Bk: The Hunger Games Series

Suzanne Collins definitely has some of my students reading, and I thank her for that. I've only read the first two in her Hunger Game series. I found the first one excellent for my older readers. The second one was more difficult to get involved in, but I think it is because she is somewhat awkward in how she covers backstory. Once that was over, though, the story picked up pace. Unlike Horowitz's books, though, Collins apparently reworks the same theme and format with each Hunger Games. This may keep my students enthralled, but I think I'll pass on the last of the series.
