Let the Games Begin…
Its midnight and the much anticipated Hunger Games movie has finally hit theatres. Did any of you hit up the midnight showing? Sadly, we did not buy tickets for the very first showing of the movie. Midnight is well past our “school night” bedtimes and I am not the best at dodging tweens in the concession stand lines when I’m tired. These sisters will wait it out and see the movie hopefully Sunday or Monday.
Better question: did you read the books? I thought the girl working the tiny bookstore in Breckenridge, Colorado last winter was crazy when I asked her for a book recommendation and The Hunger Games was what she threw at me. I quickly told her that I was not into Sci-Fi and asked for more recommendations. Lo and behold, I left the store with the book and proceeded to read it and the two others in the series within about a week. Throughout my reading of it I kept trying to explain to my mom and boyfriend what the book was about. If you’ve read it, you know what I’m talking about when I say that it really can’t be explained. To fully understand, you’ve just gotta read it. Come on, everyone’s doing it!
