In anticipation of The Hunger Games hitting theaters later this month I decided to re-read the novel. I didn’t think it was possible, but I believe I love the book even more today than I did the first time I read it.
Hunger Games is a young adult novel, but can be loved by people of all ages. The book has a premise that shocked me when I first read it. Especially when I considered the intended audience.
The idea that a society would have pit their children against one another in a fight to the death for the sake of pure entertainment is horrifying. Of course, as you read the novel you realize that there is more than meets the eye.
To say I’m excited about the upcoming film is an understatement, though I can’t say that I’ve always felt this way. When I first heard they were adapting the book into a full-length feature film, my first thought was probably the same as that of other lovers of The Hunger Games series – dread. I dreaded that a book I loved so dearly would be ruined once it hit the silver screen. I was even more disappointed when I learned who was cast, since none of my wish list made the cut. Then I saw the trailer. From what I’ve seen Suzanne Collins’ masterpiece will be just as amazing as I envisioned.

I haven’t made up my mind yet which book I plan to read next. Should I finish The Hunger Games series again, or pick up one of my many other series? Should I read some of the other books on my to-read list? Don’t know yet. So many books to read. So little time.
