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 :D
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. :D
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. :)
I will let you know! I'm team Peta all the way! :D
