What are you currently reading?

Mockingjay (Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins.

I started reading this now that the second movie is coming out. I bought the set before I moved here in 2011, and after all the reviews of how it’s not as great as the other two, I put it aside. I still like Collins’s voice in the story. Aside from the whole bunch of characters that I have a hard time keeping up with, Katniss is a good, strong female. It’s not that I can really relate to her, it’s just written so I can feel as if I’m part of the story. That’s the kind of writing I think we all strive to create.

Also, I love how my phone wants to add “Collins” after I type out my name.

What did you recently finish reading?

Carrie by Stephen King

I still have to write my review for that, but heck, I still didn’t write my review for Divergent that I finished months ago.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I honestly have no idea what I’ll read next. I just pick up the ton of books I have and find one that catches my attention. I can say I’m going to read any number of books, but it will more than likely end up being something completely different.

Happy Reading and Happy Wednesday!

What are you currently reading?

I decided to read Carrie by Stephen King again for about the third time. It’s a great story, though I sort of don’t like the story as a historical account, but it makes sense. It needs that element of other people telling the story, so you can understand what Carrie’s going through. She’s not capable of explaining how weird her mother is because she has nothing else to compare it to. I’m almost finished. I put it down last night right as things were kicking off at the prom.

What did you recently finish reading?

I still am only half way through with Stunning. I read chapters here and there, but I’m not sucked in like I use to be (especially because now the mystery’s been solved, basically.)

What do you think you’ll read next?

Until the End: Final Friends Trilogy: The Party, The Dance, and The Graduation by Christopher Pike. I would really love to say that I’m going to read through all three of these books again. I’ve had it since my first trip back to Florida in 2011 and I just recently started rereading the first book. I absolutely loved Christopher Pike novels when I was in high school, and I distinctly remember this series to be more detailed and engaging as a young adult novel than the shorter books. I wanted to rekindle that excitement in reading for myself again. I want to remember what made me love a book when I was 15 years old.

By the way, the covers looked like this when I read them in the 90s:
