'Catching Fire' Buzz is Heating Up!

If you loved Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games even half as much as I did, you're anxiously awaiting the September 8 release of its sequel, Catching Fire. Publisher's Weekly has thrown us a bone, unveiling the cover design (see above), AND making it known that Scholastic will be giving out ARCs at BEA this spring. I'm so excited...and I just can't hide it.

Now the question is, how do I get my hands on one of those puppies?

Thanks to Bookshelves of Doom for the link.


  1. i can't wait either. the hunger games was so addicting i couldn't put it down. i really hope there are no disappointing moments in the sequel i'm sure collins won't let us down..

  2. i loved the hunger games though the ending was such a cliffie i want to know what happens....
    and the 'review' was publisized saying that the capitol wants revenge on kat and peeta now i just can't wait till it comes out!

  3. I heard a rumor that some VERY special people were able to aquire ARCs at ALA's mid-winter conference, but it isn't confirmed. I am so so so looking forward to Catching Fire and also have the sense that Peeta and Katniss will be "on the run." I'm also kinda hoping for a love triangle subplot with Katniss, Peeta and Gale. Eeee! I can't wait.

  4. yes i also can't wait for the triangle between peeta katniss and gale to be introduced, but the hunger games isn't supposed to be a romance novel so i've heard

  5. Ah, indeed - I really want an ARC of this!
