BBC: The Hunger Games: Week 2!

So since I haven't gone to bed yet, it's still technically Thursday...right? This is the most fun I've had reading a book with the BBC. I hope you all like the prompts! Let me know if you have some next time and I will add them in. OR feel free to add yours onto your weekly post!

Lol. I hope everyone is loving the book! I have to say this book reminds me so much of a cross of two movies. The running games(it's older...I might be the only one who has seen it) and City of Ember. Anyone seen them? Am I nuts for thinking this?

Week 2 Prompts:

1. What do you think about Katniss getting an 11? Did they give her an 11 for her talent or simply to make her a target and teach her a lesson?

2. What do you think about Peeta confessing his love for Katniss during his interview!?! Is it real, or just for show?

3. At one point Katniss is trying to think of where the games are going to be. She thinks of a desert, swamp and a frigid wasteland. Where did you imagine it would be before you read it in the books? Do you think they picked the "right" place?

4. First thoughts when you found out Peeta was with the career kids?

5. I have a love for Rue from the start, What do you think about her "helping"(read: not killing when she could) Katniss? Should Katniss trust her?

6. "Favorite" part of the book so far?



My Answers

1. What do you think about Katniss getting an 11? Did they give her an 11 for her talent or simply to make her a target and teach her a lesson? I think a little of both. What she did was ballsy and they know it. BUT she has major talent.

2. What do you think about Peeta confessing his love for Katniss during his interview!?! Is it real, or just for show? Once again, both. I think he's always had a little thing for her but was pushed to confess it to the world.

3. At one point Katniss is trying to think of where the games are going to be. She thinks of a desert, swamp and a frigid wasteland. Where did you imagine it would be before you read it in the books? Do you think they picked the "right" place? I pictured a forest. Mostly because I compare this book to the running games. I think any of the other places would have been harder. A desert doesn't have places to hide and somewhere cold would pick them off too quickly.

4. First thoughts when you found out Peeta was with the career kids? I was crushed! It really made me think the in-love thing was really just an act.

5. I have a love for Rue from the start, What do you think about her "helping"(read: not killing when she could) Katniss? Should Katniss trust her? It's hard for me to answer when my answer is the question. Haha. I have loved Rue from the start. She looks up to Katniss and wants to be around her.

6. "Favorite" part of the book this 100 pages? By far when Haymitch sent Katniss the medicine.

I totally thought forest too. For some reason I knew trees were going to be involved!

I was so relieved when he sent her the medicine, made up for not sending water... but I know he was just trying to toughen her up by making her find water on her own. I was wondering how they were going to get there stuff from their sponsors.

I loved it when Katniss got the medicine too. She didn't feel so alone anymore and she knew that she had support where as in this game it sounds like you would really need it. Happy Reading!
