The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook is out. I got it from the library and it has tons of recipese from the books and the movie! It is so cool. They even have Katniss’s favorite lamb stew with dried plums and also Greasy Sa’s dishes! (don’t worry, the recipes don’t require wild dog meat) There are many recipes from district 12,13 and also the food of the Capitol. It is so cool!
Mastering the Art of French Cooking is a wonderful cookbook full of delicious French recipes and also many cooking techniques. I read it just like a normal book. It is awesome!!!
The Hunger Games is my new favorite book, hands down. Yes, Midsummer night’s dream, and island of blue dolphins. The book is about a yearly fight to the death between twenty four tributes for a prize of food for their district. The book turned out to not be as violent as I thought. I might even read it again!!!

When You Reach Me is a book about a girl who keeps getting mysterious notes from someone in the future. I can’t say who it is, but this is a touching story about friendship, and the willingness to give up your life for your friend. It also has bits of time travel involved. I loved this book and my mother loved it too. Perfect for any age.
