  1. I'm Team Gale, have always been!
    I feel like Peeta is a Bella male version: requires saving all the time! Gale is awesome!
    I hope Suzanne Collins give Gale more opportunities with Katniss in Mockingjay.

  20. I'm having to take a breather>>> PANIC has now set in and I need to think about feeding my kids.

  29. This book is leaving me emotionally drained. I've been laughing, sighing, crying, and slamming the book shut in anger all day! But I still don't want to stop reading :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I loved every word. Every sentence. The end was perfect. I laughed, cried, got angry, everything in one reading. What a perfect end to a great trilogy.

    ReplyDelete
  31. End of ch 22 and I'm crying....

    ReplyDelete

  38. I can't believe it's over. there aren't going to be any more. The ending is as good as I hoped though, it completes everything. I think we all need to bow and kiss the feet of the wonder that is Suzanne Collins.

    ReplyDelete
  39. OMG! PAGE 276 ... Not for the faint of heart!

    "Pull it together, four-five-one." He says firmly.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Any suggestions for what to do now that I'm done reading? I feel strangely empty and restless. I love how the book ended, but I'm still having trouble believing that there is no more. Anyone else feel the same?

    ReplyDelete
  41. @silverphoenix Yes! I feel the same. I just finished, and honestly, I don't know how I feel about the book, or the ending....

    I'm going to have to mull this over awhile. I can't believe it's over! (Must seek solace in Harry Potter!)
