Of course I loved the other characters as well!! Peeta (Josh), Gale, (Liam), then we have Cinna, Effie, Haymitch, and of course, Rue. I thought all the characters and the games were done really well. I was a little worried how they would do it on the screen.
I cannot wait for Catching Fire! However, I was disappointed in Mockingjay, but that's alright. Suzanne Collins saw it how she wanted it to be done, and did it. I thought in the end of that book, it was almost like fate's vicious circle took control: Prim was always supposed to die at that time, or at least go into the Games, but Katniss needed to put a stop to it.
I just loved Suzanne's writing skills; I feel like anyone could understand the message she was trying to convey, and the words were simple, yet powerful. I am very happy she helped with the screenplay for the movie...you could definitely tell!
On another note, I am so happy that Lover Reborn came out today!!
This is part of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward, and is adult fiction. I absolutely love it! Sometimes it's nice to move away from reading all the children's books and YA novels. I need something sultry and different every once in a while.
Could I write it? HA! Maybe....not...no, I think I'll stick with children/YA novels, but it's my guilty pleasure and I think J.R. Ward is amazing! She's so cool and has a Golden Retriever so I like her even more!! You definitely feel the emotion she tries to convey in her stories and it feels like time is really moving in her books as it focuses on each individual character. This is the 10th book in the series. They are:
- Dark Lover
- Lover Eternal
- Lover Awakened (all time favorite)
- Lover Revealed
- Lover Unbound
- Lover Enshrined
- Lover Avenged
- Lover Mine
- Lover Unleashed
There is however, a short novella called Father Mine, which goes along with the characters of my favorite one, Lover Awakened. I recommend these books!!
My cousin told me about a book that is really good that is also for adults, which is called 50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James. I just downloaded on my kindle, but I know nothing about the book, other than apparently it's very popular right now! SO, I'll check it out when I'm finished with Lover Reborn.
Don't worry, I have been writing. Not as much as I would like to, but been doing outlines, free-writing, and other stuff with my characters which I think is definitely progress. Anyways, best wishes and happy writing!!
