The Hunger Games....Coming March 23rd!

I am SO EXCITED to see The Hunger Games when it hits theaters on March 23rd!  I have heard absolute raves about the book (which I MUST read before I catch the flick) and I have heard the movie is going to be just amazing.  In case you are unfamiliar here is a synopsis and a clip of what you have to look forward to next month...


Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which Tributes? must fight with one another until one survivor remains.


Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she's ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.


THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobsons Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 16 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.

Sounds great, right??  I am definitely going to pick this book up to read before it hits the theaters.  Let's read it together.  Order your copy today from Amazon....
