Review: Fallen by Lauren Kate (TBR Challenge #7)

First Impression of The Hunger Games Movie

First Impression of The Hunger Games Movie

Okay, as this is a book blog, and The Hunger Games movie is based on the book, I feel I can go ahead and give my opinion on the movie.  I’m not going to make a big deal about how the book is always better than the movie, because that just goes without saying.  First,… Read more »
