Finally Mockingjay!

Today's the day we've all been waiting for! No, not the first day of school...It's time for the final installment in The Hunger Games trilogy!!!! Now I just have to make it through the work day and book it home to start reading!

But before the excitement begins, I wanted to share a message from Suzanne Collins herself that she released just a few days ago:

"One of the most important things to me is that everyone in the world is going to be able to experience the final book of The Hunger Games all at the same time, and be able to discover what happens in the book without hearing about it elsewhere first. Word will certainly travel fast, but I urge you – before or immediately after August 24th – to please respect the other Hunger Games fans worldwide and avoid sharing any spoilers, so that the conclusion of Katniss’s story can unfold for each reader the way it was meant to unfold."

Okay, you have my solemn vow that even though I'm a superfast reader and will probably be up until the wee hours of the night finishing this very book, I will not post any spoilers. (I wouldn't do that to you guys!)


So here's to happy endings...may this series conclude the way I'm hoping!

Go team Peeta!
Have a great day everyone!

Yes, its best for fans to discover the story how it was meant to be discovered. (Secretly I'm scanning the internet for just one specific spoiler- Gale or Peeta? I HAVE TO KNOW!)

Aack! I have to hurry and finish book 2.

Stay away from GoodReads because there are spoilers.

I'm looking forward to reading this too, but don't know when I'll get to it. I can't ever decide which team I'm on. I'm on Team Indecisive.
