The most recent super hit book is Susane Collins’ The Hunger Games. She wrote the first book inspired just by watching television. She started to change channels until some content in there flash her head and scribble down the series. The book rapidly full up of fans loving Katniss Everdeen and her anarchy with The Capitol that obligerated children to fight until death.
