The Hunger Games Movie

This week, I will be attending a Breaking Dawn Premiere Party Extravaganza put on my the lovely Erin. We will be attending the 12am showing of the movie after. It is going to be a late night. I finally finished reading The Twilight Saga, all four books on Sunday night.

The Hunger GamesBut, my true love The Hunger Games trilogy has their first movie premiering next year, March 23, 2012. I first heard about The Hunger Games from Tiffany Romero in 2010. We were at lunch at The Blissdom Conference and we were discussing books. I remember Tiffany telling me that I HAVE TO READ The Hunger Games. So as soon as I got home from Tennessee, I bought the first book. It was love at first chapter….

If you haven’t read The Hunger Games yet, here is a little brief synopsis:

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games.  Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy.  If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

I love these individual posters of the characters. I hope they live up to everyone’s expectations. I always worry about the actor casting when books turn into movies. I’m sure everyone can’t wait to see “Katniss, Peeta, and Gale”.  I am pretty excited for this movie.

Erin is already thinking about a Hunger Games Premiere Party. And honestly, I am too. I already created a board on Pinterest, titled “Hunger Games”. I’m going to put all of my inspiration and ideas on there.

I am listening to them on audio - SO good, but for the longest time I thought the narrator just had a pretentious way of saying peter...lol I'm on book 2 right now - they are just now in training :) Have you read 11-23-63 yet? Another good one (so far)

I kind of want that Hunger Games hoodie. I love the Hunger Games. And I loved Twilight though I'm not nearly as obsessed with it now as I was when I read it. It's kind of weird that my daughter's going to the midnight showing of Breaking Dawn and I'm not. Hope you have a great time!
