Succumbed and bought The Hunger Games trilogy in a book sale at work, well £5 for all 3 was too good to miss.

I bought this one not long after it came out SM and I've not finished it, I found it quite difficult to get into - do post how you get on! :) I am intending to try again another time.

I keep looking for the 3rd book, but no sign of it yet! I'm reading "Incubus" under her Carol Goodman name (not the "Demon Lover" under her Juliet Dark name. Her name changes make my head hurt!)

yep that name change threw me too, I hate it when they do that :mad: I assume it's to distinguish it from her more literary work as Carol Goodman.

I don't think the 3rd book is out yet, not sure if it even has a title. Her website wasn't saying anything about it last time I looked a couple of weeks ago.
