Being a young mom means we met a little early, but I get to love them longer.

I finished The Hunger Games books!

I know at least one of my followers has read the books, and since they are such a popular series, I figure some of the others may have too. So, I decided to offer my views here WITHOUT spoiling anything.

Overall, I loved the books. My only complaint is that the second and third books felt rushed. I really wish she would have elaborated them into longer books or maybe even into a forth book. I felt a bit of disconnect with Katniss in the last few chapters of the book because everything was so rushed. It would have been awesome to have another book in the series! I did like the way it ended though!
I've already told Chris I want the books for Christmas lol. I borrowed them from my mom, and I read the last two (almost 800 pages) in four days total lol.

I found out that Catching Fire won't be in theaters until November 2013. Such a long time to wait! I'll be at the midnight premier. I know that for sure! Lol.

They are filming part of the movie in Atlanta starting next month. So close to here! I wish I could go down there and watch some of the production! That would be so awesome! I have no idea where in Atlanta they'll be filming though.

I can't believe I have to wait over a year for the next movie! And then probably another year and a half for Mockingjay. Such a long time! These movies better be good!

I think the first movie did a pretty good job of capturing the book. There were a few things that I don't really see why they changed, and there was a lot of stuff that they left out at the end that I seems like it was pretty important leading up to the next movies. Hopefully they'll pay a little more attention to detail for the next movies. 


  1. I agree with you about the last 2 being rushed, especially the last few chapters of Mockingjay.

    I liked how she ended the series too. I can not wait for the last 2 movies. It's going to take forever though.

  2. Yeah, I thought she could have done a lot more with the recovery and the love aspects, but instead it was all just shoved in the last chapter. I was disappointed about that, but she still wrapped it all up with a nice pretty bow lol.
    I feel almost lost without having it by my side to read whenever I want :(
