The Hunger Games - Suzanne  Collins This was one of the most horrifying, and also one of the best books I've read in a long time. I won't waste time on an annoying recap. The synopsis is up above, and besides, everyone knows the story by now.

One of the best aspects of the trilogy is that it isn't truly a love triangle. I'm pretty grateful for that. I never felt Katniss would end up with Gale.
