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.

Terms of Endearment

Have you ever been reading a book, moving along quite nicely, and then--bam--a character whips out a particular term of endearment that just yanks you right out of the story? It happened to me recently, and I'm sad to say I couldn't recover. I did try. But she just kept using that term and I . . . I had to get the hell out of Dodge. Buh-bye, story. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. I'm not saying this is the norm (thank goodness). I can put up with a certain amount of treacly back and forth when it comes to the exchange of terms of endearment, especially if they fit the characters, their background, culture, the tenor of their relationship, etc. And the history of these terms at home and from around the world is often fascinating (at times hilarious). But there comes a point where I can't see past the cheese and/or weird anymore and I do not want to be with these people any longer. Shallow? Perhaps. But it's a very individual thing, isn't it?

Interview with Sara Creasy + Children of Scarabaeus Giveaway!

Today is the release day for Sara Creasy's Children of Scarabaeus--the second book in her wonderful Scarabaeus duology. I'm delighted to be celebrating release day with an interview with Ms. Creasy. I picked up Song of Scarabaeusa couple of weeks ago, fell immediately in love, and set about getting my hands on an ARC ofthe sequel as quickly as possible (you can read my reviews here and here). This is the kind of science fiction I love--character-driven and exciting, set against the background of a fully developed and eerily fascinating world. If you haven't had a chance to pick up these books, now is the perfect time. Please welcome Sara Creasy!  First things first: The Covers. I am kind of a fan of Chris McGrath’s covers, and I love the little touches on these two that make them unique to Edie & Finn’s story. Did you have any input on the covers and what was your reaction upon seeing the first one? Isn’t his work amazing? As soon as I found out he was doing my SONG OF S…
