On a snowy winter day, when our cheeks are rosy, and our lips chapped, our ideal day would be to go inside and watch a movie while drinking hot chocolate. While resting, we flip through Netflix and find a couple movies to watch and begin to watch them as we take a break from shoveling the heap of snow or from just playing outside. A bunch of movies like Inkheart, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and Harry Potter, are all really good movies that…Continue
The Hunger Games, in one sentence, is about a post-American sci-fi world called Panem, in which a common teenage girl, Katniss, finds herself fighting for her life in the cruel and deadly Hunger Games held yearly and enforced by the oppressive Capitol. No one in the Capitol has ever said anything against the Hunger Games. In fact, they enjoy watching them! A few of the twelve districts that Panem is made up of are called the “Career Districts” and the tributes from those districts are called…Continue

The book Ready Player One by Ernest Cline is an interesting book to say the least. It's a science fiction novel with a dystopian society feel to it. Now if you're not a science fiction fan, don't worry it's still a good read. I'm not a big science fiction fan myself but I liked this book. I liked it because it wasn't a setting so out there that I couldn't even picture it, like some science fiction books can get, it was almost believable. It takes place in 2044 and everything is…Continue
The reasons why I liked The Hunger Games is because I could not let the book down it was so good. During the Games there is some romance between Katniss and Peeta. There's action that I love in this book. When Katniss kills the boy from District one, I thought it was cool because she is used to killing animals. She tries to save…Continue

Recently I have been re-reading a The Hunger Games and have noticed a few things that I didn't realize the first time I read it. For example, the way the game makers form the "games" into a reality T.V. show is something I didn't quite fully comprehend the first read. Seneca and all the other game makers make "drama" happen to please the audience, which in reality, the audience is just the Capitol.
I also noticed the clues to Peeta and Katiniss' relationship during my…Continue
Have you ever felt like there is something that you think is completely unfair and there is nothing that you could possibly do to make it better. In the book The Hunger Games all of the people controlled by the government feel this way. The Hunger Games is a yearly event that randomly selects 2 people from each district (there are 12 districts) and those people have to fight for their lives until there is…Continue
After a year of hearing nonstop chatting from everyone, I finally read the Hunger Games! My friend, Koryn, was talking about it once. She told me that the book was filled with action and adventure and that she couldn’t take her eyes off of the book. I’ve heard many people say things like that, bit I didn’t know that Koryn would be right. Usually the books are much better than the movies. In my case… I felt like that…Continue
Tom Raines is an expert gamer. In fact he’s so good at it that the government has personally invited him to join an elite team of military fighters. These special teenagers are fighting in a war, but not any normal war. They’re fighting in outer space through the use of technology and computers, a…Continue

"My name is Katniss Everdeen. Why am I not dead? I should be," Katniss states. This basically sums up Mockingjay since, yet again, Katniss takes her chances with death and war in Mockingjay. Immediately after finishing Catching Fire, I was so excited to finally be reading the final book of the Hunger Games Series. Suzanne Collins does an absolutely outstanding job keeping readers drawn into the story. Every one of the books in this series is a fast-paced thriller…Continue

Catching Fire by Susan Collins
Catching Fire is a very unique book. Throughout my past books that I have read, none have caught my eye as much as this book has. Each time I turned the page, there was a new adventure waiting to happen on the next piece of paper.
Katniss and Peeta have survived the 74th Hunger Games, have…Continue
Maybe Veronica Roth would not appreciate being compared to another author, but I adored the Hunger Games series, so I meant this as a compliment. Both of them are geniuses, in my opinion, because both bring forth two different ways humanity can crash in the future. While Suzanne Collins prefers to show a new way to control humanity in the way that adolescents kill each other, Roth has divided just the borders…Continue

During my summer of 2012 I did a ton of things, one of which included reading The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins. It was one of the most enjoyable books ive ever read, and practically forced me to read the last two. A few things that were the most interesting and meaningful in the novel were the character of Katniss, and how people react when they are put in a life of death situation.
The character of Katniss Everdeen…Continue
