Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane

Suzanne Collins’s exciting Gregor the Overlander series continues with Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane. Having excitedly paged through the epic adventure as quickly as my mind and fingers would allow, I may have missed a small detail here or there, so obviously I’ll just have to read it again. Poor me… It’s not as if I were perched on the edge of my seat, eagerly awaiting each moment of the book and now, clutching it in my hands, remain in the same position, having reserved the next installment at the library…

I think I’ve become a Suzanne Collins junkie. Fortunately, it’s easy for me to get a fix, and as addictive as my fixation is, I don’t think it’s going to cause any liver damage or anything like that.
