Mockingjay

The finale in Suzanne Collin’s The Hunger Games proves to be excellent, just like the previous installments. Although it broke my heart, I still loved it. The pacing was perfect (I read it in just 2 days) and the ending was so satisfying. I greatly enjoyed reading this trilogy and if you haven’t already read it, put it on your tbr list right now!

Yes. This is the only book I have read this month.

  • I went to Arizona for a wedding and reunited with family, and hung out at the pool a lot (it was 106 degrees one day!)
  • I went to New York City and saw landmarks like the Empire State Building and Ellis Island. We also went to a broadway show (School of Rock). I was truly the trip of a lifetime!
  • I didn’t read. At all.

I have officially been doing NaNoWriMo for two months.

I am 46 pages behind.

I am not disappointed.

  • I am writing this by hand, and not typing it on a computer
  • This is my very first draft
  • I haven’t planned very much of it
  • I have been very busy recently, and haven’t had the time to write every day, even if it is just 2 pages
  • I have 2 whole months of make-up time (September and October) before November starts
  • This is the most I have ever written
  • I am only 12 years old
  • I am trying my best
  • I am producing high quality writing
  • Writing is a passion that I love, not a chore that I should dread

Even though I didn’t complete my goal, I am not disappointed because I am working as hard as I can.

But still I can’t wait until I’m done and the *real* NaNoWriMo comes along…

  1. I hope you have an amazing August! I love the Hunger Games, and Mockingjay broke my heart too, even though I was happy with the end. (she finally loved him…but then he didn’t love her…and then I was over here crying…) I remember legit sobbing during it!
    Thank you for mentioning my post!💓Wishing you the best month ever.

    1. *A MEASAGE TOANYONE SCROLLING THROUGH THE COMMENTS: IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE HUNGER GAMES SERIES, DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER DUE TO MAJOR SPOILERS*

      I knowwwww it was soooo sad! 😢 I literally felt my stomach plummet when I read that Prim had died. It was even worse seeing it on screen (I watched the movie too). And no problem on giving you a shoutout – – I love your blog ❤️ and think I deserves all the recognition it can get 😉
      What series do you recommend I read next?

      2. No. I actually heard about this series on Annie’s blog too — she said that a Netflix series coming out soon. I’m on my way to the library right now *yay* and I will be sure to pick it up. Thanks for the recommendation!
