Reading Corner ~ Book 3 of 12

Well, I'm doing awesome for my reading challenge so far this year.  I wanted to do one book a month and so far I've done 3 in the first two months.  I'm kind of impressed with myself, but I guess if I wasn't working out as much I wouldn't have the time to read nearly as much.  Anyway, I finished book two of the Hunger Games trilogy:

Catching Fire ~ Suzanne Collins


Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

All I can really say about this book is that you definitely want to read the entire series.  I thought this one was slow going in the beginning, but about a quarter of the way in it started to pick up and I couldn't put it down.  I can't wait to start the third and final book ... Mockingjay.
