My name is Katniss Everdeen. Why am I not dead? I should be dead. Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding. It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans -- except Katniss. The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay -- no matter what the personal cost.

My Thoughts
WOW. MockingJay was just EPIC! Seriously, it's so amazingly emotional and just as powerful. There are so many parts that I love and just as much hate about MockingJay.This is the kind of book that will devour your mind once you've read the final pages leaving you speechless and craving for more.

In this final installment of MockingJay, it starts with President Snow declaring war on all the districts. This leaves Katniss's district, District 12 demolished. Katniss is then left hopeless so she finds herself becoming the MockingJay in District 13 in order to give the districts hope and help fight the war against President Snow. As war breaks out Katniss has to all she can to protect her friends and family and rescue Petta from the grasps of the Capitol.

Katniss is brought out in ways you wouldn't think possible. She has changed psychologically and emotionally. It's disturbing yet overwhelming in the depths in which she posessed. Though, she survived everything she went through! That's the Katniss we all know. A true heroine. Needless to say, my heart aches even more for Peeta... Everything that he had to go through and endure was heartbreaking. Team Peeta ♥

MockingJay is extremely action packed. Something is always going on. It is definitely a page turner. The ending didn't leave me disappointed nevertheless I'm saddened to everything to come to an end. It left me feel like I'd lost something worth keeping. I truly love this book. Hell, I LOVE this series.

Collins has done an amazing job on The Hunger Games series. She always kept me guessing. I just wish however there was more moments of happiness for the characters that I love so much especially more scenes with Peeta and Katniss. But, I really cannot wait for the movie to come out now, 2012 is a really long way away! Damn! :D


  1. I agree completely. Peeta definitely makes this book. I realy liked all the secondary characters too, like the ones on Katniss's squad. I shed plenty of tears throughout this book, that's for sure. (FINNICK!!) Like you, I'm definitely anxious for the movie. I just wish it wasn't 7 months away...and the sequel is over 2 years away!

  2. OK! Hunger Games series seems to be everywhere now! I am too embarrassed to say I haven't read any of it yet...This is definitely next on my list!

  3. Such an awesome book! Actually, it was my least favourite in the series, but still great enough that the series remains one of my all time favourites. Glad you enjoyed it - I can't wait for the movie either!

  4. lol Reading your review makes me remember how I felt when I read Mockingjay! I too can't wait for the movie, I bet I'll be awesome!

  5. Suzanne Collins is a new author for me...but I'd love to add another autobuy author to my list!

    Thanks for the review :)

  6. omg i LOVED this book. It was really sad but possibly one of my all-time favorites because, like you, it was just SO EPIC!! It's unforgettable. And it totally leaves you speechless and wanting more! Great review!!! You've made me want to go back and re-read this series even though I just read them at the beginning of the summer :)


  7. I love the series but the last book wasn't as great as the first two!
    The ending just felt hurried and haphazard!
    Still a huge fan though!

  8. I have to admit - while I loved the series - the last book was my least favorite of the three. Though I did still love it. I just found that the first Hunger Games sucked me in so much more. I to am foaming at the mouth for the movies!

  9. I absolutely loved MJ...I hate when series come to an end so there was a bitter taste on my tounge as I went through it...but it was so action amazing that I loved every minute of it...great review!

  10. One of my favorit series also I like your review :)

  11. I enjoyed your review-thought this book was great too! I have a feeling I was one of the last to read it

  12. I love HG series so much! Could you hold a giveaway for this book? :)

  13. Loved the way she finished this series and hope that Suzanne Collins will continue with more, although I'm not sure how you'd ever be able to top this.
