The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Wassup People! Here I am again, with The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins! This book was sooo intense and kept me hanging on till the very end, and it just made me even more wanna read the next book! BLURB:
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel, and it keeps the Districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.
Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before--and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity, and life against love.

This book was wait BEYOND that. It was like no other book I've ever read, but some parts were similar to the short story, The Lottery and it was like a movie. Action. Romance. Violent Deaths. What more could you ask for? It was so cute though with Peeta (again, seriously I love him) and Katniss, although it was so mean of what she thought she was doing right, but might end up hurting him...y'all understanding what I'm trying to say? don't bother answering cause even I'm not sure.
When you're reading the Hunger Games, I felt as if I was an audience member or NO. Even being part of these violent, bloodthirsty games. It was as if I felt as if that these games were the only basis of my survival when I was reading this book. I wanted to get through and know what happens so badly, I felt I was fighting for my life. Huh, so much for getting caught up in a book eh?
I wanna read the 2nd book, Catching Fire, REAAAALLLLYYY badly! I heard it was so emotional from a bunch of people, but it would have even been better to read it immediately after reading the 1st book. So that's a tip for those of you who haven't read this book yet, READ THEM together...not so far apart. And I also recommend reading The Lottery (it should be available online) and seeing how the connection between these two things is. 
I gotta go now, and finish a few other things, but be sure to come back for these reviews (hopefully) coming up soon: Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer; Hunted by PC and Kristin Cast; and maybe even Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins! so come back for those (it's not like I'm going anywhere soon though :P) and bye for now! 


  1. I love the hunger games! I can't wait for the movie to come out!

  2. This book is absolutely amazing! I couldn't put this book down! After finishing I had to read the second and last book right after. I'm team Peeta all the way xD

  3. Love the book! This book is the reason I delve into YA now :) I read all three books in the series and seen the movie. It was awesome but the book is better :)

  4. LOVE hunger games and catching fire. I'm a bit disappointed in Mockingjay, though. But this trilogy is epic. :)
    Great review!

  5. I loved this book! I too thought it was so original and unlike anything I had ever read. It was so amazing that I found myself talking to everyone about it and trying to get them to read it! I loved the whole series and am sorry it's over! Thanks for the great review!

  6. Eeps! I just watched the movie and that was so good I can't wait for them to finish the second one. And I've added HG to my book wishlist since I haven't read them before.

    HG is also like a Japanese movie I once watched. About survival of the fittest. That was brutal and gory!

  7. *swoons* PEETTAAAAAA! Omg I loved him...It was so intense and thrilling and ahhh..I have the whole series and have watched the film twice... ;) x

  8. Great review! I have heard so many good reviews about this book, but Haven't had the chance to read it yet
