32 Down, 20 To Go "The Hunger Games" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

I always approach extremely popular fiction series with a great degree of trepidation. Family and friends have gobbled up series like Twilight and Harry Potter, but I couldn't get past a handful of pages in either.

Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy is the exception. Admittedly, I am a fan of dystopian fiction, and The Hunger Games is a wonderful, fast-paced example of the genre. The Hunger Games is fast-paced, and her characters are crisply drawn and always relatable, and its strong young female protagonists offer a needed and refreshing perspective.

I finished all three books in this series in a couple of days, the story was that compelling. This may be the best YA fiction series I have ever read.

My next book is Anthony Bourdain's book Medium Raw.
