I read YA, but they don t attract me much. This book had so many effect on me that I am beyond words. katniss and Peeta's struggle to stay alive in the arena and how the entire thing play off with friend's death was completely heart wrenching. If it's on your TBR pull it up on the top. This is a book that you do NOT want to miss. I know most of my gr friends reads erotica and smexy books, i do too. But this is a MUST READ book(less)

But when I did I couldn't put it down. This time Katniss and Peeta the victor's of The Hunger Game is now living in Victor Village trying to convince the capitol again that they are indeed lovers. But that was NOT enough for the precident of Panem. He twists the hunger game rules when it's time for the Quarter Quell dragging both Katniss and Peeta in the arena. 70% of the book is off the arena where Katniss is getting a whiff of a rebel that might be arise, in the mean time trying to come up with a strategy to save Peeta in the arena. That's exactly what Peeta wants as well.
In this book we get to see a lot of development in the districts and get introduced to some new characters.
By now I should choose a team, but I can't. Peeta is the leading boy, I see that. But I have a soft spot for Gale and now even Finnick. But him being a love interest for Katniss, is not likely. So II guess I am just suffering from both team delusion moment. o_O
Let's talk about Katniss some more. Three was one moment, one line that Katniss said would be forever my favorite line from this book. "But at the moment, I excuse myself from thinking bout even those I love most. I think only of me."
Before I finish, I am curious about one person in particular, Cinna. He is a capitol citizen, he asked to be district twelve's fashion designer and he makes a rebellious statement through the costumes he makes for Katniss. Now I want to know why what spur this on for him.
Now I finish it saying this book is a must if you a hunger games fan, AND keep the third one close because you'll start it as soon as you finish. I am on third chapter now. =D (less)

Lastly Mockingjay. This book is completely different then the first two. I had a hard time getting into it, but eventually I did. As I said before this isn't a romantic series so I wasn't invested on WHO will Katniss end up with. My main goal was to find out what happens now that Katniss has lost her home, Peeta and now she is a rebel. War, always have consequences. This side or that. No one wins without suffering the wrath first hand. I think that was the main thing Suzanne Collins tried to tell tell us through this book. It's a depressing ending, but still worth the read, deserves the five stars that I giving and I am waiting for my paperbacks so can give those to kiddos. *sniffles*(less)

You know sometime you read something non fiction and no matter how much you thought you wouldn't like it and end up falling in love with it? Did that ever happen to you?!?
Well, after I read All I Ever Wanted I can honestly say that is EXACTLY how I feel right now.
I just finished reading this like five minutes ago, and finishing the book gave me this floaty gooey sort of feeling and I was afraid if I waited to write the review this unexpected but very welcomed feelz of floatiness (is this even a word?) would disappear.
So in short this was a great non fiction contemporary novel I have read. Makes me want to read more in this genre. Thank you Kristan Higgins for introducing me to all these wonderful characters. I have definitely loved reading about all of them. This was my first read from Kristina Higgins but certainly not the last.
I don't think this book should be recommended to only the people who reads romance books, I would say All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins is recommended to all the readers above 18.
