In honor of Mockingjay Part 2 coming out this past weekend (if you haven't seen it yet, stop what you're doing immediately and go see it now. Like, right now. But go about 15 minutes late, because those previews were hella freaky), I've been obsessing over all of my favorite parts of the Hunger Games! I always forget how much I love the little things about it in the middle of all the suckyness that's happening (also J-Law is epic). I tend to focus on just how much suck there is, because there is a lot, a lot of suck in these books (and a series case of second book-itis if you know what I mean).
My Top 5 Favorite Hunger Games Moments
I love the moment in Mockingjay where the squad team is all hiding out Tigris's basement and Katniss is pretending to be asleep while Gale and Peeta are having a conversation about her. Gale and Peeta are having a little heart to heart, and neither of them is going to do a thing about the fact that the both of them are in love with her, just basically let her eenie-meenie-miny-moe. But when Gale says, "Katniss will pick whoever she thinks she can't survive without", I just love how self righteous she gets; she's all I can survive without either of you thank you very much. I just loved it.
How about the badass moment from the first book where she's the last tribute and no one is paying any attention to her, so she shoots the freaking apple out of the mouth of their roasted pig's mouth? That'll get their attention girl. You go, Glen Coco.
"You love me, real or not real." "Real."
Effie's epic quote of "That is mahogany!" This is mostly memorable in the movie, but I don't care. It's still a favorite moment.
This song gives me goose bumps every single time. I seriously can't even listen to it without getting them. It's. So. Good. (Not the radio version, though. Don't go over to the dark side).
What are your favorites?? Have you seen it yet?
