"The hunger games" by Suzanne Collins is a thrilling book about a girl named Katniss Everdeen who lives in a futuristic world. In this world, she lives in a country with 12 districts.

I reread the Hunger Games earlier this year and then again in October. I have my problems with it (first person narration probably being the biggest), but it's one of the better YA books I've read. Very formulaic but here it works.

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS I'm surprised at how well this book stood up to rereading. Katniss didn't annoy me like she did the first (and possibly second) time I read the book. I found the book very suspenseful even though I knew everything that was going to happen. I had to take a LOT of bre...

It doesn't happen often that I even consider picking up a book when I've already seen the movie, since the pictures in my head while reading will forever be influenced by the film and the actors, but in this case reading the book lends another layer of intensity to an already gripping and moving sto...
