I have a confession. I am not the biggest fan of The Hunger Games.
(don’t hate me)
Personally, I have been stuck in the middle of Catching Fire for… almost a year. It’s not a bad series, I just cannot for the life of me get into it.
Now, years ago when Catching Fire first came out, I loved the first book. It wasn’t the worlds greatest thing. It was alright. I liked it well enough to try and read the second book. As a matter of a fact, I believe I tried to read Catching Fire and couldn’t get through it.
Like I said before, it’s not a bad series and one day I do plan on reading the rest but…
I just do not see what all the hype is about. I see people going bonkers over it, while I am feeling I suppose the equivalent for other series. I really did prefer Divergent over it, and not in the catty fan girl way I see some people act. But, I will still be on my hunt for a real hardcover copy of the first book. (That is a story for another day.)
Maybe it’s just me, but I guess I just didn’t jump onto that hype train.
Even after being spoiled on Allegiant’s ending… I still want to read it more than the rest of the Hunger Games trilogy.
So while I am listening to the Mockingjay’s call on everyones cellphones and random quotes from the books, I will be here, ever erudite.
