Encouraging reading is very important to me. We read to our kids every night now and it puts a big smile on the entire family. We all sit down together upstairs read two books, one for each kid and then settle them down for bed with a good story.
My husband and I both read as we go to bed too. The Hunger Games was recommended to me and I’m going to try them out. I could use a break from re-reading Twilight over and over again. Yes, just slap a big NERD across my forehead please!!
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capital surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capital is harsh and cruel and keeps the other districts in line by forcing them to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight-to-the death on live TV. One boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and sixteen are selected by lottery to play. The winner brings riches and favor to his or her district. But that is nothing compared to what the Capital wins: one more year of fearful compliance with its rules. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her impoverished district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to death before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. Bestselling writer Suzanne Collins delivers equal parts suspense and philosophy, adventure and romance, in this stunning novel set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present.
If these guys liked it then I’m sure to like them because I love Stephen King and Stephanie Meyer (NERD across my forehead)
