My Hunger Games books have really been making the rounds lately. I loaned them to my co-worker (a 50 year old man). He loved them. And now they're with my mom. She called me on Saturday and said, "PLEASE CAN I STOP BY AND PICK UP THE SECOND BOOK? I HAVE GOT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!"
It just always amazes me the way a book can transcend a genre. Yes, they are Young Adult books. But anyone can enjoy them! I think it's so rare that a book can do this. It's a very special thing. Not even Twilight hits this, I don't think. So I base this on if my parents will read the book. Which they won't read Twilight. The real test will be if my dad likes The Hunger Games. =)
It's just really neat. And I'm happy to be spreading The Hunger Games love! I just hope I get the books back. My copy of Water for Elephants was making the rounds, another fantastic book, and it is disappeared! Like magic! Ha!
Happy Monday! If there is such a thing.
UPDATE: My mom has finished Catching Fire. I gave it to her Saturday. She couldn't wait for Mockingjay so she went out and bought it, even though I have it! LOL!
