Favorite Hunger Games Trilogy Book: Catching Fire. Oddly enough the premise behind the arena being a clock intrigues me. Peeta’s character also develops more in CF and the ending makes me feel for him even more.
Favorite Character: PEETA! I have never loved a character in a book more then I love Peeta. He’s honest, loyal to Katniss, a fighter…shall I go on? His character makes me wish there was a real life Peeta out there.
“But I have a mission. No, it’s more than a mission. It’s my dying wish. Keep Peeta Alive.” -Katniss Everdeen, Catching Fire
“That what I need to survive is not Gale’s fire, kindled with rage and hatred. I have plenty of fire myself. What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That is can be good again. And only Peeta can give me that.” Katniss Everdeen, Mockingjay
Favorite Hunger Games Trilogy Book: Mockingjay! Why? In one word “Real”, in one adjective “Amazing” and in one feeling “Heart Wrenching.” The journey is real and the characters are true to that journey. The book is just amazing!
Favorite Character: Peeta, I may be a card carrying member of Team Katniss, but Peeta is my favorite character. Why? He’s Peeta…lol
State: New York
Favorite Hunger Games Trilogy Book: I love them all for different reasons, but if I absolutely have to pick, I choose Hunger Games. The experience of reading it for the first time (having no idea what it was about and no expectations) was incredible– it was so good, in fact, that I put off reading the other books in the series for months because I was worried they wouldn’t be as good (I was wrong).
Favorite Character: Cinna. He’s a reminder to all of us that people from all walks of life (rich or poor, Capitol or Seam) are capable of love, kindness, and sacrifice.
Facts About Me:
State: West Virginia
Favorite Hunger Games Trilogy Book: Catching Fire. I love this book because we can see what happen after the Games, the good and the bad. We also get to see how vulnerable Katniss is and how much she grows.
Favorite Character: HAYMITCH! Haymitch is the person that I want in my corner. He truly cares about Katniss and Peeta. I cannot imagine how hard it would be for year after year watch kids that you mentor to die right there in front of you and there is nothing you can do. When he mentored Katniss and Peeta he was right there trying everything that he could do to help them survive.
Facts About Me:
Favorite Hunger Games Trilogy Book: Mockingjay. Because I was in no way expecting it. It was powerful. It hit me hard, but it was honest and real, sad and hopeful, all at the same time. I really admire Suzanne Collins for the courage to write it the way she did.
Favorite Character: Katniss. Because of her strength. In light of everything she endures in the saga, she never backs down from her goal of keeping those she loves fed and safe.
Facts About Me:
State: Washington DC (though New Jersey when I’m not at college)
Favorite Hunger Games Trilogy Book: Mockingjay! Even though it’s the book that annoyed me the most, it also gave me the most emotion. I love emoting from books. I almost always like the last book in a series the best because it brings it all together. The series is just incomplete until that point. And I love the whole package.
Favorite Character: Peeta, without a doubt. I know it’s over-said, but Peeta is just so perfect, I can’t understand how people could say anyone else. He’s moral, funny, devoted, peaceful, strong, sunny, talented, and just wonderful. His mind works the way mine does, and there is just nothing to dislike about him. He is the character I love most in all of literature.
Favorite Quote: I have been dreading answering this question, because I find it so difficult to choose. But I think I can narrow it down to three.
State: New Jersey
Favorite Hunger Games Trilogy Book: I’d have to go with The Hunger Games, because it is there that we meet most of our favorite characters and are introduced to the long-lasting relationships we have come to love. It made me cry in a way I hadn’t in a long time, and I think that the ability to evoke such strong emotions from readers is something to be highly valued.
Favorite Character: I’m a HUGE fan of Haymitch! He remains surly and strong throughout the trilogy, helping his tributes to “stay alive” even when the odds aren’t in their favor. He doesn’t have to have some enormous character arc– he already knew what he had to do, it was just finding the right time to do it.
Favorite Quote: “I always channel my emotions into my work. That way I don’t hurt anyone but myself.” Cinna
Facts about Me:
Favorite Hunger Games Trilogy Book: Catching Fire because we meet so many wonderful new characters like Johanna, Finnick, and Beetee. I also loved the intricacy of the clock arena and the further development of Gale’s character and Katniss and Peeta’s relationship.
Favorite Character: Hands down it has to be Finnick. At first I didn’t like him much because of his cockiness, but I enjoyed trying to figure out his motives in Catching Fire and finally learning his story in Mockingjay (there may have been tears). Plus, the love he holds for Annie is just beautiful.
Facts about me:
Favorite Hunger Games Trilogy Book: The Hunger Games. While I loved the entire trilogy, there was nothing like being introduced to The Games, the characters, and everything else I love about the series for the first time.
Favorite Character: Peeta, for sure. Many times in my life I’ve told myself not to let anyone change me, and just to be me in the way only I know how. That and we’re both hopeless romantics. Peeta is basically me, only he’s a billion times cooler, haha.
