I blew through The Hunger Games last night into this morning. It was a dumb time to begin since I knew I wouldn't be putting it down once I started, but I couldn't resist.

Faye, you were right. I did love it. I wish I'd read it as soon as you told me to. And everything I've been hearing about it from what seems to be everywhere - it's all true. I had high expectations, and so far, they've been met. Hooray. I want to talk about it! But I should probably finish the trilogy first.

Now I need to find some way to get at Catching Fire and Mockingjay, hopefully without the mini-adventure through the backrooms of the library. We just went two days ago, and also a few days before that. Mom is going to make :| faces at me if I suggest another trip so soon, but I don't have a car.

Meanwhile, I've finished the YW books I borrowed (still missing on Holiday and Mars), but I still have The Book of Night with Moon and To Visit the Queen, which I will get to as soon as I get some proper work done.

Ah, I've been trying to decide if I want to start those or not as well! I've heard so many good things. Should hunt up all my B&N birthday gift cards...

Can I call you?

It's good to know where my phone is anyway. Uh-huh.

I knew it :D

I have book two and three, but they're constantly being lent out. Library is a good bet. Make sure you get these together, because the cliffie at the end of Catching Fire sucks out loud. You've been warned.

You really called it! Not that I had any doubts. And ever since you suggested it, I've heard all these positive... personal... experiences? With the series. Anyway, I'm glad I finally at least got into book one, but I'll take your warning about that cliffhanger - this one didn't even end on a cliffhanger and I'm still all interrobang.

The high expectations are what's keeping me from wanting to read them. :( I have two friends who are all over them and it feels like so much pressure to like them too.

It made me feel like not reading them.

I know what you mean. This is why I have not watched Sherlock yet. I suspect I'm going to feel right silly when I finally get around to that, but in the meantime, I can't muster any enthusiasm.

Um. This book really worked for me? I'd say give it a chance if it's convenient and don't worry about it if it's not. Worse comes to worst, there may just be a lot of I Told You So in the future.

I haven't either! I have the first episode sitting on my laptop.

Hmm, I keep hearing about it so I suppose I'll eventually get around to it...
