The Hunger Games Trilogy
I kept hearing about this trilogy and I even tried to read it in February, but was not in the appropriate head space. I borrowed the books from a friend and was instantly hooked. The love story is beautiful, but more than that is the frightening world that Collins creates. It's definite must-read.
Persuasion was the one Jane Austen novel I hadn't read yet and I'm glad that I finally picked it up. Anne is very likeable and it fills me with the warm and fuzzies. Austen's wit is spot on as usual and its definitely a book that everyone should read.
I really loved this novel. The movie was good, but it lacked the emotional punch that the book could deliver. I loved how it portrayed such delicate issues of race with tenderness and subtlelty.
