Book 22 - Catching Fire

My twenty-second book is Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy. I loved The Hunger had action, drama, suspense, and a love story all rolled into one book. I couldn't wait to read the second book (and I was very excited to find the entire trilogy in a hard-cover boxed set...the last one!). This book did not disappoint! It is heart pounding from beginning to end. It picks up right where The Hunger Games left off, after Katniss and Peeta have arrived home and are trying to deal with the aftermath of rebelling against the Capitol. The President pays her a visit, telling her that she must convince not just everyone in all of the districts, but also him that she and Peeta are in love. When that doesn't happen, he comes up with a twist on the Hunger Games (on account of this year being the Quarter Quell, the event that happens every 25 years that makes the Hunger Games even worse than they usually are). And the twist for this year's is one no one, including the reader, sees coming. The twists in this book are mindblowing: you honestly have no idea what might happen...and the ending is the most shocking event of all...
