If you’ve got a friend who is into young adult literature, then they’re probably reading this book right now. Or they’ve already finished it. I bought it on Tuesday, the day it was released, and I’m about halfway through.
It’s kind of killing me not to read it all in one sitting, but since it’s the last of the Hunger Games series, I’m trying to go slow and savor it. Suzanne Collins is one of my writing heroes. The books in this trilogy well-written, have a captivating heroine (who is such a fighter, a survivor, and she messes up all the time, like good heroines should), and there’s enough romance and humor sprinkled amongst the tension, heartbreak, and violence that this dystopia isn’t completely without hope.
Since I’m reading so slowly (for me, anyway), I’m having to skip posts from one of my favorite blogs, Forever Young Adult, because they’re doing a read-along discussion, and I think they’re probably reading faster than I am.
On a side note, my friend Kristen is blogging now, and she’s just recently started the Hunger Games books. And if you haven’t read them yet, stop reading this post and go get them. Seriously.
