The Hunger Games Movie Trailer

1 Comment

I cannot wait for this film to be released. The Hunger Games Trilogy are probably the best young adult books I’ve read since Harry Potter. Collins’ tells an amazing story with rich, beautiful, and sometimes painful, details. Her heroine is not the bravest or strongest but she has the greatest will. Collins also reminds us that there isn’t always a “happy” ending to every story, that sometimes you have to settle for good enough, which in and of itself, is kind of happy. I will definitely be re-reading the series before March. Check out all of the movie info at imdb.com and the official site.

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins


“The thrill-packed final installment of Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy will keep young hearts pounding.”


The actual book blurby (yes, that’s the official name) is longer than what I posted above, but, it gives quite a bit of information for anyone who hasn’t read the series yet so I only posted the last sentence.


I love reading young adult novels. First of all, they are cheaper than regular adult novels. Second, a lot of the time, they are better written and have better developed characters. This series does not disappoint. From the first pages of The Hunger Games, through Catching Fire, to the end of Mockingjay, I loved every word. I read all three books in a matter of days. The entire series was un-put-down-able!


I definitely don’t want to give any more details because I really don’t want to ruin the story for anyone who hasn’t read it, but I definitely recommend all three. And look out for The Hunger Games film coming March 23, 2012.
