Quick Post on what I have read recently

It has been forever since I have posted about books I have read. I am not going to go all the way back to where  I last posted about books, but will tell you the last few I have read. All of them I highly recommend!

Currently I am reading the second book(Catching Fire) in the Hunger Games series.

I just read Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins... I read it super fast and now Gabby is reading it. This series is set in the future and are all about the control of the government over the people. The main character is a teenage girl so it appeals to all ages.  I am not into sci-fi or futureistic things at all by the way.  
The movie is out soon... 

Before that I read Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay- this book was great also.  Sad but very interesting. It is all about occupied France during the war. I Love historical fiction and this was a good one! Chad read it and enjoyed it too. The movie is out for this one, so I will be watching that soon

Before that was Sea Glass by Anita Shreve.. Loved this one too!  It is set on the east coast during the depression.  I got this book at the library book sale for 1$ and bought it because I liked the title and the picture on the cover.... Yep, I judged the book by the cover... but it ended up being a great pick. Chad read this one also and liked it too.

If you have any recommendations send them to me!

I just started the 3rd Hunger Games book last night! I think it's nice that Chad reads the same books as you!

I'm on the 2nd book too! They are hard to put down. My middle one has read them all. My oldest and I are reading them together. I think I might try to go to the movies this weekend.

My book club is doing Sarah's Key this month. I actually listened to the audio book awhile back. It was good but sad.

I have Sea Glass on my to read list. I've read/listened to a lot of Anita Shreve's books, they are pretty good for the most part!
