Anyway, I'm back in action and am excited to introduce this week's book. After dragging my heels quite a bit, I'm finally digging into Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins.
I know, I know, I'm horribly behind. Especially considering that I started The Hunger Games trilogy way back in October and am just now getting around to finishing the series. I have a love-hate relationship with these books, and I've put off reading each installment for as long as possible. I need time to process each book and to get some emotional distance before diving into the next one. But I'm determined to finish the series before the movie comes out, and I'm excited (and nervous) to see what Collins has in store in this final book.
I'm sure most of you have already read The Hunger Games, and I hope that you'll come back next week to talk about it with me. Although I have mixed feelings about the trilogy, I enjoy discussing them to no end. Even when the books disappoint me, I find their failures and flaws so fascinating, and I love talking about every facet of them!
For those of you who are even more behind than me (no shame!), here's a brief description of Mockingjay:
"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."
Be sure to check in next week - I'm crossing my fingers for a lively discussion! Tomorrow I'll be talking about Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. That book was fascinating!
What have you been reading lately? Any Hunger Games fans out there? Are we excited for March 23rd?
