1) I don’t want to. I’m quite literally just not interested in the premise of the books. A game of survival among teenagers just doesn’t sound interesting to me.
2) The last two books where I have felt this way about and was convinced to read the books anyway were Twilight and Redeeming Love. And I was right then. (Oh how right I was!)
3) I have so many books I want to read, so why should I relegate those to the bottom of my to-read pile in lieu of books I don’t want to read?
I’m not saying that everyone who likes these books is an unsophisticated reader. I’m not even saying these books are bad. My friends know how annoyed I am that Suzanne Collins doesn’t know how to use who vs. whom, but that’s a forgivable offense. From the time I did spend with the first book, I did get the impression that they are not exactly the most well-written books ever. But there you have it. Thoughts? Want to convince me otherwise?
