    Holy smokes! I finally got enough nerve to read Hunger Games. Wow! I can see why they are a big hit. Took me 3 days to read all 3! I'd start reading while kids nap then pick it up again after dinner and stay up till midnight to finish. It was an easy read but very hard to read because of they story. I cried about a dozen times each book. Books don't get me crying but these just broke me.


    City of Bones series was kinda a disappointment. Read the 4 that are out and I'll finish the other two when she writes them but they weren't as great as everyone was saying IMO.

    Now I have 4 Beverly Lewis Books to read this wk.

    Have to know Alikat and Vertigobarbie did you ever read the shack?

    Glad you loved Hunger Games! I'm reading the 4th Mortal Instruments book now too and while they are OK, they are nowhere near as good as Twilight or Hunger Games. I'll probably finish the series when it's available just to find out how it all ends.

    I liked City of Bones and City of Glass enough to finish reading series. 2 & 3 were hard to enjoy. I don't want to spoil incase anyone else is reading them but the relationship between the jace and clarry just freaked me out. Even though I was sure it was a lie it grossed me out just enough to not enjoy 2 & 3 lol

    It was a little weird. The 4th book is pulling me in now...... but did NOT like what Simon did to the girl!! I'm not happy about that.

    Took me forever to find this thread!

    I just finished The Hunger Games Series......yes I am way behind the times I just didn't think I would enjoy them, its not really the kind of book I usually read. But, I loved them! Read all 3 books in less than 4 days

    Did any of you ladies read the 50 Shades Series? If you did what did you think of it? I know its a bit of a hot topic for some ppl!

    I read it, mostly to shut my sister up! I didn't love them but found the books oddly addictive....I think I kept reading it just to see how bad it could really get! The writing wasn't great, or so I thought.

    Also, once I start a book/series I have to finish it no matter how bad it is

    I have not, and probably won't. I've heard they are horribly written, lots of repeat lines and phrases..... I HATE that.

    Glad you enjoyed the Hunger Games..... going to rent to first movie this weekend. Can't wait.

    I read the 50 Shades trilogy just to see what the fuss was about... they were good I think. I am a HUGE Twilight fan and it was very evident to me that the books started as a Twilight fan fic. The writing, imo and not meant as a bash, really wasn't great. A LOT of repeated lines and it seemed to be written at a high school level. Nothing like the Hunger Games. But if you can get thru the writing I thought it wasn't that bad.

    I also like to finish a book/series when I start it or else I probably would've quit after a couple chapters.

    LOVED the Hunger Games books. Team Peeta all the way!! I'm reading the books again for my English 102 class. Love it just as much as the first time. I liked the movie too, though they left out a lot. I'm curious to hear what you think of the move Jane.

    How did I miss this thread? I love to read!

    If anyone likes true crime books, I recommend One Last Kiss by Michael Cuneo. This is about a husband/father who killed his wife and 2 sons to be with his mistress. It was hard for me to read because it happened in a small rural community very close to where I live.
