So I bet you’re wondering where I’ve been…
I’ve been reading a lot.
I’ve been lost in it actually.
It’s not great English literature.
It’s not about Jesus.
I’ve been reading The Hunger Games.
Embarrassing and true.
It’s okay. You can laugh.
I was obsessed. This has happened to me before with other series. Characters like Harry Potter or Percy Jackson draw me in to their alternate realities and I can’t stop. I didn’t think it would happen with Katniss. I didn’t think that a dystopian novel written for young adults would draw me in. It did. I was hooked. I just couldn’t stop.
Now I’m not sure what to read. I know I should get back to Jesus and the Church but I feel drawn back into the world of young adult literature. Should I reread Harry Potter? Does Percy Jackson deserve another visit? I’m not sure where I will go but I can guarantee it won’t be Twilight. Vampires that sparkle just seem stupid to me.
