I can't wait to read them all! In fact, this evening I've finished The Hunger Games. Wow! Amazing. Stinkin' cliff hanger though so I hope that means this is a series and there's more to come. (It did say "End of Book One" at the end... that's a pretty good clue, right?) I didn't realize it was, so now I'm hoping. I need to read four more books to get to the year end 100 mark. It's possible, but not probable. I should be reading right now instead of playing on the computer. But I needed to blog something!


  1. I just finished Hunger Games yesterday. It was under the tree for me too. :) So good!!

  2. Quite the haul! I didn't get any books at all! Maybe I'll do my Sunday Salon on what the boys got.

  3. Wow, every one of you did pretty well in the book department. Happy Reading and relaxation.
