 man
they are really -p-l-u-g-g-i-n-g. this movie. Go to hot topic and find Hunger Games pillowcases, temp tattoos, keychains, nail polishes, baseball caps, toilet seats, toothbrushes, , staplers.......



I was reading a fitness mag and they literally had Hunger Games-based recipes( with the caption, I kid you not, "Eat Like Katniss". I wish they were kidding)


Checked USA Today's bestselling list, THG 1, 2, 3 top the all-genre list, but the youth list is where it gets really interesting. THG #1, 2, 3, round out the top three of course. Then in 4th place, comes the (seriously)? boxed trilogy set. Two places down is the ? THG Tributes guide and then, three places down, the Hunger Games behind the scenes movie compendium...(Then the Rick Riordan books start to make their appearance, but by then I've completely lost hope in humanity)


Nice. Really nice, considering the movie comes out in a whole month.


Nothing adds more magic to your favorite book series than knowing all the time there are executives behind the scenes rakin' in the dough.

  1. Ha. I read Twilight 6 years ago, when it was still somewhat new and not a soul had heard about it. I was seriously THE biggest fan of that series until the movie came out and all of the hoopla came with it. Of course, not long after that, I made the decision to not read paranormal-type books anymore, so it didn't matter much that i was a tad bit heartbroken at how blown out of proportion it got. But either way...sometimes it's nice to have a favorite book that's kind if like your little secret... Still haven't decided if I'll be seeing this movie or not, but I'm curious to find out how good it is, and how close it sticks to the book.

  3. I'm so excited for this movie, but I hate all the attention it's getting. Like I feel like it's not as sacred or special anymore. Sigh :'(

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO



































love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Similarities:
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.


Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.



I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
