Book Review(s)

I was in a little bit of a reading slump earlier this year (which means January & February). But I think I've pulled out of it with some good reading in March.

My two favorite books from this month? Easy to name . . .

1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

This book has the feel of The Running Man (Arnold Schwarzenegger movie) combined with City of Ember.

I could not put this down! And I know other's have felt the same, since it is burning it's way through the ward.

Josh also managed to read this book pretty quickly -- taking it away as punishment worked like a friggin' charm! (He's on to Fablehaven #4 - and that's gonna work well too. Also, Fablehaven #4 was AWESOME too)

(Suzanne Collins also wrote the Gregor the Overlander series we I liked too).

2. The Non Runner's Marathon Guide For Women

I think this author wrote about my half-marathon experience -- I have never laughed so hard!! I LOVE sarcasm and wit and this book had a ton.

I drove poor Jeff NUTS with passages from the book regarding boob chaffing, water hydration and unhelpful encouragement from supporters at mile 4 (Mile 3 for me).

I seriously might be motivated enough to give a marathon a try. If you're even thinking of a 5K, 10K, half or full marathon you should give this book a try!

I still have a stack of books lined up next to my bed even with all my reading this month.

Do you want to suggest a book that should move to the top of the stack?
