Someone take them away from me! Nah, I didn't love this book. I know I'm in the minority, and part of me is glad about that. I mean it when I say this book deserves recognition, and honestly, I'd Hungar games people were reading this and following a heroine as independent as Katniss, rather than a simp like Bella or Bethany.
The Hunger Games is high-quality YA, intelligently written, and despite its flaws it's worthy of success. Here's where I be I have got to stop poking fun at this series with memes.
