Book 1 Done: The Hunger Games

So, I began the 48 Hour Book Challenge last night at 5:00pm by continuing a book I had already started: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. With just a little cat-nap or two, I finished the book at 10:30. The Hunger Games is a dystopian novel which had me turning the pages from the very first chapter. Sixteen-year-old Katniss takes the spot of her little sister in an annual, national game which pits young people against each other for a fight for survival. Katniss is tough and her hunting skills help her immensely throughout the Game, but she quickly learns that the Game also requires learning who to trust and how to "play" among human relationships. The book guarantees a sequel and I'll be the first in line!

After doing some catching up with what my fellow challengers are reading, I'm on to the next book: Paper Towns by John Green.

I'm glad to see someone else who has The Hunger Games on their list for the 48 hour book marathon. Sometimes with all the Catching Fire buzz in the blog-o-sphere, I feel like the only person who hasn't read it yet.
