I know that everyone and their dog has read this book so you probably could care less about this review, but it’s like this. I’m doing it anyway. This is my challenge to myself to review all the books I read in 2011 so that I can look back on them in the future.
Feel free to press the little x at the top of your screen. Really I won’t be offended..I’m tougher than I look. (mostly)
After winning the brutal Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen returns to her district, hoping for a peaceful future. But Katniss starts to hear rumours of a deadly rebellion against the Capitol. A rebellion that she and Peeta have helped to create. As Katniss and Peeta are forced to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. Unless Katniss and Peeta can convince the world that they are still lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying... The terrifying sequel to The Hunger Games.
First 5 sentences…I clasp the flask between my hands even though the warmth from the tea has long since leached into the frozen air. My muscles are clenched tight against the cold. If a pack of wild dogs were to appear at this moment, the odds of scaling the tree before they attacked me are not in my favour. I should get up, move around, and work the stiffness from my limbs. But instead I sit, as motionless as the rock beneath me, while the dawn begins to lighten the woods.
Where I got my hands on it.. Ok so I confess. I bought this and the third in the trilogy from Amazon. New. eeeeeeek
The cover.. I have to admit to not loving the covers of these books. A bit…computerised…? I bet when the films come out and they change the covers (probably have a cute couple on the front) they will be better!
Made me want to… Read the third book straight away. So I did.
Who’s the lucky duck that’s getting it next?.. My niece will be getting it as she has just started The Hunger Games..(yeah I know…and I thought I was late..lol)
I couldn’t wait to read this! Hence the buying it new from Amazon extravagance.
Katniss, Peeta, Gale and Haymitch are back! and who knew they would have to go through it all again. Bad President Snow. You will root for Katniss from start to finish, and the people of the districts…who have now started to stir..(hellllooooooo what were you waiting for? a teenager to show you how?)
It’s as fast paced as the first, and I read it just as quickly as The Hunger Games. Now that I know there’s going to be films, I’m imagining all the way through how it will be…and Katniss in my head now is nothing like the Katniss of The Hunger Games.
The ending of this book threw me, but luckily for me….Mockingjay was awaiting
I hear that USA is having a heat wave! It’s so cloudy here at the moment,b ut that doesn't mean they aren't all buying ice cream now the schools are out. So I should go and get ready to sell some.
Ps. Have you checked out my other blog yet?
Pps. Just a funny. I went to Tesco yesterday, and picked up a watermelon and dropped it. Splat. Right there, at my feet. I was sooo embarrassed. I put it on the side, and crept away....(but not before selecting another one) I did notice however other watermelons that were cracked....so I'm not the only one, am i!?
