Book Review: "The Hunger Games" Trilogy

I read a lot. And it's not often that a book can keep me up until 2 a.m. anymore. Or cause me to forget my entire to-do list, which includes putting the clean sheets back on the bed, which I forlornly discover when Jarrod and I finally traipse up to bed at 2 a.m. But "Catching Fire" and "Mockingjay" and their predecessor "The Hunger Games" were in a different league.

I don't want to tell you too much about these novels because it'll spoil the ending of book 1, "The Hunger Games." But I will say that I was totally impressed with Suzanne Collins' unpredictable, original and page-turning plot. The fact that the books are published by Scholastic and the intended audience is probably teenagers shouldn't turn you away. Other than the fact that the main characters are in their late teens and that there's no outright sex and no swearing, you'd never know the books weren't written for an adult audience. I found the story to be gripping and thought-provoking and I highly recommend the trilogy! Read my review on "The Hunger Games" for more!


  1. I'm reading the "Hunger Games" now. Totally enjoying it. Plan to read the other two in the series also.

  2. Just finished up "MockingJay". What a great trilogy to read. Nothing like you would expect. Grabs you from the very beginning right up to the very last page. You won't be disappointed in reading these books


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
