Musing Mondays is brought to us from MizB of Should Be Reading. Thanks for the fun weekly meme! This week's Musing is...

What great books did you hear about/discover this past week?

My answer: Well, thanks for asking haha! :) This past Saturday I went to the bookstore with some girlfriends as doctor hubby was working ALL day and ALL night at the hospital. While we were there, I meandered over to the YA section, and finally decided to join in the craze with the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins! I've heard so much about them, and discovered that they are also going to be made into movies. I bought a nice boxed set with all three hardcover books.

My friend also happened to mention the book, Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman. I love the movie version of this with Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock and was excited because I hadn't known before that the movie was based on a book! Maybe I will read it around Halloween in the Fall :). Happy reading everyone!

  4. Ooo, I can't wait to see how you like Hunger Games. I loved it!

  5. I just finished The Hunger Games yesterday and now I NEED to read the next two books. It's not my usual type of read but man did it suck me in! I can't wait to see what you think of it.
