Catching Up on The Hunger Games

A few weeks ago I was surfing through Netflix and found that they had finally added Catching Fire to their online library.Catching-Fire_poster

I was psyched.

I hadn’t been able to see Catching Fire last year when it hit the theaters and after it came out on DVD, well, I didn’t really want to spend the money on the movie just yet, in case I didn’t like it all that much.  Of course, I loved it even more than the first movie, but since it’s on Netflix (for now) I’ll hold off of purchasing the movie.

So I saw that about three weeks before Mockingjay was set to hit the big screen.  Boy, was I anxious to see what happens next in the series.

This would be a great time to mention that I have not read the books.  I want to.  I actually meant to before I saw any Hunger Games films, however, when the first one came out my friend was in town and wanted me to go with him.  I had to because he was only in town for one day, so I saw the movie and just never got around to reading the books.

Yesterday I went and saw Mockingjay Part 1.  It was pretty epic in my opinion, but I’m once again left on a cliffhanger with wanting to know what happens next and how the entire story ends.  Although, I can already tell that Catching Fire is my favorite of the 1416593028255series, at least in movie form.

To say that I’m going to wait until Mockingjay Part 2 is released to see how the series ends… well, I can’t say that I will.  Since it will probably be a year (or at least 7-8 months) before its release I’ll probably end up reading the series within the next 2-3 months.  Yes, I am impatient.  In fact, if I didn’t have a feeling I’m getting a Barnes & Noble gift card for Christmas, I’d get the books on my Nook right now and read them as soon as finals are over.

But hey, I’ve made it this far.  I think I can hold off a few more weeks until after Christmas to start reading the books.

I just cannot wait a whole year for Mockingjay Part 2!

Oh, and did I mention that Mockingjay Part 1 was pretty epic?
