Summary: After surviving a fight to the death, Katniss Everdeen has to adjust to her new life of privilege while everyone she knows and loves still struggles to put food on the table. Not to mention she’ll have to figure out what to do about the two young men in love with her.
Review: The worst part about this book was coming to the last page and realizing I have to wait a whole freaking YEAR before the next book comes out.
This woman sure do write good. Best love triangle I’ve ever read. How does she make me sway from Team Gale to Team Peeta and back again, over and over?
The suspense of the 75th Hunger Games consumed me. I had about 20 pages to go when I had to leave for work one morning in order to make it to an early meeting. So I stuck it in my bag and brought it to work with me.
That day was absolute TORTURE. I had meetings all morning, with no time to go back to my desk in between. Then at lunch, I had only a couple minutes to read before my afternoon meetings started. And again, no time at my desk between meetings. WHY ME?!?
Finally, FINALLY my last meeting was over and it was time to go home. On the way to the car, I threw the keys to my partner and pulled the book out of my bag. When I got in the car, I propped the book open on my knees and started reading. THEN I put my seatbelt on. It’s all about priorities, people.
Suzanne Collins, if there’s anything I can do to help you focus on writing over the next few months, you just let me know. I can walk dogs, babysit kids, formulate a magical body spray that will make bathing unnecessary. You name it.
