Ooh.. I don't know how many times I have read that but it was one of those books in my teens.

13. Le potentiel érotique de ma femme by David Foenkinos
14. One of those Malibu Night by Elizabeth Adler
15. Hunger games by Suzanne Collins
16. Catching fire by Suzanne Collins
17. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Foenkinos has wonderful way to write, the story wasn't that interesting but writing was adorable.

One of those Malibu nights wasn't that bad.. we have used to watch movies with my sis and that way show our favorites and sometimes those are just wonderful (last her film was Colombiana ) but with books that hasn't work so well. This is part of the serie and I was actually interested in read third part but now I'm not sure if I even get there.

If someone would said that Hunger games is more war and rebellion than teenage killing each other tv-show, I would read it earlier. But marketers did their job, after looking enough Jennifer's Glamour cover I decided to read this. The idea was still awful and I didn't like the first book very much but with the second I totally lost in time which is not so good when you are reading it on the bus. I really liked that she opened up the world little bit more and show that you have to pay price about winning but still didn't tell everything, and it really raised many quoestions and make me thinks all connections other books, movies and real life situations. In the last book I mostly liked how everything wasn't black and white, there were so many shades of grey.. and in the end, difficulties doens't always make people stronger (how pop songs always seems to believe) sometimes they leave you empty and broken. Yeah.. I really felt this.. and I wanted to read it again, so I guess that is the good sign.

15. A Game of Thrones by George RR Martin

Still reading Henry and Cato by Iris Murdoch and also started Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut. I think I'll end up finishing that one before the Murdoch. I kind of started that and then began reading way too many other books - I imagine I'll have to get more George RR Martin now too : A Game of Thrones was such an easy, escapist read.
