Catching Fire

Pin It

Oh.  My.  Gosh.  If Suzanne Collins was sitting next to me right now I would give her a big ol' kiss on the lips!!!  Not only did she hit it out of the park with Hunger Games but then she out did her self with this little gem.  I was so excited to see what was going on with Katniss and Peeta that I feel like I flew through this book and really didn't have time to digest it.  I even had to go back and skim back through chapters to pick up some details that I flew past the first time on my anxious pursuit to see what was going to happen next!

In this second installment of Suzanne Collins Hunger Game trilogy we start out back in District 12 after Katniss and Peeta have survived the Hunger Games.  After they come back home and readjust to life in District 12 they have to head out on their mandatory winners tour of the districts, unfortunately President Snow is oh-so-angry about their little rebellious move in the Hunger Games arena and he is out to make an example out of Katniss and Peeta.  With rebellion rumors bubbling up in the some of the districts and the "Quarter Quell" just around the corner, we are right back in the thick of things with Katniss and Peeta.  You don't really know what is going on until about page 175 but when you get there you are like OH MY GOSH, HOLY MOLY, I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT JUST HAPPENED, WHAT THE HECK!!!!!

I think that this book may even top the Hunger Games if you can believe it!  I LOVED the ride that Suzanne Collins took me on with this one.  The only 2 things I can complain about is that I can't wait a whole year for the final story to be told and I still don't know if I am Team Peeta or Team Gale!!

Book vs. Movie:  Yes please!  Hurry!!

  1. I know, it is so hard to wait for new books, huh!?

    She said she's not going to write the movie until the 3rd book is out. Ahhh! Seems so long to wait!


  2. If suzanne Collins was sitting next to me, I would tell her to hurry up with book three;D



  3. I loved this book too!

    I'm leaning on Peeta but I'm very undecided.

  4. I gobbled up Hunger Games and am waiting to get my hooks into this! Glad it didn't disappoint.

    Happy reading!

  5. My sister as been going on about 'the Hunger Games' for sometime now and now I think I'll take a look because of your review.
    Thanks for sharing all the very best.

  6. Yes! Yes! Yes! I so agree. I absolutely devoured this book and am dying as I wait for book three. I think I'm team Peeta, but I kind of go back and forth.
    Great blog - I love it!
