I'm pretty sure you knew that going in.

The Hunger Games trilogy is probably my favorite trilogy of all time

I actually didn't know anything about these books until I saw the preview for the movie adaptation of the first one when I went to see part one of Breaking Dawn. It's funny that that's how I ended up reading the first Twilight novel too. Seeing the previews of the adaptations led me to the novels since I never like to watch the movie first then read the novel.

Have you read the Twilight Sagwa? It's the last series that I really got into.

I read the first three. Didn't go any further than that though. I'm a HUGE Hunger Games fan, not so much with Twilight. I appreciate and respect what Stephanie Meyer did with it, it's just not my thing. I like evil vampires.

But yeah, The Hunger Games is pretty much the bomb

Yeah; I bought "My Life As An Experiment" mistakenly, thinking it was the one I saw him discussing on TV. I'll probably go back & get the others later in the year.

You should hate the books for taking place in the Twin Cities since Sandford pretty much portrays the area as the serial killer capital of the world.

Thats any mystery writer with a recurring character though. This is one of the safest major metro areas in the country.

Re: The "Book" thread.

Currently read: Omen Machine (T.Gookind) and not liking it
Favorite Authors : Robin Hobb, George RR Martin.
Books I'm looking forward to : Martin's last 2 books!
Favourite ever books : The Farseer Saga from RObin Hobb.

As for how much I read: every time I have a chance, seriously, I can't think of a life without books. I'm a slow reader thought, I enjoy every single word when i like a book and I don't care about ending it soon, and yes again, I would chose a book over a movie easily when i'm alone (a movie is better when you are with other people for obvious reasons ^^)
