The Hunger Games Mockingjay Trailer [You're The Expert] [Gone Viral]

Some of you know that I was not a fan of the first book in the series, THE HUNGER GAMES.  The second book, CATCHING FIRE was a lot better for me, but I still am not sure about the third.  Of course I'm eager to see who Katniss picks, Peeta or Gale, but I'm not chomping at the bit to read the book like a lot of you are.  That's not to say I judge you for being eager to read it, I totally don't.  I think it's great that the series has such great fans and followers because I think it, like Harry Potter and Twilight, will reach an untouched YA demographic and turn these newer readers onto reading.  I'm just not generally a fan of dystopia.

What I'm curious to know is your thoughts on the new MOCKINGJAY trailer.  I think it may have left me even less excited about the upcoming book.  But I want to know what you have to say about it.  So put on your critic hats and let us know what you think about this:

I adored the books, both of them, and am anxious for the last one to come out.

But trailers for books have never been a great concept for me. I mean...it's just sort of lame, I think. I was hyped long before I ever saw this, and I will ignore this trailer and continue to be hyped of my own free will and choice!

I think that came out sounding a lot snarkier than I meant it to. Oops.

I was kindof hoping for more from that trailer :p But I personally am very excited for Mockingjay's release :)

I'm the opposite of you: I loved the first book, and the second one didn't quite live up to my expectations. I'm hoping that'll change with the third one.
And I'm not liking this book trailer, by the way.

what...more books said...

I still have not read any of the books from this series. I do keep hearing a lot of good things about them, I will have to checkit out. i know that my cousen read them and he just loved them.

I didn't think much of the trailer but I am dying to read Mockingjay. Of course I usually don't watch book trailers but even so this one seemed pretty lame.
