Happy Hunger Games Week

Hi there! ;-D You know how Korean Dramas are not very good for one's health, because they're seriously addicting, can cause lack of sleeps, irrational behaviors (happy, sad, irate, giddy, in-love...), lack of focus, dream distortions, and what have you's, well, all these plus among other things, also hold true for reading The Hunger Games Trilogy. So yes, if you haven't caught the hunger, you're forewarned...the Capitol is watching!
The Hunger Games Trilogy 
Theatrics aside, besides my crazy penchant for everything-Korean, I'm born a bookworm. I love to read (peek at my bookshelf), and I can speed read. Most often than not, I know of the book version first, before its screenplay adaptation. But every so often, the movie adaptation captivates me so much, so I get the book version thereafter. Having said that, after reading the two books, and I'm now halfway through the final, I'm giddy! I like to talk about it, so much so that I'm on the verge of being a spoiler!

Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss. She played Mystique for the X-Men First Class. 
Josh Hutcherson as Peeta (I love! Go Peeta!). He's Gabe, the adorable boy of Little Manhattan. 
Liam Hemsworth as Gale. 
The book is targeted to young adults, much like how the Twilight books are. Don't get me wrong, I also went into the whole cycle of being addicted to the book series, until, I just had so much of the fanfare of Kristen and Rob Patz. Sometimes, I just want to disassociate my reading experience from the whole movie. That's just me saying, because I still watch them over and over again. ;-D Anyhow, the characters in The Hunger Games evoke deeper emotions... life and death. They live in a very nasty world where-bad-things-happen-to-good-people. Forgive my lack of depth, because I'm keeping myself from elaborating further. I'm mighty sure, that after March 23, the world will be desperately waiting for the next movie installments...or if you're like me, read the books to satiate one's hunger. ;-D National Bookstore is on Sale, I got my set for 20% off. So... May be the odds be ever in your favor! Happy Hunger Games!

About Me

My photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
