The Hunger Games

I don't recommend a lot of books on here, because I haven't read a lot of books lately. I have a whole library of books I would recommend if I could, but those have been read between the ages of 9 and 22 and you probably don't want to hear my viewpoint on The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder, which I could talk about for hours. Lately, I haven't been into reading unless it involves a children's book.

However, Scott came home with this a few weeks ago. I've only seen him read a few books in the time we've been together, mostly because he's always been so busy. He burned through The Hunger Games in a weekend. I read it over the last week, and I would recommend it to anyone. We've since bought the rest of the trilogy and we spent out Saturday night sitting on the couch reading. Given that our church service today was about finding time to rest, resting with such amazing literature seems to be appropriate.

Yes, it's about starvation and killing and cruelness, and I'm sure it will be on banned book lists for years to come (and really now, those are always the best books to read), but if you let that stop you, you're missing out.
