Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 12, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs... for now. Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault. Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.

But even though Lola’s style is outrageous, she’s a devoted daughter and friend with some big plans for the future. And everything is pretty perfect (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the dreaded Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighborhood. When Cricket -- a gifted inventor -- steps out from his twin sister’s shadow and back into Lola’s life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.

He appears to her in her dreams and soon, even in her waking life. But is she just imagining it? Isobel knows she must find a way back to Varen. She makes plans to go to Baltimore. There, she confronts the figure known throughout the world as the Poe Toaster—the same dark man who once appeared to Isobel in her dreams, calling himself “Reynolds.”Isobel succeeds in interrupting the Toaster’s ritual and, in doing so, discovers a way to return to the dream-world. Soon, she finds herself swept up in a realm which not only holds remnants of Poe’s presence, but has also now taken on the characteristics of Varen’s innermost self. It is a dark world comprised of fear, terror, and anger.

Mockingjay By Suzanne Collins

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Young Katniss Everdeen has survived the dreaded Hunger Games not once, but twice, but even now she can find no relief. In fact, the dangers seem to be escalating: President Snow has declared an all-out war on Katniss, her family, her friends, and all the oppressed people of District 12. The thrill-packed final installment of Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy will keep young hearts pounding.

My Thoughts:
Let me start off by saying that this review is completely spoiler free.

After months of hearing about The Hunger Games and how much everyone seemed to love it, i decided to give it a try. Only to regret not reading it earlier.
This book is a roller-coaster of emotions; which promises everything from suspense to love to friendship. But the one thing that this book does not promise is a future.

I do not think that there is a word in the English language which could properly describe this book. Wonderful? Amazing? all these words seem small compared to the feeling that you get when you finish this trilogy.

Electrifying ... seems best fit. Each and every page sends spasms running through your body as you try to decipher the fate of all those you hold dear.

This book does not let you guess the ending at all. Everytime that i thought i knew what was going to happen; a complete turn of events left me shocked.

I feel sorry for Katniss and Peeta as they are thrown into terrible situations again and again. constantly being used as players in a game they now nothing of.
You can see each character grow slowly; Katniss, Peeta, Gale, Finnick, Prim, Haymitch all changing.

I understand what Katniss has been through. But i agree with Haymitch when he says to Katniss:

"You could live a hundred lifetimes and not deserve him you know."

I would like to praise the author for writing "The Hunger Games." This book is an unmatched brilliance which will continue to surprise its readers again and again and again.

The characters grow on each page; they grow onto you, into your life.

My eyes were full of tears by the end of the book. Everything is kept close to reality. The ending isn't a happily ever after, nor is it as bad as one might expect.

I guess that is the beauty of this book. You cannot expect everyone to be the way that they were. Once you enter a war your life is completely altered and once you enter the hunger games; there is no going back.

Catching Fire By Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark won the annual competition described in Hunger Games, but the aftermath leaves these victors with no sense of triumph. Instead, they have become the poster boys for a rebellion that they never planned to lead. That new, unwanted status puts them in the bull's-eye for merciless revenge by The Capitol. Catching Fire maintains the adrenaline rush of Suzanne Collins's series launch.

  My Thoughts:
First of all, do not read this review if you have not read the first book in the trilogy.

That being said.


this book was AMAZING. i cant figure out if i like this book more than the first one. I guess they both have their rightful place in my imaginary shelf of awesomeness (if that even makes sense )
I'll start off by saying that this trilogy has become my favourite.
i never thought that i could ever love a book as much as i loved harry potter. But this definitely is THE ONE.
What i love about this trilogy is that not for a single moment did i feel tired or bored of reading about Panem. But i loved each and every second of it.
This book is a page-turner; by every definition of the word page-turner.
Each and every page describes what you never thought possible. Each time that you think that now finally things will turn out good for Katniss and Peeta; there goes the capitol surprising us all. Or should i say "there goes the author surprising us all"

I cant begin to describe how much i love the author for writing such an incredible book.
From the uprising to the games and from Haymitch to president Snow this book will keep you on your toes till you finish it. wanting for more.

The Hunger Games By Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

My Thoughts:
The Hunger Games...........i had heard this name probably about a thousand times before i read it.
And now that i have finished it; i am speechless.

There is not much to say about the book but that its beautifully written. The characters feel realer than reality. And even though this book is nothing like real life; you can't help but relate to it.

I really dont have much to say about this book. It is THAT GOOD!!
Good is a very small word. if there was a word made to describes all the positive adjectives then it would be for this book.

This was my very first dystopian novel and it had me hooked. from the first page to the last page.

And now that i have finished it i have only one thing to say:
The odds do not seem to be in their favour.

Absolutely riveting, the plot keeps you up all nights until you finish it; only wanting more.

The Hunger Games Trilogy has become my favourite.

I still have no idea why i am writing this....if you have not read this....READ IT!!
Do not waste time..Go right now and read it !!
