Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Sparks are igniting.
Flames are spreading.
And the capital wants revenge.

In Catching Fire, the second novel of the Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, testing her more than ever before...and surprising readers at every turn.

*sigh* I loved The Hunger Games. I never know if I'm going to like the second book as well as the first but I like to continue on with a series to see how it finishes. I couldn't wait to get this one. I reserved it from my library and got it last week but I was so busy that I didn't do it justice. I could only read it in bits and pieces much of the time and it was so hard to tear myself away. I wanted to do nothing but read, read, read but of course I didn't want it to end either!

**double sigh** I loved Catching Fire. I won't get into a recap here because I'm afraid I'll post a spoiler if you haven't read this series yet. There was plenty of action, adventure and strong emotions. It was really, really, really good. Really. It's going to be an extremely long wait for the final book in this trilogy.


  1. My friend lent me these two books yesterday, so now I'm scurrying to finish what I'm reading right now! I want to start these so badly!

  2. I think I'm the only one who hasn't read this books. They're here in my stacks, but I haven't had time to get to them.

  3. Really? Was it good? DId you like it even a little? Just teasing y'all! Sounds like a lot of enjoyment for you. That's wonderful!

  4. I really enjoyed this second book in the series. I think its a pretty strong middle book for a trilogy.

  5. I've finally put these two books on my reading list, but I need to wait until all the hype dies down. My expectations are too high right now!
