diner night was, as usual, pretty amazing. i also started book 2 of The Hunger Games which i’m sure i’ll finish sometime in the next few days if not tomorrow. and then i have to buy the 3rd one (the first two i got for free from a friend). honestly, not since harry potter has a book enthralled me so much that i can’t put it down. and this says a lot. i mean, i LOVED the millenium series (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, etc.), but young adult novels that are GOOD are so hard to come by nowadays. instead we get books like the twilight series (sorry for all those who like it, but… meh) which have quite a questionable writing style and unrealistic expectations of “teenage” love. i’m sorry, but edward was a stalker. The Hunger Games, while it changes tenses sometimes has a flow to it that is incredible. it literally had me on the edge of my seat the entire read. so far book two is even more enjoyable than the first as it delves into the politics of the districts and seems to be even a bit edgier. i highly recommend this book to anyone who has been disenchanted by young adult novels as of late and even to readers who don’t regularly read young adult novels. Absolutely phenomenal.
