"The Hunger Games"

I saw "The Hunger Games" movie last night and it blew my mind. It was amazing and it made me want to watch it again and again as well as, re-read the whole series.

If you haven't heard of "The Hunger Games" (books or film) then I can only assume you haven't been exposed to any form of pop culture (except for this blog).  Seriously, you have GOT to get out more!

"The Hunger Games" is a book series (three books in total) written by Suzanne Collins revolving around a sixteen year old girl growing up in a futuristic world where children ages 12-18 are chosen each year to compete in a fight to the death while everyone else watches. I like to describe it as a mixture between "The Truman Show" and "Gladiator". I know it sounds gory and I can't believe these books are intended for 13 year old girls, especially because I know how many people my age love these books, but they are super addicting and fun reads. That's why I was so glad when the movie version (out this past Friday starring Jennifer Lawerence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth) stuck with the book and really brought the excitement to the full screen. I was on the edge of my seat the entire movie!

I HIGHLY recommend reading the book series and going to see the movie in theaters now!

I honestly was a little disappointed but, I tend to like the books better than movies anyways. At least I got some SourPatch Kids :)
