Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event spotlighting future releases that we're excited about, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

There is no other choice possible for me today. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, the final Hunger Games book, will finally be on the shelves next week! It's out Tuesday 24th in the US, Wednesday 25th in the UK (which is killing me, and will mean I'm MIA from Twitter/probably facebook/all blogs from Tuesday until I've finished it Weds afternoon because I will not risk having ANYTHING about it spoiled for me. Don't even want to hear opinions on it being good/bad/otherwise).

If you haven't yet read The Hunger Games and the second book Catching Fire, you are missing out on one of the very best YA books/trilogies that exist. You should absoulutly check them out asap. I didn't for a long time cause I didn't think I'd like it. I've never been soo wrong about a pre-read judgement. See my reviews for The Hunger Games and Catching Fire for my take on them. I plan on rereading them both this weekend in anticipation. Next Wednesday can't get here soon enough for me!
US cover
"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."
