Cover Story: Mockingjay!!



This is the brilliant cover of the final installment of the epic Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins.

It will be released AUGUST 24th, 2010!

Ah! I can't wait!

This lovely cover foreshadows interesting times to come. The lighter blue hues are very different from the blacks and dark reds of its predecessors, and the concentric circle pattern that appears on all three books is here broken, shattered by the Mockingjay, a symbol of rebellion and anti-government views in Panem. What does this say about the book?

Hmmm....

I have some theories myself, but I'm going to wait until I actually have my hands on a copy to disclose them. :)

What do you think about this upcoming adventure? Are you excited? Wary? What do you think the cover can tell us about the story?

Here's the synopsis:

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.

MEANWHILE...

Have you heard that Lionsgate is producing a Hunger Games movie that will be released in 2011?

What do you think of this? Potential cast, anyone? Are you as shocked as I am that anyone would attempt to put these awesome books on the screen?

    As to the movie:
    I've just lost hope in books being turned into movies. Harry Potter movies? lame. Percy Jackson movie? Lame. Etc.
