Read the Book, Now I Can’t Wait for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Movie

I got in late on The Hunger Games phenomenon. I thought it was just for teens. However, after watching the movies, I was hooked. I couldn’t wait until the next one.

When I had the opportunity to get my hand on the new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay novel, I jumped at it!

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Lions Gate. I received a book, products, and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

Once I started reading Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games), I couldn’t stop. I just love the heroin, Katniss. She never wanted to be in the Games, she didn’t ask to be a leader, she just wanted to keep her sister alive and does everything in her power to do it.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 comes out in theaters in a couple day on November 21st, I can’t wait to see it. Check out the trailer:

After reading the the novel, I’m even more excited to see the movie. If you are a fan, I encourage you to pick up a copy of the book and go see the movie. It’s such an incredible series that showcases a strong, female protagonist.

I like the novel because it gives you clearer understanding of what is going on in the mind of Katniss. I like getting a better glimpse of a character because it adds more meaning to her actions.  That being said, I can’t wait to see the story and characters from the book come to life on the big screen!


I can’t wait to see Jennifer Lawrence portray Katniss in the movie. Katniss is such a strong young woman, she isn’t afraid to use her power as the Mockingjay to keep her original goal alive, to keep her sister, Peeta alive. I also like that she is still human and vulnerable.  She has a realism that we can all connect with – not like the super hero movies where the good guy defeats all without working up a sweat.

Do you plan to see the movie? If so, who are you going with? Do you think it is just a teen movie or do you enjoy it as an adult?  I plan to catch it with a couple friends for a much-needed girls night out!
