What can I say? It was fantastic as a YA Post Apocalyptic novel. The audiobook was fantastic with narrator Tatiana Maslany. I need to watch the movies again. Couldn‘t put it down. 4⭐️

I‘m grateful for the Hunger Games. Honestly this is always my favorite book and my favorite series. I will never get tired of opening up to that first line and diving into the story again. From my first to my third read it‘s comforting and a story that holds great meaning in my life. So I‘ll always be grateful for the series 😄 @BookmarkTavern - thanks for putting this together! #sundayfunday

Remember, remember, the 5th of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

My sisters recommended that I read this whole trilogy after we saw the first movie, and I was surprised by how much I liked them. The way the books dealt with the choices and consequences of a revolution felt so real and grounded.

#SundayFunday Have a great day, and don‘t forget to tag me!

this, believe it or not, was my first time reading this! wow the movie is a quite accurate adaptation i‘m impressed. loved the minor details within the book that aren‘t incorporated as fully in the film. the love story between katniss and peeta is so much more prevalent in the book and katniss faking it is so well written. i also think the book speaks volumes about just how young the tributes are, and how fucked up the whole capitol really is.

How awful that to punish people, the capitol has two children from each district - who are likely starved- face each other in an arena & fight to the death. But Katniss, does things her own way.

I think this is one of the best series I've ever read.. more than anything, you'll really be able to connect with the characters.. the emotions are inexpressible... The pace and the plot both are great.. you should definitely give it a read..

I reread The Hunger Games this semester and I thought it was really interesting to read the book from an anti-capitalist perspective. A lot of the conflicts with class and revolution in the book reminded me of present-day America

This book is about Katniss Everdeen, a girl that is being forced into a arena with hundreds of others, to keep this people in track, they‘re in multiple districts. This books theme is all about survival. This book is very enjoyable weather it is your first time reading it, or your 10th. I would recommend this book for people that like books that‘s are very slow paced, and doesn‘t have a problem with gore.

MissYaremcio Thank you for the review Tavish! Litsy Post #2 was about POV, so you were missing that. 4/6 11mo

In the post apocalyptic nation of Panem, Katniss Everdeen lives in the poorest district of the 12 left. Each year, the Capitol holds the Hunger Games, in which one female and one male tribute are chosen from each district to fight to the death. When Katniss's sister gets chosen, Katniss sacrifices herself to take her place. Joined by Peeta Mellark, the pair go into the games where they fight against 22 other opponents until there is only one left.

leila.tapang If you like books with thrilling books with lots of action and violence, then you'll enjoy reading this. This book is written in first person as it is narrated through Katniss's point of view. It is established by using “I“ and “my“ to tell her perspective. 11mo
MissYaremcio Great work Leila! Such a great series! 6/6 11mo

Hunger Games was a game about surviving, each game one girl and one boy is picked to attend this game without choice. The chosen ones in District 12 were Katniss Everdeen a 16 year old girl who was considered poor and Peeta who owned a bakery store. If you like books that are Dystopian and full of adventure then you would for sure like this book.

Margaret_Acosta This book is mainly presented as first person and is established by Katniss talking about her history and experiences throughout the story. 11mo

So I binged THG movies last week and couldn‘t resist a reread! It was still just as good as I remembered!! I love this world and these characters so much. Cinna and Haymitch are my favorite (… and Peeta, too 🥹) One of the rare occurances when the movie adaption did the book complete and total justice! 5/5

It is a novel about a girl name Katniss Everdeen that is forced to an arena with other kids, taken place in Panem. In order to keep the kids under control they are forced into separate districts. The theme of this book is survival. I really enjoyed this book because Katniss and all the other characters were interesting to learn about, and the more I read it the more I got invested to the book. This book is very hectic, and fast paced.

MissYaremcio Thank you for the review Tavish. I would have liked more on the summary and theme but otherwise good work. 4/6 12mo

Instagram is killing me slowly with lack of engagement.

I spend ages taking photos for challenges and writing silly but on point captions - yesterday writing about how much Gale sucks and no body said anything 😫

Anyway. Long Live Litsy!

Bookzombie I don‘t really use Instagram. You make me want to reread The Hunger Games though. 🙂 13mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Bookzombie, I‘d give up on IG completely, if I didn‘t use it to chat with a handful of people. It‘s just gotten very full of advertising… I felt the same way when I pulled the books out to take the photo! Maybe it‘s time to revisit? 13mo

I enjoyed this book immensely. It was very hard for me to put down. I think that though it‘s popular there is definitely a reason for it as the book is impossible to put down.

This book really hooks you in with many elements of the story. Overall, good series to read. I personally would recommend to an older young adult audience due to the themes of death and killing.

Speculative fiction. Awesome read. The book really hooks you in with Katniss's story. It really make your heart ache and you feel for the situation that they are in. You also really get into the whole games and who is going to make it out alive.

The Hunger Games takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where North America has been limited in its resources and is divided into twelve districts. Each year there are games that take place where two tributes from each district go to an arena and fight to the death. The story follows Katniss Everdeen as she heads to the capital to fight for her life.

The Hunger Games series was written by Suzanne Collins. I read this series when I was in middle school and I really liked them a lot. The fact that the story is told in first person makes the story really engaging and enjoyable. This book is filled with action, drama, love, fear, and more. These books will for sure make you wanting to read the next chapter.

My library had this cool display for Banned Book Week! The book I chose ("Anti-family content, offensive language, violence") ended being The Hunger Games!

Such a cool display & fun to choose a book!

So I finally read it and can understand why it‘s so popular. Very interesting world with a good mix of humour, heart and horror. It did take me awhile to get used to the writing style and the frequent use of flashbacks though. I also think Katniss was a bit too oblivious at times and I didn‘t care about the love triangle at all but I did care about the characters so to me that makes it a good book.
