Katniss survived the Hunger Games. Now the Capitol wants revenge. It’s payback time, and her chance of survival is even slimmer than ever… After winning the brutal Hunger Games, Katniss and Peeta have returned to District 12, hoping for a peaceful future. But their victory has caused rebellion to break out – and the Capitol has decided that someone must pay. As Katniss and Peeta are forced to visit the other districts on the Capitol’s Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. Unless they can convince the world that they are still lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying. Then comes the cruellest twist: the contestants for the next Hunger Games are announced, and Katniss and Peeta are forced into the arena once more…
My Rating: ★★★★★ (5 out of 5)
This is the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy.
You knew that right? I thought so.
These three books are all the rage at the moment, have been for a while and I’m sure they will be for a long time. I read the first book as a number of people recommended it. After reading The Hunger Games I downloaded Catching Fire straight away.
This starts as the first book ends and immediately falls into the same style and breathtaking pace. If anything I enjoyed this more than the original. Maybe because the characters were already developed and I felt comfortable picking up the next part of their journey. I like reading books where I’m already invested in the characters.
I tend to read a book over a week or so, fitting it in around work, writing and watching television. I started reading Catching Fire on a Monday and finished it on the Thursday. I couldn’t put it down.
I downloaded the third book in the series before I finished this and I started reading it the next day. I NEED to get to the end of this story. If you only read one trilogy this year. Make it this one.
This is the EIGHTH book I have read for this challenge. I classified the first book of the trilogy as Young Adult and I’ve checked the categories used for this book on Goodreads and a LOT fit it into the Science Fiction genre so I am classing this as my Science Fiction entry.
