Catching Fire Released Bumped Up and Win Lunch with Collins!

Unless you've wedged yourself firmly under a rock, you're going to know that Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games is one of the biggest names in YA titles and its sequel, Catching Fire, is highly anticipated, to put it lightly. Really, people are salivating to get their hands on the next book, originally set to be released on September 8th but has now been bumped up to September 1st in the hope of garnering more readers, with a 250,000 copy first printing.

On top of that, Scholastic is holding its own contest for teens ages twelve to seventeen to win lunch with Suzanne Collins and her editors in New York City as a grand prize or an ARC of Catching Fire and a mockingjay pin as a runner up. The contest is running from March 16th to May 15th so if you're interested, check out this article for more information on what you need to do and how to enter.

You know, I haven't even read this book yet and I'm excited for its sequel's release. Hey, if Stephen King liked it, that's good enough for me!

You are rightfully excited about it, and I hope you get to read it real soon!

Oh man, Donna, I just read your comment on my latest post. That was bitingly good. Made me laugh many times. I'll keep your words in mind whenever I have to hear the rightfully nicknamed "asshats" speak in class from now on. You go, girl!

So do I, Steph! And thanks, LOL! Those types of people are rampant on college campuses, especially in writing classes. It's just a matter of how thick can you get the skin before before you inflict bodily harm on one of them. It's a double blast when you not only read it but write it as well and it's just like, "You know what guys? This is what I write. Deal or shut the fuck up." That's pretty much what it boils down to. Dammit. Now I want to write a YA defense post!
