Lisa posted a spot-on review on Passage of Swallows of Catching Fire. It's spoiler free, so go ahead and read it. I think book reviews are Lisa's calling in life. I mean, she's been recommending books to me since elementary school, and she has never once disappointed me. We need to spread the word about her new(ish) blog, don't you think?
Really, though. Read them. Even if it means sitting in a Barnes and Noble for a couple hours at a time if you don't want to buy them and the library has a waiting list 100+ people long. It will be time well-spent.
And then we can all freak out together that we have to wait A WHOLE FLIPPING YEAR for the next one. Won't that be fun? :)
