Catching Fire - Suzanne  Collins

Last night, I dreamed that I was in the Hunger Games with my friend, Lydia. I was then inspired to watch the trailer for Catching Fire which comes out in November.


And thus, I am now re-reading the book - completely waylaying my reading plan. I'm supposed to be working towards being more well-read, not re-reading not-very-well-written-but-still-fun-to-read books for teens. 


Which I guess brings me to a point -  yes, definitely, reading should be a tool to learn, and grow, and to challenge oneself with. But it should also be enjoyable, and sometimes a reader needs to read a little fluff.
