What to read... What to read...

As of late, or really the last few years, I have found that the number of books that I read has dramatically decreased. I've realized that such a lamentable decrease is because lately I have heard less and less good about them and more and more bad. However, today I actually see some potential for entertainment in three books.

  1. Catching Fire, the second book in The Hunger Games series, will continue the tale of Katniss and her accidental rebellion against the capitol. I find that many times I cannot leave a series unfinished, and a series as action-packed as The Hunger Games is definitely no exception.
  2. Apocalypse Wow, a satire regarding the end of the world, was suggested to me by Lauren Gunderman, and maybe she could obtain if for me from her dad. And Lauren, if you are reading this, thanks for your offer and suggestion. Really, at this point, as previously stated, I am almost out of books. Moreover, this sounds very funny, based on what you said. So anyway, thanks again.
  3. Well, if I read Catching Fire, then Mockingjay naturally is another target, much for the same reasons as well. I must say, I am rather skeptical of some people's claims that Mockingjay is "the best book ever," but based on Collin's previous work, the book promises to be an incredible read.

  1. I wouldn't go as far to say that Mockingjay is the "best book ever," but it's definitely worth reading. Unlike many YA titles, it's real, immersing us in heartache and tragedy for which, as in life, there is often no quick fix or easy cure. I'll be eager to hear your thoughts.

    The satire sounds interesting. Perhaps I need to read it. You'll have to let me know! :)

    I lament your struggling to find good titles. I find there are so many titles I lament that I dont' have time to read them all.
