the hunger games
I first heard about this book a couple years ago. And, I've gotta admit, I judged before I read. "Kids killing other kids?! Say what?" But, when the movie started getting big, I watched the trailer and thought, "Hmm...I might actually like this." Like a typical book nerd, I had to read the book before I went to see the movie. A fellow co-worker let me borrow the first one...and, my entire family can vouch for me, it was like I disappeared for three days. I was hooked.
Annie and I went to see the movie a couple days later for her birthday. I think they did a super job. But, also typical book nerd, I liked the book better.
So, I know the question you're all asking... Peeta or Gale? Well...despite the fact that I'm sure every girl in the entire world is a Peeta fan, I am too. I can't help it. Haha! What about you?
I have yet to read book two. I think I may wait awhile. No need to disappear again, eh. Plus, I'm like number 30 in the hold list at the library.
I heard a lot about this show before I ever watched it. It was circulating at work and I was reading about it on the internet so, I put myself on hold for season 1. Annie and I set down to watch it one night and, wow, I loved it! It wasn't really what I expected...it was better.
Favorite character? Mine is probably different than most of yours. But that's okay. I really like Mr. Bates. He is just such a nice guy.
I have season 2, after much patience, but have yet to start it. I can't wait to see what happens next!
Since we're talking about obsessions...I'm going to throw in this music video that I love. I drive my brother crazy by playing it over and over again in the car. Great song!
Okay, I want to hear from you. Any new obsessions? Do you share any of mine perhaps?
