I've been itching to read dystopian lately, and not just because of Omicron.
The Girl in Red is a Little Red Riding Hood retelling about Red, who is living in a pandemic world, similar to our current Covid-19 environment.
Suzanne Collins strikes again with the fourth installment of the Hunger Games series. This one follows Cornelius Snow before he's become President Snow, when he's just 18 years old. A perfect companion to the series, and frankly, I want more Snow books.
I forced myself to go through the book, hoping it would improve. But the writing was too much. Too many metaphors that pulled me out the scene, things like "my jaw was hanging by a shoelace." Poor writing overall, which is surprising for Mafi. Her other books were superb.
