I'm behind the curve on this one, but it was totally engrossing!
I wasn't sure how I felt about this one at first, but it kind of grew on me. By the time we discussed it at my book club, I rated it 4/5. I'll probably read it again.
read it before I knew it was going to be a movie
an all-time favorite

Obvious recommendation, but the Hunger Games series is amazing! Second Book - Catching Fire
Atonement Ian McEwan
Oryx and Crake - along with The Year of the Flood, this is my favourite Atwood storyline. I hear there's more to come...
Fiction; conjoined twins write an (anti-climactic) autobiography as they are suffering an aneurysm
Mockingjay, by Suzanne Collins. The third and final book of the Hunger Games series. I liked books 1 and 2 much better, but Mockingjay tied things up nicely.
