Catching Fire

When I finished Hunger Games last month I immediately went out and bought Catching Fire. I waited a little while before reading it because I hate reading all the published books in a series and then waiting for the next one (note to self: only read series in which all books are already published).  But once I started it, I finished it within 24 hours. And now, of course, I am anxiously awaiting the third book. To anyone who hasn’t started this series yet: It is amazing and you should read it immediately.

I started writing this review and then realized that I have nothing to say except that I LOVED Catching Fire. Even more than Hunger Games. It had a fantastic twist in the middle, ends in quite the cliffhanger, and characters develop in ways you wouldn’t expect. This book begins with a very fatalistic air but ends with hope. I can’t wait to see where the story goes next.

I am still undecided regarding the Team Peeta/Team Gale debate. Unlike Twilight (Team Jacob!) I like both of them and I think Katniss could be happy with either. If I had to pick, I think I lean toward Peeta but since the love story isn’t the main focus of the novels, it really doesn’t matter to me who she ends up with.

  1. I finished The Hunger Games last night and I loved it so much! I read it in two days and couldn’t put it down, it’s such a tense read too I was practically nawing on my fingernails in suspense. I put Catching Fire on reserve at the library and I can’t wait to read it! The Hunger Games is definitely one of my favourite books of the year.

  2. Interesting review giving tantalizing glimpses into the story!

    On a different note, I see that you have finished reading ‘Pride and Prejudice’ finally 🙂
    Congratulations! Looking forward to reading your thoughts about it.
