I read Catching Fire – the second book in The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – but I didn’t love it. I liked it, but that’s about it. It didn’t grab me like the first book in the series did. It missed something, and I honestly can’t exactly name what it was. But maybe if I’d read it again I’d love it. Maybe it was just me. I’ll let you know what I think when I’ve read it again sometime.
Here is a summary from Goodreads:
Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol– a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.
Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she’s afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she’s not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol’s cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can’t prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying. – Goodreads.com
