I am all that I said before. 'K I have another: beg, plead, persue, annoy, persuade your sibblings to read HG.
...eveywhere you turn, you see the words "hunger", "games", and the mockingjay...(partly because you are so obsessed with them, you have surrounded yourself with HG themed things...)

toukokuu 23, 2010, 11:09pm

Some of these are off Scholastic blogs, and some I just thought of while copy/pasting.
...August seems like a really long time away from now.
...You are either team Peeta or Gale.
...Whenever you see the word "Uprising" or "rebellion" you think immediately of THG. start having dreams about THG.'ve bought a Hunger Games T-Shirt. Or want one very,very badly.'ve talked about this book so much you've convinced some of your friends to read it. can name at least 5 Hunger Games fansites.
...your notebooks are full of THG doodles. know what District you're from. are the proud owner of a mockinjay pin. make references to THG in daily conversations. are constantly comparing people you know with THG characters.
...anytime you see the movie title District 9 or District 12 you think of THG. have random debates about the third book with your best friend everyday.
..when you can't go to sleep because you're thinking about THG.'re having a normal conversation with someone, and THG always winds up in it. are TOTALLY OBSESSED, AND PROUD OF IT!!
...if you read a book and the character has black hair, you immediately go "KATNISS!!!!"
...You accidentally call people Peeta, Katniss, or Gale (it's pretty embarrassing XD) are a member on 3 fansites for THG. wear fingerless gloves.
...randomly state quotes from THG and CF.
...are over-protective of your copies of the book. make all your friends read it.
...ur constantly looking at how many more days (days not months) till Mockingjay. so want to learn archery.
...reading HG or CF is a form of relaxation for you. wish Peeta and/or Gale and/or Katniss were real. actually look up the hunger games on youtube/google/wikipedia/or anything else actually complete the unfinished sentence: You know when your obsessed with the hunger games when... beg your mom to get you CF right after you read THG. find out your the first one in your class to finish your assignment for THG. finish reading CF before you teacher even started. finish reading THG or CF in less than a week put together.
...your mom/siblings tell you you're obsessed. made 10 or more of these comments.
...the smartest kid in your class is asking you what happens next.'ve decided not to wear make-up or anything, 'cause Katniss doesn't like it. are going through your day and randomly think of a quote from the book.
...someone reads The Hunger Games and says its a bad book, you hate them for life. Bookmark all your favourite Fan Fictions. see a bird you think of a Mockingjay. are reading these lists of things that you do when your obsessed.
...your desktop picture on your computer is something related to THG. (Mine is the mockingjay pin).'re counting down till Mockingjay is released, when no one else really cares. have read the book 5 times have already made plans to see the movie would rip the binding apart if Katniss did not end up with Gale. :D spend hours watching trailors and fan made casts have dreams about the book go on the message board all the time have fights with people about Team Gale or Team Peeta have memorized the whole book. know every persons name by heart and can state what every district does or makes. are grounded from reading it. think about it before you go to bed.'ve already decided who the cast should be. see a situation and liken it to the THG some how. think of your worst enemy and President Snow pops into your head. decided who you are going to marry. Peeta or Gale. your free time the only thing you talk and think about is THG.'ve already decided if you were in the Hunger Games, what your strategy would be.
...when you see a round clock you think of CF or Wiress.'re proud that you look similar to that of Katniss's discription: (brown eyes, olive skin, black hair that's long and you keep in a braid...this one is mine, I just thought of it.) forced/persuaded your sister and your friend to read it. :D
...your friend showed you the book, and within the first 2 pages, you fell in love with the book. Now,jredprada924, who does that sound like??

There are more, but its late, and I have to go to bed. Adios.
oh, and one more. stay up until 11 pm, writing the list for You know you're addicted to the Hunger Games series when...

...your mom wakes up in the middle of the night just to ask "why are you still awake" when its obvious your reading CF
...your mom heads toward her room when she mumbles "that girl is crazy" you say "i heard that" she says "i know" think you'll be buried with all 3 books with you think you'll die of shock on how Mockingjay will end wonder how Gale is gonna end up like have to be the first to get your hands on Mockingjay think about how tuching Rue's lullaby is wonder what's goona happen to Cinna after the peacemakers attacked him.... ask everyone you know if they have read it

toukokuu 25, 2010, 8:47pm

haha nice!

toukokuu 26, 2010, 4:56pm


kesäkuu 5, 2010, 6:13pm

3. You start calling North America Panem
4.You start calling your state District 12
5. You have the urge to go hunt

Keep the list going, everyone!

kesäkuu 6, 2010, 5:41pm

Viestin kirjoittaja on poistanut viestin.

kesäkuu 7, 2010, 3:07pm

My List countinued....
7. When a Twilight fanatic asks you Team Edward or Team Jacob, you reply by asking them Team Peeta or Team Gale (Team Gale all the way!)

kesäkuu 8, 2010, 4:45pm


kesäkuu 8, 2010, 9:03pm

Team Peeetttaaa!!

kesäkuu 12, 2010, 9:32pm


kesäkuu 13, 2010, 3:02pm

Team P-P-Peetttaaa!
Haha...We could go back and forth like this all day.

kesäkuu 13, 2010, 4:20pm

GALE ALL THE WAY! Peeta is a loser. He didn't care about the games for a while. And, I really don't think he would've "loved" Katniss if The Hunger Games never happened. Where, Gale and Katniss, whether they know it or not, have always been in love.

kesäkuu 13, 2010, 10:17pm

Peeta always had a little "thing" for Katniss. Remember when he gave the bread to her.

kesäkuu 14, 2010, 3:37pm

*sighs* You all forget, Peeta is in love with Katniss's voice and he says so himself. In the book. When he's like, I heard you sing, and I fell in love with you. wth?
And if he really loved Katniss, he wouldn't get mad at her and stuff when he found out she was pretending.

>23 Mariah7:: Yeah, we could go on like this all day. Allll day.

Team GALE!!

kesäkuu 14, 2010, 7:18pm

I dont remember that part.

I still think Team Peeta! =)

kesäkuu 15, 2010, 11:55pm

*sighs* seems I am having the same argument as that in the other post. See "Gale or Peeta". *sigh*

kesäkuu 17, 2010, 9:42pm

A couple is if two people both love each other. Applys to KatnissxGale, not KatnissxPeeta.
P.S. Let's start adding to the list again.

kesäkuu 17, 2010, 9:48pm

>29 BookLover287:.
a) Good one!
b) Good idea. have a countdown on your profile page. (Check mine!)

heinäkuu 4, 2010, 12:45pm

I know how to FIND an addict.
10. In class, you are assigned to read THG, and you say to another addict that this will be like eating candy.

heinäkuu 4, 2010, 5:25pm

Tru, tru. That's sooo true.
Have u ever had to read HG in class? I wish I did. That would be sooo much fum.
Rather read that then Romeo and Juliet.

heinäkuu 5, 2010, 8:50am

No, but I almost got to. If I was a couple years odler, it would have been required summer reading.

heinäkuu 5, 2010, 5:22pm

HG would have been required summer reading if u were a few years older??? In what grade? Where do u live?? I'm going to come move there.
Not that it would make a difference. But a school where the HG is required summer reading sounds like a nice place.

Well, u'll get to read it when u r older, right? Have fun then.
