This week's official Hop question is:
RIGHT THIS INSTANT, WHAT BOOK ARE YOU DYING TO GET YOUR HANDS ON (PAST, PRESENT, OR FUTURE)?
At the risk of betraying the genre of my blog-- Mockingjay. I think just about everyone who reads YA fiction wants to know what happens to Katniss Everdeen. But just to let you all know, before you even think of asking me, I do not care who Katniss ends up with. In my opinion, the whole "love triangle" thing is the weakest part of the books. I want to know about District 13, the Resistance, the real aftermath of Quarter Quell, and more than anything I want to know what Katniss is going to do, not who she falls in love with. It's frankly annoying to me that a series like this, with such great worldbuilding and a complex female lead who has so much else to concern herself with, has become a battleground for yet more ship wars. Please, people, she's the Mockingjay, she's going to lead an oppressed people out from under a totalitarian regime-- there is so much more at stake to discuss than her boyfriends.
