Have any of you read the Hunger Games trilogy? Anyone? I am on the first book, and I have to say that I am addicted. It's strange that I love this a lot quicker than I loved Twilight, but then again, the first Twilight book was rather...uneventful, at least for the most part. Anyway, I saw the movie trailer for The Hunger Games the second time I saw Breaking Dawn - Part 1 in theaters, and I knew I had the read at least the first book prior to the movie releasing. The Hunger Games is downright awesome. I have become a fangirl in so little time, LOL. Also, I've noticed that there have been lots of comparisons between the Twilight Saga and the Hunger Games trilogy, but I just don't get it. The two series are nothing alike. But if I did have to choose, I'd pick Twilight as a whole because I know and love it more, but I will still admit that Katniss Everdeen would kick Bella Swan's ass in a heartbeat. Katniss is so, so heroic, brave, and...well, not dependent, like a certain protagonist we know. I think The Hunger Games has a better story, but Twilight has better characters (aside from the main ones). What do they call Hunger Games fans? Tributes, perhaps? Well, I must be a Tribute, then. I remember last year in my English class, everyone in my class was reading the Hunger Games trilogy, and I was like, "Forget it, I'm not reading that." (I was immediately turned off by the nickname of "Catnip") But now, since my mom bought me the first book in the series, I've decided to read it, over a year later than everyone in my English class. Now my "list of things I have to buy before February" has expanded. I now have to buy the other Hunger Games books as well as the Breaking Dawn - Part 1 score. And then there's the Breaking Dawn - Part 1 DVD in February...I need to earn some extra cash. So on the second part of my blog, I would like to go over Kristen Stewart's upcoming movie, Snow White and the Huntsman. Now, I'm not one for princess movies, but I was convinced I had to see this after I saw the trailer and have been seeing it at the movies ever since. Snow, like Katniss, seems a lot more heroic than Bella, but aside from the comparisons, I still want to see the movie. It looks pretty cool...just not as cool as The Hunger Games. ;)
So, what do you think?
