77 Saturday – Catching Fire


In conjunction with AusYABloggers, who have an awesome new Saturday prompt meme thingy going on over on their blog, I bring you 77 Saturday!

Seventy-Seven Saturday Rules:

  1. Pick up a book (your current read, or the closest book to you, or your next read, etc)
  2. Turn to page 77
  3. Find a snippet, sentence or paragraph you like.
  4. Share it on your blog or Twitter or Instagram and link back to us (AusYABloggers) and use #77Saturday


Title: Catching Fire (10th anniversary edition is what is photographed)
Author: Suzanne Collins
Released: 01 September 2009
Publisher: Scholastic

Well, I’ve learned one thing today. This place is not a larger version of District 12. Our fence is unguarded and rarely charged. Our Peacekeepers are unwelcome but less brutal. Our hardships evoke more fatigue than fury. Here in 11, they suffer more acutely and feel more desperation. President Snow is right. A spark could be enough to set them ablaze.


It took me a moment to remember this part of the book, but I remember it clearly now. This is the first point, I think (forgive my memory) that it really feels like everything could change. That there could be hope for the districts of Panem to actually revolt against the tyrannical leader that is President Snow.

NB: I thought I’d keep going with my special editions of The Hunger Games series. I hope book 3 comes before next Saturday so I can continue on!

  1. I’ve never seen these editions before Star and they’re absolutely beautiful! I’ve got the foil edition set but so desperately want these now too! It’s been so long since I’ve read the series, might put it on my TBR for over Christmas for a reread.

    1. They’re the new 10th anniversary editions! I am absolutely in love with them. I want the foil set, too, because I’m a weak, weak girl for pretty editions of books.
      I need to join you in that reread, I think! ♥
