The Hunger Games

Elizabeth Banks as the character Effie Trinket

Sorry, that's my tum tum! Is it lunchtime yet? LOL This bowl of oatmeal is just not cutting it. HaHaHa

I desperately need to talk about another "hunger" today.

The movie 'The Hunger Games' (US) (UK) comes out March 23, 2012. Everyone excited? Personally, I can't wait for The Dark Knight Rises. Christian Bale! LOL But hey Lenny Kravitz is in this movie. Eye candy MUCH! LOL

I swear, I'm so behind on this trend. So I need all the The Hunger Games experts to step up and give me the scoop. This fashionista needs HELP! :)

I hope I'm not too late. I did a little research this weekend and this is what I found. 

My TWO questions are in red. Thanks :)

The Hunger Games movie is based on THREE (3) Suzanne Collins novels: The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay. Do I need to read ALL 3 for this movie? (source)

This is the trailer. Will this be the ONLY movie for the books? or Will there be 3 separate movies? You know how they like to divide movies up! Part 1...Part 2...Part 3! LOL What's the word?

I haven't read one page (LOL), but I know two characters I want to see: 
Effie (Elizabeth Banks) and Cinna (Lenny Kravitz).

China Glaze is coming out with a China Glaze "Colours From The Capital" nail polish collection March 1st according to All Lacquered Up and The Hob. BUT, you can PRE-ORDER them NOW on Amazing Beauty. $3.50 each or $39.95 for the entire collection.

The polish names coincide with the specialties of each district.

Luxe and Lush – District 1 (Luxury)   
Stone Cold – District 2 (Masonry)
Riveting – District 3 (Technology)
Hook and Line – District 4 (Fishing)
Electrify – District 5 (Power)
Fast Track – District 6 (Transportation)
Mahogany Magic – District 7 (Lumber)
Dress Me Up – District 8 (Textiles)
Harvest Moon – District 9 (Grain)
Foie Gras – District 10 (Livestock)
Agro – District 11 (Agriculture)
Smoke and Ashes – District 12 (Mining)

So am I up to date? Missing anything? Let me know your thoughts on the upcoming Hunger Games Movie. Have a Great Monday! 

My Monday Sweet Treats will be featured Wednesday!

  6. I bought these books for my sister for Christmas and she's been raving about the series. Maybe I need to borrow them when she's done!

  7. I'm in the same boat as you Kim! I've never read any of them, but the movie looks great, so I need to get a move on and read these! And Elizabeth Banks character looks awesome!

  8. i dont know about hanger games, but i wish i could try kim

  9. I read all three books on someone's recommendation last year and they were amazing... totally could not put them down - Highly recommend!

    Hope you have a fantastic week!

  10. Oooh, I can't wait for this movie!! You only need read the first book for the movie and I'm crossing my fingers that they'll turn all three of the books into movies!

    I can't wait to try those polishes!I really like "riveting," "agro" and "foie gras."

  11. eek! so excited i actually JUST downloaded this book last week! i haven't started yet but i'm eager to start reading it! i think it's only the first book!

  12. I don't know much about these books but all the hype and promotions around it have me quite intrigued. That is quite a different look for Elizabeth Banks.

  13. Not read any of these books but would love to see the movie.

  14. nice post! i like the china glaze 'smoke and ashes':)

  15. i cannot wait for the hunger games (or the dark knight). definitely read them. you'll have them done in no time. they are great books.

  16. I haven't even read these books, thanks for the update on the movie. I can't believe that's Elizabeth Banks, she looks pretty amazing! Had no idea Lenny Kravitz was acting, now I'd really want to see that!
    I like the glaze colours, they are so unusual. Not shades that are we commonly see, I like Fast Track and Smoke & Ashes

  17. I've heard about it but wasn't really up to date about it!! I'll have look into it a little more! And the makeup on the China Glaze ad is so crazy (and amazing)!

  18. Hey sugar muffin!!!! I freaken love the China Glaze colors for the capitol colours line!!! Those are my kind of colors!!

  19. i have never used china glaze but heard so many good things about it anyway nice post lots of love

    follow back please

  20. I can't wait for the movie! The books were amazing.

  21. Love the sound of that movie! We best start reading b/c I vote that we need to read all 3 before we watch the move. hahaha And I looovveee her makeup!!

