okay...maybe not such a great idea to start this book in the middle of all the chaos that's been happening lately, but I did. BIG mistake, because once I started it I couldn't put it down!
It's just that good!
Here's a synopses of the book:
"Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When Kat's sister is chosen by lottery, Kat steps up to go in her place."
It's has the perfect amount of adventure and
romance for my taste.
I definitely recommend if you're looking for a good, quick read.
