"You could live life a hundred times and never deserve him you know."
- Haymitch Abernathy
"My nightmares are usually about losing you. I'm okay once I realized you're here."
-Peeta to Katniss ❤
"No one really needs me," he says, and there's no self-pity in his voice. I realize only one person will be damaged beyond repair if Peeta died. Me.(and me). "I do," I say, "I knead you."
Get it because he's the boy with the bread. *Dies of laughter* seriously though i love that scene. <3
"PRIM!!! PRIM WHERE ARE YOU!"
"KATNISS THEY WOULDN'T HURT PRIM! IT'S A JABBERJAY! THE CAPITOL LOVES PRIM! WOULD THEY DO ANYTHING TO HER?!" -Katniss and Finic in JabberJay Arena
Sexual Content: Mild 2 characters sleep together, but nothing happens.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Here's the deal. It's a little gorier than the first book. If you couldn't handle the death and blood in the first one, I recommend that you don't read this one or the next one. A good book if you can handle crying your eyes out over characters, situations, and an abrupt cliffhanger.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Its scary, and a cliffhanger, not for the soft harded
Other: • Violence and Death are prevalent topics • Sexuality: Mild • Does not contain coarse language

The second book in the Hunger Game series. It is mesmerizing and exciting as the first. I can't wait to read the third book.
The book "Catching Fire" is about katniss and peeta and how their life changes after they get back from the Hunger Games as the new victors .
Katniss hopes that now that she has returned back home to District 12 everything will return to normal. But she very soon realizes that things will ever be the same ever again. The berries she once thought were her escape have now planted seeds of rebellion in the districts against the Capitol. Peeta feels betrayed, Gale keeps her at a cold distance and Katniss finds herself lost, confused and alone. Their lives are further complicated with the wildcard of the 75th Hunger Games when it is announced that the tributes will be chosen from the existing pool of victors. Katniss consequently goes into the arena; however, this time she has a very different mindset. She vows to protect Peeta’s life and ensure that he wins no matter the cost. But it soon becomes very obvious that the odds most certainly are not in Katniss’ favor.
