Waiting on Wednesday - 25

I'm waiting for...

The Hunger Games: The Victors
Book 3 (title is not official... yet)
by Suzanne Collins

-because the first two books are AMAZING

-note: the cover for the third book has not yet been revealed, this is just amazon's placeholder

Release date: August 24, 2010

Description of book 1 from the amazon:
Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When Kat's sister is chosen by lottery, Kat steps up to go in her place.


Description of book 2 from the amazon:
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.

Description of book 3:
not yet available, but more of the same action and adventure
