When the Hunger Games movie first came out I dismissed it almost immediately based solely on nail polish sales. I never actually saw the trailer and had no idea what it was about, but at that time I was in the process of dying my hair back to blonde from black and found myself at Sally’s Beauty Supply daily to pick up more bleach, dye, and deep conditioners. For weeks before the film came out there was a display of “Limited Edition” Hunger Games nail polishes set up by the front door and registers. I didn’t pay much attention to it until the day after the movie opened when I saw these limited edition polishes, previously priced around $7 a bottle, were now in clearance bins marked at $1. From this single observation I determined the movie must have been garbage and promptly forgot about it until about a month ago when I saw it available for instant streaming on Netflix.
Upon reflection of my ludicrous basis for initially rejecting the film, I decided to give it a shot, and I have been obsessed with it ever since! Like most films based on books, I found I was missing some of the important details of the story so I downloaded the book from Amazon and now I can hardly put it down long enough to write this post! I’m glad I waited until I had a break from school to read this book or my 4.0 would certainly be in jeopardy! Now I’m wondering if I can finish the trilogy before classes start back up next Wednesday… Challenge accepted! If you need me I’ll be buried in my Kindle app for the next week 🙂
