And may the odds be ever in your favor!
So I recently read the entire Hunger Games series in two and half days. I am addicted. I find myself absentmindedly dressing like the series’ lead character, Katniss. I’m counting down the days until March 23rd. I’m dying for more Hunger Games anything. I’m trying to hunt down an affordable Mockingjay pin. Anyway, for those who don’t know, this is a summary of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.
Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before — and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
Amazing, right? If you haven’t read them, be sure to. So now to the nail polish!
This collection of 12 new nail polish shades is inspired exclusively by one distinct setting in The Hunger Games – the Capitol of the nation of Panem. Awash in lavish fashion, food, and entertainment, Capitol citizens enjoy extreme cosmetics and body modifications, bold wigs, and outlandish costumes.
