Mockingjay Review

I finished reading Mockingjay over the weekend.  I really liked it.  It was different then the first two books of the series so I feel like I read it as a different pace.  Once I got to about the last 100 pages I couldn't put it down.  I had to read to the end to see what would happen.

I won't have any spoilers in case you haven't read yet.  I will say this.  I was surprised.  As I was reading the book I kept trying to guess what would happen next and how it would end and I could never guess right.  I am actually happy about that. I love that I couldn't figure it out b/c it kept me reading.

I've had very "deep" conversations about this book with some of you. . . I know some weren't pleased with the ending but I'm ok with it.

I haven't read in a while so I'm really happy that these books got me back into reading.  Since all the tv shows are ending soon anyways this is a great time to read more.  I loved all 3 of these books with the 2nd one being my favorite.

Now that I have an iPad I plan to download my next book.  I think I will read Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.  It has excellent reviews.  I also would like to read The Immortal Life of Heneritta Lacks.  I've heard great things about this book as well.  Have you read either?  Do you have any other reading suggestions for me?


  1. Ahhh I rather enjoyed it...a lot!! I'm not sure which one is my fav - I can't decide!

    How did your walk go?! ox

  2. The 2nd one was my favorite too!
    Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is one of my favorite written books! I thought it was soooo well written. I loved it. I NEVER want to see the movie tho. I think it would ruin it for me, lol.

  3. I was absolutely sucked in by the last part of MJ. But, I think CF was also my favorite of the three. I have no idea what to read next either. But EL&IC doesn't really look like my kind of book. Hope you enjoy it though!

  4. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close was very good! Enjoy!
