I’m still playing catch up with these, so here you have Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.
This was a great follow-up to The Hunger Games. It was fast-paced and filled with conspiracies, which is right up my alley.
That’s all, really. I’ll keep my ranting commentary for when I get to my Mockingjay post… because what the f—.

SPARKS ARE IGNITING.
FLAMES ARE SPREADING.
AND THE CAPITAL WANTS REVENGE.
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol – a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.
Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest that she’s afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she’s not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol’s cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can’t prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying. Katniss is about to be tested as never before.

I don’t remember much now about my experience reading these books (and I’ve forgotten which parts were in the books but not the movies, and the other way around) but I do remember the tension and anxiety I felt while reading the end of the series. I mean. Yikes. What the f— indeed, but it also hooked me in and didn’t let me put the book down.
Exactly how I felt.
I must admit, I haven’t seen any of the movies yet, though…
I read all the books before the movies came out, but I remember thinking at the time of the first movie that it was the best book-to-screen adaptation I’d seen yet. It just felt right. (I don’t remember what I thought about the other movies, though…)
Sounds promising. I really have to go check them out.
I hope they held up! I haven’t seen them since the first time in the cinema.
