Okay friends, please don't hate me...but I have one question...
Am I the only one who is not all about The Hunger Games right now?
Take a deep breath while that settles in. Now don't get ahead of yourself and accuse me of not reading the book because I read it. I read it over 2 weeks or so. Honestly I didn't want to finish it. It was so disturbing. And even more disturbing was the thought of elementary school kids reading it! When I watch scary movies I feel physically ill so it wasn't surprising that this was a tummy aching book to read. It was not a page turner for me. I made myself finish (I hated Harry Potter the first 50 pages I read and then became obsessed so I wanted to give it a chance). And yes the ending was intense but I didn't run out to get the 2nd book. And I still haven't read it.
I usually am right there on the book/movie bandwagon (Harry Potter, Twilight...okay books NOT movies) but I just can't get into this one. I don't plan on seeing the movie in the theater (it takes a lot for me to go to the movies in the first place, I like watching at home), I will probably wait for it to come out on Netflix. Elizabeth Banks was on Ellen yesterday and said the movie is projected to make $100M this weekend!
Please don't hate me and unfollow my blog :-) I just want to know what draws you to the book. I have heard of people getting mockingjay tattoos, camping out for days and doing some crazy things for this book/movie. So if you are a Hunger Games fanatic, tell me!
Speaking of books, last night I finished Taylor Armstrong's memoir
I will now watch the show with such a different heart for Taylor. I cannot believe what she went through but her character all makes sense to me now. I am so grateful for a loving relationship with my husband and I pray for women experience what Taylor did. I highly recommend it.
