REVIEW: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

*Spoilers for Hunger Games*
Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark miraculously survive the Hunger Games. You would think that this would make Katniss happy. But nothing is the same when she goes home. Gail acts indifferent to her and Peeta is giving her the cold shoulder. And there is the overwhelming danger of rebellion in the districts which could have been caused by Katniss and Peeta angering the Capitol. The time comes for the Victory tour and Katniss and Peeta must prove to the districts and the capitol that they are in love or the consequences may be dire. Not to mention that this years Hunger Games falls on it 75th anniversary or the Quarter Quell and that could change all the rules to the games.

OMG. I got this book today in the mail FINALLY! And I just could not put it down. Every chapter seemed to have a little cliffhanger that made me keep reading. Suzanne Collins is an amazing writing and paints an amazingly clear picture of characters and their surroundings. Not to mention her creativity. When I thought I new what was going to happen I was continuously surprised with the outcome. I think I might have liked this book even better then Hunger games if that is possible. But there is kind of a major cliffhanger at the end unfortunately. It is going to be a long wait.

Without giving to much away: Who do you think Katniss should finally be with Peeta or Gail?

I'm on Team Peeta!
