Catching Fire (The Second Book of the Hunger Games) - Suzanne Collins

Summary from Good Reads: In Catching Fire, Suzanne Collins continues the amazing story of Katniss Everdeen in the phenomenal Hunger Games trilogy.  Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

I really enjoyed this book!  Thankfully, I finished reading The Hunger Games right before this so everything was still fresh in my mind.  The book begins by explaining the duties and formalities of the Victory Tour.  Katniss and Peeta have to adjust to life in Victory Village until the Quarter Quell is introduced.  They both go back to participate in the 75th Hunger Games all over again.  This time the games are different and the alliances that are created don't quite make sense until the end.

I just finished this book today and I already started Mockingjay, the final book of the Hunger Games!  It was delivered automatically to my Amazon kindle on Tuesday morning.  I am hoping to have this book done in about a week.  Please stop back for my review!!


  1. I just started Mockingjay too! Love this trilogy!

  2. Oooh, that sounds exciting, I may have to start reading from the beginning.
