"Catching Fire" was a good book that I really enjoyed. The book was filled with suspense because you never knew if Katniss would survive the Quarter Quell. Also the book had a lot of twists when it came to her feelings for Peeta.

The Hunger Games is about this girl named Katniss Everdeen.  She participates in the 'Games' they have for the districts to see who is the last person alive.  When she is in the arena she misses her family and just wants the 'Games' to be over with.  She has to win over people who are bigger and lived in an area where they were healthier and better fed.  Katniss also becomes friends with a girl in another district.  I liked this book because there was a lot of action.

Mockingjay is the final book in The Hunger Games Trilogy.  It proves itself to be just as interesting anf fast paced as the first two books.  Teh plot and the characters pull you in and don't let go.  That is why I give Mockingjay 5/5 stars.

This book is about Todd.  He lives in a world where you can hear everyone's thoughts.  Suddenly, he is forced to flee his hometown, Prentisstown, and travel to Haven, which is very far away.  He meets a girl along the way and they travel together.  I liked this book because it is unlike anything I ever read.  It was very exciting, and it made me want to keep reading it.

I liked this book so much because its adventerous and has you on the edge of your seat.  It's basically about theres this thing called the hunger games and they select one boy and one girl from each district (theres 12).  They will fight each other in the arena but 24 go in and 1 comes out as a winner.

I really enjoyed this book because it was full of suprises.  Katniss (the main character) has to try and feed her terrified mother and little sister by hunting after her father passed away.  After Katniss' sister is picked to go into the games, Katniss quickly volunteers to go instead.  Only one can win out of the twenty four.  Will Katniss make it through?  Read to find out.
