Book Blogger Hop: The September 10-13, 2010 Edition

4732408654 2c2fe8ef6f m Book Blogger Hop: The September 10 13, 2010 EditionBook bloggers are a great bunch of people to get to know better, but even though many of us participate in the weekly Book Blogger Hop, we don’t always find ourselves getting to check out each others sites as much as we would like. We have lives, other commitments, and other posts to write to keep ahead of schedule. That’s why I really think that the question we were asked to ponder this weekend was really worthwhile: let me know what you think about the topic.

This week’s question is: What is your favorite post that you’ve written in the last three months on you site?

When I first saw this post, I immediately thought that I’d be linking to my review of Suzanne CollinsMockingjay. I loved this book and I really felt that it summed up everything that the Hunger Games trilogy had been working toward for the last two years. Even when the plot didn’t end up exactly as I would have liked it to, I knew that Collins had made the right choices.

Still when I thought about it a little more, when I let my mind wander, it went in a totally different direction, and I knew that it was for the best. While I loved writing about Mockingjay, I think that my favorite post from the last three months is actually about Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson. It might be a backlist title, but there is a lot to love about it. For those of you who excelled in school, Kate Malone is a character with whom you might really identify. While it’s really an emotional roller coaster as I allude to in the review, the journey is well-worth taking. Check it out, and take the time to read the rest of Anderson’s YA novels while you’re at it!

    Thanks for stopping by and checking out my review of Mockingjay, Anne. It’s true – many books are quite contentious and with book series that have such a wide following, like the Hunger Games trilogy, it’s likely that Suzanne Collins wouldn’t be able to please everyone. It’s a difficult task, being a popular writer. :)
