I was SO right not to read this sequel to The Hunger Games until the third and final installment was released! The second is just as good as the first and I can’t wait to see how the whole thing ends. I literally just finished the last page and paused only long enough to post this little blurb before I walk to the bookshelf and crack Mockingjay open. Seriously, if you haven’t read the Hunger Games trilogy it is well worth reading. Yes, it is a young adult series but that just means it reads fast. The Hunger Games happen once a year in Panem to remind the Districts that the Capitol is still in charge and can still make them pay for any disobedience 75 years after the civil war. Each of the twelve Districts must send one male and one female between the ages of 12 and 18 to the games to fight each other until there is only one left alive. Yes, it is a book – well, three actually – about kids killing each other but it is not gory enough to be considered horror and it is gripping to hear the story from the first person point of view of one of the “Tributes” inside the arena. I can’t say any more without including spoilers so just trust me and go read them!
