News: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

I know you read the first two and you can't wait for the third . . . but are you ready for this?

The Official Mockingjay 13-District Blog Tour

Well, hold on to your hat, because August is going to be a big month for Suzanne Collins fans.

I am absolutely thrilled to give you hint of things to come. First, Beth Fish Reads is participating in the tour. Be sure to mark your calendar for Monday, August 30, when the tour stops here to honor District 13!

On that day, I'll publish a post about District 13 and will be holding an exclusive (secret for now!) giveaway.

Throughout August, you'll be able to visit all 13 districts, share your excitement for Mockingjay, enter giveaways, and read a variety of posts about the trilogy.

You also don't want to miss the Official Hunger Games Facebook Page, where the tour stop calendar will be listed along with news, polls, trivia games, videos, and more. You can also visit the Facebook page by clicking on the District 13 badge in my sidebar.

I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to participating in this tour. Let the games begin!

Well, you didn't think I'd end the post without a shout-out to Gale did you?

In case you haven't yet read the books or need a quick refresher on the first two, check out my reviews: The Hunger Games and Catching Fire.

I love that you are team gale.

Jen Forbus 7/29/10, 7:44 AM  

I actually haven't read the first two, but you've got me intrigued enough to come back and see what's up your sleeve!

I have heard very good things about the series, just haven't had time to fit it in. *sigh* seems like the story of my life. :-)

Holly 7/29/10, 7:49 AM  

Team Gale! GROSS. Team Peeta! :D

Marg 7/29/10, 7:50 AM  

Well now I know where the tour begins and ends, and I can't wait to find out where else it stops.

I was involved in the prerelease events for Catching Fire and it was a lot of fun.

bermudaonion 7/29/10, 7:50 AM  

I guess I need to read Hunger Games and Catching Fire before all the excitement starts.

Dawn @ sheIsTooFondOfBooks 7/29/10, 7:52 AM  

I'm on the outside looking in with the Hunger Games; haven't yet read the first two!

My two older children, however, are counting down the days until the August release of Mockingjay ... I'll send them back here to see what you have up your sleeve.

Molly 7/29/10, 8:36 AM  

What a clever idea - and I look forward to following the blog tour!

My daughter was looking for something to read last week and I loaned her my copy of Hunger Games. She finished both books in the series in a day and a half and was upset that Mockingjay wasn't released yet. Perhaps I can get her to try blogs with this event :)

Sandy Nawrot 7/29/10, 8:39 AM  

ACK! I can't stand it! I am number 42 in the line for the audiobook at the library, and I'm here to tell you that I'm not going to be able to wait that long. I have been saving my birthday money to freaking buy the audiobook (which makes me crazy)but if you see one flying around PLEASE remember your friend Sandy.

Jenn's Bookshelves 7/29/10, 8:47 AM  

Even though we're representing different Districts, I won't let that affect our friendship :)

Literate Housewife 7/29/10, 9:11 AM  

You scored with that district, my friend! I'm looking forward to the surprises ahead in August!

Serena 7/29/10, 9:12 AM  

sounds great...I can't wait to see what all the districts are like.

S. Krishna 7/29/10, 9:40 AM  

This will be a fun blog tour, I look forward to following it!

Helen's Book Blog 7/29/10, 9:56 AM  

Awesome! I am so excited for you that you are District 13. Can't wait for the blog tour

Woo-hoo for Glae! That Baker Boy is going down!

trish 7/29/10, 11:22 AM  

Woo! I love to see fellow #TeamGale folks on this tour.

Florinda 7/29/10, 12:07 PM  

Oh, what fun! I've pre-ordered two copies of Mockingjay - one for my 15-year-old, one for me. I'm not sure who'll read it first; it may be a race!


GreenBeanTeenQueen 7/29/10, 12:37 PM  

Can't wait to find out your giveaway! Go Team Peeta!;)

Pam 7/29/10, 1:24 PM

District One (a Peeta loving land) will crush you in the games!

Lisa B. 7/29/10, 9:01 PM

How wonderful! I'm just starting in on Catching Fire, so I'm eager to find out what all this "Team Peeta/Gale" stuff is about, and where the series will lead us. Enjoy your month of bloggy fun!

Jenners 8/3/10, 8:20 PM  

Oh ... I almost forget that is coming out soon!! I need to find out what is up with District 13. I think I preordered this ages ago and then forgot about it. I'll be curious to see what you have up your sleeve!
