Books Worth Reading
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
Short review: A funny satire about a group of beauty pageant contestants that crash land on a deserted island. The main theme of the book is finding your real self and not living the life that others place upon you. It is not a deep book. The revelations are not that surprising. But it is a fun book and has a pretty good message. My full review is on my blog at http://bookwi.se/beauty-queens-2/
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
A wonderful trilogy - I love these books!

The Lifeboat - by Charlotte Rogan (very interesting book)
