Notice:


As of June 9, 2012 I will no longer be accepting e-books for review. This is due to the overwhelming
demand of reviews, work and night classes taking up a lot of my spare time. It
is taking me several months to read and post reviews therefore until “my to be
reviewed list” is smaller I will no longer accept any more e-books for review.
I am extremely sorry.

Review: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins + Giveaway

Mockingjay

Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding. Excerpt from Suzanne’s website.

I honestly don’t know what to say about this book without giving anything away...I think my mind is still trying to wrap itself around the series being complete.

I thought the story was going to go a different way. Characters that I thought were going to die didn’t and characters that I thought were going to be safe weren’t. I did cry over that but I didn’t cry nearly as much as I thought I was going to. I was kinda let down by that fact.

Certain characters pissed me off with their actions – like really pissed me off. I almost jumped off the Team Peeta train and wasn’t going to hop on any other train! I really liked the last chapter of the book – it gave me an overall closure to the series.

I did find some parts of the novel I had to re-read because I was like what? What just happened? It was like something was missing and I was a bit confused until I re-read.

I thought Mockingjay could have been better. It doesn’t live up to Catching Fire or The Hunger Games in my opinion but it was still pretty good.

  1. Thanks for the giveaway! I'm a Hunger Games junkie! (But then again who isn't?) Mockingjay did annoy me at some points but I just feel that some of it was just necessary. I did hate that certain characters had to die though and I definitely did cry! I loved the ending though! She ended up with the right guy! I though Gale was a huge jerk though! He grows up with this girl, acts like he's in love with her, and then never speaks to her again? Rude.
