Catching Fire Countdown!

I have to admit, I haven't been as excited about the Catching Fire movie as I thought I'd be. It will be out in little over a month, and I hardly even noticed the wait. That being said, I have been a little distracted by a crawly little monster who could care less about things he can't teeth on. BUT! After seeing this trailer...I'm super pumped again.


It got me thinking...
One of the reasons I may not be as excited about this movie as I was with the first is that I didn't enjoy the second and third books as much as I did the first book (don't get me wrong, I LOVED all three of them).

I think it's really hard for authors to outdo the first book in a series. Even in the movie world, sequels are never better than the original film. As a writer, one of my goals is to be better...tell a better story, in a better way, with better writing. It's hard to do (and I hope I succeeded in writing Uprising). One of the reasons I love Harry Potter so much is because every book just got better and better for me.

What series got better and better for you?
