Trilogy of Hunger Games

Hunger Games Trilogy is a young adult adventure series written by Suzanne Collins. The three titled books in this set are Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay. These books can be bought in a series, separately either paperback or hardcover or as eBooks for a Kindle or Nook.

I didn't read this until March of this year 2012 when the movie was coming out. I was about 4 chapters into the first book when I ended up going to the Hunger Games movie. This wasn't a normal read for me but I wanted to try something new and I'd heard so much about this series. After seeing the movie I was even more enthused to finish reading the Hunger Games book because I knew there would be even more details to the story. The plot is tense, suspenseful, provoking, imaginative and heartwarming. I couldn't put it down till it was finished. I couldn't wait to start reading the second book Catching Fire and then the last book Mockingjay. I read all three of these book on my Kindle Fire and they were totally awesome. Don't miss out!
