Favorite New Series

I have to tell you about my new favorite book series!  My teenage son first read The Hunger Games this summer and literally could not put in down.  He insisted I read it & I absolutely LOVED it!  It is the story of 16 year old Katniss, who lives in District 12 in the post-apocalyptic country of Panem.  All of the Districts are controlled by a powerful government which is know as the Capitol. As punishment of rebellion against the Capitol, they hold an annual Hunger Games. The Capitol conducts a random selection of 1 boy and 1 girl from each district competes in a televised fight to the death.  I can't tell you anymore or else I will be giving it away but trust me, it is a page turner!

Two days later we were in the bookstore buy the second book in the series, Catching Fire

And three days later we were back buying the final book, Mocking Jay

I SO highly recommend this series for young adults-even my Mom loved it!  Has anyone else read this series?  Did you like it as much as we did?
