The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was a fun read and one that you couldn't put down, so I breezed through it. I loved the main character and that she was not a whimpy girl relying on others to save her. But I also loved that it didn't come across like a "girly" book. I think my son or my husband would enjoy this book.
When my friend first recommended it I was worried the story was a repeat of some bad movie I'd already seen, but it was not the case. I loved the story as a whole, but I'm thankful I don't live in that world. And my kid's and their friends are always asking me to recommend books and this is a great one for 12+ years old, but enjoyable enough for adults as well.
