The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins

The world was on the verge of destruction, before it was tamed. Set in the shining city of Panem, built on the ruins of what was once North America, surrounded by twelve districts each unique from the other and each represented by 2 Tributes aged between 12 and 18 who must participate in The Hunger Games, a glamorous fight to the death designed to remind the Districts who holds the authority, and televised 24/7.

Our heroine Katniss comes from the poorest of the disctricts, 12, nicknamed the Seam, she must hunt illegally with best/almost friend Gale (a smoldering boy of course) in the nearby woods and sell it for what she can to support herself, younger sister Prim and an emotionally unstable mother. That is before she volunteers to take her sisters place as this years Tribute, of course the viewers love this, not to mention the fake romance between her and tribute partner, the sweet Peeta Mellark, Katniss can only hope she'll have enough sponsors to keep lying until the twisted end.

But fighting for her own survival in this confusing web of deceit, truth and love and that of the few friends she finds, whilst also taking down the other tributes is more than difficult, there is no option, and there can only be one winner.

Brilliantly written, utterly addictive, full of humour and quirky, loveable characters this futuristic gladiator book is suitable for anyone from age 12 up ( as long as you don't a mind a bit of blood).

City of Bones, Cassandra Clare

A riveting book for all teen readers! Set in modern day New York, Clare drags out every one of New Yorks secrets, from Shadow Hunter hating Downworlders including everyone's favourite vampires and werewolves to the creepy Silent Brothers and hard partying Warlock who knows more than he's letting on.

Clary thoguht she was just a slightly geeky 15 yr old girl, but when her mother goes missing and Clary returns to a demented croccodile demon stalking her destroyed house, Clary is forced into taking things into her own hands. In this fast paced teen novel Clary faces sexy tattoed boys, jealous girls, and dangerous weapons in the quest to find her imprisioned mother, while still keeping her friendships intact.
"Cassie's writing makes my toes curl with envy. She is the rare writer who can write fast-paced dramatic fantasy with gorgeous language and memorable characters that you grow to love and worry about, as well as really funny bits that will make you honestly laugh and remember them and repeat them to your friends. It is rare to find someone who can do any one of those things well; to find someone who can do them all is just dangerous."
Holly Black, author of Tithe and Valiant
