This whole month, I have not minded acting like a preteen and being geekily excited for tonight! Tonight, I will be joining the masses, waiting in line, and screaming for The Hunger Games movie. And it is going to be glorious!
I read the books over a year ago, and decided to re-read them because the first time was a literally a blur. The second time around, I am more invested in the story. I feel like I am rediscovering it, and I want to zip through it, but want to make it last as well. Katniss, Peeta, Rue, Gale, Haymitch, etc. Everyone holds my attention. I just loved re-reading it! And I am just halfway through Catching Fire right now.
I have been following the movie news closely, and just cannot wait to see it. All the reviews are positive, and I am expecting the movie to be different from the books, but that is just to be expected. I hope it follows as closely as possible. And I hope I don’t get squeamish. But don’t expect me to hold my tears back. I’m pretty sure they will flow freely in at least one scene. I’ll let you know what I think as soon as possible!
Are you rushing to the theaters this weekend? Are you still reading the books? Are you re-reading the books? Let me know below.
