Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Sparks are igniting, flames are spreading and the Capitol wants revenge.

Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol - a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.

Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.

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

I'm baaaack!
After a week in the hospital you would think that I would have had time to read to my heart's content, and that was what I thought when I was admitted last Saturday morning, the  only problem was, I was on such great pain killer's I couldn't focus on the words for to long.

It turns out when trying to find out why I couldn't keep anything down and deal with the pain that came with rupturing a large ovarian cyst and having your gallbladder stop working, that you have to be kept pretty doped up.

I was however determined to read at least one book, and I met my goal.

I know before I had said that I was never going to read this book, mainly because I just couldn't see what they intended to do after the first, and I still stand by it, so it came to no surprise when there was another Hunger Games in the second book just with a twist.

I neither disliked nor was I completely gaga over the second book. Perhaps it was the med's or perhaps it is just that I have such a hard time wrapping my head around the concept of the book.

It actually felt a little rushed to me, where as before the first in the series seemed to run smoothly with all the right amount of drama and action, this one felt as if I was on fast foreword constantly, with only snip it's of pause to where I could catch enough information to gather what was going on but not become emerged in the tale.

I didn't have a favorite in this book because unlike last time I didn't really get a connection to any of the character's.

3 Raven's. (It was alright.)

**All statements made above  are my own thoughts and opinions of the book, I was in no way compensated for my review.**


  1. I hope you're doing better now and having a speedy recovery.

    What irked me with this book was when the they redid the Tribute games and Katniss & Peeta were back in the game.

  2. I KNOW! That was what I figured would happen, and I was sad that I was correct. Thanks for the well wishes and for reading my REVIEW! ^-^
