Leap Into Books Giveaway Hop


Welcome to my stop in the Leap Into Books Giveaway Hop! This hop runs from Feb. 29th - March 5th and is hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer & Jinky Is Reading. All participating blogs are giving away something a reader, blogger, or author would enjoy. Wanna know what I'm giving away?!


Twenty-four are forced to enter. Only the winner survives.

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death – televised for all of Panem to see.

Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

Yeah! A copy of The Hunger Games movie tie-in edition. I'm so freakin' excited about the movie coming out in less than 25 days so I thought, why not give the book away? The Hunger Games is definitely a book you wanna leap into if you haven't already. I dove, no, more like belly flopped into it and thought it was amaaazing.. So, hurry up and enter already!

Giveaway open to anywhere the Book Depository ships. Make sure your country is on the list

a Rafflecopter giveaway

  4. I read the book and enjoyed it. Must read the sequel now and see what happens. I already have the book soooo...

  5. You may kill me for this...but I've never read them! Is there anything objectionable? Somewhere, I think I've heard that. But then too, I've heard a lot of good stuff about them lately! So. :) Anyway, looking forward to reading it someday!

    1. Nothing really objectionable in the first book (Hunger Games). Just two minor things, but I didn't have a problem with them. 1) when Katniss goes to the capital to prepare for the games, she's often nude in front of her prep team as they dress her, do her hair, makeup, and whatnot. 2) there are several kisses between Katniss and Peeta, but it's done to try to convince onlookers that they are in love (in an attempt to survive). That's it, really.

      In the second book (Catching Fire) Peeta and Katniss sleep together, but not in the way you think--Katniss has horrible nightmares, and so Peeta started sleeping with her to hold her when a nightmare started. Oh, and there was one weird part where a lady just suddenly takes off her clothes. It was really odd, imo, as she just kinda slips them off and keeps on talking with the people she is with. The capitol was a weird place!

      And in the third book (Mockingjay)...I can't think of anything that stood out to me....but maybe I've just forgotten it.

      Hope that helps! :-)

    2. Hi Charity! Katie actually pinpointed all the things I thought of. The other thing is, of course, the violence. There's a lot of it, but I don't get squeamish with that kind of stuff so I didn't mind it.

      Katie, you were a big help! I know I wouldn't have been able to word everything I was trying to say correctly haha!
