I'm Hungry!

I finished the last book of the Hunger Games trilogy series the other day.

Whew! All books were so exciting and thrilling to read that it only took me 8 days to finish all three. :)

Anyway, I am not an English major, and definitely not a master of words and creative writing. I am not sure if I will be giving the series some justice when I write my own 'review'.

IMO, Hunger Games and Catching Fire are far more exciting than the last book. I just didn't like how the story ended. There can even be a book 4. Hahaha!

I loved the twists and turns of the plot. I really had a hard time predicting what will come next. Page after page, the intensity level of the Hunger Games just keeps on increasing.

I am really hoping the author considers doing a book 4. Some parts of the book were left hanging. And I really want it to have a Gale-Katniss ending. Hahaha!

Now, I'm super excited to catch the movie! Here's a sneak peek. :)

This Is Useful!!!

I was reading Frances' blog, that led me to reading Kabbie's blog. Haaay, seems to be a super fun and dynamic OK! group. :)

Okay, now back to the real point of this blog post. I was engrossed in backreading Kabbie's blog, and I saw this:

I am so heading to Saizen as soon as I can to buy this. And I quote Kabbie: "Aminin mo, useful siya"

Hunger Games

I bought the box set of Hunger Games Trilogy for my sister. I know I'm going to read it soon.

I bought it two or three months ago, I think. And it is only when the boyfriend asked if I have the books (and asked to borrow it), that I decided I should read it first to give a good recommendation to the boyfriend. Hahaha!

I started Saturday morning with the first book, and was done yesterday (Monday). I just can't seem to put the book down. It just gets more exciting as I move from chapter to chapter. I felt like I was in the Arena as well. Although, at first, I was trying to grasp the whole idea of "killing" tributes. I thought the book was all about brutality and all not-so-good-stuffs. Good thing I tried reading more pages, that's when I can't stop reading. :)

I'm almost halfway done with the 2nd book (Catching Fire), and I plan to bring the 3rd book to Boracay this weekend. I can't wait to finish, but also sad to end my short affair with Katniss, Gale and Peeta.

Are you looking for a good, entertaining book to read? I can recommend the Hunger Games Trilogy. Not my usual chick-lit/boy-meets-girl/rom-com book, but definitely a must-read. :)

Oh, and this will also be shown in the big screens in 2012. No huge expectations though, we know that great-books usually turn to blockbusters-but-not-so-good movies, right?

More Television!

With all the US TV Series I've been downloading and watching. How come I still crave for more?

Yes, I find time to watch these shows. I sometimes neglect my unread mountain-high level of books. (Sorry!)

Watching these TV shows is just addicting. Really!

So, what have I been hooked on lately? Aside from my usual faves, (read here), I found out about these absolute interesting and entertaining series. It's already on its 3rd season, but I only chanced upon it recently. So, give a round of applause to...

This series is set at the Hamptons. The main characters are the Lawsons. One of them is a concierge doctor, Hank. And the other, Evan R. Lawson, is the CFO of Hankmed. It's just nice to fancy the life these people are enjoying when it's summer in the Hamptons. The plot is similar to Grey's and House, but more luxurious, because most patients are really really rich. :)

Another TV series I can't get enough of is Once Upon A Time. Brings back the kid in me. :) This is about how people living in a small town had a kind-of link in our favorite fairy tales. Some characters that were already introduced are Snow White, the Wicked Stepmother, the Prince Charming, Jiminy Cricket, Rumpelstilskin, and a lot more. It's fun to suddenly blurt out "Si Sleeping Beauty!" or "Ang galing, friends un dalawang villains". It's just fun to watch. :)

I have another series that I've been loving for the past weeks. It's REVENGE. This deserves a separate post though. :)

How about you, any new TV discoveries? :)


35 days till Christmas! :)
