Catching Fire (YA)
Book #104 Read in 2013
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (YA)
This is the second book in the dystopian trilogy. I loved it. In this book, Peeta and Katniss return home to District 12 after winning The Hunger Games but their happiness is short lived. They are told that all surviving past victors will have to play another round of the survival game. They cannot believe their bad luck. Haymitch is trying to help them select allies but in the end, they know there can only be one survivor.
This book is full of action and fast paced. Katniss and Peeta still have a complicated relationship--their public and private personas struggle to co-exist. The other competitors are more fleshed out than in the first book and all bring an interesting element to the book. I have Mockingjay in the TBR pile to get to soon....I have to see how this all wraps up.
