    Summary : In the last book, (The Hunger Games), Katniss won the Hunger Games with her district partner Peeta Mellark. Katniss knows this is not the end of it though, because the only reason she won was because of her trick with the berries. The Capitol isn’t happy, and they are convinced Katniss and Peeta are planning a rebellion. So, to keep their image, a Quarter Quarrel with twice as many tributes is started. The problem is, the tributes are victors from the previous Hunger Games, so that means Katniss must go back into the arena with Peeta. Will Katniss win again with Peeta by her side?

    Evaluation : I thought some parts were good enough to keep you turning the page. But, some parts were dull, and this book wasn’t as exciting as the first one. Also, many confusing things happen that make you wonder. This is why it’s a great transition between the first and last book.

    Summary: Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark were the winners of the 74th Hunger Games. While on tour around the 12 districts and the Capital Katniss finds that the rumors about another rebellion may be true…and she’s the face of the rebellion! It could have been bad enough having President Snow want her and Peeta dead for supposedly starting the rebellion, but Katniss finds her worst nightmare comming true. For the 75th Hungergames, she’s forced back into the arena with Peeta and this time she won’t be able to save them both. Katniss just wants to protect Peeta, and Peeta wants nothing but to make sure Katniss finds her way back home to her family. Throughout all this time, Katniss finds that she is really in love with Peeta, even when he announces on live television that she is pregnant.

    Evaluation: I have fallen completely in love with the Hunger Games Trilogy. I read all three books in one whole weekend.

    Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.

    Summary: Catching Fire is the second book in The Hunger Games trilogy. In this book Katniss and Peeta go on the victory tour around the Districts. A little bit after the tour, they announce the theme for the 75th annual Hunger Games. To their surprise, two of the past victors from each district have to play. The only victors from District 12 are Peeta, Haymitch, and Katniss. Katniss and Peeta end up back in the arena. This is where they meet past victors like Finnick Oddair and Johanna Mason. After battles with mutant orangutans and deathly fog, they try to defeat the capitol but end up blowing it up and leaving the reader at a cliff hanger for the next book.

    Evaluation: This book is amazing. I love the whole series. It’s well-written, intriguing and suspenseful. It leaves you wanting more.

    5 Stars.

    Summary: In The Hunger Games Katniss wins the hunger game with Peeta. The two winners from District 12 are suspected to be starting a uprising against the government. Katniss and Peeta are sent into the arena again. Then Katniss was not even planning a revolution against the government.

    Summary: It was a pretty good book and was well written. It was half and half action and boring. I felt like the writer spent too much time writing about what was happening rather than moving through the book. I don’t think it was as good as the first book.

    Summary: Catching Fire is suspenseful and very intriguing! At the end of the first book, Katniss and Peeta both win the Hunger Game, which angers the Capitol, because that is not the way the games are supposed to work. Catching Fire starts after that point. Once Katniss gets home she is expecting fame and happiness… That is definitely not what she received. Her longtime friend, named Gale, doesn’t talk to her much anymore, and Peeta has completely turned his back on her. You think that is where it stops? No. That is just the beginning of the bad things that are starting to happen to her. Her district is talking about a rebellion against the Capitol; which they think Katniss and Peeta started. Later on in the book they both find themselves back in the same situation that they were in not too long ago: Back in the arena. If they don’t carry on with the “act” they were playing in the last game, they and their district will face terrible consequences. During the fight they both stick by each other’s sides and watch out for each other. That is until Peeta tells Katniss that she has to survive. Not him. But, she doesn’t go for that…

    Evaluation: This book was amazing! I really liked how suspenseful it was! I also thought it was a great book to follow the first book: The Hunger Games. I never found myself confused, and I never found myself not wanting to continue reading. READ THIS BOOK (:

    Summary: In the last story, Katniss had come out of the Hunger Games alive, with Peeta, and everything was supposed to be alright from there on out. Well, unfortunately, it was not; after a while, the government was a bit irked by how the two were able to survive the Hunger Games and had suspicions that the two would cause a revolution. The government panics and decides to try and have Katniss and Peeta killed. After the rumors had spread enough, they did have another Hunger Games event, but this time the arena was much much smaller. The thing that got to you as the reader was that a revolt was not completely because of Katniss’s victory it was just an impending event.

    Evaluation: Meh. Most of the book was just talk about what was happening with the government, and it had less action than the first story. Don’t get me wrong, it is still a good book, just not as much action as the first one, and that was a bit disappointing for me.

    Summary: In the last book Katniss Everdeen won the Hunger Games along with Peeta Mellark, also from District 12. It’s now supposed to be happily ever after, right? Wrong. During this book, the capitol is sure that Katniss and Peeta are planning a rebellion, and the capitol isn’t happy. The Hunger Games start again but with a twist this time. Petta and Katniss go back into the arena. It turns out a rebellion was being planned by everyone but Katniss.

    Evaluation: I loved this book almost as much as the first. In my opinion, it was really well written. The last book wasn’t as great, and I wasn’t happy with the ending. But this book was intriguing and exciting.
