TBR Pile

This TBR is focused on ONE book that is coming out TODAY! As you read this I am probably on my way to my local bookstore to buy my copy and crack it open. It is on the top of my pile! I am talking about CATCHING FIRE by Suzanne Collins, sequel to THE HUNGER GAMES.

Published September 1st 2009 by Scholastic Press
Hardcover, 432 pages

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

Another one on my list that many of my friends have read and enjoyed is SHIVER by Maggie Stiefvater
Published August 1st 2009 by Scholastic Press
Hardcover, 392 pages

For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf--her wolf--is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again.

Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human--or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.

Can't wait to read your review on Catching Fire! I really liked the first one and totally wanted more when it was done!

I'm not sure about Shiver though...it sounds a little too much like the Living Dead. And I did not like that book.
