IMO the hunger games are over rated. They are obviously far better then most teen novels, but the editing on at least the first book was so poor I wanted to cry. Soooo many grammatical errors, it's not even funny.
As for what I'm reading now....
The DSM IV whoopie...

I finished reading I Heard You Paint Houses. It was good. If you don't understand how the Teamsters Unions and Mafia works, then you would probably not like/appreciate this book.
I started & now am nearly finished with In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks by Adam Carolla. He was on former shows such as, The Man Show with Jimmy Kimmel and LoveLine with Dr. Drew Pinsky.
This book is great and very funny. Carolla is a comedian, so the book is written similar to a stand-up act.
The book is basically about how masculinity is disappearing in America.

I am reading, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. A very easy read, but enormously entertaining. Set in a dystopian future, it basically boils down to an online treasure hunt for the greatest video game Easter Egg of all time. The winner becomes the new owner of the largest video game company in the world (picture something 5x the size and wealth of Microsoft and Apple combined).
The secret to the hunt is tied in the Owner's past, so the virtual reality world is chock full of 70s and 80s references (Music, TV shows and movies, video games, books, RPGs, etc).
Pushing up the ante, I know you've got to see me,
Read 'em and weep, the dead man's hand again . . .

Almost finished with The Way of Kings, the first in Brandon Sanderson's epic Stormlight Archive series. Really liking it, and the reveals at the end of this book have me looking forward to the rest of the series. Sanderson and Patrick Rothfuss are really the best epic fantasy authors of this generation.
Next up - Robopocalypse by Daniel Wilson. Been on my list for a while, and I feel like doing something sci-fi. We'll see if it holds a candle to World War Z.
Want to improve your game? The best thing to buy is more paint and more field fees.
I can't dumb it down to your level because I'm scared of heights.

Lost the Daylight
Wideacre by Philippa Gregory, and Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.
The first one is pretty good so far. I'm not as attached to Abraham, though I just started it. I'm glad I downloaded it on a sale day.
The correct question is, "Why don't I need another gun?"
How strange to see a lagomorph of such bravery.
