...I will not be reading Mockingjay with the rest of the world.

Go ahead. Stone me if you must.

But, truth be told, I haven't read Hunger Games or Catching Fire yet, either. Bring on the torch and pitchforks, I know. It's not that I'm not interested in reading them, it's that I've been focusing so much on MG fiction that the YA stuff has pretty much fallen to the wayside.

So, unless you show up on my door with a YA book in your hands, chances are I won't be reading it anytime soon.

But at least I know that Mockingjay is coming out today. I'm not completely out of it, you know.

Just mostly out of it.


  1. Phew! I was beginning to feel like the last girl standing. It seems everyone has read these books.

  2. Me, too! I've also been concentrating on MG and missed the series. I think I better get them, though, they've been getting kudos.

  3. Nope, it's not just you, Cate! I think I may have inadvertently started an underground "We Haven't Read Mockingjay (WHRM, pronounced 'worm')" movement here (my livejournal blog also has WHRM members).

    And I keep thinking the same thing, Catherine. I'd better get them...if I can remember to do that. I don't spend a lot of time thinking about the YA titles I need to read.

  4. i read it on the 25th. :P

    i won't tease you....too much. ;) you gotta read the series. i promise, it is so worth it!

  5. Elissa, left something for you on my blog:)
