The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins 

  
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins; 374 pages

Seventy four years ago the thirteen districts of Panem rebelled against the Capitol in an attempt to end their suffering. As a reminder of their failure, the Capitol forces each of the twelve remaining districts to send a male and a female between the ages of twelve and eighteen to compete in The Hunger Games. These “tributes” are selected at random and paraded in front of the Capitol and the districts before being thrown into an arena and being forced to fight to the death. This years tribute from District 12 is Katniss Everdeen.

Forever my favorite dystopian novel. Suzanne Collins perfected this genre with this series. It is such a unique story with fantastic characters. In my opinion, it never gets old. This is also one of the few occasions where there is a love triangle in the story and I don’t mind. Mostly because her feelings for both boys doesn’t impair her overall judgement. Katniss knows what needs to be done and does it. Yes, she can be annoying at times but she’s a 16 year old girl being thrown into an arena to fight to the death. I’ll let it slide with her. 

I’m planning on rereading Catching Fire soon and I’m really excited because it is my favorite book in the series!
