Thoughts on the Hunger Games Movie

Thoughts on the Hunger Games Movie

No, not Catching Fire—I haven’t seen that one yet. It actually took me a long time to be even a little interested in seeing The Hunger Games. I loved the book, but am historically disappointed in movies adapted from books. I know, I know, different mediums, different artists—but it’s very hard for me to separate the … Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Romances in Books

I went with the “awesomely romantic couples” interpretation of this week’s theme. 1. Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth – Persuasion, Jane Austen.

It’ll only take you … Continue reading

Since the first book, The Hunger Games, ended on a cliffhanger, I was desperate to read this book—but when I realized that the sequels weren’t out in paperback yet (they still aren’t, as far as I know), my OCD kicked in and I refused … Continue reading

The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games is yet another recommendation from Nicole. It’s a young adult book, so I was somewhat skeptical (Twilight is young adult, after all) but from what I had heard, from Nicole and others, it was worth a read. So when I saw it in BC’s bookstore last week, I bought it. The Hunger … Continue reading
