Manic Monday: Moon Swept by Rebecca York & Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Each Monday (or the closest I can get to Monday) I will be posting a Past/Present/Future Reading Post called Manic Monday. Don't hate me if I post it on a Tuesday - it just indicates how "manic" my Monday really was! If you want to see more of what I have been reading, I try and update my Goodreads account with each book I am reading.
What I just finished reading
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Blurb from Goodreads:
Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with every one out to make sure you don't live to see the morning?
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 one 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, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, 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 will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
Why I picked it up: I had finished all my new books and needed something else to read. I had planned to reread it before I buy Mockingjay, the third installment in the trilogy.
Why I finished it: It is brilliant.
I'd give it to: Everyone

A Werewolf park ranger must keep his identity a secret, but when he comes across a bewitching biologist, he forgets everything but the lust coursing through his body. Until the pair comes face-to-face with pure evil...
A reformed delinquent werewolf falls for the beautiful daughter of his nemesis--and even though she's wary of this man's dark secrets, she cannot ignore the heat smoldering between them...
They couldn't be more perfect for each other. Now Rebecca York's WITCHING MOON and CRIMSON MOON, two of her acclaimed werewolf novels, come together in one exhilarating volume of suspense and sensuality--under the pale light of the moon...
What I am reading next
I have no idea. The girls on twitter gave me some great recommendations last night, so I have to sort through those. I also need to reread Catching Fire before I can read Mockingjay.
P.S. - Who do you think the best Paranormal Romance authors are?
