Truly lost for words. Let the momentary feeling of hollowness sink in as I fight to make peace with the bittersweet realization that this beautiful journey has finally come to an end. #thehungergames #mockingjay #theend

Mockingjay | Suzzane Collins

Pickpick

Though this is a dystopian novel, it's realistic about what violence and war do to the masses. I am satisfied with the ending, not tied up in a neat bow, but really showing how long trauma can truly last. It's terrifying how history nearly repeats itself so easily, completely blind to the consequences. Mankind, so intelligent, ever evolving, never realizing the true cost of abusing one another. #bekind #teamnosleep for #mockingjay #hungergames

Naj Lovely review! 5mo
LibrarianRyan This was one of the few popular trilogy/series where I actually liked the ending. I liked the ending because it showed that there were real consequences in life. Not everyone lived happily ever after. A killer reader, but I loved every heart breaking minute of it. 5mo
ReadingOverSleeping @LibrarianRyan You were right, it was a great series. It's amazing how they were ready for just one more. I was sad about Prim the most though, the girl who really started it all because her name was called and she had a sister who would literally die for her. Watching Catching Fire now, much better than the first! 5mo

ReadingOverSleeping @Naj thank you! Did you read the series? I highly recommend! 5mo
Scochrane26 @ReadingOverSleeping @LibrarianRyan I also liked the ending of this series, it‘s realistic. I think I like this series so much because it relates to current events. Author got the idea from real life events. Other ya series also have meaning, but I think this one is a little deeper. There are a lot of series that are hunger games lite. 5mo
Scochrane26 Also, I‘ll never get over finnick‘s ending 5mo
starlight97 Wise words! 5mo
LibrarianRyan @Scochrane26 Ahhh. Finnick. There are things I hope she touchs on in her new books that were skipped over or not fully explained like Avox.

As for another Realistic series, if you have not read it (at least book 1), try Unwind. It is so real to what is actually happening now. When I first read it I was like NO WAY, but each day we get a little closer.

Scochrane26 @LibrarianRyan I read unwind a few yrs ago, & it horrified me, but I liked it. There‘s one scene toward the end that I‘ve never forgotten. I always forget about that one when recommending a series, & I forget to go back & finish the series. 5mo
ReadingOverSleeping @Scochrane26 @LibrarianRyan please tell me more about unwind! Although I need something less heart wrenching next! 5mo
ReadingOverSleeping @Scochrane26 that one bothered me as well. Finally with his love, expecting a child and gives himself as the ultimate sacrifice 5mo
LibrarianRyan @ReadingOverSleeping Unwind is by Shusterman. In it all children MUST be born. Between the ages of 14 and 18 any child can be “unwound”. It never comes out and directly says what unwinding is but when they describe it it will give you chills. This story follows three kids sent to unwinding, a tithe and two unexpected. I can‘t say anything else without giving everything away. But it is so good. And the world is just 🤯 5mo
Scochrane26 @ReadingOverSleeping I‘ve heard the rest of the unwind series is good, think there‘s 4 books? I just forget to add them to my long tbr. 5mo
ReadingOverSleeping @LibrarianRyan @Scochrane26 I've just picked up the first in the series from the library! Looking forward to this f"ckery ? 5mo
Naj @ReadingOverSleeping Yes, I've read the series and quite liked it. I was dissapointed by the ending though. Second book was my favorite of the series. But then I usually don't like dystopian fiction so maybe I'm not the right person to judge the series. 5mo

I flew through this #audiobook and can‘t wait to find out what happens in the final book. Since I‘ve only seen the first movie the rest of the series is still pretty fresh for me. I felt like the pace of this book was quick and engaging even if there wasn‘t very much character development. I am #teampeeta all the way tho. Bring on #mockingjay

2019 page goal: 14,734/30,000 = 49.1%

rretzler Great book and great series! The movies were daily faithful to the books, but I much prefer the books! 7mo
Kaila-ann @rretzler it‘s been a while since I saw the first movie but having just finished the book, I felt like the movie did a pretty decent job. Maybe I‘ll watch the rest of them once I‘ve finished the books. 7mo

Started listening to the #audiobook of Catching Fire (#2 in The Hunger Games series) while I go about my household duties today. I‘m 6 chapters in and I‘ve already cried more than a handful of times. Lol I love it. 🔥😭
Certainly makes washing dishes and doing laundry a lot more exciting. 🚰🧽🍽🧺🧹

Part 3 of the #HungerGames trilogy. #Mockingjay, without me giving too much away, is when war begins against the Capitol. I loved this book, although it was sad in places. Can I just say, I hated the movies of this book? Total snooze fest. I did fan-girl hard over Lorde‘s song for the soundtrack, though: Yellow Flicker Beat. A great moment for a Hunger Games fan.

Dragon The books were better! 2y
SharonAlger @Dragon, I have to agree with you 🙂 I loved the books 💗 I think I watched the Hunger Games before I read the first book. 2y

"If I could grow wings, I could fly. Only people can't grow wings," he say's. "Real or not real?"
"Real," I say. "But people don't need wings to survive."
"Mockingjays do."
~Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay

"I volunteer!" I gasp. "I volunteer as tribute!"

I need to give The Hunger Games another read so I can finally get around to reading Catching Fire and Mockingjay ?
