View from this book:
I succumbed! After thoroughly exhausting myself on my first day in Singapore, eating amazing food:
soaking in the beauty of places:
the 108ºF heat and 90% humidity finally got to me, and I had to limp back to my cousin’s apartment:
I perused her bookshelf (hooray for expat packages! they even shipped her books from the US!). She had a boxed set of The Hunger Games, and since, hey, who doesn’t like a bandwagon? I hopped on. I kicked back, turned on the air-con, cracked open the first book, and WHA-BAM! I was trapped.
I don’t even know if the writing was good or bad, but OH MY GOODNESS it was engrossing. Go read this book if you need two hours of your life sucked away because you can’t un-pry your fingers from the book covers. 8 out of 10.
