 Finally got a chance to read this book! The Hunger Games is about the Capitol who chooses 2 candidates of each gender and 12 Districts, and make them fight against each other in an arena for entertainment. Katniss and Peeta are from District 12, fall in love. There’s adventure, romance, and bravery shown in this book. This novel gets brutal when kids kill other kids for a game, but the suspense is brilliant. At the end of the book, they defy the Capitol together.

This is the final book in the “Bonnie series.” Years ago, Bonnie, the seven year old daughter of Eve Duncan, a forensic sculptor, vanished and presumably was murdered.  Eve devotes her life to finding out what happened to Bonnie..  Eve’s policeman significant other, Joe Quinn, and CIA agent and friend, Catherine Ling, along with Bonnie’s birth father track down Bonnie’s killer and locate her remains.  Bonnie guides them in their quest.  Thus, the book has a mystical element.  Even though it is the last book in the series, it is a stand-alone novel, thanks to an informative first chapter that fills the reader in on the beginnings.  Engrossing reading.

Eggs in Purgatory

From  Elaine Pasquali

Title:  Eggs in Purgatory

Author:  Laura Childs

The Cackleberry Club is composed of three women who have been friends since high school.  Together they run the Cackleberry Café in Kindred.  Their small town life is suddenly disrupted by two murders.  The plot takes twists and turns that include arson, embezzlement and a  local religious cult.  How are these factors interrelated?  Are they interrelated?  While the book isn’t as intricate as a Mary Higgins Clark or Patricia Cornwell, it is engaging and hard to put down.  Definitely a recommended summer read.
