The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins. 4 stars. Each year, children from the 12 impoverished districts of Panem are sent to the wealthy Capitol to participate in the Hunger Games—a fight to the death on national television. Best Thing: Defiance. Worst Thing: Clothes (Please, shut up about the clothes).

I think I know what the author is trying to do with the clothes thing—the main character, Katniss, is sixteen, very poor, and doesn't often have nice things, so she notices the clothes. But seriously, this girl is in a contest that involves killing other children. Except for a couple of notable outfits, I just do not care.

I'm going to be extra-vague with the Hunger Games reviews, because they are awesome and you should definitely read them, so I don't want to spoil you. I was a little wary of these books because of all the hype they're getting right now, but it turns out they deserve it.

Read my review of Catching Fire, part two of The Hunger Games Trilogy.
Read my review of Mockingjay, part three of The Hunger Games Trilogy.

Meg and a few of the other girls at Borders ADORE these books. This is the first time anyone has talked about it in a way that makes me want to read it. Also Meg says that there is another series that the characters of that one show up in these and these characters show up in them. They are never main characters and they aren't really important to the plot but apparently it's really cool and well done.

Also the pictures look good. Not blobs on top of other blobs
