I know I shouldn't have time for things like this, but you think I'm going to read a treaties at 3am while feeding Z. Get real!
Hunger Games is the story of the world post-some unknown calamity where the all-powerful capital of a 12-District-based-former-US society, forces a boy and a girl from each district to fight to the death each year in the...ta-da Hunger Games. I started with the first book on my Kindle app on my ipod touch. I chewed through the trilogy in about a week. It's a lot of sleepless nights I know. It's a young adult series, but I found it compelling. Plus it's a little bloody for youngins. Thank goodness I could buy it online and not have to go to a bookstore and pretend I'm looking for it for my younger sisters (like I usually do for my junk food books :P)
The characters are kickass! I only wish I have the ridiculous survival and archery skills of the main protagonist Katniss. They are turning it into a movie and I hope they don't screw it up. It's so much better than Twilight (although I read all of those too), in that Katniss is strong, while conflicted about two strong men in her life, doesn't let this rule her life and she's not afraid to take everything into her own hands. Wish there were more books and I might start re-reading them when Z wakes up tonight.
