The Compulsive Reader: The Third Hunger Games Book Revealed!

The Third Hunger Games Book Revealed!

Today Scholastic has announced that the third book in the Hunger Games trilogy will be...MOCKINGJAY.

It's a far cry from The Victors, which was a rumored title floating around the Twitterverse a few weeks ago, and the cover is quite a bit different from the prequels' as well--but I'm loving the light blue!

The cover is gorgeous, the title doesn't give a hint as to what the book's story arc will be, and there isn't a synopsis to be found...are you dying with anticipation yet? One thing that is nice to know that EVERYONE will get the book at the same time. Scholastic has decided not to distribute any advanced copies.

Do you have any theories? Share in the comments below, but warn us if you're going to talk about spoilers, please!

Edited to add: Also check out the Publishers Weekly article about announcement and some pre-release buzz going around! I'm quoted in it!

I read a synopsis on Goodreads just a few minutes ago. It's very brief, but it's still something.

I'm glad to hear there are no advanced copies actually because then I won't be tempted by reviews too much I hope. :D Plus I'm always insanely envious of those with advanced copies of big books like this.
