Hey Lovelies, I hope your day has treated you well and you enjoy your weekend. I am here with a book review which i read during The Reading Rush.
Just a reminder about how i rate my reading now….. I do not rate it, i more say how i feel and that is all. Which this is the second time i am doing it this way and well i can not be more excited i feel like i can really take in a book without having to worry about the rating system.
WINNING MEANS FAME AND FORTUNE.
LOSING MEANS CERTAIN DEATH.
THE HUNGER GAMES HAVE BEGUN. . . .
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and once girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.
Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weight survival against humanity and life against love.
I recently read, when I say recent I mean last month The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I was very nervous about not liking the book, I have read a few books after watching the movies mostly because I have not realized that the book was out and most the time when I watched the movies it was before I got really into reading. What I’m trying to say is the books I read after watching the movies I have always disliked or not liking as much.
This book however I’m extremely happy for, it matched the movie so much to the point I would reminisce the scenes as I went along and read.
The world building was fantastic, so much content was packed into this book but it was a slow and engaging read.
I’ve heard you should choose either team gale or team peeta but personally I wanna go with team no one, Katniss is so much better on her own. She is truly strong!
“I am not pretty. I am not beautiful. I am as radiant as the sun.”
One of the best parts has to be when Katniss teams up with Rue and they decide to blow up the supplies, which also gives Katniss a bit of a wound with her one ear so it’s hard for her to hear.
The part with Rue was hard, watching and reading I cried each time. Which is why we shall not talk anymore about it now.
However there is another death but more gruesome, more horrific I forgot how far it went in the movie.
I think that the action, the pacing and the emotion of this book holds up and I can not wait to start book two.
“Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor.”
