2012 eclectic reader challenge: may - youth fiction

This month's Eclectic Reader Challenge genre was Youth Fiction. I decided to try reading the Hunger Games Books, since I enjoyed the movie!

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2)Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This series is wonderful - it reminds me of the way I felt about the "Tomorrow When The War Began" series by John Marsden when I was a teen.
The simple, unadorned writing style somehow sucks you into the horrors of the dystopian society in which Katniss Everdeen lives, while still being an easy to read page-turner. I saw the movie first, but I am so glad I decided to read the books too!
...oh and Katniss Everdeen would kick Bella Swan's soppy useless butt! ;)
