I've always read a fairly wide variety of books, but since I started blogging my reminder list just keeps growing and growing. I've discovered a lot of books from other bloggers that I never would have picked up on my own. The best example of this is The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
I'm sure The Hunger Games will get mentioned a lot by other bloggers today, but I took a lot of convincing to finally pick it up. While I really enjoy YA books, the futuristic aspect of The Hunger Games had me convinced I wouldn't like it. I'm glad to say I was mistaken! Now, I can't wait to snag a copy of Catching Fire.
