I am currently powering my way through the second book of the Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. I’m definitely a latecomer to the Hunger Games scene and I picked it up simply because too many people recommended it to me that I could ignore it no longer. I think what deterred me at first was the enormous amount of people that liked it, including my friends who hardly ever pick up a book. The last time they did it was probably one from the Twilight series. Don’t get me wrong, I love my friends, but the ones that only read overly hyped up stuff that gets turned into movies I can hardly take seriously. With that aside, I truly am enjoying the Hunger Games series. I should be starting my reviews on them fairly soon. I need to digest it all.

While I’m powering through some books, Clockwork Prince has definitely taken a back seat. I picked this book up almost a month ago. Can you believe it?! I usually can read a book within a week depending on my schedule. I just feel absolutely so indifferent to this book, but I’m determined to finish it so I can do a proper review. Eventually. Perhaps before 2013. I think. Truthfully, it just feels so lethargic and forced. I really enjoyed the first three books of her City of Bones series and even liked the fourth one, but her Clockworkseries is just not working out for me. Some people prefer this series, but I just don’t like Tess and I can’t stand the similarities of some of the characters to those of the City of Bones series. Maybe if I knew exactly what Tess was, I’d pay her more attention, but right now, at halfway through the second book, she’s no more than a moocher and tagalong to the London Shadowhunters. *yawn* Needless to say, I’ll give a proper review if I finish it.
