Catching Fire

Catching Fire
Suzanne Collins
5 Stars

After winning the Hunger Games, Katniss and Peeta return to District 12, but much to her dismay she still finds herself the center of attention. After a shocking and scary visit from the President, she joins Peeta on the tour of the Districts and then learns that they will be part of the 75th anniversary games.

I couldn't wait for this book to come out. I had the day marked on my calendar when I could go get it! (Yes, my review is very, very behind, I read this book in September and now it is November) I enjoyed this book just as much as the first in the series. It was fast paced and page turning. Writing this review makes me want to get both the Hunger Games and Catching Fire out and re-read them! I thought a lot of the action would take place during the tour of the districts, but once that was over so fast I was left wondering what would turn the book would take. It took me by surprise that Katniss found herself in the games again.

I finished this book and still didn't want to put it down. I compare these books to the Uglies series, but I enjoy these so much more. My only hope is that the third book doesn't turn in that direction. I cannot wait until the third book to see how things turn out for Katniss, Peeta and all her family.

I am so glad I was introduced to this series, I am in love with Suzanne Collins and her creativity

I was surprised how much I liked Catching and Hunger. Hate to start reading a series before the author has written all of it. Too long to wait between books.
