So I have read a few good books this summer that I wanted to share.

First of all, if you haven’t read The Hunger Games….Read it! It is a GREAT book that will have you staying up late to see what will happen next. It is about a teenage girl in a futuristic North America, forced by the government to compete against fellow teenagers in a battle to the death.  Sounds disturbing, but it is amazing.

Then read the sequel, Catching Fire, which came out last month. But be warned…the ending is a cliff-hanger that leaves you wanting more.

Finally, The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo is a book I read for my book club. It is something I never would have picked on my own, so it was interesting to read something so different from my typical choices. It is a murder mystery set in Sweden. The first 100 pages are slow, but stick with it! It is fascinating to learn about Sweden and get a whole new cultural perspective.

Happy Reading!

  1. I really liked Hunger Games… now I must read Catching Fire. You’re so much better at sticking to your reading habit than I am :)
