"Book Review: THE HUNGER GAMES TRILOGY," by Aimee.
The Hunger Games trilogy was introduced to me by a now infamous seventh grade student of mine whose taste in books I will forever respect and appreciate. After reading the trilogy, and due to an annual Christmas present tradition begun by my parents of gifting books, (my mother is a Children's Librarian) I then bought a copy of The Hunger Games for my brother Nate for Christmas, knowing he would love the series if he would get into them, but was tickled and surprised when his lovely fiancée Beth called me to berate me for not getting him numbers two (Catching Fire) and three (Mockingjay) because she hadn't put it down all night as well. When this same addiction story was shared by my friends Dan, Carlen and Sarah, all trusted literature afficianados whose opinions I also trust I realized: this is bigger than Twilight. Especially when Stephenie Meyer herself admits that she was reading these books under the table while out to eat at a restaurant! So be warned: fire is catching.
There are a few blogs worth visiting for information about the upcoming movie: firstly, my favorite: http://hungergamesmovie.org/ which is hosted by the same author of the Breaking Dawn blog I've been reading for years now and previously the other Twilight movie blogs, and also http://mockingjay.net/.
