Today Is The Day!

Today is Mockingjay day....for you guys in the States. I have one day to go. ONE FREAKING DAY!!!!!



Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.

I know the excitement on the blogosphere has reached fever pitch. The tweets from the midnight release parties (not that I'm jealous...grrrr) and excited blog posts attest to that. I'm anxiously awaiting my pre-ordered copy from the US, but I may relent and head off to the bookshop tomorrow to pick up the UK copy too. Who am I kidding? I'll be outside the doors before they open.

Now, because you are all awesome, I know you guys would never do this...ever! It has already been blogged, tweeted, and said by the awesome Suzanne Collins herself...but here it is one more time.

Please don't ruin Mockingjay by posting spoilers!

I say this with love, and fear, since Amparo, one of my fab CP's, happened across a tweet spoiler by accident yesterday. Grrr.

That is all. :)

Hey Lindsay!! I know a lot of Mockingjay fans are so worried about spoilers that until they're done reading they're staying off the internet!

I'm excited for the book too :)

Spoilers are the worst!

Last night, I read to avoid GoodReads because there are spoilers on there. Why do people insist on doing that? When Harry Potter 7 came out, I was on media blackout until I finished the book. I read it in a day because I was so paranoid it would get ruined for me.

My copy of Mockingjay still hasn't arrived. I'm very excited!

I hear you--I won't have time to read Mockingjay until next week, so I don't want to hear anything about it! :)

Haven't read any of this series yet, so no spoilers from me, LOL.

Wouldn't it be nice if we all enjoyed the same crazy buzz for one of our releases?
