trilogy.
Last week (yes, just last week), I finished Book 1, The Hunger Games, and can’t believe I waited so long to start this series. I loved it! And what incredible timing I have, since the movie comes out today and I have tickets to go see it this weekend!
Over the last few weeks, I’ve found myself reading murder mysteries, spy thrillers and psychological suspense novels to the exclusion of all other genres. It was time for a change of pace, so on Sunday, I picked up Love Story, by Jennifer Echols.
She’s writing about him. He’s writing about her. And everybody is reading between the lines.
Love Story is a young adult contemporary romance novel. Set at New York City College, this is the story of Erin Blackwell, who grew up on her grandmothers’ racehorse farm in Kentucky, and Hunter Allen, her stable boy.
What would it be like to know you would die in four years?
WITHER, author Lauren DeStefano’s debut young adult novel and Book 1 in The Chemical Garden Trilogy, brings us into just such a dystopian world where modern science has created a genetic time bomb.
In a botched effort to perfect the human race, scientists have released a virus into the DNA that has left all males with a lifespan of just twenty-five years and females with only twenty years to live. While geneticists are searching for a miracle cure to restore a normal lifespan, girls as young as thirteen are being kidnapped and sold into polygamous marriages to keep the population going until an antidote is found.
