Just in time for Banned Books Week, this showed up in my mail for me to read. Yay!

Journal Entry 4 by wingResQgeekwing at Alexandria, Virginia USA on Tuesday, October 06, 2015
I generally read dystopian fiction because I find the projected futures to be interesting to think about and the implications of these stories to be warnings about the dangers of contemporary trends in our politics and society. But I don’t know that I’ve ever had one leave me quite as emotionally seared as this one did. Built around the idea of a society that allows groups of its children to fight to the death annually, it really was hard to imagine how the series could possibly become any darker. And yet, this third volume is incredible dark, with very little glimmer of hope to cast it away.

Perhaps I only feel that way because this is the first book of the series where I didn’t already know the ending, since the final installment of the movies has yet to be released. But somehow, I kept hoping for a less ambiguous ending to the war, with good clearly triumphing over evil. Instead, this series reveals itself to be something other than a fairy tale, with a neat, clean, happy ending. This ending is probably a better mirror on reality, where the line between good and evil is blurry, and the outcomes of wars are rarely anything but ambiguous.

The emotional impact of this series, and this book in particular, will likely linger for quite some time. And that’s a good thing, because I want to think long and hard about the implications of this story and what Katniss’s struggles might tell us about our future.

I'm setting this aside to pass along to SqueakyChu the next time I see her.

Thank you so much for this book, Six and ResQGeek! I'm going to read it and then release it in the Little Free Library of Twinbrook (#7720).

I am simply overwhelmed with books. There's nothing to do now but a massive book culling. As it is, even if I live to a grand old age and remain completely healthy, there is no way I would be able to read as many books as I have placed on my "To Be Read" pile here at home. This one book book is part of that massive culling.

Sweet travels, little book, and good luck in finding a welcoming reader.

I'm releasing this book for...

***The 2018 Great Backyard Bird Count Release Challenge hosted by Gory Details in honor of the Audubon Great Backyard Bird Count. This book has a bird on its cover and the word JAY in its title.

Enjoy the book!

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I'm releasing this book in conjunction with a BCinDC (my local BookCrossing group) meetup today. This Starbucks has an OBCZ (Official BookCrossing Zone) so it's a great meet-up place...except that I dislike Starbucks coffee intensely and would prefer green beer today instead. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
