Brightly Woven Hunger Games

Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken
The Hunger Games (Hunger Games, #1) by Suzanne Collins

I love The Hunger Games. I didn't check it out for myself though. I'm going to make my sister read it. Then I'm going to force ask her if she could possibly draw Katniss/Peeta fanart. hehe Yes, I know I already said that I wanted her to draw Taylor/Jonah from Jellicoe Road. (Read more at this post.) I couldn't help but to ask her for both couples though! She still has a few pictures she has to draw for other people though, so when she's done with those, I'll try to convince her some more. If you're interested in looking at her drawings, then go here. :)
As for Brightly Woven, I actually ordered it a few weeks ago, but I won't be receiving it until August. Decided to order it because the local library didn't have it, but guess what happened after I placed my order? The library decided to order it as well. lol So I figure I could read it first, and then decide if I really want to keep my order or not. ;) Hopefully I don't change my mind though!


  1. The Hunger Games, yay! I hope you enjoy both your books.
