    I haven’t read the Harry Potter series either, for the same reason you didn’t before now. Just too much hype. I also haven’t read the Hunger Games or the Twilight series. I have read Rawling’s new book “The Casual Vacancy” and loved it. She has a wonderful way of telling a story and managing many many characters.

      I haven’t read Casual Vacancy yet but I want to just to see how she does writing adult stuff after all of the Potter. I read the first Twilight book and called it garbage and have never regretted not finishing that series.. Hunger Games though? Loved it. What do you like to read?

        Most of the books I read are given to me by my mom and one of my book loving friends, so it’s pretty varied. The last several I’ve read have been pretty different from each other (The Casual Vacancy, The Poet of Tolstoy Park, The Hero With a Thousand Faces, Started Early Took My Dog, and Winter Garden). But when I pick one up for myself, it’s a mystery novel. The next two on my list are The Feminist and The Cowboy and When God Spoke English.

          I gotta say, I haven’t heard of any of those books besides Rowling’s, but, I’m primarily a horror/dystopian girl. To each her own I guess.
