I have been trying to catch up on the YA books on my TBR pile so that I can donate them to my HS Media Center.
After a long wait and much anticipation, I just read Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. I had booktalked The Hunger Games with my sixth graders the first day of school and have 17 kids on the waiting list for that one. I'm sure the list will be just as long for Catching Fire.
I don't want to spoil anything for those who have not read The Hunger Games yet. (But, why haven't you? Put it on the top of your TBR pile right now! You won't regret it.) So I will just say that this episode is just as exciting and enthralling as the first episode. Beware though that it ends with a cliffhanger. You too will be haunting the internet to find out when the third (and final?) book will be available.
Here is the book trailer:
