Yesterday I attended a Hunger Games Book Club hosted by Mrs. Botelho at the Lawrence School. Her blog has a link to some fun Hunger Games information and trivia games: Open Book. On a related note, see my book review of Mockingjay below.

Collins, S. (2010). Mockingjay. NY: Scholastic Press. 390 pages.
Mockingjay is the final book in the Hunger Games trilogy. I don’t want to give anything away to those who haven’t read the first and second books, but I will say that this book is a lot different from the first two. The first two books are both set in the arena and a season of the Hunger Games is played out. In this book, the time for games is over. Katniss is in District 13 and they are waging war against the Capitol. I would say more, but it would ruin the first two books. This is definitely worth reading if you are a fan of the first two books, but it was my least favorite in the trilogy. Also, I would recommend re-reading the first two if it’s been a while… I didn’t, and I regretted it quite a bit because I couldn’t remember a lot of details from the first two and there are not many “flashbacks” to remind the reader of what went on.
