Yes, I am a 35 year old woman and I am beside myself with excitement about the upcoming release of the movie The Hunger Games. This popular book by Suzanne Collins was made into a movie that is being released on March 23 at Midnight.
Like the Twilight Saga and Harry Potter, this series is highly anticipated by thousands of people worldwide. I am one of them and I am not ashamed to admit it.
I read this book when it first came out. It was recommended to me by another teacher-friend of mine, Laura. I know, based off of her glowing report, that I would fall in love with the book. I did more than fall…I plummeted!
My husband and I read these books in record time. Staying up until the wee hours of the morning to finish. It was literally edge of your seat reading. I finished the last of the 3 books wanting more. I was so immersed in the story line and characters and the fact that is was unlike anything I had ever read before or since.
Seeing this, my 12 year old begged me to read this book. I bought him his own copy and he literally stayed up all night reading it. We were neck in neck to finish the last book. If nothing more, it gave us something in common and another topic to discuss and debate.
So I felt it was timely to make a fresh loaf of bread to share with someone who needs it, Like Peeta did with Katniss.
Leave me a comment below if you TOO are a Hunger Games fan 🙂
