Wishlist Wednesday #4

Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves.
Hosted by Pen To Paper

My name is Katniss Everdeen. Why am I not dead? I should be dead.
Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.
It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plains--except Katniss.
The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay--no matter what the personal cost.

I loved both Hunger Games and Catching Fire. I've been told that Mockingjay is a little bit dissapointing, so I waited, and did not read it. It's on my wishlist though LOL

Wreck This Box by Keri Smith 
I came across Wreck This Journal on tumblr when someone posted a picture of this horribly disfigured book. I was horrified. Since I am one of those people who takes good care of their book you can imagine how I felt seeing this muddy and torn poor little thing. I couldn't believe my eyes. Is this for real or is someone messing with me that this is actually a book?,I thought so I went and Googled Wreck This Journal. (I dare you to do the same) I stayed up late and watched picture after picture of this mess. The next logical step I could think of is-I need to order it! So I will be ordering this boxed set that contains Wreck This Journal, This Is Not a Book and Mess. Wish me luck and strength on actually destroying it when it arrives because I have no idea how will I do it. There will probably be a lot of crying involved.

You haven't read Mockingjay yet?!
You have to read it! At least to see how the series ends. Read it!

Michelle Chew said...

I haven't even read the first book! Anyway, hope you'll get to read it soon. :)

I agree with Sally! You haven't read Mockingjay 0.O I really hope you get to read it soon!

Trayche, Mockingjay is not disappointing at all! For some aspects it's a little predictable but on the other hand Suzanne Collins will surprise you so much, I'm sure of it! I love it, loved it, loved it!

Let me know when you've read it.
P.S I'm @SaraEchelon5 on Twitter, Adeeb's friend ^^

I haven't read any of the The Hunger Games! lol I really don't plan on it either but I might eventually. My husband read them and liked them. He said the same thing about Mocking Jay though.

Here's my WW

I am hyperventilating right now. I cannot believe you and some of these people have not read this! It's more boring than the others, but when you read this (which I really hope you do soon), stick it out!

NONONONONO YOU HAVE TO READ MOCKINGJAY. I didn't find it disappointing at allll!! Just think of it as a war novel, and you'll get along fine with it. As you've seen with the first two books, it's not exactly a happily ever after story, although happy things do happen. But for reals - buy it!! :D

I loved Mockingjay. At first i was a bit "WTF" after finishing it but after a day I realized it's a great ending.

Hope you get it soon :)

Definitely read Mockingjay! You really need to see how it all works out! I really enjoyed the entire series -- yes, the 1st one is best, but I think that's true of a lot of series. Enjoy!
