may the odds be ever in your favor

we’re saving up for the wedding so i can’t buy as many books as i wanted (or as many shoes). i guess i should say i can’t buy things as frequently as i wanted. it’s been months since Harry and i have been to the movies as waiting for the DVD is the more practical option. books nowadays are not as cheap as paper and even cost more than a movie ticket.
but after reading a couple of free chapters of The Hunger Games on Kobo, on a sleepless afternoon, i knew i had to get the book. no, not just the book but the series and it was a purchase i don’t have any regrets of. 
not only is the series well-written, the plot is very riveting, unexpected and at the same time, relational despite it being the set in the post-apocalyptic future. the characters are not sob stories, they’re actually people you want to root for. and Peeta Mellarck — oh don’t even get me started on how much i love how he is. then we have the the movie. it’s one of the best depictions from books other than Harry Potter (of course). i can’t wait for Catching Fire.

  1. Hullo Gizelle! Did you buy the set sold in NBS? Did you notice nga 'Collin' ang spelling sa Collins on the book's spine? Haha!


  2. My mom got hooked with this one too! She read the first book in less than 24hrs. Ahaka! Hahaha!

    And yeah, books, paper ones are too expensive nowadays but thank you book sale and the rest.


  3. i can relate to the obsession. i wana be katnis but shes too awesome i dont wanna replace her unlike I wanted to replace Bella coz I loved edward. =))


  4. gooshh i cant agree more. The next best thing after the Harry Potter series. I would have suggested u to download the ebooks though. I read all three of them on my PC/phone. Cost me nothing =) May the odds be ever in your favor!
