Uglie Seires all the way. i read both, but def. like uglies more!!!


Lauren Hunger Games!!!! although I loved the Uglies series too!

Uglies. If nothing else, I thought the writing was better. Plus, for once, the sort-of-love-triangle was about a boy, and a well-developed boy at that. I'm getting sick of the idiotic girl caught between two boys.

Neither series is my favorite, though.

Melanie Well, I'm only just now on Pretties, so I will see how this one goes, but 1st book to 1st book in both series, I thought Book 1 of Hunger Games was better. I will weigh in again after I've gotten into Pretties further.


Anna It's Hunger Games i thought that Hunger Games had a better plot and better writing and that the story was more engaging. I did enjoy Uglies but I loved the Hunger Games!!!


Poppy The Hunger Games! I lost interest in Uglies after the 2nd book...


Tatiana Uglies, it was better written and I loved the plot better.


Menna The Hunger Games. I would pick The Hunger Games over Uglies, any day!

My thoughts exactly ;) no offence to Hunger Games fans but those books weren't my cup of tea ;)

So true, I only enjoyed the first book in the Hunger Games, while i enjoyed all the 'Uglies' books.


Darlene Def The Hunger Games. Uglies was good, but I thought the sequels were a total letdown :(

still UGLY SERIES... it was
1. Written WAY WAY WAY better
2. Had a WAY WAY WAY better plot
3. More relatable
4. All the books were AWESOME!
5. All-around better
Hunger Games was WAY WAY WAY too slow, and too gory, kind of a boring plot, (even with all the killing) didn't like the characters too much. Also, the only good book was the 1st, the otheres weren't even good.


SarahO I would say Hunger Games hands down. Much better written, flowed better and had better plot.
I sort of enjoyed Uglies when I was reading it but afterwards when I was writing the review I couldn't think of a single reason why I liked it. But it was a fun read.

Brooke (The Cover Contessa) I did not like Uglies. I read Pretties, felt the same way. I will try out Specials, but I am highly doubtful that I will like it, since it's the same writer with no writing ability. The characters were not well developed and they were pretty boring. I do not find that the main female character is a strong female at all.
I am seeing now that Uglies won an award! WTH? I just do not think it deserved it. I thought the writing style was horrible. This author needs to use a thesaurus!!!

HUNGER GAMES IS AWESOME!!!!! i hate uglies, it kind of bored me!


Sarah I'm just on Pretties right now in the Uglies series and Catching Fire in the Hunger Games. So far I'm in between which one I like better.

It's really hard to choose! I agree with you. But I don't know.


Jeanette The Hunger Games by far. I mean, no book series that starts off by saying, "The early summer sky was the color of cat vomit" is going to be a good series unless the author has some serious brain rewiring.

LOL!

I read the series, wanted to see what others thought. I didn't like it. And it's asking our opinions, so I gave mine.


Janie HUNGER GAMES! no question. I didn't enjoy the Uglies series as much.

K, i was just asking. I do the same thing with the HG, i didn't like it, but I love the word game on it.

HAhahaha. Yeah.


Rachel Wahlin There is no way that I would say that Uglies is better than The Hunger Games! HUNGER GAMES RULE!!!!!!
