My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Speculative Fiction and D'oh

Hi everyone, just to say I've not been logging on because the computer has been exacerbating my migraines and I know I keep saying it but I do expect to return to Blogland when the fog of life lifts.

So I thought I'd let you know what I have been reading and enjoying in the Speculative Fiction genre.

When She Woke by Hillary Jordan

Both hubby and I enjoyed this enormously.

And yes, I finally succumbed and read  The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (which is far better than the film, though the film is better than expected) Literally Un-put-downable!

I am now reading the second in the trilogy Catching Fire. I also have the third, Mocking Jay.

I also read the Ally Condie Trilogy  
Matched, Crossed, Reached, which I confess I enjoyed less and toward the end was forcing myself to finish it. Sadly, the ending of the last book did not satisfy either.

What are you views on these novels?
