Okay, so a couple weeks ago, I posted the the trailer for reading The Hunger Games movie, and admitted that I…er…hadn’tactuallyreadthemoranything.
A lot can change in a couple weeks though, and now I’ve read my way through the trilogy. And yes, once I got past the first few chapters, I NEEDED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED AND I DIDN’T CARE ABOUT STUPID THINGS LIKE WORK OR SLEEP, ONLY WHAT HAPPENED IN THE BOOK. Now I know my districts from my tributes, and I quickly found a favorite character (other than Katniss, of course. What can I say? I love Peeta. Sue me,) and I have to admit, all I can say is…wow. I mean, just…wow. You Hunger Games fans weren’t kidding, were you?
And now I’m totally excited for the new movie…I mean, I was excited when I had absolutely no idea what was going on, but now that I know the story? I can’t wait. I’ve started playing what if, like you do when a book you love gets turned into a movie—what will Cinna’s “Girl on Fire” dress look like? How creepy is the arena going to be? And will we see Peeta and Katniss in the cave (please? please?!)
Luckily, we have this handy dandy OMG SO AWESOME countdown widget to tell us EXACTLY how much time we have left. Okay, fellow Hunger Games fans (’cause I’m so totally one of you now,) what do you want to see in the movie?!
