Author of The Hunger Games Series
I just finished Catching Fire, and when I say just finished, I mean I read the last word of the book ten minutes ago. I just couldn't wait to blog about it. I know I should probably wait a few hours and think about it a little, but I won't because I loved it! For me, Catching Fire was even better than The Hunger Games.
Katniss isn't the only good thing about this book. I really like all the characters especially Peeta. The story itself was riveting to me. The book is full danger, sadness, humor, happiness, anger and yes sappy love stuff, and I felt it all.
I love to read, and I find that I enjoy most books I read. But I really love when I come across books that make me remember why I'm so passionate about reading--the books and characters that stay with you long after you've finished the book. Yes I know this is YA fiction, and I am no longer a young adult. I am a 35 year old mother, but a great story is a great story no matter how old you are.
Now I'm off to the rest of my day, eagerly anticipating later this evening when I can dive into Mockingjay which at this moment is on my kitchen counter.
