And May the Odds Ever Be In Your Favor...

I finally joined humanity! Yes, I sat my butt down and finished the Hunger Games trilogy this past week. And let me just say, I don't know what I was waiting for. Like seriously, Ashley, you needed to get with the program a lot sooner!

My bestest friend from college told me about this trilogy and even gave me all three kindle books. When she told me what it was about I was kind of skeptic. I was like I'm not really into the dystopia type of books, especially where people fight and kill each other. {Not exactly sure what I was thinking there, some of my favorite books are Jason Bourne books where he kills people, call me ironic} But after being super skeptic for about a year I finally decided to read it after watching the movie twice and thinking, "hey this is pretty good"

Even after reading The Hunger Games this past March it took me a while to read Catching Fire and Mockingjay. Yeah, I'm a little stubborn sometimes. BUT I loved the books.

During each book I had extremely different feelings though. Like especially who Katniss had feelings for. The Hunger Games I wanted Katniss and Gale to be together, Catching Fire I wanted her to be with Peeta and in the Mockingjay I was just all sorts of confused and didn't know who I wanted her to be with.

My friend and I both agreed that we weren't exactly happy with the final ending. We were very, very upset about Prim at the very end. {In case you are like me and still haven't read I don't want to give it away a major part of the ending.} We didn't like that at all. And I was a little shocked about President Snow and President Coin. But other than that I loved the books. I might be kind of into dystopia after all.

  1. I love these books, I couldn't put them down!

  2. I LOVE the books, but I agree about the ending. My theory is, the author wanted it to be four books but the publishers pushed for a trilogy. Because the last half of the third book felt really rushed and underdeveloped compared to the rest of the story.

  3. I LOVE these books, and I'm teaching the first one to my 8th graders right now... love it! :)

  4. Great books! I've heard Delirium and Matched are also great trilogies that follow along the same guidelines!
