" I think Mockingjay had to be tragic and it had to leave scars. Suzanne Collins said from the beginning she wanted to be real about war and the aftermath... especially when talking to children. "
I love how Katniss realized that Gale was never what she really needed. I think people suffer a great deal from not realizing this in their own similar situations.
I loved falling in love with Peeta even though I was Team Gale at the beginning of the first book (shush!). I love Peeta for the same reason I love Stefan. " I kept thinking that Katniss was struggling to hold their friendship together because it was one of the few things she had left, even when it was clear to her that they were moving in opposite directions."
I love how Collins killed off Prim - adorable Prim. I don't think anyone thought she would die. Her character was built up very subtly but effectively, making us fall in love with her only to have Collins break our hearts into a million little pieces. She made a great point in taking her away.
One of my biggest heartbreaks in the series was when Finnick died. He had one of the nicest subplots and he was such an interesting character. And gawd, Annie. Poor Annie.
I love how I first read Hunger Games and didn't think of it at all as a love story. I love how realistic the whole thing was and had to shudder at how close we are to getting there. I love how Collins seems to take a jab at reality shows *cough* Big Brother *cough*. I love the tragedy of an ending Mockingjay was. Suzanne Collins gave us no closure at all to convey her message.
I love how even though Katniss and Peeta ended up together, they were left broken. And I love how you can turn that around: "That even after all the crap they've been put through, they at least found some semblance of happiness amidst their broken selves."
If you read the books and did not feel that punch in your face, I'm sorry for you.
You're Welcome! :)
Thank you TheHungerGames twitter account! Posted this here and on fb (first to postI AM SOOOOOO HAPPY! I JUST DIED
Prim is just adorable and so is Rue.
Effie is as imagined (minus the seemingly British accent).
Peeta.... oh Peeta
Cinna... Haymitch... ahhhhhh!!!!
Cato is hot
And I am excited to watch Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss! Go Katniss!
Thank you movie makers for making an awesome trailer! Stoked!
I CANNOT WAIT TIL MARCH 23. Will definitely buy tickets in advance.
1. Titanic: The Legend Goes On
Okay, a lot of people hated this. I watched it a long time ago and I liked it. I don't know if I'd still like it when I watch it again. I loved the animal passengers especially the dalmatians and the love story of Angelica and William. I also loved the ending of this Titanic!
"An animated retelling of the worst passenger ship disaster in history. In this version, love blossoms between the upper-class Sir William and the blue-collar Angelica, who is hoping to find romance in America. At the same time, there are also a number of animal passengers, including talking dogs, cats and mice, who are also looking forward to arriving in the New World"
2. The Black Cauldron
I don't remember much of the story anymore but I do remember Taran is a pig keeper. And I remember that cute little fella Gurgi who I think is a dog. I'll have to download this again to put the pieces together though :D
"A young boy and a bunch of misfit friends embark on a quest to find a dark magic item of ultimate power before a diabolical tyrant can."
3. Happily Ever After
This one was really good. It's the story after Snow White and her prince got married. It's a really creepy film though. The villain was freaking creepy especially when he pretended to be the prince. Also there are 7 female dwarfs in this film.
"The story is an unofficial sequel to the fairy tale of Snow White. Aside from Snow White herself, the prince she falls in love with, the magic mirror, and the references to the wicked queen, all of the characters in Happily Ever After are unique to this film."
4. The Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland
Adorable characters and a very amusing story, need I say more? Ahhh I loved this so much.
"The cuddly Care Bears star in this charming feature-length adaption of the classic story of Alice in Wonderland. A young girl named Alice and the Care Bears travel together into the whimsical land of the Mad Hatter and the March Hare. In this magical story about friendship and trust, Alice and the Care Bears try to thwart an evil wizard's attempt to become the King of Wonderland."
5. My Little Pony: Princess Promenade
Basically ponies and prom. Too cute!
"The ponies' annual Spring Promenade goes awry when a 1,000-year-old dragon awakens and fulfills a royal prophecy."
6. Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders
This was a series, I just found out when I watched it recently. I only had episodes 1 and 2 on VHS before so I thought it was a movie. I love their pretty costumes and pretty magical animals. I didn't know who I liked more before between Tamara and Gwenevere but I think I like Tamara more now :D I still know every line to this! This is definitely a favorite and I still wish I was the owner of the Heart Stone. The opening and ending themes never fail to make me smile.
"A young princess and her friends defend the throne of New Camelot against an evil sorceress."
WARNING: Crazy fan writing ahead. I can be annoying. I watched the trailer again and got excited AGAIN so shoot me. :))
I read the books last year (right after Mockingjay was made available so I could read them straight) and if you've been following my blog or following me on twitter, you know how much of a fanatic I am of this trilogy :D It has been one year and 2 months of waiting. FOUR MORE MONTHS BABYYYY! I'm sorry I can't help being giddy and excited with the new stuff that keeps getting posted. I follow them of FB and twitter and I've been waiting on every detail (What more the fans who read HG in 2008 had to wait a year 2 years to complete the trilogy?)
I love that the fan base is growing rapidly :) Everyone gets to read the awesomeness!
And honestly yes, I'm glad Ate made me buy the book and I got to read it before most people as cocky as that sounds.

Before anything else, a big THANK YOU to everyone who still reads my blog. It's not really a big number I'm just glad to see the stats and see there are people who regularly check out my obsessive, complaining sometimes dramatic sometimes nonsense sometimes narcissistic posts. Thanks for the time. :)

I'm sorry I cannot stop posting about these books. The movie is gonna be out soon and I don't wanna be selfish but It's not gonna be the same when everyone knows about it. Good that their gonna get a bigger fanbase but I hate it when there are know-it-alls cause let's face it, many many people are like that. If you read the books, fine, but if you're just basing it on research.. not cool. I want it to turn out like the Harry Potter saga not Twilight.
I'm not sure how the movie can ruin the books I'm just sure that movies find ways to all the time but I'm sure it's gonna be a movie to see anyway. I love how the story is so much like our world now. It's not exactly and literally like what takes place but the whole concept it's based on. I love the drama and the tragedy as well. And I love Peeta Mellark
So after, when he whispers, "You love me. Real or Not?"
