Then one of my co-workers heard me talking about how much I wanted to read it and she lent me hers! Yay!
I read it in a few days, but would have probably devoured it in a day if I didn't have to do other things such as work, commute, eat, clean, cook, work out, and write my own book.
Jenn secured our tickets to the Empire Extra Experience when they went on sale. We went last night and it was so worth the extra two bucks to have assigned seats (no showing up a few hours early), leather seats, bigger screen, and subwoofers (shook the floor nicely).
Armed with my smuggled-in water, Reeses Pieces, and Ring-o-los, I sat down and was thoroughly entertained for two point five hours.
I'm not going to ruin it for those who haven't seen it/read it, so I won't tell any details, but I have a feeling this is going to be a phemonenon close to Twilight-level. I kinda like these cult series movies, because it leaves you anticipating the next one. Also, there's usually a cutie-pie boy to stare at.

Liam Hemsworth plays Gale. He didn't get enough screen time.
I haven't read the second book in the series yet. I'll probably wait a bit.
The mockingjay is a bird that is featured in the movie and on the cover of the book. I found a dress with mockingjays on it on the Zara website.
|OK, I lied. I have no idea if these are mockingjays, but the dress is cute|
This is great for the summer, and I think it could work for the early spring too with some black tights and a cardigan.
May the odds be ev-ah in your favor.
