Suzanne Collins The Hunger Games Trio
Suzanne Collins Books
Suzanne Collins is the author of several best selling books for young adults. She wrote the Underland Chronicles as well as the The Hunger Games. This review is about The Hunger Games series. The series includes three books. Book one is The Hunger Games. Book two is Catching Fire and the third is Mockingjay which will be released in just a few days. The Hunger Games is loved by both teen boys (because of the action) and teen girls (because of the romance). I read these books myself and loved them. My son begged me to read them because he thought it was unfair that I read Twilight as recommended by my daughters. So, as requested, I read the books, or should I say I devoured them. My son was right. This is a terrific series.
