      Is it too late to join in?  If not here goes and if so sorry :(

       

      The Hunger Games, I really was surprised with how much I liked this trilogy.  I was even more surprised with how strong it was for a teen audience.  These were not light reads and there were some pretty heavy choices to be made.  However, I think it did show that kids are more aware of the issues than adults may think they are. 

       

      And THE KITE RUNNER was a beautiful book as well, I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did and I look forward to what you all think about it.

                Very excited this book was selected!  My FSI recommended it as a cross between Twilight and Harry Potter.  Hope its good...

                  Hi guys...I've been abscent due to health issues, but excited for a new book. Also, CSandCK- I just got done reading a book that they say is the adult version of a cross between Twilight and Harry Potter- A Discovery of Witches. I've never ready Twilight or Harry Potter, but I enjoyed  "Witches" a lot!

                    Hope you are feeling/doing much better now Tricia!  Thanks for the recommendation on "A Discovery of Witches", I'll probably check that book out next.  I've never read Harry Potter, but will admit to being a big fan of all the vampire books. :)

                      OH girls. I feel bad for the last two books. I had a death in the family and a lot of stress. I forgot about the book totally. So two days ago I got it and rushed through. CSandCK THANK YOU SO MUCH for this book recommendation. I have seen it tons of times in the book store but thought it would be horrible. I'm addicted! I read the first 2 in less than 2 days and I just started number three. When you said Harry Potter meets Twilight I had serious doubts. But that's exactly what this is. I love these more than I loved Twilight. Book two made me sob like a child!! I definitely recommend this book!

                       

                      Now let's discuss! Did anyone else enjoy this as much as me????
