The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

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!

Full Black by Brad Thor. Born in the shadows and kept from heads of state, there are some missions so deadly, so sensitive, that they simply don’t exist. When one such mission goes horribly wrong, a wave of dramatic terrorist attacks is set in motion. With the CIA’s intelligence abilities hobbled, former Navy SEAL Team 6 member turned covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath launches an audacious plan to infiltrate the terrorists’ network and prevent one of the biggest threats the United States has ever faced.

Lazy Day E-Scape: Love Story by Jennifer Echols

Lazy Day E-Scape: Love Story by Jennifer Echols

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.
