MOCKINGJAY PARTY POST: LIVE BLOG EDITION

24 Aug


Let the party commence! Just like you, we literally just picked up our copies (12:01!) and are on our way to spend the night reading. We will be very sleepy Book Talkers tomorrow, that is for sure.

First things first: If you haven’t read or don’t intend to read Mockingjay yet, DO NOT GO ANY FURTHER. There will be spoilers in the comments section of this post. Tread very carefully! For everyone who is here to talk about the book, don’t forget that on the right hand side of this post you’ll see Book Talk’s own WORDS WE LIVE BY—so please, keep it friendly and fun. The lovely Suzanne Collins herself has requested that we all be mindful of fellow readers and fans.

NOW, it’s time for the biggest giveaway yet! In honor of finally getting our hands on Mockingjay, we want to give away THIRTEEN Mockingjay Pins! (Get it?) As with the first round, be sure to comment on this post with the phrase “I want a Book Clubs Mockingjay Pin!” in the body of your comment to enter. You must be over the age of 18 and a valid U.S. resident; click here for complete rules. You will have until 11:59 p.m. on August 24, 2010, to enter. We will draw thirteen (13) names at random and announce the winners on Wednesday, August 25. Please only submit the phrase one time, and leave the rest of your comments for good old-fashioned book talk.

Anyway, now it’s time for you to tell us what you think! We’ll be around to add in our own thoughts while we read as well.

Scroll on down and have at it!

    i just finished the book and i’m in such a rage

    • Preeti August 24, 2010 at 9:34 pm #

      I just finished too! I don’t even know what to think!

    Ok, back now that I have finished the book. I really loved the book. All of the character deaths really packed an emotional impact. Once they got to the Capitol the last chapters went by in a blur and I couldn’t believe how much happened. I really enjoyed Buttercup’s return at the end.

    • Sue Penkivech August 24, 2010 at 11:04 pm #

      I want a pin, but I can’t have one so don’t count this. (I just needed to say it!)

      Why in a rage? It was an awesome ending. Not thrilled with some of the deaths – one at least was unnecessary to my mind – but I liked how things played out. And I agree, Buttercup returning was just perfect.

    • Preeti August 25, 2010 at 11:49 am #

      I agree! I think Finnick’s hit me the hardest, to be honest. I wish she’d spent more time on him 😦 He was one of my favorites in this book.

    What a roller-coaster ride. Well done Suzanne Collins! I could not put it down… and now I’m going to start it over, so much to absorb.
