Hunger Games--Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins:
Catching Fire was my favorite of the three books, because had a well written plot and a deep meaning. This books demonstrates the power in the capitol and foreshadows the rising of a rebellion. The whole series was very suspensulful keeping readers off the edge of their seat and allowing readers to read on and find out what happens. In Catching Fire, she allows good things to happen to the Katniss and Peeta, the maincharacters, but many unfortunate things happen as well. At the end of this book, it leaves a strong cliffhanger causing readers to read the next book.

Percy Jackson--Book 1:
I really enjoyed this first book, because it contained a lot of action. I am usually not too much into action, but this book was a good read. It was a great introduction to Greek Mythology. I learned so much about this subject just by reading this book. While reading this book as Percy was on his mission, I could feel as I was with him. I kept wanting to read and find out what happend to him. Also the suspense that the prophecy gave him foreshadowed the result of his mission knowing that prophecies are often misleading. I really liked this book and suggest it to anyone who likes Greek mythology and action.

 

Thanks Michelle for the reviews!
