Also, I just finished 3 excellent books:
1 & 2: Hunger Games and Catching Fire (Mockingjay in two days!). Fast-paced. And first person present tense?! It works. These books live up to the hype.
3: The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. This will be the new epic fantasy series of this generation. Loved it. The three viewpoints kept me anxiously page-turning (through all 1008 of them). That's right, Sanderson left out the boring parts that plague many gargantuan fantasy epics. The world-building is mind-blowing, the magic systems innovative, and most importantly, the characters realistic and lovable.
