MOCKINGJAY Day Give-Away!!!!

OMG! It's finally here, everyone---today is Mockingjay Day! With the exception of the Deathly Hallows, we can't remember the last time a book was so eagerly anticiapted. There have been monthly countdowns, tons of casting vlogs, and much nervous squeeing and wild speculation over Suzanne Collins' third and last installment (sob!) of the Hunger Games.



Finally, we'll get all of our questions answered after Catching Fire's huge cliffhanger:


What goes on in District 13?

Can Peeta be saved?

Will anyone die?

And, of course, for the romance junkies like me, who will Katniss end up with: Gale, Peeta, or alone?


We know tons of you, like us, will already be reading today. But for those who haven't run out to pick up your copy of Mockingjay yet, here's your chance. Follow our blog and in the comments section, tell us something key you think might happen in Mockingjay (guessing only--NO SPOILERS, please!). Tonight, we'll draw one lucky winner at random! Simple, right?


Good luck, and happy Mockingjay Day to all!

I think Peeta + Katniss = <3.

I cannot comment on the books as I've yet to read any of them. *ducks* But I do wish everyone the best of luck. Like Deb, I've never seen anything like this, a book that's so sought out that bookstores may get sold out.

Bee said...

I think it's all gonna come down to District 13 and what's brewing there..OMG, please let me win. Mockingjay's yet to arrive in my country. I'm going stark raving insane!

I won't enter either, although I have opinions, but I just wanted to say this is a great giveaway idea. I'm going to go tweet it.

Good luck, everyone!

Okay, I want someone to win who's in a country where the book hasn't come out yet because damn it that's just no right!!! :-) Rootin' for ya Bee!

But I still want to guess that...no I don't. Yes, I do. I think Katniss will end up with...No. I can't say it. I don't want to think it. I don't think there is a right choice. Well, there are only three choices, right? But for some reason my heart aches for all three, so I just can't decide because I don't want to and I'm glad I'm not the one who has to make the choice for her!

Downloaded the electronic version to my Nook @ 12 AM (EST) last night and stayed up waaayyyy too late reading.

After coffee and blog browsing, I'll be back it!

Happy reading all. Team Peeta, FTW

I suck at predictions, so you should probably assume that the exact OPPOSITE of what I think will happen, happens.

I think Katniss chooses Peeta, and then Gale nobly sacrifices himself to save the two of them. I don't see Katniss's mom surviving to the end.

{Of course, this means Mother Everdene lives to a ripe old age and Gale and Katniss live happily ever after...)

kjovus said...

peeta will be alive and leading a revolution (after being tortured) in the capitol.

Gayle will fall in love with Joann.

Haymitch will do something selfless and save Katnis life but die in the process.

the library opens in 57 minutes and can't wait to pick up my book.

I had to cancel my pre-order to put my family's needs first. I'm thinking District 13 is going to change everything. I hope there is a rebellion and the Districts get some equality. All that money spent on the Games should be given to the districts when, as I predict, the Games are canceled. I hope Katniss finally gets to tell Gale how she really feels. :)

Kay said...

Happy reading everyone.

Caitlin R. O'Connell said...

I kind of suspect that Peeta will die... he's just too good for that world.

*fingers crossed to win*

FionaChan said...

I can't guess or anything, as I haven't start reading HG yet. I plan to start reading after I get a copy of Mockingjay. :D I think I read too much spoilers, if I read HG and CF now, I'd have to avoid mockingjay spoilers, and wait impatiently for my copy! D:

My local bookstores are selling, but super duper overpriced and expensive, even more expensive than Deathly Hallows when it first came out! *unhappy

I don't understand why books have to be so expensive in my country :/

Shallee said...

I think that Haymitch will have to sacrifice himself to save Katniss...because as much of a crank as he is, I think he loves her like a daughter.

Laura McMeeking said...

I think it's something more high-tech going on in District 13, something that the other districts would have lost knowledge of when they were separated out. It'll be a game changer, but I don't know what it'll be! I'll just flip a coin and say Katniss chooses Gale and Peeta dies sacrificing himself. But good grief, how can a girl choose?!?!?

Laurie Lamb said...

Peeta will be "confirmed" dead but return during a key crisis. I'm very worried that just when Katniss realizes that Peeta is the one, he will sacrifice himself to save her and die for real.

jecca said...

im about 99.9% sure that katniss will stay with Peeta...poor gale.

Cory said...

I can't wait to read it. I'm scare to wait because I know any minute now I'm going to come across a spoiler.

TerryLynnJohnson said...

I'm hoping Katniss picks Gale, but think she'll go with Peeta in the end. Can't wait to read it!!

J. L. Jackson said...

Total uprising from District 13. Katniss chooses Peeta? Who knows!

throuthehaze said...

I am bad at predictions, but I do think that Haymitch will die.

I have no idea what might happen, since I have but have never read any of the Hunger Games books. (I know, I know!) They're at the top of my TBR pile.

J.S. Wood said...

I'm with those who think Peeta will sacrifice himself for Katniss and she'll get together with Gale. I'm not so patiently waiting for my copy to arrive.

Rachele Alpine said...

Great contest (especially since I haven't got my copy yet!). I'm totally Team Peeta, so I hope something happens with Katniss and him. I also love Cinna, so I hope Cinna is in the next book lots. I think we're all going to be surprised by District 13. I don't know why, but I think it's going to be super developed or a Utopia or something. Ohhhhh....maybe we find out Katnis' dad is living there. I don't think that can happen, but that would be cool!

anthy said...

I think it's very likely that they'll visit District 13, and that there will be a successful revolution. :-)

Also, I think that someone important will die. Not sure who, though.

Thank you very much for the giveaway!

I would LOVE IT if Katniss ends up with Peeta. But alas, my book won't get here until next week. I may have to run to my bookstore tomorrow and just sit there and read one of those copies.

Loretta said...

Peeta and Katniss getting together. awww <3

Bahnree said...

I think Peeta and Katniss will get together and Gale will die, or vice versa. :P

Theresa Milstein said...

I can see Haymitch doing something heroic and dying. Don't enter me because I have a copy on the way and may go to a book signing, and buy a second copy there.

WulfLuva said...

I really believe Katniss will end up with Peeta and that Gale will die (i know that sounds bad but it's what i think).

latishajean said...

I have not read them yet but heard great things about them. I always hear about peeta so now I so have to read and see how good they are!
