First Line:
I clasp the flask between my hands even though the warmth from the tea has long since leached into the frozen air.

My Review:

I have enjoyed this series thus far but I do NOT love this series like the million plus other people out there. Please don't stone me or send hate mail.

I'm not sure if I'm having a hard time getting past the kids killing kids concept. My mommy strings are being pulled big time by these story lines.

With that said I do think the characters, storyline, and details are solid and well written.

I look forward to seeing this series through... reading MockingJay now!

My Rating: Photobucket

Until next time...Happy Reading!

So far I have enjoyed the books and the movie. Still, the complete lack of compassion and guilt at killing other human beings leaves me not loving it. That won't stop me from reading the rest though.
