Hunger Games New trailer

        As many of you know, The Hunger Games is my favourite series of books! I have ranted and raved about these books since the beginning. The very first day the book came out I bought it, and read it within the day. Every since that fated book I waited anxiously for the next year until the next one, and again until the third and finial book. Since I found out that the books were being made into a movie I was skeptical that they wouldn't do them justice, but when I look at this trailer I feel like this movie might actually be comparable to the books.
        The new trailer came out yesterday, I can't wait for this movie!

Mutual Feelings: Love and Reading

       The other day I had an epiphany of sorts. I was sitting at home, having just finished a really great book and was feeling kinda down, the depression hit a little when I realized that I would never have that great feeling of reading that book for the first time again and be completely engrossed at what would happen.
        Being a 22 year old female, I have had my fair share of heartbreak and dating experiences. I've learned that the feeling of one's heart breaking is a indescribable feeling that you can only understand if you too have gone through it. Anyways, it was during this day, having just finished this great book, that I realized something: the feeling of finishing a great book is comparable to the feeling of losing someone you care about or the feeling of suffering from a broken heart.
      I suppose in retro-spect it makes sense, the experience of reading a book is so personal and hits everyone differently: we all picture the novel in our head and through each page we slowly fall in love with the characters, the setting, and the writing.
       I remember the first time I finished the Hunger Games I was like a lost puppy, life had no meaning without Peeta and Katnis regularly in my life! I began to live vicariously through them and their romance in the novel and also they're lives in general. Similarly to falling out of love with someone, I would also dream of these newly finished books in my dreams, they occupied my daydreams and we're my favourite things to think about aimlessly.
     This is the great things about books though, unlike an ex, I aways have my books to turn back to when the other has put me through the ringer. Boys just don't stick around like my Peeta does!

Shoot Out and Personal Twitter

Hey guys! As I sit here procrastinating on latin studying, and I thought "Jeez, why don't I blog"! So thats what I'm doing I suppose... I have another blog that I had to write for my archaeological ethics class and I will add the link incase any of you guys want to see it. (http://manymindlessmusings.tumblr.com/)

On another note, I also have my personal twitter incase anyone would like to add me, warning: I tweet a lot of nonsense and tend to over share, follow at your own risk! My user name is @sVioletp

Just a taste of some of the pictures I tweet;



Waiting on Wednesday: Insurgent


Insurgent (Divergent #2)
 
Who: Veronica Roth

When: Too Long (March 1st 2012)




Why:
            This following summer I was in a reading rut, nothing I put in my hands was interesting enough to keep me intrigued enough to get passed the 80th page. The reason I am so excited to finally read Insurgent is mostly because; Divergent was the book that got me out of this rut!  I loved Divergent, dystopian novels have always been my favorite genre. YA dystopias usually have a strong female lead and Divergent is no different.  Can’t wait for this one!
