(I had two challenge reveals today - click here for the Tiny Tin Challenge)
I love to read....I am part of an informal book club on FB...a member of GoodReads.com...and I love book discussions. I got a kindle for my birthday last year and I think it is awesome!
I don't know that I have a particular genre that I like to read. I like memoirs, I like popular fiction novels, I like some of the classics, I like reading fantasy and science fiction, and I even have a long list of recently read young adult books. The only young adult series I haven't read that everyone else seems to have read is the Twilight series and the Harry Potter series!
Some of my recent favorites have been The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson, and The White Mary by Kira Salak (I almost picked this book as my inspiration...). I am currently reading The second book in the Game of Thrones series.
When I saw Erin's challenge of a Challenge of Literature, an idea popped into my head immediately. As I mentioned earlier I like young adult books! I loved the City of Ember Series by Jean DuPrau, also loved Susan Beth Pfeffer's Life As We Knew It (The Last Survivors) series. And last year, I was engrossed with The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins! It is an exciting, adventurous series. A page-turner with a terrific heroine. It's full of wonderful themes about class and society; power; love; sacrifice; family and more!
So this is what I thought of when I read Challenge of Literature:
For my Challenge of Literature reveal, I present my version of the mockingjay pin!
The arrow needs some work - but I didn't have a chance to get the gold wire I wanted in time, so I improvised with what I had!
I really enjoyed reading all three books of The Hunger Games. I missed Ms. Katniss when I completed the series! When I look at my list of favorite books I do see a trend of what I like!!!
