Obsessed . . .

On Tuesday I read The Hunger Games . . .  yesterday I read the second in the trilogy -- Catching Fire.

 I am hooked -- possibly obsessed. This is some amazing story telling. And this is why I've not come blog visiting -- well, this and the class I had to meet Wednesday night. 

First Downton Abbey -- now  The Hunger Games.  Is it possible that I have an addictive personality?

I'll give a full report after I've read the third book... but now I have to get back to the story.

Aren't we all, I mean your blog followers, a little on the addictive personality side when it comes to reading? I am.

If I took the time to read books, I'd never make it to blog reading and I'd get so far behind, I'd freak. I guess that, in itself, makes me a freak.

I've read good reviews for the Suzanne Collins books. They've been on my list for a while, but who knows when I'll find the time for them? I'm such a slow reader.

Thérèse said...

Sounds like a great read and reminds me of my own addiction right now for the Orwell's kind of books written by J.F. Rufin.

When I heard about parts of the movie being filmed in the Asheville area, I looked went to Amazon to read about the books and was immediately hooked. Yes, I read them all in record time and really thought they were some of the best books I'd read.

I finished CATCHING FIRE in the wee hours of the morning -- on to MOCKINGJAY! Boy, I'm glad I didn't begin this series when the first book came out -- having to wait a year between books would be painful.

Fortunately, I'm a very fast reader...

I've heard about the Rufin books, Therese -- will have a look.

i have just got the first of these...with the announcement of the movie and after all the good reviews i decided it was time...maybe i need to go get the others before i get started in case it happens to me too...smiles.

You know in Downton when Matthew got into the fight with Mary's fiance and they were rolling on the furniture throwing each other around, I was going Come On, he had a spinal cord injury!

Kristen Haskell said...

Oh that is exactly what happened to me. I read all three and couldn't put them down. Movie coming out next month. Looking forward to reading your review.

Dear Vicki: Wanted to say Happy Birthday all year long and yes I love the addicts as I am one~ Want to read this one now...got me hooked....like the feeling~

Vicki Lane said...

Helen -- yeah, but this IS a soap opera -- just with better sets and clothes. The evil twin may yet appear... not to mention the long-lost heir...and, dare I say it, vampires or zombies. I still love it.

Mel said...

Enjoy! I had the same response, read them in a weekend marathon. Be warned - there is a bit of withdrawal when you run out of books!

Pat in east TN said...

I agree with Mel. When you're done reading them all you're kind of let down and it took me a while before I could get into another book.

Star said...

I'll be interested in reading your comments when you've finished them. I haven't read them, nor intended to, but maybe if you whet my appetite somewhat, I just might indulge...?

Friko said...

Never heard of it or them.
But I've just finished 'The Help' almost in one sitting.
Fantastic!

"The Hunger Games" is a great series. I'd wanted to read it for some time and got all three books for Christmas. I can't wait to see the movie based on the first book.

Susan M. Bell said...

Dang, you really are a fast reader. I loved that series. Was a bit upset the way it ended, but a writer definitely can't please all the readers out there. Can't wait to see the movie.

And Downton Abbey is on my Netflix Instant list. Well, the first season is anyway. I reckon I really need to get that watched as the second season is on the PBS site for a limited time, and I'd really like to catch up with the show since I've heard so much about it.
