Mockingjay: Suzanne Collins


Book Review


One of my beautiful friends Emily actually kind of forced me into reading this series since she's absolutely crazy about The Hunger Games. By the end of Catching Fire I was dumbfounded at the last couple of paragraphs and I couldn't wait to get my hands onto Mockingjay. Now let me tell you, there was a lot of tears and a lot of screaming.


Since Katniss made it she's still weary of what is going on around her and she knows that she was the spark of a new rebellion since The Hunger Games. I give a big round of applause to Suzanne because this book is so heartfelt and so touching with so many twists and turns and shocking situations. I couldn't help but think to myself that sometimes my life is like this... not the bombing and violence but sometimes I feel what Katniss feels, loneliness, hope, etc.


I think the author could have added Johanna into a couple more scenes because she is such a strong character and without her, Katniss wouldn't have been here today. Finnick and Annie are just so damn perfect and then a sledgehammer was thrown and a much-loved protagonist dies. Why? Why?



The ending is so beauiful and I couldn't help but shed a tear, I actually cried for a good two hours after I finished Mockingjay. I recommend The Hunger Games series to anyone who loves Divergent, The Maze Runner, Vampire Academy, Evertruth.


Keep reading and stay happy everyone!


Love always,
