    me and teen fiction are now irrevocably bound. what started as some kind of screamin jay hawkins voodoo spell and me helpless to resist has blossomed into something - a magical love like between a child and a vampire... okay, so i still refuse to read that one. but this series is just ...

    i'm gonna dangle some bait here: catching fire is the sloppy follow-up to hunger games, which seems to have been written in the frenzied fever of the author's realization that she had a megahit on her hands. the pacing is way off, the plotting is mechanical, the characterization is...

    Don?t you hate it when you accidentally start a political uprising? Katniss survived the Hunger Games, but she?s inadvertently become a symbol of defiance that is inspiring some in the twelve Districts to begin pushing back against the despotic Capital. After President Snow thre...

    I can't review this without being spoilery, so... 1. AAAAAAAAAAAAAH 2. The one thing I didn't like about this book is the part where Katniss finds out she has to go back to the Hunger Games. I think there should have been more of a pause there--for disbelief, for Katniss maybe tr...

    Spoilers? Oh boy am I going to spoil the SHIT out of this for you! So I got bored about halfway through and because I was bored I started focusing on the irritating things. So, Katniss asks a lot of fucking questions. This book should be titled Curious Katniss and the Game that she...

    Update 6/9/12 ** some spoilers..** but if you haven't read this by now, shame on you. I know it's popular and over-saturated, but it's not Twilight...At all. Read it asap. Re-reading the series because...I just want to, darn it. I bought the books for that reason, right? It was ...

    I went to see Inglourious Basterds a couple of times this past month, and there is that scene where Eli Roth and Omar Doom are in the theater, and they dress themselves up to look like waiters and then whip around the corner and kill the two Nazi guards to some funny Ennio Morriconi(is...

    I think I'm probably the last person to finally get around reading this. The book has like 600 some five star reviews on amazon, the debate of Team Gale vs. Team Peeta reigns supreme on my twitter. It's the series that just won't go away. And now I understand why. I must admit, w...

    Sparks fly in the second volume of Suzanne Collins? blockbuster Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire. Victory in the 74th games has not been all that sweet for surprise double-victors Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark. And it is extremely sour for the reigning government. Katniss had...

    I think I wouldn't be feeling quite so disappointed by this book if The Hunger Games hadn't been quite so close to perfect. But there it is. Must be hard to compete with yourself when you set the bar so high. Where The Hunger Games is a tightly-plotted, fast-paced dystopian thrille...

    This is most possibly the WORST (or best depending what you go on) cliffhanger I have encountered in all my reading days. It leaves you more than just hanging, you are grasping for your life on a thread that is fraying and there is nothing to do but hold on (well metaphorically of co...

    Oh, snap. She DID NOT just do that. This is not a cliffhanger people, this is inhumane. Like hanging on for dear life by a spider web thin thread totally butt naked (you know that makes it worse)! It's so worth it though. Quick overview: Catching Fire starts up not far from where ...

    Catching Fire was one of my most anticipated books of 2009. I loved it's predecessor, The Hunger Games and was so hopeful for this intstallment. I wasn't disappointed per se, but it did fail to meet my expectations. Here's a few reasons why... I don't know what it is with authors an...

    I'll keep this review short, mainly because I don't want to give out any spoilers. After all, I didn't read any before opening the book and I am glad I didn't, many events in the book caught me by a complete surprise and I loved it! "Catching Fire" is a sequel equal in quality to "Hung...

    So I've finished the book and all I can say is: wow! Catching fire has broken my heart with the events that have unfolded and I am desperately holding out for more. As usual, the writing is flawless, the characters beyond fantastic and the plot will leave you on the edge of you...

    Is it just me, or is anyone else really starting to like Haymitch? Bet you didn't see this coming. Moi, Kira, reading Catching Fire and giving it four stars! The Hunger Games earned an uneasy 2.5 stars from me. The most annoying part? I wasn't 100% sure why. Katniss, probably. Th...

    Binge reading? Me? Nah... >_> Ok, so to refresh the memory of recent events, I watched the final Hunger Games Saturday without a clue who the fuck any of those people are. I read Hunger Games #1 yesterday, and loved it. Now onto book 2. Loved it too, is it any surprise? ...

    The Hunger Games trilogy continues with Catching Fire. This is a book that was hard to put down. I nibbled at it for a few days because I was busy with other things but once the weekend came, I did little else until it was finished. Taking up where The Hunger Games left off, author...

    Every so often, I select a Young Adult book to read. After I read the Hunger Games, I had to finish the trilogy... I mean, how could you not, right? Let's back up a bit... I love challenges. I am totally in my element watching serial killers on TV shows. (Umm... I didn't mean th...

    What do you write about the perfect book? That it's perfect? You already know that. Or maybe you think it's a bad book, and that's ok, too. Catching Fire is whatever you consider it to be. For me it's perfection. Or as close to perfection as a novel can be. It made me tear up and it ma...

    ?My nightmares are usually about losing you. I'm okay once I realize you're here.? Catching Fire is the best of the series even though I re-read it this time, I still insist that it's such a gut-wrenching story to read. What happens in CF is beyond cruelty, Katniss is not su...

    This book annoyed me so much. Not just because it was bad. No. But, because it made me want to storm through it to see what happened in the ending. I hated the effect it had on me because this books is terrible and not worthy of my enthralment. When I finished it, I looked back and rea...
