The Hunger Games

Like everyone else, I am obsessed with The Hunger Games. If you haven’t heard of it, you are missing out!  This “teen novel” is the new must-read series. I started reading the first book, The Hunger Games in the fall as a repeated recommendation from my best friend, Lauren. I couldn’t put it down. Then came the next two books in the trilogy..Catching Fire and Mockingjay. My favorite: Catching Fire. There were so many “ahhh” moments where I couldn’t help but make noises out loud.

This Friday the book-to-movie for The Hunger Game comes out. I have my t-shirt made and my midnight ticket purchased. I am SO ready. Here are a few of my favorite HG things:
