What We (the TBD BC) read this month

First, I joined The Benner Daily Bookclub. Posted about it here

2nd, this month we read 3 books. Of the first two and its sequel

I definately prefered The Hunger Games. These books are worth your time. Very intriguing, very fast reads. Katniss is a great main character with many strong supporting characters as well.
Can you imagine being in an arena with 24 other people- and knowing only 1 of you is getting out alive?
Can you imagine that drawing names like a lottery to see who will be in the arena is what your country forces people to every year to remind you of your past rebellion?
Can you imagine needing food to survive so badly that you allow your 12-18 year old children to put additional chances in the lottery just so you can survive?


Now you wanna read these books, don't you?

The last read of the month Vampire Academy I finished yesterday. It's the first in a series with the 5th one coming out May 18th 2010 and the 6th one late 2010 according to her website.
I read this one is a day too- quick, interesting, not clean enough for my teenage nieces, but a good read. I'm planning on reading the whole series (work with me library . . .)
It's a pretty complicated world author Richelle Mead has created. From the site "Two races of vampires walk our world. One, the Moroi, are alive and wield elemental magical. The other, the Strigoi, are undead and evil--feeding on the innocent to survive. Rose Hathaway--a half-vampire with poor impulse control--is training to be a bodyguard for a Moroi princess. Learning to decapitate and stake is hard enough, but Rose's real danger may lie in an illicit romance with one of her instructors..."

Read these books- or if you already have, let me know what you think. And if you want ot join TBD's bookclub- I'm sure she'd still have you- even if she is Team Gale not Team Peeta:)

Loved Hunger Games and Catching Fire, although definitely Hunger Games was more exciting. But Catching Fire was still enjoyable, although parts of it predictable, and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series to come out.
