Katniss + Q

I never read Harry Potter or Twilight or any real series besides The Baby Sitters Club (Stacey was my fav!) and Encyclopedia Brown.. Then my dearest Erica sent me a simple email (a couple of months ago actually) only stating that I MUST read The Hunger Games. And then this Friday, for some strange reason, US Weekly and EW did not show up as they usually do. I dusted off the Kindle and was transported to the country of Panem.

I will leave you no spoilers. But book one is done, and book two is being started as soon as I press publish post on blogger.com.

Read it. Movie comes out in March. Unfortunately Michael Fassbender was not cast, but it still looks amazing. I'd link the trailer but advise you not to watch it until after you read the book!! I feel like the nerd at the sleepover. I'm totally going to go see it on IMAX!

And for those worrying throughout this post, US and EW came first thing on Saturday am. All is well.

You are crazy. Who were they supposed to cast Fassbender as?

Are you Team Peeta or Gale? In my mind, Gale is super hot and I have to admit I'm sort of Team Gale.

Annelise, you kkkknow I would not have questioned it if they had cast Michael Fassbender even as Katniss......

I'm with you -- never read Twilight or Harry Potter, just trashy VC Andrews novels when I was a teen.

TOTALLY love all the Hunger Games books. Super excited for the movie!

I really was worrying about your US and EW!

THE BEST. So glad you're reading them, the second one was actually my favorite of the series. So much goodness.

when you posted this, I was like "ok, maybe I need to give this a book a try" because I totally trust your judgement on all things pop culture. cut to monday with me in line at target during my lunch break with a copy of the book.

I'm not a harry potter reader nor a twihard but I'm seriously contemplating a katniss costume for Halloween this year. I'm 200 pages in and am RIVETED.
