"Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins Read: Check
Wow! What an awesome book. I put this on hold at the library 2 weeks ago and my request came through today. I picked it up this morning and thanks to a long nap by Hannah (she was up super late last night, since we went to Bri and Cyndi's for dinner, and now she is at her door crying about not being sleepy) and a birthday party Kenzie went to (not to mention a patient and understanding husband), I was able to read it today. My heart aches for Peeta. I wish Katniss had purer motives, but I love how she is growing and examining her feelings. Ohh Peeta. I wish you didn't love Katniss so much, so innocently. 
I liked this book so much I just bought it and the sequel at amazon.com. I completely and wholeheartedly recommend this book for the suspense, action, romance and interesting dystopian themes.

Haha! I knew you'd love it! I was going to offer to lend you the second book, but I see that I don't need to. Happy reading. I bet the second book makes you mad (at parts). Can't wait to talk to you about it.

I read the first two books in two days. LOVE THEM! I hear the 3rd comes out in August.

I don't know if I can read this book--I always hear how great it is...but descriptions remind me of that horrible movie with Arnold it it--Running man--Yuck!

One of my favorite series. I actually pre-ordered the third one on Amazon in January -- 8 months before it comes out!!! I love Peeta too, but I'm afraid she may not choose him in the end. I think any boy who can bake bread and makes cookies is a real catch!
