Hunger Games

(Pictures do not directly relate to post, but remind me of the setting of The Hunger Games.)

My new favorite book series lately has been The Hunger Games. I LOVE this book. I feel like I relate so well  to the main character, Katniss. And her younger sister reminds me so much of my younger sister. The story is interesting and I love how the author lets the story unfold.
I finished the second book and am looking forward to reading the next one. I listened to both books and love how the narrator does the voices and narrates. I especially love Effie Trinkets voice.
I haven't wanted to go see a specific movie in theaters for a while, but I am excited to see this one which is coming out soon.

I could never really get into other popular books series like Twlight and Harry Potter. Finally, a popular book series that I can really get into!


  1. Now if only we knew who was writing this, Talmage or Rachel.

    Dana is starting the 3rd book too. Dying to see the movie. I told her I'd have to preview it first and see how it is.

  2. nevermind. You said younger sister. Talmage doesn't have a younger sister.

    (let the jokes

  3. It says posted by Rachel at the end, but I know that hardly anyone sees that. I need to find a way to make it stand out more.

  4. Don't watch the movie till you finish the 3rd book. Books are never as good if you've watched the movie first. Then you envision the movie stars as the characters.

    As much as I love movies, in some ways they ruin the books...

    I love to check you guys out to see how things are going back east!

  5. Unfortunately, I watched the movie trailer before I started reading so I already have an image of each of the characters. I think Rachel read the first two before she saw the characters on film.
