Catching Fire After flying through The Hunger Games, I put a desperate call out for the second book in the series, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. My brother luckily had the book & gave it to me before his wedding shower. I started reading on our way back from VA & even with a busy week of work & TTC, I finished it by Friday.

I’d love to tell y’all everything about Catching Fire & why I enjoyed it, but I also don’t want to spoil it for anyone. I hate it when I know what’ll happen before I even open the book thanks to reading or hearing about it elsewhere. So yeah, this is a post to say that you should just take my word on it. You’ll enjoy the action, the young adult romance, & the family dynamics. What I enjoyed about the first book is somewhat repeated in the second book, but it didn’t come across as boring or repetitive. And while I didn’t speed-read it quite as quick as the first in the series, once you read Hunger Games you’re going to HAVE to know what happens next as I did.

Now I’m already a third of the way through Mockingjay & I can’t figure out how they’re going to wrap the whole series up with just 260 pages left to go.
