Tonight is the seventeenth episode of The Hunger Games Fireside chat, hosted over on the Picktainment website by friends of the blog Adam S and Savanna! Todd and I were both asked to join in on this special edition where they’ll be discussing the differences and similarities between The Hunger Games and Battle Royale. For those of you unfamiliar with Battle Royale it’s a similar book/movie in which teenagers are forced to battle to the death in an arena.

About a month ago I got an email from Adam Spunberg, a co-creator of the Jane Austen Twitter Project, thanking me for the kind blog piece I wrote about the project. The two of us began emailing back and forth talking about author events in our area and also about books that we loved. Adam mentioned that he thought I would like the Hunger Games trilogy. He told me about how awesome they were and about a podcast he was starting to discuss the books and the film that was going to begin production. I went out that weekend and got all three books in the series, finished them, and proceeded to email Adam to tell him how much I loved them! He was kind enough to offer me a guest spot TONIGHT on The Hunger Games Fireside Chat podcast.

Until then, happy reading!
