|This is pretty much EXACTLY what I looked like when I was chainsawing the tree.|
See, I told you it was weird.
Anyway, I expected a lot more from this. I keep reading Hunger Games knock-offs that disappoint. Even the 3 Hunger Games books seemed to decline as I went on (I'll probably face the chopping block for that statement). I read the first two Matched books (Matched & Crossed, 3rd one not out yet), and they were similar to Hunger Games, but not as good (and the 2nd one worse than the 1st). This was also similar to the other two series, in that it's an alternate future reality, crazy weird things are happening, and it's written for teens. But I struggled to even finish the book, and although I found the plot interesting, I just could not get "hooked" into the characters or the writing. I doubt I'll read the 2nd and 3rd. End tirade.
3. Yesterday I ran 6 miles with Jordanne and Lisa. I felt sluggish and slow and perhaps starving hungry, I'm not sure, but my stomach didn't feel right (it wasn't growling or anything either though, and it felt bad the rest of the night). But it was great to finally get a run in with them and get to catch up! This is what the trail looked like:
Needless to say, there was some major Warrior Dash-esque obstacle-coursing going on!
4. Cooper is adorable. Enough said. Here's a picture to get you through your day:

What questions do you have about chainsawing? :-) I will google search it for you. What are your thoughts on Hunger Games, Matched, & Mazerunner? Have any good book recommendations for me?
