First, I read The Hunger Games. Honestly, and please do not throw rotten tomatoes at your computer, I had a hard time reading this book before the movie was released. I put it away three times!!! Once I was able to picture the characters--because of all the movie trailers I could view online--the book pulled me in.
Now, I am reading Beautiful Creatures. This book has been sitting on my shelf for at least six months, so it is definitely one I have wanted to read but I have had so many other good books come my way that it just didn't get read. I am now reading Beautiful Creatures because I will NOT see the movie without knowing the story first. I like to compare the writing to the movie, even though I typically enjoy the book more.
I haven't read the book Warm Bodies, in fact I think the movie looks so good that I am considering never reading the book and just going to see the movie for fun! I know, bad reader!
