Release Day Giveaway (2)

If you took part in my first Release Day Giveaway, you played an integral part in the second. Based on your comments about the books that you are most looking forward to reading, I've selected a couple to feature as giveaways. Now, I only chose ones that I am also looking forward to. I know that this will work out for you because my number is definitely your number one.

For this second Release Day Giveaway, I'm offering up a copy of Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins.  Now, this might be hard for you to resist pre-ordering (and maybe most of you have already), and I know I've already ordered three copies for myself. One for my best friend, one for my students, and one for me to read in peace. So, if you end up with an extra copy it won't be a bad thing.

I'd love to order for one of you! This contest is open internationally because I'll be using the Book Depository. Please make sure that this site ships to your country for free before entering.

To enter this giveaway, you need to answer the following mandatory question:

What is one prediction that you have for Mockingjay?

Please leave your answer in the form of a comment on this post. Also, you need to leave an email address or I will not be able to contact you if you are the winner. That's all. I can't wait to read all of your predictions!


  1. Katniss and Finnick go on a rogue mission to save Peeta and Annie.

    Peeta leads a capitol one revolution and becomes a political leader of sorts.

    Peeta and Katniss live happily ever after.

    Joanna and Gayle meet and fall in love.


  2. Omgsh, you're really awesome for doing this and I love your question.
    My prediction would be Gayle proving to be a much more essential character than people think he currently is. And I fight between Peeta and Gayle over Katniss.

    Thanks for the giveaway!! :D

  3. Katniss saves Peeta with the help of Gale and their relationship is close. Peeta and Katniss are together again and Gale gets jealous and helps the capitol. Then he betrays the Capitol and it falls.s. The people cause a rebellion too, and they elect Peeta as their new leader!

  4. Oh wow, what a GREAT prize! I'm horrible at predicting things, so I'm just going to keep it simple: Katniss ends up with Peeta.


  5. I am horrible at predictions, but here is one that I hope- she will be with Peeta.

  6. i guess Peeta and Katniss will be together ...no sure...


  7. Katniss, and Gale will sneak into the Capitol to assinate President Snow and bring down the dictatorship, rescuing Peeta and the others.

    Thanks so much!

  8. Katniss's father is alive and living in district 13

  9. The find out life in district 13 is completely different than anyplace else and the powers that be in the Capital have no control there. Peeta and Katness end up together and work to spread the word to the still standing other districts.

  10. Katniss and Gale will go to the Capitol and got everyone back, including Peeta. I think Katniss is going to have to make a choice between Gale or Peeta. I think she'll choose Gale and Peeta will find someone?


  11. I made sure not read anyone else's comment so I wouldn't be influenced...

    Katniss will choose neither Peeta nor Gale. She will realize she is strong on her own, especially once she is chosen the leader of the new country

  12. Katniss will save Peeta and with Gale's help they will overthrow the government. I think in the end Katniss will end up with Peeta.

  13. I can't really make a prediction because I haven't read the series yet. The first book is on its way in the mail though and I can't wait to read it.
    throuthehaze at gmail dot com

  14. Katniss and Gale will rescue Peeta!

    Also Katniss will pick Gale

  15. Peeta will attempt to eat Katniss's head thinking it's frosting.

    No really, I read an article about a prediction and I definitely agree with the guy. He's guessing that Madge's mother, Maysilee's sister, is high up in the rebellion and will help rescue Peeta and save everyone. Just search for Mockingjay predictions on Google if you'd like to take a look. He definitely makes some interesting points.

    Oh, and Gale and Katniss are going to get together. Just sayin'... *runs before the Peeta fangirls try to stake me*


  16. katniss and gale are going to save peeta and then overthrow the government. also i'm really hoping that peeta and katniss are end up together :D


  17. At the very end people will be happy and there will be a party :) Sorry that's the best I got!

    foltzsfantasticbooks at gmail.com

  18. Hopefully a happily every after with Peeta...


  19. I think Gayle will die :(


  20. Awesome giveaway! Lolz!

    I have a sinking feeling that Peeta is going to do something stupid in order to save Katniss and do the whole martyr thing. :( Too bad too cuz I love Peeta.

  21. OOPS! Here's my email!


  22. Peeta dies so Katniss and Gale can be together as they should!

    cla37619 at gmail dot com

  23. YES!! Look at all these Team Gale fans!

    I have no plot predictions other than Katniss will either end up alone or with Gale.

