Where have I been?

It has been a little lonely around here these days, hasn’t it?! Well… here’s why:

I have been reading „The Hunger Games„, called „Die Tribute von Panem “ in german. I’ve seen several bloggers going crazy about this trilogy but never thought I would like it. I’ve cross-read it a few times at the book store and didn’t get the „I need to read it now“ vibe at all. So I put it on my christmas wishlist.

And then the Mr. got it for me as a christmas gift.

I love the box set – it’s so pretty and even the Mr. says it looks gorgeous on my book shelf. I started reading the book series 4 days ago on New Year’s. And I have finished the first two books already and am 1/4 through the third one.

So what is it about these books?

Well – they might be teenage reads. But (like Twilight and Harry Potter) they are not only for teenagers. For sure! What I like about these books is that they are also socially critical.

It is a story about the Land of Panem that’s our world in the future. There are 13 districts – the 13th had been destroyed once and to warn all the inhabitants of Panem that there should never again be war (which means they should not lean against the government / capitol) each year the HUNGER GAMES take place. 2 children of each district (12 – 18 years old) will randomly be chosen to fight in a arena until only ONE survives. It’s unfair and bloody and cruel.

I don’t want to share more about the books because I want you to read them. NOW!

What I mostly love about this book series is that there will be a movie! YES! I like when book characters come to life. It will start March 23 here in Germany. I am already stoked!

Here’s the official Trailer:

 

Oh my, oh my!
I am now going to continue reading book 3 in bed. These books cost a loooot of sleep. Ha 🙂

Are you infected as well?! If so, let’s talk about the books ❤

Love yous,

  1. I have been infected by The Hunger Games in a bad way! I cannot wait to see the movie!! I absolutely love the books! I did the first 2 books from Audible and after Christmas I got it for my tablet and after I finished reading it I went out and bought them in hard back so I could have them forever!!

  2. I got the trilogy for Christmas, too, and I fell in love with the series. I just started the third book! Can’t wait to see the movie!

  3. huhu einen tollen blog hast du 🙂
    ich freu mich auch schon totaaaaal auf den film ^____^

  4. It’s funny, I just read the first two books, (I borrowed them from a friend) and just like you, I didn’t really think I would like them, from what I had heard. And now I am totally hooked! So looking forward to the movie!

  5. Oh boy, I wanted to read the Panem-Trilogy for 8 months or so, but I always forgot to buy it.
    Thanks for the reminder 🙂
