Best Books in the Hunger Games Trilogy

The Top Ten
1 Catching Fire

Catching Fire is probably my favorite of the movies, but as a book it's kinda *meh*. I liked it for sure, and it was written with phenomenal talent, but I guess it just took a while to really get going. The Quarter Quell was fantastic, of course, and the whole book showed how truly despicable President Snow is. I love the interactions among the victors and the element of "You can survive the Games, but you never really win."

This book I just adore. It wasn't that boring or aggravating, except for the love triangle. Every page, every minute, every second of this book was just amazing. I love Katniss, and naturally Johanna MASON! And every other character was just breathtaking. It was just emotionally moving. Four words: I love this book!

This is my favourite for some reason I think it's because it had this really fast paced feeling to the games and when I read the ending I couldn't sleep for the whole night.

This was the book that made me stay up nights just to read the next chapter. Mockingjay made me not want to read it for a month. God that book was boring.

2 The Hunger Games

This is probably my favorite because even though the story isn't really in full swing yet, it's still super interesting because of the whole survival element. Overall I guess it just feels a lot more real than in Catching Fire (although I loved that one too!). Katniss deals with legitimate hunger, thirst, heat, cold, and various wounds. It really shows off her ingenuity and talent. My favorites are (1) The Hunger Games, (2) The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, (3) Catching Fire, (4) Mockingjay.

This book is amazing. I will never get sick of it (or its movies). I enjoyed this book to its 2 others because I felt more connected to the tributes. Cato's death.. that's what did it for me, along with glimmer's death. It was interesting watching how each of the tributes (and their allies) responded to the arena and how they bonded with each other, apart from just katniss and her allies. I feel like that lacked in Catching Fire.

It is very tough between this and Catching Fire, but I decided to go with the first book because it introduced me to the series. I liked the 2nd movie better though because the end of the book looked like it was written by a ten year old and it was cleared up so much.

I loved this book I have read it multiple times watched the movie and I think Gale and Katniss should have ended up together PEETA GO TO HELL. But I loved the careers in this book Cato and Clove WHY DID YOU HAVE TO DIE. " Sorry if I insult people in this comment" But the second book is just plain weird and the third one is so sad out of the trilogy I have read this book the most

3 Mockingjay

This is my least favorite of the four, but it's still incredible! The development of Katniss' and Peeta's characters is so intriguing, and although there's not a whole lot of action, there's some intense food for thought. Come to think of it, EVERYONE in this book has amazing character development. I love that Katniss finds herself moving from being a puppet of the Capitol to being a puppet of District Thirteen...but she has to be that puppet if she hopes to save anyone she cares about. (WARNING: SPOILER ALERT!) Prim's death was absolutely heartbreaking, and what it does to Katniss is gut-wrenching. And then of course Katniss bonds with Buttercup, which is adorable :)

It provides a nice closure for the series. More authors should take Suzanne Collins as an example.
Also, she managed to give a deeper sense to the series thanks to this book, in my opinion.

I stayed up all night reading this one, I think it's definitely my favourite. all the twists and turns and tragic moments make it a book you cannot put down.

While this was perhaps not the most fun book, it was by far the most real. So thought provoking and page turning.
