Waiting on Wednesday: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

I’ve written a lot of Waiting on Wednesday posts, and I figure I should blog about this now, especially since it’s what, a little over a month until this book comes out?

So altogether now: squee!

Mockingjay by Suzanne CollinsMockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Release Date: August 24, 2010

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins’s groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.

I read Hunger Games and Catching Fire a few weeks after Ondoy happened, and those books were an excellent escape from what we experienced then. I gobbled the books up in six days and left me wanting for more.

I realized that I never got to write reviews for the first two books of the trilogy…so I plan to write one before Mockingjay comes out — perhaps on Pinoy Pop. :)

I know  many of you are excited for this book, too. Are you? If not (gasp! Why aren’t you excited for this? This is better than prenatal vitamins!), what are you waiting on this Wednesday?

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
