Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins


Mockingjay is the third and final book in the Hunger Games Trilogy. It begins with Katniss learning how to live in District 13. Peeta is still in the Capital under the control of President Snow. While Katniss is returning back to full health, the soldiers from 13 manage to get Peeta out of the Capital and back to District 13. While in the Capital, President Snow has transformed Peeta into a Katniss-hating machine. They work slowly and patiently to try to get Peeta back to his normal self. This book is about how Katniss, Gale, Peeta and other rebels work to free the Districts from President Snow. At the end of the book, the author finally had Katniss making her decision on who she loves – Peeta or Gale. I believe this was the best book of the three with all the action and drama going on. There was a lot of suspense in the book and it was very hard to put down. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins


Catching Fire is the second book in the Hunger Games Trilogy. It begins the story with Katniss’ life after the Hunger Games and about her trying to adjust to life back in District 12. She is still torn with the idea of whether or not she really does love Peeta after the games. The Hunger Games the next year is a special one – the Quarterly Quell. It celebrates the 75th Hunger Games. What more to celebrate the anniversary than to have two from each of the victors from the past Hunger Games go back to the arena! District 12 has only had 3 winners – Haymitch, Peeta, and Katniss. This means that Katniss will be going back in and Peeta takes Haymitch’s place as Tribute. This Hunger Games is different. You can tell that not very many people are happy about the way Tributes were chosen. President Snow visits Katniss before the games and tells her she needs to convince the world of her love for Peeta. This book ends on a shocking comment that drives you to read the next book to figure out what exactly is happening. Just like the first book, I would highly reccomend this book to anyone. It is a little “Twilight-y” and has the drama of “Who is Katniss going to choose – Peeta or Gale?” Other than the little drama there it is a fantastic book that keeps you desiring to read it.
