I know many people are torn on The Hunger Games series. On the one hand it is incredibly well written and intriguing. On the other hand, it is violent and shows children killing each other. Despite the deaths of children in the books, I love the series. I love the message that Suzanne Collins sends that war is not a good thing.
In my last blog post for the day (as I plan on just spending the rest of the night reading) let me tell you what I love about the Hunger Games:
1. Like Rowling, Collins has strong women characters in her stories. She isn't afraid to have Katniss kick ass!
2. Gayle. He's amazing!
3. Cinna. I love Cinna.
Again, I could go on and on about things I like about this book. I am, however, anxious to get back to my reading. So, in closing, I will leave you with a quote from Mocingjay that I think is a perfect way to describe the readathon:
"So, after then, he whispers, "You love me, real or not real?
I tell him, "Real."
Enjoy the rest of the read-a-thon! I'll catch you all on the flipside!
