We start the best of the books in the The Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire. In this episode, we unpack the six months from Katniss and Peeta’s victory tour to their return to the capital as tributes in the Quell. It’s finally time for some love triangle in this story, and we are both heavily on Team Peeta, even bringing back some of our hatred for Jacob Black from Twilight. We admire how Katniss is handling the trauma and drama in her life, and we have a great time exploring this section of the plot which is pretty much skipped over in the movie. Of course, we’re preparing for the arena and the Quell as Katniss plans to save Peeta this time rather than herself.
Next week we will be reading chapters 15-27 of book 2 in the series, Catching Fire.
