werepuppyblack: (books)
Decided to just answer every single question of the book meme I posted an entry back. I'll leave that up so that the questions are there for people if they want it. I've put the majority of questions under a cut because this is LONG, people. There's 50 questions. So, get a cup of tea and let's get started!

1. What is your favourite book and/or book series of all time? This is actually a really hard question to answer because so many come to mind at once. Uh. I guess if I had to pick just one, I'd go with Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. No matter how many times I read that, I always find something new to laugh at, something new to amaze me, and just always have the same level of enjoyment in reading the story.

Looking at Hunger Games fans on my f'list, as I'm really getting confused. 

Was... Did.... Okay, latest news is Jennifer Lawrence is pretty much our Katniss (sort of annoys me only because I had heard Hailee Steinfeld was up for the role and she's a truly enjoyable actress) ...but there seems to be a lot of outrage. Something about a casting call limiting the actresses or something? Can anyone explain wth is going on?
Also: Hunter Parrish as Peeta? MUCH preferable to other names I've heard

So I finally finished The Hunger Games after getting them over Christmas and having them sit on my shelf. Managed to get through the whole trilogy within about a week; the writing is captivating. So this is just my little... overview of it all, I guess. There be spoilers, but I'll LJ cut it, so you don't have to read further if you don't want to.

Told you there would be a cut )

But yes, in short I liked it. Definitely one to be re-read and kept on the shelf.
