the hunger games

via Google
I am still here in Hawaii having a great relaxing vacation.  It's been nice to be away from reality for a few days and this is actually the first time I have even turned on my computer since I landed!  It's been good to catch up on all of my daily blog reads and clean up some of my emails (e.g. things that don't take much thinking).

I finally finished reading The Help over the past few days (I started it back in September on my last beach vacation).  No, I am not THAT slow of a reader but it's hard for me to find any time to read when I am not on vacation.  During any down time, I just want to sit in front of the TV or sleep.  I have the movie ready to go on my iPad so I am planning to watch it on the plane ride back home.  Can't wait!

Anyway, back to what this blog post was all about in the first place...the HUNGER GAMES (the first of the trilogy)!  I started the book yesterday and already have that "can't put it down" feel.  I am hoping to finish it over this trip since it seems to be a relatively quick read and I want to watch the movie asap.  Have you read it?  What are your thoughts?

I will be back soon to share some pictures of my trip thus far!  I hope you had a good holiday!

Read this book and the rest of the series... and couldn't put any of them down. The whole time, I kept thinking, "This would be an awesome movie!" I'm so pumped that it's coming out in March! Enjoy!

Christina - I finished the 1st book and I loved it! I wish the movie was coming out sooner though. Farhan also read the first book and has already started the 2nd.
