After reading the comments on my previous post, I decided to read the second two books in the Hunger Games trilogy. Loved them. And I can see why many people hated the third book–according to the Amazon reviews, for many of the reasons that I liked it (mainly the main characters’ actions and reactions).
It actually ended up a little less dark than I had expected–not to spoil anything, I’ll just say there was one line in Catching Fire that I thought was foreshadowing things turning out very bad.

It’s been a long time since I read American Gods, but I have the feeling I liked this one better. It was, at least, a nice change to read something relatively cheerful and humorous.
