The Hunger Games

If you haven’t heard of The Hunger Games by now, it is part of a highly popularized book series by author Suzanne Collins and has been on the New York Times Best Sellers list, as well as becoming one of the “must see” movies in theaters recently. My sister and I wanted to read the book before we saw the movie, and quite frankly, neither the text nor the film disappointed. We each had our own book to read and finished it within a few days. The story line was very original and refreshing. I highly recommend buying the books and reading them together with a sibling or between mother and child; not only does it encourage reading but it is something nice to do together.
