The 24th was the publishing date for my much anticipated MOCKINGJAY!!!! It was a long, hard summer to wait for the third to come-I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!!!
But...the 24th came and went...and I didn't have my book. WHY? Because UPS didn't put it on the truck to deliver it until the NIGHT of the 23rd. Rude. (You pre-order so you can have it in your grubbies ON THE DAY IT'S RELEASED!) The 25th rolled around and it wasn't dropped off until 6. I was gone by then. I didn't get to start reading until 11 that evening, and I was so tired that I fell asleep in the middle of chapter 2. Sad.
Last night I put off everything else and let myself read. I was able to make it to page 134 before passing out... and OH MY HONEST!!!!!!!!! I can't STAND it!! I want to know what happens, who wins, who lives, who dies, who she ends up with...IF she makes it... The anticipation-that's showing up as pure anxiety-is KILLING me and I just can't read fast enough.
Court, I promise that I'll have a good chunk-at least-down by Monday. No more sleep. No more food. No other plans. I promise.
Don't bother me. I'm reading...
