Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
I know I sound crazy right?
Even throughout the books I had to force myself to stop or set the book down for a minute to absorb what had happened. That is when you know a book is really good.
I don't want to give you the summary from Amazon because it gives away too much from the first two books. Really it is best to go into these books knowing nothing so you can ride the highs and lows without knowing exactly what is going to happen next.
This book was very different from the first two. I kept wanting to just know what the resolution was going to be. It took me longer to get through this one. Maybe 3 days?
But oh my it was so emotional. It was oh so bittersweet. Just like any book, I think I internalized what the characters went through and the story to my own life and experiences and hopes and dreams and it was overwhelming.
It's only been a few days since I finished the book, but I already miss the characters. I already want to re-read them and live the story all over again.
5 out of 5 stars for sure.
