The last film of The Hunger Games series, Mockingjay Part 2, is finally here! Having to wait a year for its November 20 release was a pain, but I'm hoping it will be well worth it to see Katniss take on President Snow. The end of a series is always bittersweet because even though you can re-read and re-watch it, the element of surprise is taken away. But fear not, there are many fantastic series with strong female characters like Katniss to excite you all over again.
