Hello, fellow Saloners! Hope no one pulled a prank on you today!
I was sick for most of the week, and my son caught it as well. Luckily in his case it didn't get worse than coughing and a running little nose, none of us had fever and the worst we had was one sleepless night.

I finally went to see The Hunger Games on Thursday. It was an afternoon show so it was just my boyfriend and me and two teenagers who (so it seems) didn't mind my fangirlish outbursts of joy and eventual weeping. I loved the movie so much. I think Gary Ross did a fantastic job bringing the story to life. Much as I liked the book, I found that the movie moved me much more, in particular the depiction of District 12. During the first half of the movie I constantly had tears in my eyes. Instead of turning this post into a movie review, I'll just recommend you see the movie. Book to movie adaptation that I'm sure won't disappoint any of the fans of Suzanne Collins. Gary Ross added another layer to the dystopian atmosphere and I highly appreciate that.
|Around this scene I lost it and started crying.|
We're having relatives staying with us for Easter. The house is full and it's quite busy around here. I hope I'll manage to squeeze in some blogging after everyone's gone to bed.
Reading-wise I'm a bit obsessed with witchcraft lately. This week I read and reviewed Earth, book 1 in the Elementals series by Shauna Granger. It seems to be a (growing? ever-present?) trend in YA because I've also received several review request for books about witchcraft. No vampires lately. There are also several more I downloaded from Amazon, though they might be pushed down the tbr list until I finish 'Salem's Lot. It's impossible to put it down.
What was the highlight of your week? Happy Sunday!
