Oh geez... I REALLY liked the first book. The second book was.. I'll give it 4stars. so good. But Mockingjay? No..
I bought this book after Catching Fire. My friend let me borrow her Hunger Games book because she said it was GOOD. And I agree! I give it 5 stars. So I just ordered Mockingjay online from Barnes and Noble, my hopes all up for this EPIC conclusion. But as I read it, I kept on saying to myself, "I'm going to get captured into this soon," but until the middle of the book, I was bored. So, I stopped reading and it was on my bookshelf in my room for several months. Then during the summer, my teacher in summer school said that we were reading Hunger Games! So THAT is when I brought it out and began reading again. But just like several months ago, I was bored. But still, I read it and I got to admit, I liked the ending. Just not the majority of the book. If you've read the two books, "The Hunger Games" and "Catching Fire" I think you should read this one just to understand what happens to Peeta, Katniss, and Gale, but borrow it at the library or something. I was very disappointed... The Hunger GamesCatching Fire...more

But this book, man, every time i read it, my heart races! For anyone who needs a good read, YOU HAVE TO PICK THIS ONE. I CANT WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE TO COME OUT!! DreamlessJosephine Angelini...more
Wow....... Got to say, before, I thought this was gonna be... "Ehh..." Because of the mention of "Love Triangles" But, when I got a hold of that ARC,Wow....... Got to say, before, I thought this was gonna be... "Ehh..." Because of the mention of "Love Triangles" But, when I got a hold of that ARC, Wow... IT WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Josie cleared up a lot of messes we were talking about. such as, the cousins part, and added a very cute new character ;D LOVED IT!!! I stayed up all night reading it! Definite must read!!!
My review before I read this: "A... Love.. Triangle... WTF... I now completely DETEST love triangles.. I mean, it is good the first few times you read them, but when the YA authors keeps on writing them OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN... IT JUST GETS SOO ANNOYING... After Twilight came out, all of the authors just keeps on writing this similar plot line, OVER AND OVER...
Also, I agree with Paige, the whole, we-are-cousins-so-we-cant-be-together thing just DRIVES ME NUTS... People CAN marry their cousins... and if Helen and Lucas truly loves each other, then that really won't matter to them...
All in all, I AM going to buy this book.. and I really want the ARC of it, and i cant wait until it comes out!
BUT PLEASEE.. IM BEGGING YOU JOSIE, PLEASE NO MORE LOVE TRIANGLES... Many fans (including myself) are getting really tired of it..."...more
I am NOT kidding, I read this book for 5 hours straight - from start to finish. (im a fast reader)I sat thereWOW.... I. SERIOUSLY. LOVED. THIS. BOOK.
I am NOT kidding, I read this book for 5 hours straight - from start to finish. (im a fast reader)I sat there all morning reading and reading, and if my brother bothered me, I'll start yelling at him to get out. xD I was SO into this book...
I LOVE dystopian worlds. I fell in LOVE with the Hunger Games, and I am planning to read, The Maze Runner. This novel by Marie Lu,..... I just don't have the right words for it.. It had none-stop action, romance, and it just kept you engaged in it all the way through! Im seriously NOT joking. I started reading this book, this morning (April 6, 2012) (around 9:30) and finished it like 5 minutes ago... (2:20) (STILL April 6, 2012)
If you are planning to read this book, READ. IT.
The details that Lu described in this novel,... It's Indescribable. I could picture EVERYTHING in my head and I fell in love with June's calculations and moves, and Day's mysterious nature. Also, his love for his family - the fact that he'll do anything for them.
AH~ THAT is a story I'll never forget, a most wanted criminal, and brilliant detective, somehow meeting each other, and who knows what will happen. You won't know until you read it! The Hunger GamesThe Maze Runner...more
