It’s time for the monthly “What’s on Your Nightstand” carnival sponsored by 5 Minutes for Books.
At the moment, there is only one book on my nightstand. And to be honest, it’s in my hands more than on my nightstand.
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
I’m not sure why I even have this book already. Amazon.com still had it listed as a pre-order as late as yesterday. Bookstores promise to have it in stock today, the 24th. And the pre-order I placed with Amazon told me not to expect the book until August 26th.
And yet, it arrived in my mailbox on Saturday. Three full days before its official release.
Perhaps someone at Amazon read my Things I’m Waiting For post, and sneakily got my copy in the mail a few days early. Or maybe a number of people have been pleasantly surprised by receiving Mockingjay early. Or perhaps there was just a random mix-up.
Either way, I’m about 200 pages into it and will likely finish it before the end of the day. Since Sunday, I’ve been reading as often as I can, in between things like church, meals, errands, and get-togethers with friends.
Mockingjay is just as absorbing as the previous books in the trilogy (Hunger Games and Catching Fire). I’d tell you more, but I have to get back to reading. Must find out how things end for Katniss, Gale, & Peeta.
