Welcome to another edition of The Teen Menu. Due to deadlines, I didn't have time to review any books this month. However, there's a good bit of news as well as my impressions of The Hunger Games movie. In a word, awesome.
So, show of hands -- how many of you went to see The Hunger Games? Did you go opening night? Opening weekend? Did you go in costume? And what did you think? Personally, I went the Sunday of opening weekend with friends and I loved the movie. I thought they did an excellent job of casting all the roles. I know there were some people who thought they'd skipped important parts, but here's the thing -- movies and books are not the same thing. It is impossible to put everything from a book into a movie. They are different animals. And that's why Game of Thrones is a TV series on HBO and not a movie. And as if I wasn't in swoon enough with Katniss & Peeta before... By the way, I'm a native of Kentucky, so I love that both Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson are from Kentucky, Josh not far from where my husband grew up.
