Pondering

How long it will take Penguin to issue the rights to Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta here in the states.

Also, I think I'm due for a reread of Jellicoe Road.  It's been, what, four months since I last read it?

OH!  The sequel to The Hunger Games, Catching Fire,  is coming out in September!  Excellent! There are a lot of books coming out in the latter half of this year and I can't wait.

I would like to read Jellicoe Road the first time! Hopefully it will be in at the library one of these days! The Hunger Games is another book I am waiting for from the library.

Oh, you have to read them; they are both such good stories, and so completely different. Jellicoe Road has a kind of dreamy quality to it, bouncing back and forth between two different stories, while The Hunger Games is very much in the here and now, all paranoia and fighting for survival; very sharp.

I can't wait to find out what you think of them when you read them.
