I die. (again)

I discovered The Hunger Games series a year or so ago and I absolutely love it. Yes, when you think about the plot (which includes kids being forced into an arena to kill each other) it sounds horrific, but the books are soooo good. 

As is the current trend with popular book series, The Hunger Games is being made into a movie. Yay! Please tell me that you already knew that. If you didn't, get out from under your rock please. Anyway, I've been following the casting choices and I must say, I loooove who was cast. Here are the main characters:

Here are the main three- Peeta, Katniss, and Gale. 

Woody Harrelson as Haymitch. Love it! I had always pictured Jeff Bridges as Haymitch, but I think that Woody will do a great job as a drunk, sarcastic mentor. 

Stanley Tucci as Caesar Flickerman. This makes me happy, as I love Stanley in everything that he does. Every movie that I've seen him in he absolutely nails it. He's hilarious and I kind of wish that he was my uncle or something. Uncle Stan. I like it.

There have been about 30 other people cast, but I'm no where near motivated enough to discuss even half of that. If you're curious check out imdb. 


My friend Melissa is an amazing artist and graphic designer. She recently opened an Etsy shop called Kathryn Divine. She has prints that look great in a child's room, as well as canvases and decor that would look beautiful in any home.Take a look!

I enjoyed the Hunger Games series. Very touching story. And I had no idea they were making a movie out of it, haha. I must be behind the times. How fun!! And I really like the casting.
