#96: Mockingjay - Suzanne Collins

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.

My Review of The Hunger Games
My Review of Catching Fire

My Review of movie, The Hunger Games


MY OPINION:
Unless you live under a rock, you will have heard of this series and know this is a final book. While it did come together in the end, and beautifully at that, I still felt a little hung up. I need more. I don't care if it's a final book, I need to know more.... did her last questions go her way?? I have to know!!!
As you can see, I hate that. Authors tell you no, and leave you screaming yes. It's brutal!
But that also shows how awesome the book is. Lures you in till you can't get enough and then BAM! You're hooked. So when it finishes, it's all you can think about.
Man, I'll be talking about this trilogy for a while. That's for sure! Maybe I'll start emailing the author begging for a fourth book? No, too much? Well, I'll have to suffice with recommending it to everyone on the planet I come in contact with.
Oh, and by the way... Cinna is still my favorite. Hands down. Love me some Lenny Kravitz, and through the whole second and third book, every time Cinna was mentioned, left me daydreaming.... woooweeee!!!! 
K, I may have spoiled some minor casting detail, but no biggie.... you'll get over it when you get 'er done. So get on it!

5/5

Recommend? Yes, but book 1 first.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
