All 3 books in The Hunger Games trilogy are proverbial page-turners. Fantastic & creative plots, well-written, well performed. But the content is about some of the ugliest, most violent sides of human nature, so it's not cheerful or uplifting.
Having said that, because the books are written for youth, the language is clean & there's no explicit sex. There is a wonderful love triangle that is only resolved at the very end of the trilogy, in Mockingjay. Throughout the 3 books, there's meaty, thought-provoking content, worthy of consideration & discussion by both adults & youth.
These are books worth reading, but don't read them if you're in a funk. Life during & around the Hunger Games is challenging & exhausting, & reading about it shares some of that exhaustion. Despite that, I kept reading & reading & reading & hated to see it end.
