After reading the Hunger Games Trilogy, I read REA’s guides for the Educational Psychology CLEP and the Principles of Management CLEP because I planned on taking those exams. The books definitely prepped me for the exams and gave an introduction into both subjects. If anyone goes to take CLEP’s, I would recommend REA’s books. Personally, though, I have decided not to scavenge up the 200$ to take the exams when the credits at my school will only count as free electives. Either way, I enjoyed reading the books (:

6. So glad I stuck this trilogy out—the last book of the Hunger Games was definitely by far my favorite. To anyone who has started the trilogy, whether you love it or are disappointed with it: Read on through the last book, because it definitely gets better! (: At least, that’s my opinion. The only part that I was disappointed about was the Epilogue and the last 2-3 paragraphs of the book. But oh well (: Enjoyed this read of the trilogy the most.
5. Welp, finished Catching Fire last night and started Mockingjay, the third book in the trilogy. I was pretty confused up until the end, but then it was tied together nicely. Let’s see how the next book goes (:
Just finished this book that a ton of people recommended to me. All the talking up of this book just made me more critical of it,though. Certainly much better than the movie and a nice read. On to the next book in the trilogy(:
I’ve bought and read thoroughly two books of poetry by Andrea Gibson on my kindle: Pole Dancing to Gospel Hymns and The Madness Vase. I’ve read both books of poems in order but find myself going back to some of them over and over again digging for me. I would definitely recommend Gibson’s work to anyone with interest in modern poetry as well as LGBTQ rights, as well as other contemporary issues. She also has recordings of her performing the poems. Next investment (:
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
Two of my best friends actually recommended this book to me about a month ago. One wrote a research paper on Sylvia Plath, to the other, this book has simply been a favorite.
Although it was first published in England in the early 1960’s, this book honestly feels like it’s written in 2011. It honestly feels timeless, which emphasizes and reiterates the message of the bell jar even more. Definitely enjoyed this book. The end, as she plunged into madness, was very saddening and even painful to read, but so beyond beautiful written. I totally recommend it.
Well, I just finished my first book since adding this goal. I actually read it for pleasure (: No required reading here! It was a memoir called Skin Game by Caroline Kettlewell. Good beginning, slightly bored by the middle, and pretty powerful ending.
