The book I am most grateful for is...
The Hunger Games
by Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games was basically my introduction to YA novels. The dystopian setting, the thrilling plot, the amazing characters... it all added up to a memorable reading experience. It created a chain effect and soon enough, I was devouring YA books!
This novel also opened up the fascinating window to dystopia, which has become my favorite genre. The controlling society and rebellion always were suddenly extremely intriguing and I have only Suzanne Collins to thank.
I really need to thank Suzanne Collins for writing such a wonderful trilogy that I'll always be grateful for. :)