  24. Either Peeta or Gale will die.

  25. I saw that you are a part of the Debut Author Challenge! That is so amazing that you are supporting debut authors and I only recently found out that I am going to be one!!! I wanted to ask if you wouldn’t mind heading over to my blog and giving me your opinion. As a blogger turned author I would really appreciate it and the publisher is still giving out ARCs so you might have a chance at a free copy! Thank you and I hope you will stop by and check out The Thirteenth Chime!

    P.S.- My release date if Friday the 13th (August this year) isn't that crazy?

  26. Well, I think my worst prediction is, they all die in the end..LOL.

    Nope! I hope Katnis will end up with Gale!

    darlyn225 at gmail dot com

  27. Peeta will be saved and everyone lives happily ever after somehow....


  28. Peeta and Gale will have a showdown, of the dramatic kind. And one of them will die :S


  29. my prediction? umm...something awful will happen to Gale and Katniss finds love in Peeta's arms.

    (I don't like Gale he's a bloody homewrecker) :P

    sensitivemuse at gmail dot com

  30. OOH! Thanks for this! I think that Katniss and Peeta will end up together, and that Gale will die during the assassination plot of President Snow.


  31. My prediction is that Katniss and Peeta will end up together. (They better:)


  32. This a fabulous giveaway and I am sooo excited!
    Only one prediction? Okay, I think that District Thirteen will hatch an assassination plot on President Snow and maybe even some of the gamemakers (that aren't against the rebellion).


  33. My prediction is that we'll learn more about Katniss's father and that he'll turn out to have been trying to stimulate a rebellion against the Capitol.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  34. My answer's pretty, well, simple, I guess. That Katniss will choose Peeta over Gale:D

    Thanks for this contest!:)


  35. Gale dies heroically in battle, and Katniss and Peeta finally get together and live happily ever after.


  36. I do not know because I just started the first book and can't wait to know what happens because I heard so many great things about this books.I do hear alot about peeta so I'm guessing they are going to be good :)Great giveaway thank you so much.

  37. First of all great contest, and thanks for the opportunity to win such an awesome book!!

    I know what I WANT to happen in the third book. I want Katniss, Gale, Finnick, and Haymitch to kick some serious Capitol ass and somehow save Peeta. I also want there to be a thriving district 13, how awesome would that be?! Oh yeah and I want Gale and Katniss to survive and live happily ever after together. :p

    Anyways, thanks again for the contest. My email address is:


  38. My prediction for Mockingjay is that Katniss would choose Peeta, and the capital will forever be destroyed.
    I really realy love this series and I totally believe that Suzanne Collins is going to make a great new series.


  39. Gayle has a major impact on the story.

  40. Katniss convinces Gale to go back and look for Peeta.


  41. The Capitol will be conquered. And Katniss better end up with Peeta. :D Gale will stay as Katniss's best friend. That's what I'm hoping!

    And I want to thank you for this giveaway :D Ah, I'm screaming for excitement for Mockingjay! Ah!


  42. I don't have a prediction about the book as I have just started the series - but I do predict that it will be a huge success! The first two are so popular! Thanks for hosting! Please enter me. I am a follower. bevsharp@desch.org

  43. Maybe Peeta and Katniss will be together.

  44. I predict it will be wonderfully written. I've heard such great things aout this author. I follow.


  45. Predictions? That I probably won't get anything done and will lose sleep if I ever get a copy of Mockingjay. I also predict that my husband will try to sneak a chapter or two when I'm not reading.

    Book prediction: Katniss chooses Peeta, but he later dies in an epic battle to save/defeat an important character. Gale is there to comfort her of course, and she ends up with him.

    Who knows...

    Thanks for the contest!

  46. This more of a hope than a prediction, I think. I think Katniss and Glae will go save Peeta. And on the way, She'll realize Gale is NOT the one for her!

  47. Well, I haven't read any of the books yet, so I'm just going to predict that everyone lives happily ever after!

  48. Peeta becomes someone really important in politics.

    icewoman96 at gmail dot com

  49. Katniss ends up with Peeta!


  50. I predict that Katniss and Peeta will run a rebellion and find out what really happened to District Thirteen after the war. Also, Katniss and Gale get together.


  51. I REALLY hope that Katniss ends up with Peeta! Maybe Gale will find someone else! Man I hope so!!

  52. Peeta and Katniss will finally be together I think . The capitol will be won!


  53. I have always wished from the start that Kat and Gale should be together, but we all know Kat and Peeta will be together after Kat saves Peeta from the Capitol, but when they do Peeta gets hurt, badly. Then they go to discrit 13 and think of a way to win over the Capitol. After they fingure out a plan the Capitol wants a big battle with the disricts and they all battle to the deaths and the people of the disricts win and they get the freedom they should have always had. Oh and Gale meets another girl and falls in love with her, who also is the mayors daughter lol.

