Okay, confession time. I didn’t finish a single book during November & that’s why it has taken me so long to post a monthly wrap up. My reading challenge on Goodreads is looking kinda bad at the moment… Oops…
As you may or may not know The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 premiered in November & my plan was to reread the book to refresh my memory. Instead of actually reading the book I ended up listening to The Katniss Chronicles. The Katniss Chronicles is an audio drama adaptation of all three Hunger Games books (1 chapter in the book = 1 episode of the Katniss Chronicles). Not only do they adapt what happens from Katniss’ point of view, they also “show” what’s happening in The Capitol at the same time. At the moment I am a few chapters through Mockingjay. I’m not going to spoil too much but I really recommend that you start listening to it. & if you haven’t already you should go watch Mockingjay Part 1. Hands down the best movie of 2014 so far (in my opinion)!
What is better than Harry Potter, Christmas, a read-a-thon & a movie marathon? Can you guess? A Harry Potter reading & movie marathon during the month of Christmas! Confused? I’m going to break it down for you. Basically, a bunch of bookworms & Potterheads (what Harry Potter fans calls themselves) is going to try to read & watch all thing everything Harry Potter during December. I’m not going to go into full details about this but if you’re interested in participating, you should check out this video right here.
