Booktober Challenge Post 8 (Late)

I am so sorry I am late with this post, time got away from me yesterday and I forgot all about it. The reason for this is because we went to the Ballet last night to see Swan Lake, I will of course be posting about that at some point.

A never really understood the concept of YA fiction until I had a daughter who became addicted to the genre. As an adult I was always a little wary of venturing in, whether I would be embraced into this world. Since taking my first steps into it I have discovered I am not the only adult who reads YA.

The book I have chosen is The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. This was the first YA book I read, I think? Or should that be remember. A dystopian fantasy, in which the main character is a 17 year old girl called Katniss Everdeen. Katniss ends up volunteering to be a tribute to save her younger sister Prim from going into The Hunger Games.

“The only thing stronger than fear, is hope” – The Hunger Games

The series consists of three books – The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay. I really enjoyed the series up until the second part of the last book. The ending disappointed me.
