Book Club Friday

After the last book review rant, I'm happy to be linking up with Heather's Book Club on a positive note.

This week I'm reviewing:

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. 
Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

Good reads

I loved this book! YA or not, it was the perfect change from the last book I read. It was fast-paced, entertaining and well-written. Yes, this book actually had grammar. What I liked most was that despite its youth-based fictional story, the dystopian undertones were very mature and easily paralleled to reality. I don't want to give much away so go read it!!


  1. I seriously must be the only person left who hasn't read this book!! haha
