Checking in on Teen Tuesday




Good morning everyone! I'm sure by now everyone has read Catching Fire - the sequel to Hunger Games.



I thought it was incredible! It definitely started out a little slow for me, but once the changes began in District 12 and the Quarter Quell twist was announced...I couldn't put it down. And what an ending - once again I'm left with my mouth open and waiting for Book 3.



Another book I just finished was Shiver. I took this book with me on our trip to New Hampshire over the long weekend and I couldn't put it down. I was reading it every free minute I got - it was driving everyone NUTS! Told in alternating points of view - Sam and Grace - we hear the story of a girl and how she was saved by wolves. Or should I say one wolf in particular. Years later, she is obsessed with the wolves - and her one wolf. But are they dangerous? A classmate is killed, or is he? Mystery, confusion, suspense - it's all here - plus an amazing love story. I loved it!

Finally, I read Once Upon a Witch - I got this as an ARC and not sure if it's out yet. But it's amazing. Witchcraft, sibling rivalry, time travel - this one has it all. Read my blog for the full review!

What's in my pile to read? I'm looking at a copy of Along for the Ride by Sara Dessen - so that is next! And I'll be giving away an autographed copy of that same book on my blog - so check it out!

I haven't read it! However, a friend is buying it for me for my birthday (and even if he wasn't, I was planning on ordering it asap) so I am really excited.

I still have to read Hunger Games (I know...). The book just came out here like three months ago (Argentina: here), and I'm seriously considering buying it, even if I have to spend all my savings in it. Yep, books here are way too expensive, and I'm not much of a saver, just got enough money to buy HG.
