I'm just going to start off by saying that I'm a girl. That shouldn't surprise any of you.

I'm a senior in high school. If I don't update on the day I typically update on (Monday), it's most likely I haven't had the time to finish the chapter because I was too busy with school work and managing that pesky thing called grades. Oh, and working on college applications, can't forget that.

I'm a bookworm. I can't count how many books I've read over the years, but I can tell you it's a lot. And I can read fast if I really put forth the effort/time, which coincedentally can get very annoying if I don't have a follow up book I haven't read in my possession.

I'm going tell you all, the viewers, a story about how I got interested in the Hunger Games, and it wasn't from the books.

I didn't get into the Hunger Games until I realized they were making the first book into a movie. At the time, I only vaguely knew what it was, but not what it was about. It never grabbed my attention--don't ask me why, because I don't even know--until I watched the movie trailer and was blown away by how interesting/cool it was. I got the books for Christmas and refused to read them until I saw the movie, because I didn't want to be disappointed in the film, like I usually am when I read the book before seeing the movie (I shudder even now thinking about what was done to Eragon--Anyone see that after reading the book? Major disappointment). My sister, on the otherhand, went ahead and read the book, professing how awesome it was and telling me small bits about some of the plot. I told her to shut up.

When I saw the movie with my sisters and a couple of our friends, I thought it was amazing. Like, one of the best things I've ever seen (but I say that at just about everything, so those words don't hold much weight). I thought it was so amazing that I saw it twice--this time after I read the book--which I don't typically do. My sister, the one that read the book, thought it was okay, didn't really care for it. I don't understand why she feels that way, honestly. After reading the book, yes, I noticed a few discrepancies, but they didn't bother me. After all, they adapted a book into an 2hr and 30min movie and actually did a pretty good job in comparison to some of the other film adaptations I've seen. I'm not going to go hating on it just because they left out Madge, for example. Sorry Madge.

But, of course, it goes without being said that the books will always be better than their movie counterparts. So yes, when it comes down to it, I will always prefer the books over the movies. But I've got to give it my thanks. Without it, I would've never gotten into the Hunger Games.

Thank you Suzanne Collins, Lionsgate, and Gary Ross. You've got me hooked.

Hello, Stranger by bohemian.mind reviews
He found a bridge. A small bridge, barely there. He was just going to stay out of sight and make sure his double was treating her right, that's all: (just when he thought he was over her, over who he used to be). But he'd only been doing what he always does best - running. New companion, new future love - supposedly - and new life. But it was all a fake. Isn't that always the way?
