I am so excited for this new part of the blog. This is where I will be posting actual book recs. I read books just as much as I read fan fiction, so here we go. I know a lot of you have or are reading this book currently. So I'm so excited to post this. The first book I will be reviewing is....
I am appsolutly in love with this book. I can't put it down. I am reading it right now with my boyfriend, that's right I am reading with my boyfriend. I am so lucky to have a guy that loves reading as much as I do.
But anyway back to this amazing book. It is writen by Suzanne Collins. This book is the first of three that complete this series. It introduces a girl named Katniss Everdeen, who lives in a world not like ours. It is a world that is sectioned off into different zones. The main power is the Capital, a place where the main government is in charge and reigns over everyone.
Once a year they hold a event where the Capital chooses one boy and one girl from each of these districts to actually fight to the death. They have these 'Games' to demonstrate the Capital's power over each and everyone of them even their children.
Katniss is the girl that volunteers to be District 12's chosen girl, she volunteered after her little sisters name was called. I loved this part of the book, I dont want to give it away really, so you will have to read it, but it shows just how much she loves her sister and the bond between siblings.
When I wake up, the other side of the bed is cold. My fingers stretch out, seeking Prim's warmth but finding only the rough canvas cover of the mattress. She must have had bad dreams and climbed in with our mother. Of course, she did.
This is the day of the reaping.
All through the book we get to follow Katines journey to the capital and her journey through the games. Will she be the last one standing or will she die a death that is televised through out the districts?
We also get to meet a boy from District 12 named Peeta Mellark who could be an ally
or a traitor for Katiness.
I love the suspense this book creates, I hate when I'm reading and I have to get to bed but really want to just keep reading. I srsly have to make myself climb into bed and turn out the lights.
If you haven't read this amazing book I implore you pick up a copy and start it today, you wont be disappointed trust me. I'm on chapter 13 right now and I'm dying to know what happens next but I wanted to let you all know about it first.
Like I said this is the first book of three. The Hunger Games,Catching Fire, and MockingJay is the books to read right away.
I hope you enjoyed your time reading a different kind of Rec. Remember reading a book or fan fiction, you get to step away from real life for just a bit and step into a totally different world. Enjoy your reading and I hope you all have a good day. I will be back soon with another posting from Ali's Book Shelf.
