Books to Love Like The Hunger Games

"I lift things up and put them down."

That's a quote from a commercial, that perfectly sums up my reading style. At any given time, I'm in the middle of at least three books. Rare is the read that can solely hold my attention from start to finish.

The Hunger Games was one such book. The only time I put it down was to hurry and grab a copy of Catching Fire.

Adrenaline inducing reads are often the most memorable. Here are four that, just like The Hunger Games, I can't forget:

Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder- I literally stayed up 'til three in the morning to finish this one. Yelena is, if possible, even stronger than Katniss, with a stubborn streak miles wide.

Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick- He could love her or kill her. The tension arising from Patch's actions is what makes this book unputdownable. Is that not a word? It should be.

My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent- Banshees aren't too common in YA fiction. Watching Kaylee figure out what's wrong with her is irresistible. Also, just look at that cover.

Across the Universe by Beth Revis- You wake up in a spaceship after being a victim of a murder attempt. What do you do? I would curl up in a fetal position and stay there. Thankfully, Amy is not anything like me and takes readers on a wildly exciting adventure.

These four reads all kept me guessing, just like The Hunger Games. A splash of suspense and a huge does of intrigue make for an adrenaline inducing read.
