Mockingjay (The Hunger Games Trilogy #3) by Suzanne Collins

Synopsis: "My name is Katniss Everdeen. Why am I not dead? I should be dead. Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding. It is by design that Katniss has been rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans-except Katniss. The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn to accept responsibility for countless deaths, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay-no matter what the personal cost."

My Rating: 5 stars (Why wouldn't I? It's SUZANNE COLLINS' BOOK)
My Word: DELIRIOUS and HORRIFYING at the same time!!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Why does The Hunger Games have to end?!?! It feels like I read the book too quickly!! I'm going to miss the books so much!!! Okay, okay enough with my feelings...on to the book!
WOW! This book really shocked me... Suzanne Collins has done it again, no kidding. Katniss helping with the rebels, by being the Mockingjay... all that power she had was incredible. I certainly loved the different activities going on through the book. Like, Peeta being captured and later, well I don't want to give it away, but it was so unique it made me delirious! Peeta and Katniss did not have as many romantic experiences though... :'(Of course, there were some upsetting moments, like all the deaths that occured. Of course, I won't name them, but there were a lot! But let me just tell you, don't just read the first Hunger Games, you have to complete your life to read the rest of the series! I'm serious, it's worth the time...Obviously, I was so sad in most parts of the book that I thought I was going to cry, but that is the power Suzanne Collins has that can move people. This series made me literally love science fiction books, and I will never forget them. The ending really got me though. Oh, how I loved the ending, it was so happy despit all the deaths that made Katniss feel sad, but she said she would remember all the good things people did to others. It was like playing a little game, repetitive, almost tedious....but there are worse games...
