That's because the character of Gale underwent a ridiculous personality switch.

Personally, I thought Katniss should've not married either of them.

Finished Circles of Deceit, which I really enjoyed. Am now on Dissolution by C. J. Sansom, a mystery set in Tudor England, with a hunchbacked lawyer as the detective. So far it's pretty good; I particularly like the fact that Sansom sets the scene without showing off all the research he's done.

Finished "Nothing to Envy" by Barbara Demick; thanks to all who recommended it in the "Pictures of North Korea" thread. Totally fascinating read, and just mind-boggling.

(time to take a short hiatus from books to finish cross-stitching baby stuff for my sister, and then back on! Well, maybe a book for the trip to Skate Canada...or maybe two, one for the flight there and one coming back...or maybe... ;) )

I borrowed it from the library after the recommendation in Politically Incorrect as well, mind-boggling for sure. I actually read the whole thing in a single day, I was so caught up in it.
I'm currently reading " Somewhere Inside" by Laura and Lisa Ling; it's about the American journalist who was imprisoned in North Korea.

On a lighter note, is anyone an Anne Tyler fan? "Breathing Lessons" and "The Accidental Tourist" are 2 of my favorites of all time.

Now have 7 books coming from B&N thanks to Spinner's post above. None of them can be considered 'kid's books'. :lol:

Ohhh, what'd you get? I ordered Erin Morgenstern's much-buzzed-about Night Circus, Brandon Mull's Fablehaven #1 (young reader) and Neil Gaiman's Graveyard Book. Total order was $21 dollars and I got free express shipping because I'm a member--score!

Love her books. They are hard to find here- I'll have to look into ordering that one, which I haven't read yet.

Just saw this post, cygnus. I have this one and I can bring it to SC if you want it.

Half way through JD Robb's New York to Dallas (the latest Eve Dallas). It's one of her better books. I never cease to be amazed at how much I enjoy the series even though this is like number 27 or 28 I think, and how much I dislike her writing as Nora Roberts. This particular book has a good mystery and good plotting although it's a little intense in some areas. The theme is child abduction which is a hot topic among a lot of writers since Elizabeth Smart and Jacyee Dugard. Either that or it's always been a theme for mystery/thriller authors and it just seems more prominent due to the real cases. In any event, this is a good addition to the Dallas/Roarke series.

I feel the same way and can't figure it out, either. I just finished Treachery in Death and enjoyed it as much as I did all the rest.

Maybe because Roarke is hot. ( I know he isn't real, but...)

I debated Night Circus and the new Maeve Binchey book, but went cheap for my selections. :shuffle: My books: Winter Garden, The Postmistress (WWII), Cathedral of the Sea (Spain), The War That Killed Achilles: The True Story of Homer's Iliad and the Trojan War, The Forgotten Garden (orphan girl overseas), The Girl She Used to Be (witness protection after seeing whacking), and Rainwater. I spent $28 total and will be happily busy for a few weeks. :) What I really love is that most are hardcover!
