You might also like the Divergent series by Veronica Roth, i read both of them in under a week but now have to wait til Fall of 2013 for the third, but they were fantastic,

Matched, Crossed, Reached Trilogy. It has that teen romance dystopian genre, too. 1st person is female.

Try the Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. You won't be sorry.

What is the draw here? I find the subject matter gruesome and not something I would ever read, let alone my teenager. Spring Roses

I stick with authors. There is more than just a story in the Hunger Games, there is belief in the unbelievable and seeing commonalities in both our world and theirs along with wanting to see the characters through the ordeal. This type of personal ownership is a skill of the author, so follow authors you like. Read Gregor, the Overlander (The Underground Chronicles.) It is Suzanne Collin's first book(s). She writes youth books, but I immensely enjoy her writing. You enjoy a book, more for the writer's style and composition of characters. If you want to read more of the same, try Gregor. Suzanne Collins does not disappoint. The more of the Chronicles you read the more you enjoy them as you become invested in the characters. Suzanne has a gift of characterization, making them come alive and believable.

Try the "Wool" series by Hugh Howey. Another excellent post-apocalypse, but different.

If you loved the Hunger Games you must read the Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. This story also takes place post apocalypse, but plays on every teen's passionate desire to look as good as everybody else. The Uglies projects a future world in which a compulsory operation at sixteen wipes out physical differences and makes everyone pretty by conforming to an ideal standard of beauty. It is a great series and a must read for all Hunger Games lovers!!!

The Delirium Series by Lauren Oliver is great. Similar to the Matched, Hunger Games, and Divergent series

I agree JR Ward. The Black Dagger series is and excellently written and developed series, it is not for juveniles.

i, too, was sad when it ended. i read the giver series (the giver, gathering blue, messenger, son) it was pretty good.

Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series is amazing.

try reading it and you will understand that the books are far more then just killing others. There is a story of the human spirit and understanding when things are wrong that ordinary people will become the heroes

Be sure to read the fast moving and exciting new Common Justice by Pam Bingemann!
This mystery is set in the South and has many twists and turns right up to the astonishing end! You can only get it on Amazon.com right now but is scheduled for hard back this Spring. This new author will make you want more!!!

Battle Royale - Koushun Takam

It's about a group of kids who are forced to fight each other on a island.The violence is extremely graphic at times and is not for the faint of heart.

Lord Of the Flies - William Golding

An allegory on The survival of the fittest.A group of school children are stranded on a deserted island and form two community's that eventually come to blows.This is one of the few books I had to read in school that I still love.

I HIGHLY recommend the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. I've also heard good things about the Maze Runner series and Delirium series but I still recommend Divergent. It has a 4.38/5 rating on Goodreads with over 225,000 ratings.

I felt the same. I think this is just what the Author was trying to get across to us too. It matches basically the way our present government would treat us, if they could. At least to us Americans. I found allot of the information useful. Allot of survival tips. I Loved the Hunger Games Trilogy ! I wish the Trilogy would come out. I liked the first one, but felt they rushed it. I want More of the same style of book as this Trilogy ! I need more ! LOL

Try Surviving Antarctica: Reality TV 2083 by Andrea White. It has a similar theme.
