Next up: Deeper Than the Dead by Tami Hoag

I bought this book only because I wanted to see what the hype was about this series. It sat on my bookshelf for awhile and I finally picked it up to read. The topic of the books is a little disturbing but I really enjoyed this book! It was very difficult to put it down. I can't wait to read "Catching Fire" after I get my library books read!!! I recommend this one to everyone!!!

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 weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
