Last year I read The Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. They were two of my favorite books that I read last year. The Hunger Games has once again been added to my To Be Read list as I prepare to teach it this year. (My students are doing lit circles on novels that focus on the same themes as Lord of the Flies, and The Hunger Games will be one of the novels that students will be able to choose. I can’t wait to teach this unit.)
This summer I read Mockingjay, the third book in The Hunger Games series. It was not what I expected, but I still enjoyed it.
This fall Suzanne Collins will go on a book tour and she in October she will come to Minneapolis! She will be at Wild Rumpus on Friday, October 1 from 4:00 to 5:30. I can’t wait.
