The Hunger Games Trilogy, Very Valentine | Book Reviews

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

The amount of books I'm reading is directly proportionate to how much I ignore my site. As you can probably tell, I've been reading A LOT. I seem to have really good reading juju because it's been awhile since I've picked up a book that sucked. (and with that, I just jinxed myself)

These are the books I've read over the last three weeks:

Brava, Valentine: A NovelThe Hunger Games
Catching Fire (The Second Book of the Hunger Games)Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games)

I loved all of them!

I've read all of Adriana Trigiani's books except for her essays and young adult titles. I love her writing style, her characters and how all her books are about the importance of family. Brava, Valentine is the second book with Valentine Roncalli as the main character. The Roncalli family business is custom made shoes. How could I not like the books?

If you have not heard of the Hunger Games series, I'm not sure we can be friends anymore. I take that back. If you say you did not enjoy the Hunger Game, *then* we can't be friends. I know the premise of the books sounds bad; kids from a futuristic dystopian society forced to fight to the death; but that part of the series kind of takes a backseat to the love story, political unrest, family and friendship. At least it did for me. I cannot wait for the movie!

What are you reading? What should I add to my shelf on GoodReads?

  1. i just finished the hunger games trilogy yesterday and it was awesome! i'm reading water for elephants next.

  2. @Carrie - I loved Water for Elephants! I'm looking forward to the movie but I have a feeling it won't be nearly as good as the book.

  3. Hunger Game Movies-how have I not heard about this yet? Oh- I'm so excited.

  4. Loved The Hunger Games trilogy. Fabulous books - so glad we can still be friends.

  5. @Julia - Yes! It was huge news when they announced who will play Katniss. I think all the major roles are cast except Haymitch. I'm dying to know!

    @Carolyn - LOL!

  6. I did a whole post on Hunger Games I loved it so much. I'm reading the Krakauer book about Pat Tillman. Excellent.
