Firstly, winners! Because I was lazy and didn't do winner announcement posts:
Black City ARC:
Sarah from saz101
Nightshade trilogy by Andrea Cremer:
Yay, congrats ladies! I've already contacted them both. I hope to have some more droolworthy giveaways coming your way next month!
Two words can sum up my entire thoughts on the movie: JENNIFER LAWRENCE! My god, that girl is incredible. You can all battle it out with your Team Peeta, Team Gale, Team Haymitch or Team Buttercup nonsense... but I have my Team Katniss tattoo inked proudly on my forehead.. The reaping scene in particular broke my heart :(
I thought everything in District 12 and the Capitol was absolute PERFECTION. I did have a few minor issues with things during the actual games, but overall, I absolutely loved it. It's probably my favourite book to movie adaptation ever. Is it time for the dvd to be released yet?!
And to end on the post-with-no-real-meaning - have you guys realised just how many amazing sequels are coming out this year? Well, probably, since you're all avid readers, but seriously... THERE ARE SO MANY AMAZING SEQUELS COMING OUT THIS YEAR. Which am I most excited for?
And those yet to be graced with orgasmic covers... Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor, Losing Lila by Sarah Alderson, Dearly Beloved by Lia Habel, Patriot by Marie Lu, Unwholly by Neal Shusterman, Blood Storm by Rhiannon Hart.
Their predecessors were all BRILLIANT and became some of my favourite reads of 2011 and 2012. Many, like Bloodlines and Daughter of Smoke and Bone left us on cliffhangers that made us rip every strand of hair from our heads, while others offered a taste of what's to come or were just so damn good that the idea of not returning to the characters and their world again left us with a deep ache in our hearts (I'm looking at you, Brigid Kemmerer). And of course, there's Unwind, which fans have been waiting on a sequel for HOW many years now?! Finally, 2012 is the year!
Which sequels are you jumping up and down in giddy delight to read? And what did you think of The Hunger Games? And what colour underwear are you wearing today? Might aswell ask while we're playing 20 Questions...
