scollins-210-hg-jacketHappy Friday everyone!!!  I wanted to write a quick post before leaving for a long weekend in Las Vegas. 

Yep, that’s right I’m going to Sin City.  But,  not for adult-type fun…Nope, I am chaparoning 250 hormone-ridden band kids. 

Actually, to be honest, the kids are AWESOME.  And the weekend is sure to be a B.L.A.S.T….. (especially since I’m there with several of my best friends!).

So, before I run off I wanted to write a quick little post about my new FAVORITE book, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.  Let me start by saying I know I am probably one of the last people around to read this book.  And may I also say WOW.  This is by far one of the best YA books I have read.  The writing is simply amazing – strong, full, tight….something we should all strive for as writers.  She writes in the first person POV – and in present tense.  And she does so, masterfully. 

I won’t go into a lot of detail as to why I love it, as I’m covering that in next week’s Blog Chain post.  Suffice it to say the book changed the way I look at crafting stories. 

So, if you have not read it – – – get it NOW.  A sequel is coming out in September.

In the meantime…keep writing and have a fantastic weekend!!!  See you all next week.

  1. Las Vegas with band kids? Why is that question about this one time at band camp flittering through my head?


    Good luck.

    I’m looking forward to your chain post. I’m always interested in something that makes a person change the way they look at crafting stories.

  2. OMG wasn’t this insanely good? It was one of those books that I couldn’t read fast enough and then was mad when it was over. And to have to wait until September for the sequel – no fair!
