2018- Reread this book this month. I think this is now my favorite book in the series. I am totally Team Peeta. Katniss can be a little hard to handle now and again, but I really think Peeta bring the best out in her. Wonderful read all over again.

2012-Great book. I loved the characters. I wasn't sure about a few of them, but the more I read that more I wanted to know about them. I would love to read back stories on all the characters in this book. ( )

this was a fast read (i borrowed it via Kindle lending club)! Ends in a super cliff-hanger! ( )

OK, I liked this one even better than The Hunger Games. I'm definitely getting [b:Mockingjay|7260188|Mockingjay (Hunger Games, #3)|Suzanne Collins|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1282388315s/7260188.jpg|8812783] when it comes out. ( )

I didn't enjoy this one as much as I had The Hunger Games. Perhaps the shock of the premise wore off for me? It felt just a little recycled. What saved it for me were the characters. They were wonderful and I feel as though the main characters were growing and evolving with their circumstances. It wasn't a bad middle book. ( )

What a great read. This book made me cry when they were selected for the Quarter Quell. Read this book in two days, just couldn't put it down. ( )

Collins has done that rare thing. She has written a sequel that improves upon the first book. As a reader, I felt excited and even hopeful: could it be that this series and its characters were actually going somewhere?
 
The author describes her wearing a series of Cher-worthy costumes in which she confronts poisonous mists, deranged monkeys, and a flock of ''candy pink'' birds equipped with long beaks used to skewer human necks. Great stuff, this. Unfortunately, such startling apparitions too quickly appear and disappear, baubles randomly affixed to a story that's been stretched to gossamer thinness.

Book description
SPARKS ARE IGNITING.
FLAMES ARE SPREADING.
AND THE CAPITOL WANTS REVENGE.


Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol — a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.

Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
Haiku summary
Katniss and Peeta
