Mockingjay Review


It's been almost ten days since Mockingjay hit the shelves.

I'm so sad that it's already been released and I've devoured it. The end of a favorite book series is hard to swallow.  It's like when I was finished with Breaking Dawn...I just didn't want it to end. Ever. That's why I sent Steph all of those desperate letters.  Pleading with her to continue the story.  Wolves, half-breeds, vamps...I didn't care.

I feel the same way with Mockingjay.
I just didn't want it to end, but if the Hunger Games had to come to an end, Suzanne did a fabulous job tying up all the loose ends.

This third book was nothing short of spectacular.
She had all the important elements...suspense, thrills, romance.  It was all accounted for and present.  I loved the twists and turns of this final installment.  She kept the reader guessing until the very end.  I had a few possible endings conjured up in my mind and I didn't guess it.  I wasn't even close really.

To wrap up the high-lights, without giving any spoilers...

Katniss is still the fierce rebel,
girl on fire,
she's been from the beginning...
and she's still saving Peeta.

Gale is still at her side.

Haymitch still has her back.

Together they fight the Capitol until the very end.

The Mockingjay lives!

I cheered towards the end
and kissed my book.

I was in nerd heaven.

I definitely don't regret this...
 
I still feel just as passionate about it as the day I got it.

If you haven't read the series yet (even though I've told you to countless times), you should run out and buy the whole trilogy!  You won't be sorry!!

If you loved the Hunger Games, then I suggest you give The Maze Runner by James Dashner a try.  I read it last year after Catching Fire came out and I love it!  The sequel, The Scorch Trials, will be out on October, 12th!

What book or series of books are you into right now?

I have the Hunger Games downstairs in the garage. I really must pick it up. Anything that you are so passionate about has to be good.

Can you believe I haven't read a book all summer? I am so ashamed of myself.

I still haven't started Hunger Games. Oops. I started reading The Hidden Diary of Marie Antoinette. :) It's good though, I'm really enjoying it.

I need to remind myself to read Hunger Games.

I had to skim all the way down this post and not read it, as I bought the series on my Kindle and it's up next to read- thanks for letting me know about it though!!!
