Which dystopian characters would you want on your team?
The coming week is FULL of highlights:
Tommorrow, the Mockingjay tour is coming here with the MOST amazing giveaway yet! Plus during the week I'll have an interview with Lauren Oliver about Delirium, a look at dystopian titles coming up in 2011 and 2012, more book reviews and giveaways, a look at more obscure dystopian titles, and my dystopian reader panel tells us what they'd miss if they were living in a dystopia.
First of all, PLEASE don't go to GoodReads if you want to avoid Mockingjay spoilers. I learned the hard way...and so did Carla.
Suzanne Collins answers 5 questions over at Scholastic.
Mrs. DeRaps has a round-up of some cool Mockingjay posts around the blogosphere
Amanda at the Zen Leaf is preparing for Mockingjay. I am in complete agreement on her reading of the Gale vs Peeta debate.
Sarah Enni talks about the (casting) Katniss problem. I love the idea of Tania Raymonde (Alex from LOST) playing her.
How to create a dystopia over at The Spectacle.
Also at The Spectacle, Beth Revis discusses dystopias.
