Up In Flames....

Just another manic Monday, eh readers?

Or just another beginning to what will hopefully turn out to be a fantastic week!

Katniss Everdeen. Even the just saying the name makes me squeal with delight.

Why????

Because when you pick up a book and decide that you might enjoy reading it, Katniss Everdeen, is exactly the type of MC that I want to read about. She's a badass--deadly with a bow and arrow--fierce--in knowing she has to do what she has to, to survive the Hunger Games. And last but not least, at times, even though she is a very strong character, you get a certain sense of vulnerability from her. When you read a novel with strong characters, their vulnerability is important. To me, it makes them feel more human.

Katniss Everdeen was the girl who was on fire and that's why Catching Fire by: Suzanne Collins is on this list at #8.

Catching Fire, is my absolute favorite book of the Hunger Games Trilogy. There is so much, action and angst. Not to mention the love triangle between Katniss, Peeta, and Gale. I was team Peeta all the way.

And the ending left me on edge completely. Some people don't like that. Some people don't like when the book cuts off and you know undoubtedly that there is going to be another book following it. I do. Why?

When I'm reading a great series, I never want that series to end. I'd rather it go on infinitely.

If you haven't read any of the trilogy, I suggest you do. Trust me, you'll want it to go on forever too!

Cheers!

  1. Great review! You hit the target right-on with your statement about the main character. I've read many books that were written well and had lots of action, but if you don't feel a relationship with the MC, well...then the book didn't meet your expectations. And cliffhangers, love them if the next book is coming out soon! Rae, Best O' Books

  1. I need to catch up! I've only read the first book. The second one's on my shelf.

  1. One of my favorite series! I loved all three books! I read them all in two days!
