I'm surprised too. I heard so many good comments about this series. Why didn't you like it?

I'm with Dani. Not really sure what all the hype was about, and I didn't finish the series. Better than Harry Potter? What is wrong with the world!

I really liked the series, however it is definitely not as good as Harry Potter!

her writing is nothing special. The concept was really interesting and the plots not that bad, but 1) Katniss is the Kristen Stewart of fictional characters, ZOMG she annoys me. 2) Peeta seems so whiney and sentimental it's hard to imagine him as someone who would actually exist as a guy in real life. 3) just did not like her writing style. at all.

not a fan. :P

I just started reading "Bared To You" which I have heard is similar to Fifty Shades of Grey, so i'm giving it a try LOL

I just finished "Bared To You" and even though it was VERY similar to Fifty Shades of Grey, it has a bit of a different storyline (still hot billionaire and all that) but I still liked it, quite a bit. Can't wait for the next book.

Recently finished The Help. LOVED IT.
Working on Go Ask Alice. Not my favourite, but it's okay. I wouldn't really recommend it though.

I was so dissapointed with Go Ask Alice cause I had heard many good things about it and I hated it.

Yeah, not worth it, I wouldn't recommend it. Really poorly written, which I know it's supposed to be a "found diary" (which it's totally not), but even still.

Now reading Push. It's so terrible and heartbreaking, but I can't put it down.
