MOCKINGJAY by Suzanne Collins

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss's family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.

Well, here I am. At the end of The Hunger Games Trilogy. I'm both excited to have read it, and super sad to be finished. :) + :( = me at the moment. lol. Wow, what an unpredictable and exciting adventure. 

The Capitol is so angry with Katniss that it'll do anything to hurt her. Especially President Snow, who seems to have a very personal stake in hurting those around her enough to drive her close to insanity. But after spending two (wonderful) books with her, I knew Katniss wouldn't give up without a fight. That she wouldn't give up on those around her--no matter how many had to fall in order to do it. That she would come through in the end--even if she continually breaks the rules and makes up her own. And that the rebellion would reach their target because of her. Oh, and I can't forget about Peeta. She never gives up on him. Not really. I think she gave up on herself, before him.

I'll probably say this a thousand times, but this is an amazing trilogy. This book stood on its own, as strong as the others, and with even more hardships and heartbreak... even though I didn't think things could get any worse. Well, I was wrong, because everything reaches the lowest point in this installment. But still, I enjoyed every minute of it. The ending was bittersweet, yet satisfying. Overall, outstanding.

Yeah, I've only got great things to say about The Hunger Games. :)
