The Hunger Games Sneak Peeks

So while the EW cover featuring Gale and Peeta left me . . . underwhelmed. This still here and this one over here have me, well, smiling pretty big. I really cannot wait to see it.

  1. Oh, those two pictures are definitely much better than the cover shot, which I was underwhelmed by too.

  2. Okay...maybe there are possibilities here.

  3. You have, perhaps, just single-handedly saved these movies for me.

  4. I agree with Janssen. I've been very cautiously optimistic that they won't ruin the story. Now I'm beginning to be excited about the movie. Thanks for sharing!!

  5. Marg, aren't they? Personally, I'd have led with one of these...

    Kim, this is what I'm thinking.

    Janssen, hehe. You make me smile. I seriously did get a tingly feeling when I saw these two. Like somehow it might all be all right.

    Caitlin, I know what you mean. This is encouraging.

  6. I LOVE the picture of Peeta in front of the bakery. I was skeptical when he was first announced as the actor cast as Peeta, but this one picture might have convinced me...Yay Peeta!

  7. Oh I really hope they don't ruin the books!!! I'll be watching the movie for sure, with high hopes.

  8. Kristi, no one can ruin the book. The books are on the shelves.

    The amount of hand-wringing going on about this adaptation is ridiculous. I remember when they posted the picture of Katniss, people were online complaining that her BRAID wasn't long enough! Sheesh.

    I think everything looks great. THough, those are awful nice boots for a starving coal miner's daughter. Ah, Hollywood.

  9. 100% agree with every word.

  10. I love the picture of Katniss and Gale! The guy playing Peeta still doesn't do much for me, but then, neither did Peeta in the books, so I shouldn't expect him to. :-D

  11. Why does it not surprise me that Stanley Tucci is in this movie? Huh.

  12. Still and will always be TEAM GALE!!!

  13. I know when I read my magazine and I saw the pics of Peeta inside it was like falling in love with him all over again, LOL. I was soo skeptical of the casting, but I do like Josh so much so I'm hoping that it will all work out.

    And also hoping Liam works out as Gale but I think he will!

  14. Joanna, so do I! Gave me chills.

    Kristi, I can't wait to see it.

    Diana, that is utterly ridiculous. These big adaptations do seem to provide people the perfect opportunity to FRET. These pics got me uberexcited, though. Lol about the boots.

    Antoinette, :)

    Emily, lol. Yeah, big Team Gale fan over here as well. And that pic of them looks like them. Which makes me happy.

    Liza, I know. The dude's in everything! But I like him, so it's ok.

    Rosey, hehe. Ah, Gale...

    Amy, *grin*. I did think of you first after seeing the pic of him in front of the bakery.

Bibliocrack Review | Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater

I haven't wanted to talk about this. With  anyone.  But I think I probably need to. That like Georgina, I need to use my words to break the curse. I think that like Sam, I need to believe in my cure. So I'm going to talk about it here, and maybe you can help. Since pandemic type things got real in my neck of the woods, I haven't been able to read. I haven't been able to  reread . This has (and I am not exaggerating) never happened to me before  in my life.  I know it happens frequently to most everyone. And I have certainly always been a mood reader. It's not in any way uncommon for me to drift from book to book, from shelf to shelf in my library, until I land upon the right thing. But that drifting tends to occur over the course of a few hours. Not ever does it occur over the course of a few days or, God forbid, weeks.  I feel like I'm losing my mind. And, yes, I am fully aware of where this problem likely rates on the triviality scale in the current scheme of

Review | The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion, Vols. 1 & 2 by Beth Brower

I feel a bit giddy finally talking to you all about this series. If you'll remember, I fell madly in love with The Q  when it came out a few years ago. Now, Beth Brower is writing The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion — a series of novellas set in London in 1883. Each volume is an excerpt from the incorrigible Emma's journals, and the first two volumes are already available with the third on the way soon. I think they'd make rather perfect pandemic reading. Humorous and charming down to their bones, they're just what the doctor ordered to lift your spirits in this uncertain time that just proves to be too much some days. If you're experiencing one of those days, I suggest giving Volume 1   a go (it's only 99 cents on Kindle, $4.99 for a trade paperback copy). It will surprise exactly none of you that I own print and digital editions of both volumes.  Miss Emma M. Lion has waited long enough. Come hell or high water (and really, given her track record,  both a

Bibliocrack Review | Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

Since I thought I'd start with the two most egregious reviewing gaps, you get Wayward Son next. I hope this is agreeable to all and sundry. And let's just agree not to pull any punches, shall we? I'll start by admitting that this book wrecked my life. To be clear, I am not complaining. It's just that it had been a long time, yeah? A long time since  Carry On came out. Just such a very long time since I'd been in the company of these two. And their crew. And I thought I was ready. Don't I always? Must remember to learn from past mistakes. But more than that, I wasn't thinking about the fact that of course Rainbow Rowell would create nothing less than the sequel that would naturally follow the events at the end of Carry On. Which is to say a sequel that would hurt . Because everything about what happened to Simon Snow from the beginning of his life to his graduation from Watford was designed to damage. With the shining exceptions of Penny and Baz. And so th
