The Hunger Games ♥

Katniss: So, since we were five, you never even noticed any other girl?
Peeta: No, I noticed just about every girl but none of them made a lasting impression but you.

I died.

One of my summer must-do's is to make up for my reading. The last ten months of college consumed me --- and I mean all of me. My time, my energy, my brain cells, my social life, and yes, my constant need to read. So I made a list of the things I must do this summer and yes, TO READ topped the list! :)

Since I'm a sucker for Nicholas Sparks' books, I was rather expecting one of his creations to be the first book I'll read this summer. Probably The Lucky One or Message in the Bottle.

But to my surprise, I found myself reading a completely different book. It's The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

It's not like the ones I usually read because adventure books don't seem to thrill me. (You can call me boring now, whatever. >:P) Maybe it's because I always seem to find myself lovestruck at books with a romantic plot in a boy's point of view. So, I must say, that reading The Hunger Games is a first and whoa, did I looooove the book!

Okay, I'm not going to blabber about the whole story or how it ended because I want to thrill you. Yes, thrill you. But still, allow me to let you see a glimpse of how the story goes.

It's not your typical story. Everything's very unpredictable. Soon enough, I'm sure you will have a hard time putting the book down. (I even resorted to bringing the book to the mall! It's that addictive. ) It's a story about a reality show in Panem in the year 2720. (Correct me if I'm wrong) The whole show focuses on one rule; kill or be killed. All the "players" are sent on an arena, depending on the producers of the show. It may be in a desert, forest, island, you'll never know. Each district in the country is to send one boy and one girl tribute to represent them in the reality show. Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark represented District 12. To survive the "Hunger Games", you must be likable enough to attract sponsors. They will be the ones to supply your basic needs in the arena. The Star-crossed Lovers from District 12: This was Katniss and Peeta's strategy to attract sponsors. They had to pretend that they were madly in love with each other. So the games started and guess what? Their strategy worked! Not just for the sponsors but to them. Yes, they fell in love. And what happened? Only the two of them were left in the games. KILL OR BE KILLED. Again, that's the theme.

Oooh, I bet you're wondering how the story ended! Read the book! It's to die for!♥

And oh, PEETA MELLARK'S JUST TOO DREAMY. He's not your cliche fantasy character like Edward Cullen or something. Peeta Mellark is real. He doesn't sparkle, he doesn't suck blood and he's 100% human. (I have nothing against Edward Cullen, by the way. I just can't help but compare them :D Forgive me, Edward Cullen fans :D ) Peeta Mellark's one of the reasons why The Hunger Games is definitely a must-read!

And oh, another oh! In March 2012, The Hunger Games Movie will be appearing on the big screen! I can't wait! I swear I'll watch it on its premiere date! I can't let the world end without me watching it! I do hope they get the right characters for the film! Fingers crossed! But I have a bet, though! Kaya Scodelario as Katniss and Alex Pettyfer as Peeta! PERFECT! See?

Read the book! You'll love it, I swear! ;)
