The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games

Katniss Everdeen, a girl of sixteen who lives with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to death before and survival for her is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.
The Games have finally started and Katniss teams up with Rue, the girl form district 11. Unfortunately Rue is killed in a fight to destroy the food supply of the Career Tributes. After Rue’s death, the announcer, wanting to bring back the romance between Peeta and Katniss, changes the rules, now two people from a single district can win. Before she can stop herself, Katniss calls out Peeta’s name. Katniss goes in search of Peeta and finds him wounded and camouflaged in the muddy bank of a stream. Eventually Katniss and Peeta are successful in killing the rest of the tributes.
So that means the two of them have won; but the story is not yet finished. Who will live? Katniss or Peeta.
Read the book to see the fate of these star-crossed lovers in a fight to live and love.
My take on the book: a full on mystery; an adventure to live with a hint of romance between the lead protagonists. An intriguing book, a wonderful story and some spicy romance make this book a complete package. Don’t believe me? Try for yourself.
As always, the cast:
Katniss Everdeen- the original Katniss was played by Jennifer Lawrence but I think Emma Watson would suit the role as well
Peeta- the original role was played by Alexander Ludwig but since there has to be a change on my take, I would recommend Aaron Johnson.
God, he gives me butterflies deep inside 😉
Happy reading 😀

Life Doesn’t Stop For Anybody

You know how when you really need someone, but then stop yourself thinking that it is just no use opening your pain in front of anyone else, because they won’t understand it? If yes, then you must know what I’m talking about.

It just gets really infuriating and not depressing after a while; especially with me. I am more disgusted with my inability to find somebody who might begin to empathize with me, than being sad about it.

But you know what? Like someone told me once (or I might have seen it on How I Met Your Mother) when you get really sad, you should quit being sad, and start being awesome instead! 😉 Because in the end, those ‘friends’ aren’t going to stay with you forever. You have to face the big, bad world on your own sometime, too.

People leave, they change, and life doesn’t stop for anybody.

So with the hope that someday I will definitely get all the bliss back in my life that I want (and need, too), I’ll take your leave.

As they say, where there’s hope, there’s the will to move forward. And of course, where there’s me, there’s sheer awesomeness 😉

See you soon! 🙂
