You love me.

"Real or not real?"

I have been so busy lately. I have utterly missed my escape into the blogging world...being able to talk about what is happening in my life, journaling, and getting to read about other people's more interesting lives.
Between weddings, 11 hour work days, the world ending yesterday, and being the primary care giver to my grandma who just had knee surgery, I bet you can understand why I haven't been writing.

But I have been reading.
Every spare second that I've had, I've been reading. Because I fell in love with the characters of these books.

It's so good, I even carried it in my purse and read it at red lights on my way to work.
I got so caught up in the story that I didn't go on Facebook for a week. Not that that's a bad thing.
I highly, highly recommend these books.
It creates a world that we'd never want to live in, but want the characters to defeat so badly.
Where children are forced to kill each other while the country stands by and watches, doing nothing.
Where a girl can become a statement without even knowing it.
And it's about time that I fell in love with Peeta, too.

*Peeta Mellark, from Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games.
