Mockingjay #48HBC

GRRRRRR!!!!!!!  I spent most of the time reading this being pissed off at what was happening to Peeta.  I kept thinking of how mad I was when almost all the way through Knife of Letting Go the author killed of Manchee,  I felt like that.  I can’t even freaking believe I finished this because it was relentless until the last 5 pages.  And that is all I have to say about that.

Time: 4.5 hours

Pages : 400.

 

I am still MAD!  I feel bad though because I gave the blogging short shrift.  But I am so MAD!

Catching Fire #48HBC

Oh dear Katniss, you are a bit hard to like some times, so naive and dense.  I can see why everyone is so stunned I hadn’t finished the series.  It is breathtaking (breathless) the action in the story, not to mention as annoying as Katniss can be you really feel for her.  (Although, and I hate these designations I find myself on Team Peeta).   The descriptions are fabulous, particularly of President Snow’s smell, the blood on his breath – pretty chilling.  I am going to download and read Mockingjay – must finish it up now.  No, I haven’t read a single spoiler – that is HOW OUT OF IT I have been.

Pages – 391

Hours- 3.5 (had a break when ten minutes after I started my mom called, an hour or so later I got off the phone).
