Katniss Everdeen, The girl who was on fire.

Finallyyyy I made this post. Sorry because it's so. very. late. My internet is like asdgfjflsjdfufhg .. Everytime I want to use it suddenly it becomes so sensitive.. Nevermind now. Here it is! Tadadaaa!
"Sparks are igniting. Flames are spreading. And The Capitol wants revenge. "
“Katniss Everdeen, the girl who was on fire, you have provided a spark that, left unattended, may grow to an inferno that destroys Panem,"

Catching Fire, the second book from The Hunger Games Saga. First thought before reading this book, I thought it woudn't be very surprising, because Katniss and Peeta have already finished their Hunger Games in book 1, and they won. And I started to think, "What's left then for them?" I keep thinking of random plots and stories, but I couldn't find one that suitable enough.

And as I keep reading and reading.. It's brilliant! Very thrilling, and surprising. Thumbs up for Suzanne Collins! The way how she plotted the whole stories, it was so amazing. And there are like, tons of surprises inside this book. The most shocking part of all, The Quarter Quell.
"When the laws from the Hunger Games were laid out, they dictated that every twenty-five years the anniversary would be marked by a Quarter Quell. It would call for a glorified version of the Games to make fresh the memory of those killed by the districts' rebellion."
 "On the seventy-fifth anniversary, as a reminder to the rebels that even the strongest among them cannot overcome the power of the Capitol, the male and female tributes will be reaped from their existing pool of victors."
When I realized katniss will be going back to the arena, I was like, "What? It can't -- No you can't do that SNOW! How could you do that.." And as the story goes on, it's unbelievably shocking. The Games, the characters, even things between Peeta and Katniss. You better grab this book and start to read it! Anyway, I found this poster when I was googling, and I looove it. Take a look!

Can't wait to watch the sequel, they said it would be released on November 22nd, 2013. I hope it will be as brilliant as the book :)

“The bird, the pin, the song, the berries, the watch, the cracker, the dress that burst into flames. I am the mockingjay. The one that survived despite the Capitol's plans. The symbol of the rebellion.” 

Katniss was saved from the Games. The rebels saved her from the arena, along with the other few victors, but not all. The Capitol has Peeta. And they destroyed District 12. The other districts are fighting in a rebellion againts The Capitol. Now what will she do?
“Sometimes when I'm alone, I take the pearl from where it lives in my pocket and try to remember the boy with the bread, the strong arms that warded off nightmares on the train, the kisses in the arena.” 

Finally the last book from the series, Mockingjay. I have to make a confession, this is my favorite book from all the series. It brings a whole different atmosphere from the first and second book. It's more dark, but always shocking, and a little bit terrifying, I think. It's like, it's bringing you right into the storyAnd the book was so adventurous, so intense. I couldn't stop reading it. When I knew about what they The Capitol has done to Peeta.. I was so sad and mad at the same time. Do you really have a heart, Snow?
"Surely both, for he sweeps the doctors aside, leaps to his feets and moves towards me. I run to meet him, my arms extended to embrace him. His hands are reaching for mine too, to caress my face, I think.
My lips are forming his name when his fingers lock around my throat.” 
Now he will never be the same again.
I kinda like the ending. Not like, I love it. I even wanted to type the whole epilogue in this post but I know it will spoil the ending for some who read this post but haven't read the book. My suggestion: Go to bookstore, grab the books, and start reading. NOW. You won't regret it.

After all, this series gave me so much to think -- about our loved ones, about our life, and courage. What if someday, suddenly, you're left with nothing? Your family's gone, your friends, your life.. Boom. Gone. Then someone try to control you. to break you, to make sure you'll lost everything. What will you do? Surrender? Or fight back? What will you do --- What will I do? I can't even imagine it.

Five Stars for this series! Now I have to add Suzanne Collins to my favorite author list. Thankyou for The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay. You're soooo amazing!
My favorite line from Mockingjay:
“Fire is catching! And if we burn, you burn with us!”
Thanks for reading. Hugs!
