I know I said I wasn’t going to post this weekend due to birthday partying and hat wearing and cake eating, but I just couldn’t wait to share this news.
I’m gearing up for the release of Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, the much anticipated third and final book of the Hunger Games trilogy. I’m so excited I took the day after its release off work so that I could stay up all night reading. That’s the kind of fanatic I am.
Well that week is a theme week here at Tell Great Stories. It’ll be Dystopian literature all day, all the time. I’ve got a bunch of great posts lined up, some book reviews, and other great stuff I haven’t quite pulled together yet. Last night I was working on the graphic for the theme week and this is what I came up with. I have to tell you I’m so smitten with this banner that I’m thinking about redoing my Tell Great Stories banner in a similar style. Let’s here it for dystopian storytelling where no one bathes enough and everyone is running from something terrible!
Tell your friends to stop by if they like that sort of thing. Hot Dystopian Summer Nights begins August 23rd!
*And yes. Today is my birthday. I am 31 years old. I will be celebrating it in my pajamas eating pizza, cake, and playing board games with friends.
