Well Banned Books Week ends today. And as you know, I’ve chosen to read The Hunger Games.
A co-worker had told me the other day that I’d love the book and how I’ll finish reading it one day. Boy, she wasn’t wrong, even as I feel as my lungs are being set on fire, every time I cough.
I spent the whole day yesterday, laying in bed. Most of the morning wasted in sleeping and waking, stuffed up more than a turkey on Thanksgiving. Yet still managed to read all book one of The Hunger Games trilogy.
I haven’t read and finished a book in just one day since college. When I read Harry Potter for the first time. Although, I read it out of order, starting with book five.
Hell, I haven’t read a whole book in a day since junior high. When I’d spend my recess heading to the library to 1) to return a book(s) and 2) to take out more book(s). Just to spend the rest of recess, as the wallflower I was (and still a bit am), with a book glued to my hand.
I don’t what took me so long to read the series.
Anyways, I plan to do a review of book one real soon. A why you should read The Hunger Games, rebuttal against the reasons it was banned. Until then, I’m going to try my best to get over this cough. And deal with this pounding headache.
