Catching Fire


A good friend is one who loans you their copy of Catching Fire when they find out you are number bajillion in the library hold queue and they know you have been in withdrawals ever since coming to the end of Hunger Games and discovering it's not the end, but only the beginning of a series, and even though you were rather late in jumping on the Hunger Games bandwagon, there was still several months to wait until Book Two would be released. Said friend has not even read Catching Fire herself, but still loaned it to me, probably because I am obsessed, and because she purchased the book, but recklessly decided not to read it till Book Three was released, thus sparing herself the agony (of which I am now experiencing) of waiting so long to find out what happens next.

That is my definition of a friend.

Thanks, Peggy. I owe you.

And in case you're wondering...Book Two is every bit as intense and wonderful as the first. I loved it!

I did LOVE it! I should have mentioned in my post that I read and finished it over the weekend. I'll go back and add that. I thought it was every bit as good as the first.

Valarie,
That is funny I pretty much said the same thing in my blog. I loved the books but I tell everybody to wait. One thing I learned from this as writers we should have a helpful interactive website if we are going to string the readers along to keep them satisfied until your next book is finished.

Just got done reading both books... took me 3 whole days. Love them both. Now I'm reading "Enders Game". Love this one too. Always looking for great reads!
