In May, I had the most amazing opportunity to attend the BookExpo America in New York City. Not only was I going to see publishers and authors in person but I was also able to snag a ARC of Catching Fire the sequel to Suzanne Collins’s amazing book Hunger Games. Not only was I able to pick up a copy but I was also able to get it signed by Collin’s herself. Needless to say I was uber excited! I’d been looking forward to this book ever since I finished Hunger Games a short time before the expo.

Catching Fire picks up about six months after the end of Hunger Games and it quickly takes off in a direction that I couldn’t have predicted. I was blown away by the story and thought that it went above and beyond the amazingness that was Hunger Games. I couldn’t put this book down and can’t believe that I have to wait another YEAR for the next book to come out. I need to know what is going to happen next. Now I know I normally say more about a book but I don’t want to spoil anyone about what’s to come. Just know that if you liked Hunger Games then you’ll love this book as well. Catching Fire is a fast-paced, breathless read that leaves you panting and wanting more. Its a book that will stay with you and make you think.

    My husband, who is not a reader, devoured this and The Hunger Games, in a few days time. He can’t wait to get his hands on the 3rd book in the trilogy.

    I can’t wait to read this one. I was at BEA but I didn’t get a copy. I hadn’t any desire to read The Hunger Games at the time, and I could kick myself now!
