I'm getting SO impatient for... MOCKINGJAY by Suzanne Collins! 

I started the series this year and honestly COULD NOT PUT THE BOOKS DOWN! It's just SO INTERESTING! It seemed like the books were too short.
1) The Love Triangle: Of course, EVERYONE is itching to find out who Katniss is going to choose (if she gets to choose). I mean, girls are fawning over Peeta, him being the sweet little bakery boy he is. And on the other hand, other girls are rooting for Gale, the muscular, caring guy that has what it takes to survive and protect Katniss. Maybe I'm being biased here since I'm totally TEAM GALE!
2) The Districts: *SPOILER ALERT* I mean, what the heck happened to District Twelve?! And what is District Thirteen?! Collins better explain EVERYTHING in Mockingjay.
3) The Rebellion: What happened to that or should I say what will happen about that? Will they fight? What about the government? Too many questions! Too much hanging on Mockingjay!
Oh my goodness! There's too much about Mockingjay that makes me want to read it, I can't even list them all!
