Enjoy the book, Ella!!


Melissa Richardson (goodreadscommellea77) | 6 comments Read this series when it came out and it is definitely an amazing series! Love the books, love the movies, LOVE it all!!


Maggie the Muskoka Library Mouse (mcurry1990) A good book for those who like fast-paced, dystopian novels. Katniss is a strong heroine, though I wish Peeta would man up a bit.

Lol.

Melissa Eisenmeier (carpelibrumbooks) | 80 comments I read all three books, but I must be getting tired of the whole dystopian scene. I didn't like the books as much as I did the Harry Potter books.

Same here!


Bonita (bonitareads) One of my favorite book series


Skyland (alicemccrazypants) | 38 comments I'm in the mood for debate/discussion and this series is one of the few that's pretty fresh in my mind. I'll use spoiler tags just in case there's anyone browsing who hasn't read...

Rich Thomas | 493 comments What I think about this is that the first book was FIRE (no pun intended). But the second book, was a bit flat and the last book made me feel like dying in a corner... yeah, to be honest, just read book one, and maybe two.


Marisa Parker Liked this series and liked the movies. It was sad in the last one but also ended well. I suppose it is like life - highs and lows!


Rae of Sunshine I like the series a lot! It was a fun read!

Niti | 18 comments AMAZING NOVEL!


Rae of Sunshine I agree! Great books.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... Only Book One for me... I reread it so many times. I think I like the author's style in One is better than in the rest of the book... But that is my opinion...


Rae of Sunshine That's cool. I liked all of them but everyone thinks differently so that's fine.


message 22: by Rich (new) - rated it 5 stars

Rich Thomas | 493 comments :) Which was your favorite book from the series?


Rae of Sunshine That's a hard question. I think the first one or the second one. The third one was a little but disappointing

Agree with your last sentence... the end seemed... rushed, in my opinion


Rae of Sunshine Yeah I think so too.

Rich Thomas | 493 comments I believe that Suzanne Collins should right a series in Haymitch's perspective and his Game experience.

* I may have butchered his name


Rae of Sunshine I agree! That would be so cool!

Rich Thomas | 493 comments ~W㊉NÐERGIRL~ wrote: "I agree! That would be so cool!"

I was thinking that we could know what Haymitch* was thinking about the girl he teamed up with. WAS HE IN LOVE? IS THAT WHY HE DIDN'T MARRY ANYONE? So many unanswered questions.


Rae of Sunshine Yeah there's a ton of things about him that we'll never know.


message 30: by Rich (new) - rated it 5 stars

Rich Thomas | 493 comments Personally, I want to know why he started drinking...


Rae of Sunshine Oh yeah that too! I bet there's a sad story behind that.

It mentioned that the mentors for the games do stuff to keep themselves occupied with all the lost tributes that where under their care... but it seems to me that Haymitch was drinking even before coaching...


Rae of Sunshine Yeah he showed up drunk at the choosing ceremony

When I read that scene, I had water in my mouth... My nose hurt afterward...


Rae of Sunshine Hah I imagine!

(Just realized we are having this conversation for about an hour)
Yeah... my favorite character goes to Haymitch!! He deserves an award... for something...


Rae of Sunshine Haha I agree! He was the best!

And really an hour? Crazy...

Who knows... Maybe it was... it's the Capitol...no one can be sure for sure...

Jojobean I loved the series. I love how kick butt Katniss is and how the romance between her and Peeta was not the main focus of the series. A favorite

Jojobean I'm not a fan of Gale though. I'm team Peeta


Steffi (steffiw) | 18 comments I actually prefered Gale over Peeta. So the way it ended bugged me lol


Maggie the Muskoka Library Mouse (mcurry1990) Really good book, though I was a tad disappointed in the movie.
