Without A Trace and The Hunger Games.

It has only been almost two months but the feeling of being single is so good, I totally forgot how it feels like. Though I am saddened of closing another chapter, somehow it feels right. It's time to focus on things I neglected like my friends, meeting new people, studying, and other stuff. I deleted him on my Facebook, I rarely talk to him even though we're on the same classes and Student Council Officers, my phone, online messenger, his pictures -- no trace of him and that helped me move on and grow. It's not that he did something so unforgivably wrong; it was my choice to want to forget about him.

But I'm not denying the fact that there's always gonna be space for him somewhere. I'll let Future HalfCrazy deal with that.

For now I'm just gonna put it aside and continue to get to the place where I want to be. I'm excited. I'm getting there. I hope to get there.

A few months ago, I bought Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and I'm glad I did. This book is so compelling and addictive that when it came to my knowing that it spawned two more sequels, I was excited to purchase but had to fall back cos the two books are way out of my normal price range for buying books.



Actually, I think this is a marketing strategy and a pretty good one at that. The first book (softbound) was so affordable, at par with three Big Macs from Mcdonald's (or maybe less) while the other two, both hardbound and not having softbound and paperback copies costs $18 a piece. Having no choice, a lot of readers bought the two books even if they are expensive. No, I wasn't one of them. Even if the first book was SO GOOD, I had to restrain myself. Good thing there's softbound versions of the series on Powerbooks but with different covers.

Nonetheless, go out and buy the first book! Know the Battle Royale movie? If you liked it, you're going to like the Hunger Games series.

Much Love,

Oh my gosh! What timing! I"m addicted to those books. I think about them incessantly. It might be bordering on unhealthy, actually.

You are a very clever and tough young lady, being able to handle and leave your past bravely, and to get engrossed with something more valuable and practical to you!

Have a pleasant weekend!

I see it has almost been a week since you posted. Unacceptable!!! I don't comment often but I do take attendance!!!

Love that you put book pricing in terms I can understand. Three Big Macs or a book? For the price of four Big Macs I wouldn't bother, but three Big Macs might be enough to get me to check out your pick.

Now where are you this sort of absence really is unacceptable!
