Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins is the third book in the Hunger Games trilogy.  Have I told you yet how much I loved these books?  Well when I read the last word in this book I had a break down and sobbed my eyes out.  For like 10 minutes straight.  I had to come back to read the Epilogue after I composed myself.  And then cried again.

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.

I loved, loved the Hunger Game books!! And I was just as obsessed as you seemed to be. I tell everyone I know about these books. They all think I am crazy- another teen book. But this trilogy is #1 on my favorite book list!! I am soo glad you liked them too!

I don't remember reading a single bad review of these books..

Oh wow, thank you (for your comment on my blog) I think I should post about what I think lead up to all this, and what comes next- but what comes next would be all my hopes and aspirations for the country...