  54. Katniss and Peeta end up together in the end! They go to the capitol to kick some butt. The save tons of people. No more future Hunger Games! Gale finds some girl to fall in love with who is not Katniss.

  55. I'm hoping that Katniss and Gale end up toghether - I hope there is tons of nail-biting adventure like the first two books! I am prediciting that someone is secretly evil (Haymitch? I hope not Cinna) and is reporting back to the Capitol! I also have super high hopes for the Thriving District 13! I would love to meet a new character from there!

  56. I truly hope (and think) that Katniss and Peeta will be able to be together. So, I predict that Katniss will finally realize her feelings for him; and, also, that she'll have to give up something in order to get Peeta back.

    Team Peeta!


  57. These are so awesome.

    Peeta dies. Katniss and Gale walk off together hand in hand.

    angiegirl (at) gmail (dot) com

  58. Thanks for the amazing giveaway, like everyone else, I can't wait for this book.

    I think that while in the process of defeating the Capitol and President Snow, Gale will sacrifice himself for Katniss or something and he'll die, and Katniss and Peeta will end up together.


  59. The rebellion will overthrow the government and Peeta and Katniss will end up together.

  60. I haven't read this trilogy yet. I know, shameful, everyone keeps telling me it is a MUST read, so if random-org likes me, could I please ask for the 1st book?

    Thank you! :-)

    stella.elibris (at) gmail (dot) com

  61. I think Katniss will end up with Peeta because Peeta has been more present in the past two books than Gale. I think Gale might die (all stories like these need a sacrifice, right?)

    sarahdc22 (at) gmail (dot) com

  62. My wish is for Katniss to end up with Peeta. But my prediction is, that she won't end up with either Peeta or Gale because she will be too damaged by everything that happend to her....sorry for pessimism :)

    also thank you for an amazing contest!
    my email address:

    judittten at gmail dot com

  63. My prediction for Mockingjay is that someone really close to Katniss, and one of the main charcers will die. I just hope Katniss will get through it.

  64. For sure Katniss and the gang will overthrow the Govt and they will make Katniss the new leader. After they find a free market and people driving around in cars in district 13, Katniss will marry Peeta have kids and become the first female president.....:D

    Thanks for a great giveaway

  65. The revolution awaits in 13, but Katniss can't stay with Peeta left behind. She leads a rescue mission to save him...

    parajunkee at gmail.com

  66. I am a fan of happy ever after endings and for "balance" to be restored so I say that Katniss will play an integral role in the revolution, will be unsure of who to romantically be involved with, and of course somehow things will end happily ever after :)

    Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.
    thebookgurugirl at gmail.com

  67. I predict that somehow Katniss will somehow save Peeta and there will be a happily ever after type of ending.

    Thanks for the contest!

  68. I predict that Katniss and co will overthrow the Capitol! Oh, and of course there will be some sort of Peeta and Gale fight for Katniss! I LOVE PEETA!! :D

    Great Contest!

  69. She'll kill someone off...


  70. Once District 13 starts messing with the Capitol all of the Capitol's gizmos and other spoiled-rich-kid fancies will stop working or cease to exist.

    People in the Capitol, being vain and silly, will not no what to do.

    Chaos ensues.


  71. I think we'll learn much more about Gale in this book. Then the author will pit Gale and Peeta against each other and we'll have to watch Katniss choose.

    clderwee at gmail dot com

  72. I'm going for Peeta - I think she's going to pick him for Katniss.
    That and I think she'll leave the ending a bit...open. Just for our imaginations to figure out. Which will drive me nuts. :)


  73. Undoubtedly, District 13 does indeed exist and everyone lives underground due to radiation... And that many people from District 12 perished (mainly minor characters). I wouldn't be suprised if Peeta's family were killed since they are minor characters and they didn't really case for him (in my opinion)...

    hope I win!

  74. I just started reading The Hunger Games and I'm really loving it so far (I know I'm kinda late with jumping on the fan wagon, but (unfortunately) these books aren't too popular in my country) I'm glad that there are 2 sequels to The Hunger Games: it gives me something to look forward to :)

  75. I love the Hunger Games trilogy! I am definitely team Peeta, let's not kid ourselves he is way better than Gale! :)

    Let's hope Suzanne Collins keeps on writing awesome books beyond the Hunger Games.

  76. Well, I've already read the book and am commenting on this for extra entries in the re-gift giveaway. But my predictions were, prior to reading the book:

    Katniss will wind up with Peeta (check)
    Finnick will get to be w/ Annie (check)
    Snow will die (check)
    Everything else went completely over my head-- I never saw any of it coming. :)
