These. books. are. SO. good! I read them both in 2 days -- couldn't put them down. My hubbers (who isn't really a reader) stayed up until 2 a.m. to finish one! You have to read them!
They are set in the future (which is not something I'm usually into...) but they're not to far-fetched or sciency. Anyway, the controlling government holds the "Hunger Games" each year to keep the people in their place. It's an amazing adventure of a girl named Katniss, a real survivor, who discovers who she is and how to trust and love. Ugh, that makes it sound all cheesy. I not good at this. But stop sitting there, and go get your hands on these books! ;)
***I can't believe I have to wait until August 24 for the third one to come out!***
