You may have thought that I forgot all about my Ladies Book Club posts! Oh no, not the case. We have just been simply absorbed in the world of the Hunger Games. I thought it would be much easier to do a "wrap up" post rather than "review" each book.
Let's face it. Hunger Games rocks but I'm done with it, okay. I read the first two books years ago when they came out. When Mockingjay came out much later I was not as enthralled to "catch up" and read it. I was happy that my group of ladies wanted to read the first one. I could vaguely remember what happened. But then the fever struck. They needed to finish them all!!! No problems really but I wasn't as enthusiastic as the others. I skimmed through Mockingjay and read the ending. I sat and listened to how it all turned out during the discussion and turns out had a great time being a part of the fun. Okay, okay, I give in. We made a plan to see the movie together and did just a few weeks ago. It was AMAZING! Really well done and so much better had I read the book.
This is not an official book club post since it covers three months but, no worries, lots of wine and chocolate were consumed and heated discussion was had. We seem to have a core group of us that make it every month which is lovely. They always come ready to chat and give their two cents.
Overall, these were fun books to read especially during the crazy time when it seems EVERYONE is reading it now. My bookstore certainly is selling them like hotcakes. Book clubs are fun to be a part of no matter what you read. I just love getting together and talking about books!
