Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.
I didn't realize how much I liked Catching Fire until I was actually finished with it. There is so much that had to sink in. I had a lot of expectations of this book, especially since I enjoyed the first one so much, but I was not disappointed. I was angry at times but not disappointed. I loved the arena in this book too. Without giving too much away I will say that I thought it was much more creative than the arena in the first book. Catching Fire also introduced some lovely new characters. I have a soft spot for Wiress. She is just so lovely. And of course I love me some Finnick. He's dreamy and cocky and witty, all the things I love.
I'm about a third of the way through Mockingjay. It's waaaaaaaaay different and it may take me longer to read since I don't feel as in to it as the first two.
