Ok, I’m sure I’m not the first person to blog about this, but I read Hunger Games recently and dayum.
First off, I’m not a big fan of the first person perspective so I was surprised when I read this book in less than a day. First person always makes me feel separate from the setting and world of the story, but the main character was so compelling I was easily able to get past it. (This did not happen with the Sookie Stackhouse series, sadly).
The setting is fabulous. A world where young children fight to the death to feed their people. It’s twisted and brilliant. It reminded me a little of the movie Robot Jox from the early 90s where instead of fighting wars countries fought by training experts to operate giant robots.
I haven’t enjoyed a young adult series as much since Harry Potter. Bravo and looking forward to reading the rest of the series
Funniest thing I’ve seen on YouTube in forever!

I’ve never been into blonde men. Something about their hair being lighter than their skin always confused me. Then there was Aaron Eckhart. Oy vey. I saw Battlefield: Los Angeles the other day, he did a wonderful job portraying Staff Sergeant Nantz, a veteran Marine who, as he is about to retire, gets called back to save Los Angeles from alien invasion. Fun action science fiction, and well developed characters.
Thank you for smoking, sir
Shirtless and in bed. I’ll take one!
I knew he wasn’t a natural blonde. For women the tell is their eyebrows. Apparently for men it’s their chest hair. LOL

From my current WIP “The Flare”
Everyone was waiting.
She was waiting.
Waiting for her body to wake up and give her the sign. The indicator that one of these men was made to kindle her flare and bring her body into womanhood. Every unmatched male on the planet gathered for each Flare Ceremony, hopeful they’d be chosen as a mate. With fewer and fewer females born each year, it was becoming increasingly important.
