Welcome BACK to my Sundays In Bed With… Meme! The meme that dares to ask what book has been in your bed this morning? Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed, or which book you wish you had time to read today!
I know, I know, I switched to In Bed With a Book meme, but I’m switching back. I’m done trying to make this a blog hop, but still feel free to participate! Maybe someday I’ll try to make it happen as a blog hop again, but right now I feel like Gretchen trying to make ‘fetch’ happen.
This morning I’m reading:
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
I’m not doing a full re-read, I’m just reading the second half for movie comparison purposes. Unless once I start reading I go crazy an re-read the whole thing, which happens sometimes. I went with the Hubs the other night to see Mockingjay Part 2 and it was really good. I’m going again with my book club girls Thanksgiving Eve, so I thought this time I’d go in with more memory of how the book went. Here’s the thing- I’ve re-read Hunger Games and Catching Fire several times, but a few things happened in Mockingjay that upset me, so I’ve never re-read it. I understand the choices Collins made, but they were hard ones for me to read about (Gale’s transition into a super soldier, certain deaths…). But it’s been a few years and my feelings on what goes down have changed, and I see why they happened. War, rebellion, all of that is bloody and brutal, no matter what side you’re fighting for.
Which is all depressing, so I’m going to snuggle with my puppy and not think too hard about that. 🙂
What are you reading (or wish you had time to read) this morning? Are you reading the book you thought you’d be reading, or has today found you with a surprise?
