Snapshot 2012 #7

Snapshot 2012 #7 is about the things you like to read. The kids and I find ourselves reading lots of dystopian book series lately, the most popular of which is The Hunger Games at the moment. We anxiously awaited the release of the  movie and added the soundtrack to our music collection the morning it came out. We’ve found quite a few other series that are just as good.

journaling: It's not new, but it is the latest trend in young adult fiction these days- dystopia. Some catastrophic world disaster has taken place and a new world order has begun. Something's not right though, and it is up to the youth of the day to stand up to the corrupt government and make changes- hopefully for the betterment of everyone. A few have been reading assignments in school to provoke thought and discussion, while others are ones that we have read just for fun. Current loves and favorites- The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins, Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth, Tunnels by Roderick Gordon & Brian Williams, and The Maze Runner Trilogy by James Dashner.
