Last fall, my family went on a trip to the States for a weekend. My mom, sister and I stopped at a Wal-Mart to look for something - I can't remember what now. I wandered into the book aisle, and I noticed this book called "The Hunger Games". I had heard that it was really good and that I should read it. Because I am the kind of person who buys a book based on its reputation before I personally read it, I bought it that day.
This past Saturday (not a couple days ago but the one before) I had finished reading Jane Eyre, and I knew that the Hunger Games movie was coming out in March, and figured I may as well now read the book now.
I read the whole book in 2.5 days. I couldn't put it down. I was obsessed with this world of Panem and I needed more. Last Tuesday I went to buy the next two books, Catching Fire and Mockingjay. I stayed up until 2:30 in the morning to finish reading Catching Fire. The next day pretty much all I did was read Mockingjay. I just couldn't stop until I knew what was going to happen with these characters that I had grown to love - Katniss, Peeta, Gale, Prim, Cinna, Haymitch...
It's been almost a week since I finished the books and I'm still thinking about them. Chris is probably getting tired of hearing about "Hunger Games this" and "You should sit down and read this book!"
Me, every other day: "The Hunger Games movie comes out March 23!! *squeeeaaaal*"
I am going to see this movie with my sister and a friend of ours, because they've also been reading these books the same time as me. (I beat them because my job sucks and I get no hours, so I have time to read all day) We are all very excited.
Would I be a super geek if I bought the China Glaze "Colors from the Capitol" collection and wore a different color on each nail when I see the movie?
Me: "Chris, is it okay if I pre-order this Hunger Games nail polish collection for $50?"
It's safe to say that I am obsessed.
