The Hunger Games VS The Mortal Instruments

Libertinas-co.

Ok, this was a wild idea. I had thought of it a while ago and now I’m putting my plan in action. ‘The Hunger Games VS The Mortal Instruments’ –  Battle of Books #1. Yes, I will be posting more Battles of Books. So lets, get, started!!!

THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS:

Libertinas-co.

THE HUNGER GAMES:

Katniss Everdeen – a girl who illegally shoots in the woods to keep her family alive. Main character. Best friend is Gale. She lives with her sister Prim (Primrose) and her mother. Katniss’s father died in a mine explosion.

Gale Hawthorne – A guy who has illegally shoots with Katniss is the woods to keep his family alive. Katniss is his best friend. Gale is 18. Does not become a tribute in The Games.

Peeta Mellark – A guy who sells bread and cakes and who seems to be named after Pita bread (coincidence!). He is in love with Katniss. Peeta is a bit of a cry baby to me. His mom whacks him if he’s being a bold boy.

THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: 

Clary Fairchild – Apparently a bookworm. BFF is Simon. She is a Shadowhunter but doesn’t know that until you read City of Bones, the first book in the series.

Jace Herondale – A Shadowhunter boy who lives with the Lightwoods. His parabatai is Alec Lightwood.

Simon Lewis – Clary’s best friend. He plays in a band which name is always changing. He’s in love with Isabelle Lightwood. Eventually Simon turns into a vampire. I thought he was as good as dead. But he didn’t die.

These two series are extremely popular with most book fans/worms who read these type of dystopian or YA books. But right now I’m going to see which series is the most popular. I am going to use ratings through Goodreads.

From what I’ve seen, I prefer the Hunger Games covers. The covers of the Mortal Instruments are nice and all, but I think the way on most editions of The Hunger Games they have a different form of the mockingjay, which I think works really well with the series. I’m not saying I don’t like the covers of The Mortal Instruments. I just prefer the covers of The Hunger Games.

The characters. Hmm. Well for the Hunger Games it’s obvious. My favourite characters are Finnick and Johanna. I don’t like Katniss because I think she is too perfect. Peeta is a cry baby. And Gale… He’s just not my type of character.

In The Mortal Instruments I like Isabelle and Simon best. I do like Clary but she’s not my favourite. Jace, I just don’t like him. And Alec, he’s too much of a goody goody two shoes.

I like both series. But I still can’t decide which is better.

  1. Those COVERS on The Hunger Games! So beautiful! In terms of covers they’d definitely win… but for the actual written content I like the Mortal Instruments better… City Of Bones anyway.
