I feel the curiosity in me rising up higher and higher and was thinking about checking out the 50 Shades of Gray thing. Did you read on Kindle? I'm not spending $$ on them and the wait at the library is years. I see you gave it 5 stars.....mostly I was thinking the writing would be so bad that I wouldn't be able to get through them.
I can't find the other 2 Hunger Games books on my email at work. I will try to bring my kindle with me to work soon and I should be able to just copy them as pdf's and email them to you that way.
Also, I came across 2 books that are also dystopian genre (like Hunger Games) and thought I'd mention them to ya:
Delirium (author ?)
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Yeah, and that's not really spoiler-ish because I think she talked about it in a previous book. I knew reading the Prologue in this book that it was Payne that killed the Bloodletter.
I found it hard to reconcile her innocent, naive side with the tough-as-nails side of her. I also couldn't get a good image in my head of what she looks like.....my mind kept pulling up Angelina Jolie and I can't stand her. Yuk. Her character reminded me of the girl from The Fifth Element (Milo Jovovich?) but they look nothing alike.
There isn't much lesser stuff in this one although now we've got Xcor and his merry men to read about. I know they're probably going to be more of a factor in the next book(s) so I read it even though I hate being distracted from the main story with stuff.
