Tuesday Tomes: Hunger Games

BooksMegan PeronaComment

Hello there! Have you read The Hunger Games yet?  Zena, one of our wonderful employees, absolutely loved it.  She read the whole first book in one day, and loved it so much she read half the second book the next day!  According to her, "These are more addicting than Harry Potter."  Check out her review below:


The Hunger Games are annual fights to the death on live TV between 24 boys and girls from across the land. When her sister’s name is pulled, Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her place, becoming a contender in the games. While most consider participating as good as the death sentence, Katniss has a natural instinct for survival and is determined to see her sister again. Brilliantly paced and full of suspense, this book finds situations that must weigh humanity against survival and life against love.

Written by Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games is a thrilling read for ages 12+.

This is the first in a series, and a movie version just came out!

Have an awesome day!!!
