    The Hunger Games was amazing. Here are some other great books, that you'll probably enjoy if you liked the Hunger Games. I'll summarize them for you.

    Guaranteed to love:

    -- Uglies by Scott Westerfeld (Tally is counting down the days until she turns 16, and is transformed from a repellent Ugly, into a stunning Pretty. But when Tally's new friend Shay decides she doesn't want to be Pretty, and runs away, Tally is offered a choice: Find Shay and bring her back, or never turn Pretty at all.)

    -- Matched by Ally Condie (In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die. So when Xander appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows that he is the one… until she sees another face flash for a second before the screen fades to black.)

    -- Delirium by Lauren Oliver (Lena can't wait until she gets her vaccination, and will never have to worry about the Deliria again. But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.)

    -- The Maze Runner by James Dashner (Thomas wakes up in a dark elevator, and can't remember anything but his first name. Living in the maze with the other boys seems odd, but then someone arrives at the maze who changes everything.)

    -- Unwind by Neal Shusterman (In a world where unwanted teens are unwound, or in a divided state, Connor, Risa and Lev are thrown together on a harrowing cross country journey to escape unwinding)

    -- Divergent by Veronica Roth (In Beatrice's world, everyone is sorted into a faction at 16. When her testing results are inconclusive, she makes a choice that surprises even herself. Her choice brings deadly secrets, and terrifying dangers, including surviving the competitive initiation)

    -- The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan (In Mary's world, you must trust in the sisterhood, and understand that the unconsecrated will never relent. But then there's a breach in the fence, and Mary's forced to run, all while learning about the sisterhood and its secrets.)

    -- Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (As a fireman, Guy's job is to burn books)

    -- Lord of the Flies by William Golding (When teenage boys are stranded on an island together, they struggle to survive, and change in the process)

    -- 1984 by George Orwell (In Oceania, Winston hates the Party, and Big Brother, so he decides to keep a thought diary, knowing that eventually the thought police will come for him)

    Also try (don't have room to summarize these):

    The Cirque du Freak series by Darren Shan

    The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

    The His Dark Materials trilogy by Phillip Pullman

    Across the Universe by Beth Reevis

    The Maximum Ride series by James Patterson

    The Gone series by Michael Grant

    Source(s): I read, and all of these books are amazing. Happy Reading :).

    I love the Hunger Games!!

    Matched by Ally Clondie and The Uglies by Scott Westerfield are the only books I've found so far that are pretty similar to the Hunger Games.

    The Hunger Games is an excellent read and I have recommended it to many people, but about halfway through the cover came off and it started to fall apart.

    I'm a fan of Clockwork Angel, and The Mortal Instruments books, both by Cassandra Clare. These books are great to read and re-read also.
