I'm a nerd in disguise. There, I said it, and now everybody knows it. No matter how much mascara I wear, how inappropriate I can be or how many friends I have... There's a nerd living somewhere deep, down inside me. Hm... Let me try that again without being inappropriate. Told you. I AM A NERD AT HEART. I get excited about things like filling out worksheets, reading chapters in my textbooks (only the interesting ones of course, I'm not that hardcore of a nerd), and most of all, a good book. When I find a book that captivates me, good luck prying it from my fingers! I will read & read & read 'till the very end, and nothing can stop me!
I hate to hop on the bandwagon like every other teenaged girl in America, but... I love the Hunger Games. This book is great. No, this book is amazing. Hands down one of my new favorites. One friend of mine scoffs and turns up her nose every time I so much as mention the book's title, and her reasoning behind it was this: "Too many people are obsessed with it, it's too popular."
Now don't get me wrong, I understand what she's saying. Before I picked up this lovely novel, I'd constantly hear people chatting about the movie and obsessing over the characters. Hunger Games this, Hunger Games that, blah blah blah! The hype can get pretty annoying. However, I would never let the fact that tons of people love the book stop me from reading it. Who gives a shit, honestly? People are obsessing over the Hunger Games for a damn good reason--because it's an amazing, well-written, captivating book. I'm not going to pretend I don't like it simply because it's now a "hop on the bandwagon" thing. If I enjoy reading the book myself, that should be all that matters.
That being said, I'd like to recommend this wonderful book to ALL of you! Yes, all 60-70 of you that have been reading my blog a day. (More about that later!) Forget about the hype. Pick up this book and give it a chance. I did, and I've been hopelessly addicted ever since!
