The Book Nook

*It’s true, I really can read!

THE BOOK: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

<em>Catching fire</em> [Book]

 

My thoughts (which most likely carry little to no influence): This is the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy (read my review of the first here).  Predictably, Hubs and I gobbled it up with no shame.  In spite of being riddled with crappy writing, cheesy cliches and holes in the plot, it still was a good read.  Good as the first?  Not even close.  But, I still couldn’t help myself.  And you bet Hubs and I are going to push our way past the tweens to get tickets to the movie, now that it’s finally out!

Grade: B

Would I recommend it to a stranger on the bus (trying to make his way home)? *cringes*  Yeah, I totally would.

What I am reading now: I’m reading Tina Fey’s Bossypants instead of cleaning my landfill of a house.

  1. Everybody so went to “The Hunger Games” last weekend. 155 million dollars WOW. I am going to the movie but I can’t say I will ever read the books. Too many good books to waste time on a bad one. I think in this case, the movie is better than the read? I miss you thecandace and the hubs. ::((. I will come and visit soon. lv mamap

    • I finished it last weekend! Nothing like the library wanting their book back to force me to finish it. It was alright…I’ll be writing the Book Nook soon!
