Q: Do you read one book at a time or do you switch back and forth between two or more?

I definitely read only one book at a time because otherwise I confuse myself and I'd rather pay all my attention to one book at a time and I find I enjoy it more.

Book Review (67).

Silence (Hush, Hush #3)

The Hunger Games Movie Review.

Last night I attended the midnight screening of The Hunger Games and I was definitely blown away.
So while it's been quite a while since I've read the book I couldn't say how much was left out of the movie but what they put in was fantastic.
The action was great and the Capitol was done so well with the costuming of the citizens and the buildings were more than I could have imagined.
I loved Jennifer Lawrence in this movie and feel that they picked the perfect person to play the leading heroine Katniss.
As for Josh Hutcherson in the role of Peeta well he didn't do it for me at all, I had my doubts before the movie (everytime I see him I think of him as that kid from Zathura and R.V) whether that's why I don't know, but he is nothing like how I envisioned him while reading the book, don't get me wrong he's a good actor but I felt they could have picked somebody better.
Liam Hemsworth was another actor I didn't like in his role as Gale, and again not who I pictured as this character at all, (if I hadn't read the books already and had to pick who Katniss should end up with I don't think I'd want to choose either).
I loved Woody Harrelson as Haymitch I think they made a perfect choice, he plays comedy and Haymitch's drunkeness perfectly.

And I feel that they did a fantastic job with the rest of the casting.
So please you need to all go out and see this brilliant movie and let me know if you agree with my opinions on the actor's playing Peeta and Gale or whether it's just me.
I will definitely be seeing this a time or to before it's finished at the movie's.
Aside from the 2 casting choices I didn't agree with I still give this 10/10.
