Yay! I am happy you like this series so much. I hope you like Mockingjay, too. For me, Mockingjay put everything in perspective, and I liked the way it wrapped up the story. I felt very satisfied. You will have to let me know what you end up thinking!

YAY! Is the first book your favorite in the series. I liked HUNGER GAMES best, followed by MOCKINGJAY, followed by CATCHING FIRE. I think the three as a whole are great.
