The Hunger Games is a national televised event where 24 contestants fight to the death to be the victors of Panem. Panem is the new world formed post apocalypse. The Capitol is were all the wealthy people are, and there are 12 poorer districts surrounding the Capitol. Every year two contestants from each district, a male and a female, from ages 13-18 are chosen to compete in the Hunger Games. May the odds be ever in your favor. When 16-year-old Katniss’ younger sister Prim is chose as the female representative, she volunteers to take her place. Katniss, as the first volunteer of District 12, must now compete in the Hunger Games. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, now much train and prepare to fight. Katniss sees this whole situation as a death sentence, but she has been close to death before, survival is second nature. But there are 23 other ¬†teenagers she has to go through to get back to her family. Many of whom have spent their entire lives training to be the crowning victors of the Hunger Games. Well, this is gonna be fun.

I loved reading these books, and I’m obsessed with the movies. I can’t wait for the last one to come out. These books were an adventure, and i was engrossed from the first page. I love the character of Katniss, and how she does absolutely everything to protect those she love. Including, her mother, her sister Prim, and her best friend Gale. Gale and Katniss have always been close, but he wants things to be more serious. Peeta is just a baker. To everyone in District 12, Peeta is just a baker. But to Katniss, he saved her life. My favorite character is Finnick Odair, but he doesn’t come in until book two. Many people are familiar with this series, but if you aren’t definitely read, watch the movies, and join the revolution!
