I just finished reading The Hunger Games trilogy. I stayed up to the wee hour of 10:48 p.m. last night to read the final pages of Mockingjay. Don't worry, I'm not gonna spoil it for you and tell you that they all die. I KID. They don't! I mean, some do! But. Wait. Fuck.
It was a good, little trilogy. I'm a bit over the love-triangle, mopey-girl-can't-choose-between-two-boys storyline (yes, Bella Swan, I'M LOOKIN' AT YOU), but at least Katniss Everdeen has a spine. Katniss is empowered and badass and doesn't teach young girls who read the series that OH MY GOD YOU WILL JUST DIE IF THIS BOY DOES NOT LOVE YOU!1!!1!11
I love you, Twilight. No really. I totally do. Guilty!
I'm just sayin'.
With that said, I can't even say I really like Katniss, because a lot of the time I didn't. To be fair, it was only when she was in her Gale or Peeta? Gale or Peeta? Wah, life is hard, I don't love EITHER of them. OR DO I? BUT WHICH ONE! Neither! Gale or Peeta? I FEEL SO BAD! phases. The rest of the time she was killer.
Of course, as predicted, I'm super pumped for the first movie to come out in March. It'll help me drown the pain of an ended Harry Potter series and an almost-over Twilight series. Because I'm a total nerd, I went to www.thecapitol.pn to find out (!!) what Capitol District (!!) I'm in!! It just... delegates you. So, it turns out I'm in District 12. THAT'S RIGHT. I'm just hanging out with Katniss and Peeta and Gale. Well, you know, if they weren't all dead.
