Whilst talking to some blogger friends recently I realised that I have a terrible habit of starting a series and never finishing it! I don’t know why this is but I seem to do it a lot and I thought I’d share some of them with you over the next couple of weeks so you can all shout at me and tell me why I need to finish them!
The Hunger Games – Susanne Collins
Im gunna get really shouted at for this. I bought the first one with a voucher my mother-in-law gave me for Christmas in 2010. I read it (review) pretty soon after I bought it and enjoyed it but there were some things that I didn’t love as much as I thought I would. I think its because of the hype to be honest so I was hoping it would die down. However the movie jsut come out and the hype hasn’t died down adn Im still second and third book-less! I need to get to these ones and thankfully I gave a friend my copy of The Hunger Games and she bought the second and third as soon as she finished it, so i’m borrowing them off her soon!
I adored this series when I was a teen. I zoomed through the first two and then bought the third on release day and read that. Then, when I was 19 the fourth book came out. I had recently decided that I was too old to read YA and didnt want to re-read the series to remind myself of it just to read the fourth book… so it’s been sat there on my shelf for four years now… unread. Poor Double Cross!!
I read the first two of these books when I was younger… I can’t quite remember when but I have them both in hardback so I think they were bought when they were published in 2002 and 2003 respectively and I read them soon after. I recently re-read the first book, City of Masks (review) and I enjoyed it but I didn’t love it enough to jump into City of Stars. I haven’t even begun to look at the rest of the series yet and I don’t know if I will as the 6thone is due out soon!
