Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Goodreads Summary: Young Katniss Everdeen has survived the dreaded Hunger Games not once, but twice, but even now she can find no relief. In fact, the dangers seem to be escalating: President Snow has declared an all-out war on Katniss, her family, her friends, and all the oppressed people of District 12. The thrill-packed final installment of Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy will keep young hearts pounding.


My Take: Another amazing book created by Suzanne Collins. My predictions for this book were completely wrong. I devoured this book in 2 days and I can't stop thinking about it. The emotions I got from this book are heartbreak, anxiety, shock and anger. There were a lot of parts in this book where I would get choked up or where tears would be rolling down my face. Even now, when I reflect on moments in the book, I get emotional and tear up.

Katniss is mentally broken from the destruction that she has caused by her actions. She is caught up in a roll that she didn't choose. One of her biggest challenges is she has to decide if she wants to keep up that roll to have a Revolution in Panem and to bring down the Capitol. She has a hard time deciding who she should trust. One thing I love about Katniss is when she is caught up in the moment, her actions are always smart and amazing.
