Welcome to the first installment of TheFABlife Book Club! *wild cheering* Today is a historic day, as together we shall turn the pages of the greatest dystopian YA novel of our time: Suzanne Collins‘ The Hunger Games. There will be blood. There will be tears. There will be bread. And there will be bread splattered with blood and tears. Most importantly, we will experience these moments together! *more wild cheering*
Your first reading assignment centers around The Reaping, or Chapters 1-4 of the book. We’ll be tweeting our thoughts over the course of this week and will post our re-cap next Monday. Follow us at @thefablife and participate in the conversation by using the hashtag #vh1reads. Every person who does so will be eligible to win either the Grand Prize (a hardcover copy of The Hunger Games signed by author Suzanne Collins, plus a box set of the trilogy) or the First Prize (a box set of the trilogy). And of course, come chat with us in the comments!
You can also follow along with me at my personal Twitter — @katespencer — where I talk a lot about YA and post exciting photos of the notes I am writing in the margins of the book. Get reading, get chatting and may the odds be ever in your favor! (We love saying that.)
