Up Late Reading The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games by Suzanne CollinsBoth my teenage daughters are so into The Hunger Games trilogy of books and kept bugging me to read the first book. I finally agreed after putting it off for far too long. I started this week and ended up reading from 9:30 p.m. Friday night until almost 2 a.m. Saturday morning to finish it up. And I must admit, not many books would keep me up that late (or early) to finish reading! I really enjoyed the story, it was an easy read for me. I think the concept of pairing a reality show theme with politics is brilliant. Since I’m a big fan of the Survivor reality show, I got into The Hunger Games in the same kind of way. My daughters and I now await the movie release of The Hunger Games, set for March 23, 2012. I guess I’m gonna have to find some time to read the second and third book in the series too, but I need to catch up on my sleep first!

Check out this movie trailor for The Hunger Games, good stuff! Have you read this book? Are you looking forward to the movie?
