catching-fire-usCatching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Type: fiction

Page Count: 391

TTBR Synopsis: Yeah, I read it again. I had to prepare myself for the new movie, and I’m so glad I did. I may not have noticed how close they came to making an exact movie replica of the book. And I had my doubts…

Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer

Type: non-fiction

Page Count: 333

TTBR Synopsis: I effing love this book. It freaks me out, excites me, I can’t stop thinking about Everest. I watch all the documentaries I can find, look at pictures of corpses on the mountain, and look for pictures of it online. I need to see it. I want to climb it. But I would probably die.

I’m pretty sure I read something else before the end of the year, but I think I’m possibly thinking of the two books I started but didn’t/haven’t finished until 2014.

Interest level: 10 – I read another Krakauer book this summer, “Under the Banner of Heaven,” and was totally absorbed in it. We decided to read this one in our International Book Club, and I could not put it down.

Recommendation level: 10 – Horrific, mesmerizing, terrible, amazing.

TTBR Synopsis: 11 went up. 6 came down.
