I have to admit, even during the day, I have a hard time putting a book down once I've started reading and my kids often sigh and beg me to stop reading my books and play with them. See? I really have to limit how often I can read books for pleasure!
Two weeks ago I mentioned the Guernsey Literary Potato Peel Pie Society and highly recommend it!
I also wanted to mention the book Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I believe this is actually teen fiction, but I found it so fascinating that I can't wait to read the next book in this series (it's on hold at the library...I just have to get there before the hold expires!)Image from Amazon.com
In The Hunger Games, life as we know it has ended due to wars. The government holds hunger games to remind the people who is in charge. During these hunger games, select youth from each district fight each other to the death. Whoever wins receives riches and glory, but is it worth it? The book is captivating, and I'll admit I actually liked this better than Twilight (gasp!).
