Catching Fire

By Suzanne Collins

Statement: The second instalment in the Hungar Games trilogy. I’ve had this on the shelf for a while because I thought it might be a bit grim, and I often want to keep it a bit lighter … I know, the books I’ve just talked about aren’t lighter.  A great read. I want to break my vow-to-me of finishing all unread books on my bedside shelf before I buy a new book, and just go out and buy the third book.

Plot: Katniss and Peeta have been back from the games for about six months, when they have to tour the districts as the last game winners. Creepy President Snow gives Katniss a challenge, something is up in the districts, and then there are new games.

For me it started, not slowly, but I wondered if it was just going to be Katniss coping with her new life. Then it started getting bleaker in Disteict 12, and then more games, and finally hope. I want to read the next book soon.

Read if: You like kick-ass young adult fiction, and dystopian futures.
