New books!

I was thrilled to get a package today. My new books! I got a B&N gift card for my birthday so I used it for three books I'd been hearing great things about.

The Hunger Games
The Time Traveler's Wife
Midnighters

I know a few of you have read these but any thoughts you might want to share? I don't know which one to start with! I'm pretty excited that two of them are written in present tense. Since I'm pretty intimidated with writing that way so I hope to be inspired to give it a whirl if these stories are as good as I hear.

I don't know too many other things I'd rather get in the mail than books. Great way to start the weekend! Oh no - I just realized I have City of Bones, Marked and Bloodfever all started...all good but they aren't 'keep me up all night' sorta awesome. I hope one of these new ones hooks me like Forest of Hands and Teeth or any of the Twilight series did!

The Hunger Games is AWESOME. Can't wait to hear what you think of that one!

KLo - Laura has been bugging me to read the Time Traveler's Wife for years. I might have to break down and read it one of these days.

Time Traveler's Wife is probably the single best book I've read this year. It's so creative; it just blows my mind, the whole premise. And so beautifully executed! The characters are brilliant!

Read it, read it, read it!

Hmmm, apparently Hunger Games is really good. I should check that out.

If it's the same Midnighters I am thinking of, I thought it was excellent. I randomly picked it up a few years back when going through my YA writing kick. I was impressed with the originality and the flow. Have fun!
