The Hunger Games - Suzanne  Collins Wow. I initially thought I wouldn't enjoy reading a book about a bunch of teenagers fighting to the death in an arena, but this book really captivated me. I think I also related so well to Katniss and her need to be self-sufficient that this book felt really personal to me. I can't wait to keep reading this series but a part of me kind of wanted it to just end the way it did... or with a sense of more finality. I have a feeling that perhaps this book wasn't meant to be a trilogy but someone caught on to its marketing appeal. Either way, it's an incredibly engrossing read.
