may the odds be ever in your favor


we're saving up for the wedding so i can't buy as many books as i wanted (or as many shoes). i guess i should say i can't buy things as frequently as i wanted. it's been months since Harry and i have been to the movies as waiting for the DVD is the more practical option. books nowadays are not as cheap as paper and even cost more than a movie ticket.

but after reading a couple of free chapters of The Hunger Games on Kobo, on a sleepless afternoon, i knew i had to get the book. no, not just the book but the series and it was a purchase i don't have any regrets of. 

not only is the series well-written, the plot is very riveting, unexpected and at the same time, relational despite it being the set in the post-apocalyptic future. the characters are not sob stories, they're actually people you want to root for. and Peeta Mellarck -- oh don't even get me started on how much i love how he is. then we have the the movie. it's one of the best depictions from books other than Harry Potter (of course). i can't wait for Catching Fire.

gooshh i cant agree more. The next best thing after the Harry Potter series. I would have suggested u to download the ebooks though. I read all three of them on my PC/phone. Cost me nothing =) May the odds be ever in your favor!
