I’ve been traveling a ton this summer for work, which means lots of long plane rides and the chance to make a dent in my stack of books to read. So far my favorite read of the summer has been the YA novel The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It’s not for the faint of heart (I cried at least twice, possibly 3 times), but it has all the elements of an exciting, thought-provoking, and heartfelt read.
If you have time to read one more book before the end of summer, I definitely recommend this one. I already can’t wait to read the second book in the series Catching Fire (The Second Book of the Hunger Games), which comes out in September.
