Well, since I don’t know if I will finish Pride & Prejudice in time to make it my second review of the week (to meet my 2 per week quota), I will do a review on Mockingjay.

The book is so amazing that it left me speechless.


It is really beyond words, but I will try to sum it up for you.

This is the final installment in the Hunger Games series and it follows Katniss in a battle against the Capitol. At the end of Catching Fire, Katniss and Peeta were separated and District 12 was destroyed. You soon learn that the rebellion saved Katniss but didn’t get to Peeta in time so he is now being held captive by the Capitol. The rebels are now using Katniss as their public figure head and make her shoot small campaign ads to encourage people to join the revolution. That is all I can really say without spoiling anything.

Now, you may be wondering why, if I think it is beyond amazing, did I only give it 4 stars?
Because this book has too much death for my liking. I get that the people in this book are at war and that means causalities but that doesn’t mean I condone killing people I love like Finnick, Cinna, Prim, and several people I liked but cannot remember their names.

I loved the character development in this. I LOVED LOVED LOVED reading more about Finnick, seeing his past and just more of him in general. <3<3 If you loved the first two books in this series then you’ll definitely love this one. Despite the excessive death, this book does have a happily ever after and Katniss ends up with the man of her choice
