Waiting on Wednesday #2

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
(September 8, 2009)

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

Being the lame cover whore I am, I figured that The Hunger Games wouldn't be nearly as amazing as everyone claimed. I was so far from being right. The Hunger Games was absolutely perfect, definitely the best book in 2008. Needless to say I am soooo excited for Catching Fire. If anyone out there who reads this has an ARC copy I would love you forever if I could snag a copy. If not, well, I can't wait until September!

What are you waiting for?



  1. Oh, if you happen to find an ARC of that one I would love to know how you did it! I can't wait to follow up on The Hunger Games!


  2. From what I hear, NO ONE is going to get an ARC before May. But I do hope I get one then since this is my number 1 must have of this year.

    So thrilled you loved Hunger Games, YAY.

  3. I am not sure I can read this one because apparently it's a trilogy, and I don't know if I will be able to contain myself reading the second and not the third.....decisions, decisions...

  4. I loved The Hunger Games and I most definitely can't wait to read this one. Great pick!

  5. This is one of my most wanted books of the year... I can't wait! The Hunger Games was AMAZING!

  6. Ohhhh this has got to be THE most awaited book of the year. I am practically salivating for it....yeah!!
