“What are you most looking forward to this fall/autumn season – A particular book release? Halloween? The leaves changing color? Cooler temperatures? A vacation? (If your next season is other than fall/autumn, tell us about it and what you are most looking forward to in your part of the world!)”

This fall I'm looking forward to not only cooler temperatures but new AND numerous photo opportunities (digital photography is a hobby of mine.)  I'm also looking forward to our family get together in a couple of weeks up north...It's right on the lake and it's a completely stress free environment.  I'm also looking forward to being able to sit down and knit up some baby stuff for my niece or nephew that will be arriving in March 2012.

Q. If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what?

I'm going to go with the end of Mockingjay on this one.  I thought that the end of Mockingjay was pretty rushed and I really would have liked to see it a little more drawn out and a little more detail.  I felt like the current ending was a little bit to "wham bam."

It sounds like you are going to have a lovely fall! I wasn't thrilled by the end of Mockingjay either.

Enjoy your fall, happy Friday!

I have a nephew arriving in November! I wish I knew how to knit so I could make something for him! I guess I'll just have to buy him lots of books!! :)

Have a lovely vacation!!

Mockingjay seems to be everyone's go-to answer to this week's question. It makes me happy that I skipped it!

This week’s question is perfect for Labor Day weekend with the “official” end of summer and all.

I’m all about fall! I love all four seasons and I’m sorry to see summer go (I hope to get in a few more swims in my pool) but I’m also amped up for Autumn.


For most of the same reasons we all like autumn – fall foods, Halloween, the chill in the air, changing leaves and candy corn. But I’ve got a scary slant to why I’m angling for autumn. Hop on over to my book blog at to read all about the murder, mayhem, seriously spooky stuff and even some BSP!

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Despite this and many other posts about HG, I'm still going to try and read the trilogy before the books come out because it sounds like there's more good than bad??

Okay, new follower. Have a good weekend!

I agree with you. LOVE the series, but she could have done so much more with the ending.
