Waiting on Wednesday - Erin

I was inspired by Jill's fantastic meme over at Breaking the Spine and thought we here at Lit Snit would not only talk about what we've read, but start to look forward to talk about what we're dying to read.

Mockingjay (Hunger Games, #3)

by Suzanne Collins
Scholastic Press
Releases August 24th

From Goodreads:

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.

This is a popular YA book that I'm sure anyone who has read The Hunger Games and Catching Fire is also dying to get their hands on, but there are plenty of people who aren't big YA or sci-fi readers who have yet to discover these fantastic books. To them I would say: run, do not walk, to your local book store or library and read these books ASAP. You don't have to be a fan of either genre to enjoy Collins's trilogy. Not only are the Hunger Games books thrilling, emotional, and thought-provoking, but Katniss might be one of my favorite female protagonists ever. I'll definitely be in stores on August 24th to pick up my copy of the exciting conclusion to this brilliant trilogy.

What books are you looking forward to this summer?


  1. Yea! Welcome to glad you're participating! And, so happy to have your great blog on my radar!

  2. Thanks, Jill! This was such a great idea, we're glad to be a part of it!

  3. I've never read Suzanne Collins' work, but you had me at "made it out of the bloody arena alive." I love a strong protagonist, a woman who can hold her own, and has the confidence to not care what other people think. Katniss sounds like she fits into that description perfectly. Thanks for the review!

  4. I really can't say enough good things about The Hunger Games trilogy. They're such an exciting read. I'm pretty positive Katniss will be a favorite of yours from your description. After you read them let us know what you think!
