"The Hunger Games is a battle to the death with only one survivor. Katniss is a survivor. She is determined to stay alive, but friendship and romance start to get in the way when she becomes too close to her opponents.
This series is my all time favorite book. If I had one thing to say it would be Read This Book!!!"
"Gracelings are individuals with a special talent. Some talents are stupid, some are useful, but whatever the talent is they excel at it. Katsa's graceling is that she is a gifted fighter, virtually invincible. Which makes her a perfect assassin and a desirable pawn for those in power.
"Alanna switches places with her twin brother so she can train to be a knight while her brother takes her place studying to be a mage. Alanna is inspiring and you will find yourself wishing the series will never end.
There are four books starring Alanna. This is Tamora Pierce's first book and the place to start."
"Wild magic takes place years after the completion of the 'Alanna' series and stars a new heroine, Daine. You don't need to read the 'Alanna' series but I would recommend it. This is the my favorite of Tamora Pierce's many series.
Daine is strong, funny, and extremely likable. The story also has a touching romance."
"If you haven't heard of this series you must have been living under a rock for the past few years. I think the enthusiasm over this series is definitely over done, but I have to add this series because the books are very well written and entrancing."
