Playing a bit of catch-up today! A few things of note:
- I (lightyears after the rest of the YA world) finished MOCKINGJAY! Holy moly — a breathtaking ending to a breathtaking series. And I mean that quite literally. I frequently had to unclench my blanched-white fingers from the pages and remind myself that oxygen intake is, in fact, an advisable activity. Definitely more thoughts on that to come. (The series, that is. Not oxygen intake. I don’t have much more to say about oxygen intake other than: yay, breathing!)
- YA Highway is hosting an awesome ARC giveaway. Ooh, what I wouldn’t do to get my hands on WHERE SHE WENT…
- The inimitable Nathan Bransford is holding his quasi-annual first paragraph contest, and offering some seriously spectacular prizes.
- Because I apparently can’t go more than five minutes without mentioning THE HUNGER GAMES in some fashion — film adaptation news! Debra Zane, who cast BREAKING DAWN, has been hired as casting director. I do not envy her job in the slightest — she has a lot of fans to try to please!
Back to regular scheduling tomorrow!
