Book Review: Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Since I’m doing nothing today, why don’t I finish writing my book review in Hunger Games trilogy eh? Right. Brilliant idea. But let’s make it short just in case. And since this trilogy already raid the bookstores since 2009 I guess many had read and enjoyed this already.

Anyway, this HG set was given to me by my boyfriend as a Christmas present. I was really planning to buy this for myself,  kaso naunahan lang talaga ako ni Ctoy hehe, since my cousin who is a fellow bookworm, gave a high recommendation for this trilogy. I started reading this book December 2010 and finished the lot in January 2011. The reviews given by other authors such as Stephen King and Stephanie Meyer aren’t just stints to sell the book, they are absolutely true. This trilogy is awesome!

Blogging, planning and new skin!

Okay, I’ve been lazy a lot lately. No posts, not even a book review or monthly greetings prepared. But hey, look at my new blog’s skin! I kind of got bored with the current design so I opt for a more simpler one, mostly white and texts and some lines.

So! For the starter I’ll just post all the stuffs I’m thinking of doing or done or still planning.

1. I plan to be a vegetarian, Pescatarian to be exact. Pescatarian’s abstain from eating animal meat except for fish. We’ll discuss how I will go through this transition in a separate article with the help of PETA and other vegetarians out there.

2. I will jog every Saturday or Sunday in Ayala Triangle, whenever I’m here in Makati.

3. Ctoy and I will do anything to save 300,000.00 pesos for our second hand Toyota Rav4 next year. Anyone who wants to have a site just contact me!

4. Currently I’m reading Hunger Game’s book 2, Catching Fire and continue with Mockingjay. I will post a review here once done. Suzanne Collins is the author of this amazing book.

5. After the Hunger Games, I’ll decide which to prioritize “I am Number 4” which will be out in Cinema this year or The Millenium Series by Stieg Larsson. Whichever I choose I still need to buy it.
