I will crawl, there's things that are worth giving up I know; but I won't let this get me, I will fight. You live the life you're given with the storms outside. Somedays all I do is watch the sky.

user picture sam: I loved the Hunger Games trilogy too! Sad to see it end :( feb 4 2011
user picture larissa: I just finished it. So good! I am sad that I finished it in a week, though. But I'll definitely be reading it again. feb 8 2011
user picture sam: I finished with them back in August (2010) - but still think about them. Will definitely re-read in the future. Have you read/heard of The Maze Runner and/or The Scorch Trails by James Dashner? Enjoyed those too - set in a fight for your life kind of thing like the Hunger Games, but also unique in its own way. feb 12 2011
user picture larissa: I haven't! I will def check those out! thanks. I downloaded the sample of "Matched" by Ally Condie but I think it's too similar to Hunger Games. The main character's name is Cassia and they live in "The Society" and it was just very similar. But, every good book will be copied in some way or another. jun 3 2011
user picture Elaine: How was House Rules?! It's sitting on my shelf waiting to be read but I haven't made it there yet! I love Jodi Picoult though! I have almost all of her books. may 22 2011
user picture larissa: I. Loved. House. Rules. SOOOOO insanely much. You know how you can underline and make notes in the Kindle, pretty much the entire book is underlined. I couldn't get over how great she is at telling stories. I don't have very many of her books but I'm going on a JP binge and reading all of them I think. =] jun 3 2011
