Unlike Katniss Everdeen, the plucky and spirited young heroine of The Hunger Games trilogy (the young adult series that I’m currently obsessed with), I am weak. So weak. I promised myself (and all of you) that I would save Mockingjay, the final instalment of the trilogy until after I finished the Russian. Instead, I downloaded it and read it in a day and a half. I couldn’t help it – I have no willpower. I really needed to know how it all wrapped up even though I could have easily predicted the outcome.
Why don’t I feel the same pull toward the Russian? It’s the greatest novel ever written, for lawd’s sake! Okay, this time I’m going to finish it. No more excuses.
