“But the Hunger Games are their weapon and you are not supposed to be able to defeat it.”
Winning means fame and fortune.
Losing means certain death.
The Hunger Games have begun…
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and once girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.
Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

So without further ado, here is a decade of my reading…

But that’s because I made a resolution to myself that I need to finish all the completed series that I have on my shelf before diving into a new one; it’s because I may not finish the series if I did not push myself to read up to the last book.
But I have been watching BookTube A LOT. I’ve developed a habit lately of watching a video after I finish a chapter or two. But never, I mean NEVER have I heard ANYTHING about these books! Am I watching and following the wrong people? But…
