Here's the movie preview on youtube for those who haven't seen it.

What I loved most about the book is that Katniss is such a likable character.

I'm at Chapter 7 now. As I'm reading, I'm wondering why I'm reading this odd book, but I can't wait to see what happens next!! You're right, it's the likeable characters!! Waiting for the games to begin and nervous as to how bad it will get. Looking forward to seeing the opening ceremonies in the movie of the flaming costumes.

I clicked on related photos and that is way not how I picture Haymitch!! I'll have to do a brain switch now as I continue reading! Woody Harrelson will do a great job of playing that part though! Good to see what they all look like!

I can see where Katniss's outfit will be a big hit in fashion. That sounds like fun for you to dress like her to see the movie. Get a friend to braid your hair for you, that would look cool!!
