A Brief Hunger Games Movie Review

Well, The Hunger Games movie received two enthusiastic thumbs up after my daughter viewed it last evening…though it of course took some detours from the book. Some of the great lines in the book didn’t make it…such as “Stay alive” spoken by Haymitch, and the cute tongue in cheek comment from Peeta, “You here to finish me off, sweetheart?” But all in all, the movie was well acted, the visual effects stunning, and will not disappoint fans of the book.

Final report: The book was better, but all this beauty makes up for it. (reference the actors above)

Now, are you Team Peeta or Team Gale?

Books about Teens Gone Bad…and then some…

Found this interesting: Cat Clarke’s top 10 books with teens behaving badly….

Good list. Have to say I just read  Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver, and this book instantly came to mind when I saw this article. It’s number six on her list.  Great book…Clarke describes as “Mean Girls meets Ground Hog Day”…that’s a perfect description…
