    I really, really, really loved this book,and I usually don't like non-fiction, biographies, or any genre of that sort. This book took me by surprise. Here I am finding this book in the library and picking it up. Who knew I would actually fall in love with it? It's gripping. The author draws you in with the events and actions. He spins the words and makes a woven masterpiece. The suspense and mystery scenes were really engaging, the story line so intense. I found myself learning new things about Martin Luther King Jr. And can I just say how much I loved how the author spelled out most of MLKJ's life? This book wasn't just about the murder of MLKJ, it was about how he lead marches and changed America. Another thing that I liked is how the author wrote the scenes leading up to the murder. It seemed a lot like the show on National Geographic, Seconds from Disaster. It showed where James Earl Ray stood and how he shot MLKJ. I found that incredibly interesting. Oh, and I just loved how the author showed how the FBI and police tracked Ray and how he ran away. Long story short, I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a nice suspense/mystery-nonfiction-biography-type book.

    ** spoiler alert ** Hmm.. I don't know what to think about this one. I love the series, I love the author, and I love the characters. I loved how brave and fearless Cinder is. She was inspiring in a sense and entertaining. No.. wait, she was lovable. I really loved all the characters in the book but I had to address Cinder because the spotlight was mainly on her. The characters are what really kept the book from getting a two-star rating. Okay. Now the plot, story-line, and overall book. It was..long. Really long. Unnecessarily long. There were a lot of moments in the book when I felt like the author extended the book more than it was needed. I'm talking 400 extra pages for nothing I'm sure I am not the only one that complained about that. And can we just talk about the ending? It was sloppy. Really sloppy. It was nothing compared to Cinder, Scarlet, or Cress. It was way too simple. And knowing Levana and how she's cruel and evil and stuff didn't make me buy the ending. And can someone explain that Disney-moment-thing that happened. Cinder leaving Levana alone because Levana said (in a sense) 'sorry,' or something like that. Too cliche. And please, I don't fully understand the ending. Did Cinder beat her with her glamour or..? What about Scarlet and Wolf? Cress and Thorne? I know she gave us little snippets of an explanation but.. really? I don't know, but I am disappointed. The Lunar Chronicles will always be a series I will remember as a 'good' series. Winter was just the only black sheep.

    mybooksandi's book review was featured in The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, Book 1).
    I really should've read this sooner. I've watched all the movies and I loved them, but nothing really compares to the book. The plot was A.MA.Z.I.N.G and the entire setup was incredible. I've never really appreciated the story until now. At first it just seemed that the Capitol is just killing people for no reason, but the backstory itself is really interesting. As much as I love the story there's one thing I hated above all.. Katniss. I've tried and tried to force myself to like her but I just couldn't. She seemed really two dimensional to me. She hates the Capitol at one time but then a pretty dress converts her. She's great as a character in a book who's trying to survive, but not a great person herself. I appreciate her toughness and all, but I can't (with some things) relate to her. On the other hand, I LOVED Peeta. He just seemed like a really fun character. HE'S A BAKER THAT FIGHTS PEOPLE TO THE DEATH. Even though he didn't really kill anyone but whatever. In all, I really appreciate this book, but let's just make Peeta the main character.
