Since I found out that the movie was filmed here in NC, I was curious about this book. We ran over to Walmart last week and I picked up this book. It is a young adult novel about a 16 year old girl named Katniss. In the country Katniss lives in is divided in 12 districts. Every year, one boy and one girl are chosen from each district to fight to the death for entertainment. The child that wins is given a house and food for life. Almost everyone is starving in this country. Katniss hunts as a way to sustain her family. This becomes an advantage in The Hunger Games.
I recommend this book.
I chose this next book because a friend was reading another of her books. I don't know if I liked this book. At first it was very confusing for me. I just could not follow the story. But I kept reading, waiting for it to get better and when it did it was over. Here's a link for another review.
The other day we ran into CVS to pick up something and they had their books on sale for 1/2 off. So I saw a James Patterson and got it. This is another young adult book, which is ok but I wish it had said that on the cover. It is an exciting story about 2 kids, Wisty and Whit, that are arrested and sentenced for execution for being witched. They don't know they have power until this happens. But just as the story gets going the book ends, which really disappointed me.
