Yes, I love YA fiction/fantasy/sci-fi. But you don't need to share that opinion to enjoy The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins. All you need is to be able to read. These books are fantastic. Yes, books is plural because it's a trilogy. A TRILOGY! AHHH I LOVE TRILOGIES!
As my friend Sarah put it - the books are like a reality show (think Survivor) meets Harry Potter meets The Handmaid's Tale.
I'm obsessed, and I've gotten all my roommates obsessed and am now working through all my friends.
READ THEM, people, READ THEM.
