Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
The book I am eagerly anticipating this week is Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.
Just thinking about this book makes me giddy with excitement. I am as excited for it as I was for the last few Harry Potters. (That’s saying a lot!) If Borders would stay open until midnight on 8/31, I would be first in line to pick up the book and would read all night even though I have to work that day. Since they aren’t planning on doing this, I’ll be heading to the Borders by work at lunch to pick up my copy. If they don’t have it, there will be blood. Well, probably not blood, but definitely tears. Everything I’ve heard about Catching Fire is that it is just as good as The Hunger Games. Squeeee!
