Wow! We now commence with our 3rd discussion in the Summer of Hunger Games by discussing Parts I and II of Catching Fire and anything previous to that—and boy do we have a lot to discuss!

Remember, on the right hand side of this post you’ll see Book Talk’s own WORDS WE LIVE BY – so please, keep it friendly and fun.

Click through to read some of our (very crazy) thoughts about where we are with Catching Fire!
Man alive! Finishing Hunger Games and jumping straight into Catching Fire is amazing! Last time I read Catching Fire I did not reread Hunger Games and getting a chance to read these back to back is blowing my mind! For the longest time I was convinced that Hunger Games was the better book. I even had a discussion with a friend just before we started Summer of Hunger Games and she was telling me that Catching Fire was better…she was right and I was wrong! Catching Fire has so much going on…the politics and the mind games between Katniss and President Snow, the Quarter Quell, and oh we can’t forget the love triangle!!!
Alright tributes…what do you think? Go!
