In the #CatchingFire Race, I’m Team GALE
It’s no secret that I love young adult (YA) books. Right now, I think they’re the best stuff out there. I’ll choose a YA over adult anytime. Picture books trump all, however, but that’s another post.
I’m sure many of you are as excited as I am to FINALLY FINALLY watch the much anticipated followup to The Hunger Games! While many of you were tucked in your jim jams, my super secret movie crew and I braved the crowds and fought our way into opening night showing: on a school night!
I will not provide any spoilers but I will say this: IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT. WORTH IT. Even though I’m on my 65th cup of coffee right now, because I stayed up way past my bedtime, Hollywood delivered. To be sure, there were some changes from the book (as always) but I felt that Hollywood kept the spirit of the story alive.
Even now more than ever, I am Team Gale. Regardless of what you think of Peeta (he is a nice boy. too nice), Gale is THE MAN. No -matter that is brother is THOR. Gale is a man’s man who protects Katniss’ family even when most men would have been like “what the what?” after seeing his woman kiss another man on the big screen. Would someone please send GALE into the Hunger Games so we can get it done right?
Naturally, I’ve reviewed this series. Check out my other posts:

- Discussion of Hunger Games and ethnicity (Spoilers)
- I turned my friends into Tributes in the Blogger Games
- I enjoy a parody from my friends at Papercutz: The Hunger Pains
As you can see, I’m crazy about the series. Or just crazy! I’d love to hear what team you’re on or your thoughts on anything Hunger Games!
