Official Mockingjay 13 District Blog Tour - District 2

One of the most anticipated publishing events in young adult fiction is a little over three weeks away. August 24th will see the release of Mockingjay, the third and final volume in the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. To celebrate the books launch Scholastic is launching the Official Mockingjay 13 District Blog Tour and I am excited to announce that SciFiGuy.ca is an early stop (#2 of 13) on the tour as a tribute for District 2 on Wednesday, August 4.

Each stop on the tour will have an exclusive giveaway (I'd tell you now but then I would have to toss you to the mutations) that will be revealed on the day of the tour stop. For more information on the Mockingjay Blog Tour visit the Official Hunger Games Facebook Page. You will find videos, downloads, gift cards, movie news and more. You can read my review of The Hunger Games here. If you haven't read this terrific series yet, what are you waiting for? There is still time to get the first two books read before the launch.

  4. Effie Trinket is my favorite character. When we first meet her we think she's just a tool of President Snow's but by the end of the second book you start to learn that she has her own opinions and is suprisingly resilient.

  6. It's so hard to pick a favorite character, but I think I would have to lean towards Peeta.

  7. My favorite character is Katniss, because she courageous and brave enough to save Peta instead of herself.

  10. I'd have to say that Katniss is my favorite character because of her potential, but she also infuriates me. For her to be so strong when she's in a bind, she seems so whiny and blind to the fact that she could do more. She also seems selfish sometimes, for anyone not in her key circle of people. I love the moments when she "Hulks" up so to speak, when she lets the fire within her bring her to victory. I hope she really comes into her role as leader in the final book. It's like waiting for a sunrise with your sunglasses already on because you know it's just going to be blindingly intense!

  12. My favorite character is definitely Haymitch. At first, I didn't like him. I thought he was only a drunk and a jerk. However, after reading more into The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, I found out he WAS a drunk, but that he was smart and courageous. For example, when he would wait to send a package to Katniss, or when you find out how he survived the games himself. I think those examples and more than enough to prove that Haymitch is the coolest character.
