If you haven't already...

Book(s) of the Week

If you haven't read the Hunger Games Trilogy then you're missing out.  This is a young-adult adventure science fiction series written by Suzanne Collins.  A friend recommended this series to me a while back and I finally finished it the other day.  At first I was a bit hesitant because it was listed under young-adult section, but after awhile I said "To heck with it I consider myself a young adult".  The books follow the trials and tribulations of Katniss Everdeen and and her friends in a violent competition where every step and turn could mean sudden death.  The book takes place sometime in the far future, where North America has been destroyed, in a place known as Panem that is split into 12 districts.  As a means of punishment from a past rebellion each district must offer 1 male and 1 female volunteer to take part in the Hunger Games.  The Hunger Games is an elaborate competition where there can only be one victor/survivor...I know, I make it sound cheesy, but seriously, check these books out!
