Katniss lives here!

Many of you may have guessed from my
daughters birthday wish list that we have
come to love, adore, and daydream about
the book Hunger Games! My parents,
my siblings, my husband, my nephews, &
my children are all enthralled with this series!

I promise not to give anything away in this post!
My #1 rule for reading this book:
Do not read the synopsis! The less
you know about the book before you start
reading, the better! I went in open minded
and I was swept away and IN LOVE!!!

I will tell you that the main character is
named Katniss and she is awesome! Summer
has know devoted many hours to creating
survival games to play with her cousins this
summer at Grammy and Pops Camp (my
parents take all the grandkids for a week during
the summer and spoil them rotten).

Her planning has led to fires being
built in our front yard to archery
lessons for Family Home Evening!
My kids are actually getting along....
and it's all thanks to Katniss (I mean Summer).
Go get the book and dive in....
then read Catching Fire (book 2)!
You won't be disappointed!!!

I LOVE the series as well! Can't wait for book 3 to come out! Summer might just give Katniss a run for her money! ;)

So awesome!! I love the Hunger Games-still trying to get George to read it. Can't wait for Mocking Jay to come out. Love the bow and arrow!!!

Whoa there Katniss, slow down, my boys need to learn a few things before the island this summer. All though they do claim to be great fire starters.

I am excited to try Summers bow - you do know I was the champion at the Openshaws!!! Amy suggested a building a trap competition. Summer, add that to our agenda.
