Hungry for Hunger Games
It's Monday. And I just don't feel ready for it. In fact it's almost 4 pm on Monday, and I still don't feel ready for it. We couldn't get a sitter this weekend, which is a regularly scheduled and essential part of our weekend (apparently, since I'm going batty). And now I feel like I'm suffering from lack of rejuvenation and total and utter depression that I'm like the only person on the planet who hasn't seen The Hunger Games.
I usually don't worry about seeing a movie when it's new. I read and loved the Twilight books but lost interest in those movies the second I saw Kristen Stewart and her overly shifty, downcast eyes and irritated expression in a preview. We still haven't seen the last one... or two... I don't know.
But The Hunger Games.. I think it's the only book I've finished in just a couple of days. I'm not that kind of reader. There are too many other things that steal my "free" time, sadly, and I don't make reading as much of a priority as I wish I did. I'm so sad when I finish a really great book, but it takes me a long time to get into another one and sometimes a long time to get through the first half of whatever I finally choose before it really pulls me in.
The Hunger Games was a serious exception though, like it is for most. And was such a fascinating, fast story. From what I can tell so far, I LOVE who they've cast in most of the roles... and I especially love the face of Katniss... I'm a little nervous that Peeta might look too little-teenage-heart throb- and less .... like he does in my bread-scented dreams..... just kidding. But I haven't heard anyone complain, so maybe I won't feel like that once I've seen it. I'm dying. I think we'll have to do a week-night date.
The photo? Just because.
