Mockingjay is Here!!!

The first six copies of Mockingjay are here and waiting on the holdshelf for the first six holds (including me!!!)

There will be five FOL 7 day collection copies hitting the shelves later this week. The five extra copies I ordered are on back order since the publisher has run out of copies.

If you are far down on the hold list don't despair - it won't take long since this book is the kind you can't put down once you start it!

If you have a hold that you don't need anymore please cancel your hold so others won't have to wait as long.

If you are looking for other dystopic fiction books to read, take a look at some of these titles:
