Well, what are you???
Team Peeta or Team Gale?
I'm team Peeta all the way.
I mean, really, is there any doubt as to who the better choice is?
Now, looking at it from a writer's standpoint, you could argue that I'm pulling for him because Collins develops and stays with his character for the majority of the two books. Sure, we see Gale a bunch and we hear Katniss' thoughts on him, but Peeta is the one we're with most of the time and I gotta admit that I love that boy (man?). He is so faithful and loves Katniss, but not in a mushy or pining way. He is strong and tough and gets mad. I love in the second book when he lets Katniss sleep with him when she has bad dreams. He is just so good.
Besides, Gale becomes a whiny baby every time something is shown on TV or happens between Katniss and Peeta. It's not like he's fighting for her or really doing anything to show he cares. He almost expects her to be with him and when it doesn't feel like she is, he pouts.
I have the admit that I just finished Catching Fire.
Like five minutes ago (okay, maybe two).
I hadn't intended to read it just yet. I'm a dork and when I find a book that I like I hate for them to end. I sped through The Hunger Games in less than two days. Catching Fire was already out and while I wanted to reach for it and read it, I also wanted to save it a little longer.
So I did. I waited all summer.
And I planned to wait even long and still have Mockingjay to read to.
That is until my awesome amazing and plan killing book club chose Mockingjay as our next book. Curses!
Now I just flew through Catching Fire and plan to get Mockingjay on Tuesday. I'll probably fly through it, but on the bright side, I know I have some great reading in store for me!
What about you?
Have you pre-ordered it?
Are you going to any parties?
And most importantly...are you Team Peeta or Team Gale????
