Sometimes a thought is closer to truth, to reality, than an action. You can say anything, you can do anything, but you can't fake a thought.
Let me start this off by saying, if you plan on reading this book, don't look up a single thing about it. Go in blind and see where it takes you. Trust me, you'll have the best experience.

This book is insane. It's petrifying, grotesque, but all the same, r
I was not expecting to love this so much. I've seen most of the movies, felt like I already knew the story going in, but wow was I wrong. Yes, I was aware of the major plot points going in, but something the movies hadn't conveyed to me was the mind behind each character.
Being written in first person elevated this story so much further than I was expecting. Hearing her inner thoughts brought a new side of Katniss out to me. Katniss Everdeen is one of, if not the best prota

Any and all concerns were gone once my eyes focused on the first page. I debated marking m
~ Thank you to NetGalley and Wednesday Books for inviting me to participate in the blog tour for this release and sending me an early copy in exchange for an honest review ~ I've agreed to post my review for this book on August 21, so check back then to see my thoughts!
