My copy of Mockingjay didn’t get here fast enough. NOW I remember why I don’t preorder books! DOH!
Thanks to my merciful little sister, who granted me permission to use her Audible.com account, I listened to it on audio. What a ride! For those of you who read it, did you like it?
And for those of you who haven’t…
Did you know that Katniss was really pregnant after all? Baby KatPee was born fully formed, nearly killing her mother on entry into the world. Good thing Finnick O’Dair was standing right there to imprint on her. Their fates are now sealed forever.
Also, would you have guessed President Snow was really a wizard/vampire/zombie/muttation?! Hmm… no wonder he smelled of blood, oranges, rotten fish, and flowers. Kind of fruity-fishy to me. Oh well, it made it easier for little Prim to kill him dead with just one throw of that cat, who clawed his undead soul to smithereens. Fortunately Rue came back to life just in time to step in as president of all Panem.
Really, I’m relieved Katniss having to choose between Peeta and Gale became such a nonissue, since it turned out Johanna was a boy all along and the one Katniss really needed in her life. Whew! Here I was so worried I couldn’t go on with my own life if she chose Gale.
So what have you all been up to this week? With my ear stuck in a book, I’ve cleaned cupboards, folded laundry, and tiled more mosaics. Guess what I didn’t do? Writing… critiquing… blogging… Oi! (Huge apologies to all of you, both for my slacking off and for the spoilers I include here.)
P. S. My husband, who hasn’t had a chance to read it, does not think my spoilers are funny. Odd, he usually has a good barometer for humor.
