The Hunger Games trilogy

WOW!  I read the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins a few weeks ago.  I was amazed!  These books were awesome!

In the first book, The Hunger Games, we meet Katniss and Peeta.  Katniss lives in a future version of our country.  She is selected as one of the kids that has to go to the Hunger Games. 24 kids are chosen to go to battle every year and they fight until only one person is left alive.  Peeta is the boy that is chosen from her town.  She knows him, but not very well.  In an interview before the Games, he says he loves her!  Katniss doesn't know what to think but the Games are starting and she has to go fight.  Doesn't this book sound crazy?  I cannot imagine this happening!

As soon as I finished the first book, I went to the library to get the second one.  When I finished the second one, I just about ran to the library to get the third one!  They are so very good in my opinion. Have you read them?  What do you think?

I would recommend this book for the end of the year for some of my fourth grade readers.  We do not have any of the Hunger Games books in our elementary libraries but they are available at the public library and the middle school library.  Maybe this is a book to keep in mind for when you move up to the middle school.  I just loved it so much that I had to add it to my blog!
