Judging by some of the blogs we’ve seen, and by the awesome fan videos you made, we’re not the only ones. Time recently wrote a wonderful review of The Hunger Games and Catching Fire and noted how the popularity of the series is really, um, catching fire:
It inspires in readers a kind of zeal I haven’t seen since the early days of Twilight. Stephen King is a major fan. So is Stephenie Meyer.
And so are we. In fact, I’m on my second reading of Catching Fire right now. But Tyler has the best bragging rights at OOM, because he got to meet Suzanne Collins during her recent visit to Scholastic:
Suzanne Collins is also featured in today’s USA Today, where she talks about Katniss’s boy troubles, her inspiration for the series, and -gasp – Book 3.
