The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Twilight this is not. if you felt an empty place in your reading soul after Harry and the gang left Hogwarts, this might be your next series. I normally hate Young Adult fiction (with the exception of Harry Potter) because characters seem so ridiculous and surely I was never so annoying at that age. Hunger Games has more accessible characters however and the story is quite intriguing and actually relevant in this age of revolution and war. The stark reality of the future is at times unbelievably cruel and at others, completely inevitable.

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2)Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was favorite book of the series, hands down. There were parts that completely took me by surprise. The action was detailed but not bogged down. It’s been a very long time since I’ve been able to get lost in a good book.

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This one, surprisingly, fell flat. It felt rushed and skipped a lot of parts. Maybe the publishers told her not to make a 7 book series, which easily could have been done. Ah well, the Hunger Games series is wonderful.
