I love books

Happy No. 6

This afternoon I read the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy. I don't want to read the third book, as I've enjoyed the first two so much, and I really can't see it ending good for anyone.

I really wish my niece was old enough for me to give these books to her. Katniss Everdeen is the type of literary heroine I want my Bells to read about; I worry that she'll want to read about Bella because of them having matching names, and Bella the Vampire-lover is exactly the opposite of the type of person I want my niece to admire.

But yes, I'm counting The Hunger Games as my Happy No. 6 thing, as I was starting to despair about books people were raving about, but these books have excited me again about original fiction.
