Next to be reviewed:

I'm back! (...again)

Let's just say it: I suck.

I have no time management skills whatsoever, and cannot seem to juggle school, cheering, a social life, homework AND blogging. But I'm going to try to be better about it.

With everything starting back up I know I haven't been on the ball lately. (I haven't read a book that wasn't school assigned in over a week!) I'm going to try to post a review this weekend and hopefully at least one a week for the next few months. This IS a review blog and because I'm not on as often I'm going to start cutting back on things like WoW, Book Blogger Hop, and The Saturday Network. I love participating in them, but if I can only post once a week I'd rather post a review than a contest or meme.

Woo. Now that that's over with, how are you guys?! What are your classes like (if you're still in school)? What about teachers? How are you balancing everything? I miss all of your posts!

Oh, and hello to all my new followers! I hope you enjoy my blog!

Random picture time:

"I Like the Ones"-Austin Gibbs,



And just in case you missed the subject I'll leave this here in nice big red letters: THERE BE SPOILERS HERE MY LOVELIES. 

Now I'll try to express most of my feelings in words, but sometimes words are not enough. This is when I bring in the gifs. For times like this when I finish Mockingjay and can't think of anything to say and just stare at the book.

This is me immediately after finishing:


Then I moved onto this:


And now I'm finally here:


Here's why:

First of all it's no secret that I'm so Team Gale, I can't even think of Team Peeta, so obviously I was a little miffed that she chose dough boy. But that's not what broke my little Gale-lovin' heart. It was the fact that once she chooses Peeta it's like Gale (and everyone else) drops off the face of the Earth. All we get is: 'Gale has a fancy new job.' and 'Katniss's mother has abandoned her, but that's a minor detail.' Katniss goes from 'You crazy, Peeta.' to 'Oh, Peeta, I wish I could write our names in the stars with rainbows made with unicorn hugs.' in about ten pages. That whole ending just rubbed me the wrong way.

And don't even get me started on Finnick. Poor Annie is barely even mentioned after his death even though she's lost the only person who can keep her stable, not to mention the fact that she just got him back. Oh deary, how I love Finnick.

Although I just about lost it when Finnick died, I completely flipped when Prim was killed. My first thoughts: The sole reason Katniss was pulled into any of this Mockingjay business just died. Then when I finished the book I was outraged that she didn't have more than a scene in which she grieved.

I don't even know what else to say about that.

 Some things I loved:
  • That Cinna was remembered for his passion and that he still played a part in the story.
  • Not gonna lie, I adored hijacked, tell-it-like-it-is Peeta. He wasn't such a pushover and was more honest than many of the other characters.
  • Gale was still my favorite. I don't care if sometimes he got a little bloodthirsty. He was there for Katniss when no one else was.
  • Prim. She was such a special little girl.
  • Snow was finally killed.
So, those are my thoughts. My rant is over. Feel free to hate or appreciate. Doesn't matter to me, but I'd love to discuss it with you all! 

Happy September everyone!

"Chelsea"-The Summer Set,


Post-Mockingjay Depression (NO SPOILERS)

Post-Mockingjay Depression:

I have it.

Some of you probably have it too.

I literally finished reading the last installment in the epic world of The Hunger Games not two minutes ago, so be warned that this post is what I'm thinking right now, and my views will probably change immensely when it comes time to write my final review.

The first thing that comes to mind: disappointment. I'm not trying to scare anyone off. Suzanne Collins is brilliant and the book was overall just as good as the other two installments, but...I really would've liked to see more. It felt rushed to me and a little forced at times. I know I can't speak for all readers, but my expectations were at such a high level that almost no ending would ever reach them. This fact leaves me with mixed feelings towards this whole thing.

I don't know if I'm just upset that the series is ending. Or that because I didn't like the ending. Or if I'm just a little crazy after the emotional roller coaster Mockingjay takes you on.

I don't know what it is, but I'm fried after reading that. So now I'm going to go watch some pointless YouTube videos and try to salvage some of my sanity.

Any thoughts from people who've read Mockingjay? Tell me in a comment or if you want to talk spoilers send me an e-mail I'm dying to talk with someone about it!
