The Harry Potter series totally captivated me from the very beginning. I even went to midnight releases of the movies as well as the midnight release of the last novel.
When all the hoopla hit about the vampire series, I just never even considered reading it because the subject matter has never appealed to me.
Then came Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I heard the excited buzz build over the last few years, was told to read it by friends and family, read the reviews, but I kept pushing it aside.
This week I finally paid attention to all the news stories especially the ones that compared it to the appeal of J.K. Rowlings' series. Today I ordered the Kindle edition and WOW! Just a few pages in and I'm hooked.
In one way I'm sorry I didn't read this trilogy sooner. In another way, I'm glad because I get to enjoy it now.
Am I the only one who is just getting around to reading it?
