Waiting on Wednesday: Mockingjay (Hunger Games, #3)

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This book really needs no introduction from me, but I am ECSTATIC for the August 24th release of Mockingjay (the third and FINAL installment) by Suzanne Collins. Obviously MAJOR SPOILERS ahead for those who haven't read the other two books yet. If you want to read my thoughts, they can be found here: The Hunger Games & Catching Fire.

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.

From Goodreads

I mean WOW. Honestly, I'm kind of speechless after that kind of a set-up. The first two novels in the series were incredibly powerful and wrought with emotion & action. This one promises to follow in its predecessors' footsteps. Unfortunately for all us book reviewers, Scholastic has decided to forgo making any ARCs for general distribution. We will all have to wait patiently until the release date. While I am not a huge promoter of fansites in general, I must say that does seem to be on the right track with their content, information, and layout. Check them out in order to satiate your Hunger Games needs until the release.

What are you waiting on this week?
