Until another book came onto my shelves.
The Hunger Games, I had been told, was brilliant. They were making a film of it now! But I have heard many people say how brilliant a book is and that a film is being made from it (Cormac McCarthy's The Road, for example) which I have thought were terrible! Then my mum bought it for me and insisted I try it out, so that she could read it after me if it was any good, so I did. I tried it out.
I then I spent the majority of the next two days riveted to the most brilliantly written, exciting and riveting book I had ever come across!
Yes, Harry Potter is all very imaginative and very lovely to read - but I really got to know Katniss! I was in her world!
So it is true! The Hunger Games is the new Harry Potter.
(This does not stop my love of Harry Potter, it has just proved to me that books can get better than it!)
