Friday Book Club


I read...

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins


 Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss's family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins's groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year. (via)

My Thoughts:
I absolutely LOVED Mockingjay. {I’m pretty sure I said that about all 3 books in the Hunger Games Trilogy, but I meant it each time. It’s become one of my favorites, right up there with Harry Potter.}

I had the hardest time putting this book down and did it only when I had no other choice. If it was an option, I just couldn’t do it... I had to know what happened! And so I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning not once, but twice, to finish the book. The next-day headache behind my eyes was totally worth it each time.

I really enjoyed how the complexity of the characters and their relationships, the themes and the mood evolved throughout the series, even though the characters only aged 1-2 years from the first book to the last. This was the most emotional of the three books, and I cried several times. The other two books each had a few parts that caused me to shed a tear or two, but I actually cried this time. Which was probably funny to see, since it was like 3am and J was passed out in bed next to me.
