I've heard tons about it, and it sounds great, but I'm reading another series right now, and even if I wasn't, I'm practically broke at the moment.

Sure! Here's the summary and a two reviews:
WINNING MEANS FAME AND FORTUNE.
LOSING MEANS CERTAIN DEATH.
THE HUNGER GAMES HAVE BEGUN...
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.
Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before -- and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

Doesn't that sound awesome? It's for ages 12 and older, because of the violence of kid against kid. Here's the author's reasons: [url=http://www.scholastic.com/thehungergames/videos/age-of-readers.htm]http://www.scholastic.com/thehungergames/videos/age-of-readers.htm[/url]

Reviews:
"I was so obsessed with this book I had to take it with me out to dinner and read it under the edge of the table so I wouldn't have to stop reading. It kept me up for several nights in a row, because even after I was finished, I just lay in bed wide awake thinking about it.... The Hunger Games is amazing."
-Stephanie Meyer, author of the Twilight Saga

"[A] plot-driven blend of suspense, science fiction, and romance."
-USA Today
Plus many more!!!
Hope this helps!!!

No, I think the book that you are talking about is Twilight.

same! i cannot wait until Mockingjay. For the people who haven't read the Hunger Games series, I really recommend you do! here's a summary:

Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister
in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United
States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were
defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send
one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The
Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation
may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When Kat's
sister is chosen by lottery, Kat steps up to go in her place. (got from BarnesandNobles.com

Okay, if you read the book, who do you like better, Peeta or Gale?

I actually ship PeetaxMadge, but I just ship it because Peeta is my favorite boy character and Madge is my second favorite girl character. Rue is my favorite, but she's twelve, so...

This book was way better than PJO, in my humble opinion.

Here's how I would summarize it:
In a the future, in a land called Panem, there are twelve districts, all unfairly governed by the Capitol. Capitol thinks itself better than everyone else, so they periodically hold the Hunger Games. The Hunger Games is a televised event in which tributes (two people chosen from each district) fight to the death in an arena.

In District Twelve, there is a girl called Katniss, age sixteen. She has entered her name to be chosen for the Hunger Games several times in exchange for food for her family. Her twelve year-old sister, Prim, has only entered her name once, and only because it is required for twelve year-olds. So when her name is chosen everyone is shocked and disappointed. Why? Because Prim is the sweet, innocent little girl that everyone likes. Without realizing what she was doing, Katniss goes in instead of her sister.

Will Katniss make it through the Hunger Games, or will she be just another forgotten tribute?
