Weekend Book Club: Catching Fire

After devouring The Hunger Games last week, I sure was happy to have the sequel, CATCHING FIRE, on hand.

And yes, it was every bit as good as The Hunger Games.

Here's the blurb:

After winning the brutal Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen returns to her district, hoping for a peaceful future. But Katniss starts to hear rumours of a deadly rebellion against the Capitol. A rebellion that she and Peeta have helped to create.

As Katniss and Peeta are forced to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. Unless Katniss and Peeta can convince the world that they are still lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying...

Loved the deeper characterisation in this book, as we get to know Katniss and Peeta more.

And while I was shocked they had to enter the arena again for another round of games, I found those pages flying by till the surprising end. More please!

MOCKINGJAY, the 3rd and final book in this amazing trilogy, is released in 3 days.
Watch the stampede!

What are you reading this week?

Well, sniff, I'm on the last Marcelli book, The Marcelli Princess. Sigh, I'm going to miss the family. . . until I pick up the next book on my pile. LOL Even though I'm a little past half way done, I think I can safely say that my favorite with the hero/ine romance book was the third, which should be Brenna Marcelli's book. But for the whole family dynamic part of the story, the fourth. But I guess that is the "danger" of reading a series all the way through, one right after another -- it's like they become your family! :)

I love it when the sequels don't disappoint. I loved the Marcelli family too. I have to admit that even though they're on my shelf I still miss them. If only that series could have gone on forever.

Lois said...

Well, if they did go one forever, we'd probably end up getting sick of them. LOL So, yep, now they are on the shelves, can always reread them, which is a good thing. :)


PS - will be starting Lisa Kleypas's Love in the Afternoon later, so, yep, back to a historical for the weekend! LOLOL
