The Hunger Games

I love to find a good book. I love to read. I love to get so pulled into a story that I dream about the characters. When I get into reading mode I ignore kids, pets, phones, housework, thoughts of dinner. Basically the entire world around me. I found this book. Actually this book found me with help from Tiffany and book club.

They read it last month. I am on catch-up mode. I started it last night and finished it today. I loved it! I could not put it down. I was up to late last night, wanted to skip work this morning, ignored family. I was completely drawn in. I cannot wait to read the next book! If you haven't read it..do. Louise...Lori..anyone else who wants a good read..this book needs to be in your future.

When I read the post title I thought it was going to be about the Biggest Loser competition at your gym. :) I'll make a note of it, I am always looking for a good read. I just finished Marley and Me and bawled my eyes out at the end. And I don't even really like dogs.

I've heard good things about that book. I've been helping Justin read "City of Ember" for his book report. I've only read a few of the chapters to help him get through faster so I've missed most of it. But what I've read I like.

I'll have to look into that.

Thanks for the book reccomendation. I will definitely check it out. I read City of Ember a while back - and it is pretty good.

By the way, I am still giggling whenever I think of Andrew replanting the flowers when they were in the shade. Hilarious.

I miss you, Cynthia and Amy! Do we really have to wait until next year for a girls' weekend? OK, so I can't afford one anytime soon, but I wish...