    P.S. Oatmeal doesn't really cut it for me either :)

  22. i will catch the movie..but i somehow wasn't too keen on reading the books..i read a lot and somehow this is not up my alley..what the hey i may go ahead and read it..i did not recognise elizabeth banks in the 1st photo!..isn't it hard to believe that lenny isn't 35!:P

  23. I've never read these either even though everyone tells me I'm crazy not to. Keep us posted if you decide to read them. Also - we share a love for Lenny Kravitz. I will love that man until my heart stops beating.

  24. Sooooooooooooo excited for this movie...what fabulous couture, yes? You should read the books...they are some of the best i've read lately!

    <3 Cambria

  25. I still need to read the books! I'm so behind! I love the colors they choose though!

  26. I think, based on the trailer, it's just the first book. I recommend them, Kim. They're super fast to read and quite engaging, even for someone as picky and judgmental as me (and believe me, I have some issues with these books, but for brain candy, they're quite good)

  27. I must be living on a different planet... I'm confused right now, but I do like the nail varnish colours ;-) Have a lovely week, Love from London xo

  28. Hi Kim,

    I love the new look on your blog!!! so cool!!!

    love K

  29. Girl...I haven't read any of the Hunger Games books either (had never heard of them until about a month ago). But you need to go here: for all things Hunger Games. Lauren is actually one of my favorite bloggers (I think you'll love her) but she is OBSESSED with Hunger Games so she's been doing lots of posts lately. She's also very sweet & would probably be very open to answering any Hunger Games questions for you.

    Check it out! :o)

  30. Exciting! I have to find out more about the Hunger Games--never heard of it, but now I'm curious!

    xo Mary Jo

  31. I've only heard of the Hunger Games through people raving about it on their blogs, I am very intrigued to find out more about it, so thank you for sharing the trailer! I can't want for The Dark Knight Rises, Christian Bale is gorgeous. xo

  32. You just need to read the first book before the movie comes out in March, but trust me, you'll dive right into the second one! I'm a new follower, follow me back if you'd like!


  33. I love you blog and keep track of it often. I thought I would let you know that I've just given your the Liebster blog award. You can see it here It's for bloggers with under 200 memmbers (I went on your GFC count). Keep up the fantastic work.

    xx Mandi

  34. I love movies and this looks great to me. Lenny Kravits is one of my favorite musicians.I´ll look for the books too. Kisses from

  35. Excited about this movie also. The book were good so hope the movie is just as good!

    Thanks for sharing. And those nail colors look awesome.

  36. I can't wait until this comes out, I have some exciting news I've been dying to share...and I'm so tempted to share it, but I must wait...*sigh*

    You don't need to read all three books, It's following the first book. They are making a movie per book. It's geared towards a younger audience, but I thinks it's enjoyable, but I may be biased.

  37. I am on the same page I wonder if I should read it before I watch the movie! It looks like a really interesting movie!

    <3 Kelly

  38. I'm still reading Catching Fire - IT's AWESOME.

    I think you should totally read the book because I just wonder how the movie will be like :3

  39. girl, i have no clue!! i'm even more behind than you...haven't been to an (adult) movie in years. the book covers do look familiar, though, and based on a few comments above, it sounds like a great reads. will add this to my queue!


  40. i am def more excited for the Dark Knight!!! but the China Glaze collection for this movie is sooo pretty

  41. Wow, I SO did not recognize Elizabeth Banks! I don't know what the Hunger Games are all about either but I know that people are excited about it.

  42. I just got the book yesterday, and i'm already up to the games, so I know it will be a quick read. So far I'm enjoying it and those china glaze colors are awesome - i totally want riveting!

    Chic on the Cheap

  43. WOW! This is very interesting. I love the make up and nail polish. I can't wait till this comes out!


  44. I haven't read the book but I will probably see the movie. I love the editorial- so whimsical!

  45. What style love it!

  46. After seeing the trailer I can't wait to see the film. I need to read the books soon!
    I love the polish colors, I want to try the Luxe and Lush.

  47. I'm right there with you - aka behind! haha. I haven't read these yet and I'm still on the fence about them. I'm not a series reader generally. I do love those polishes though, the Luxe and Lush looks so fun for spring!

  48. i plowed through all 3 books in a matter of 5 days. yeah, but that's because i enjoy reading - plus it was a pretty good trilogy.

    didn't know they had cosmetics, etc marketed under it. interesting, ahah. and kinda ironic! if you ever get to reading the book/s or see the movie, you'll get what i mean. with the capitol and all :)

    anyways, HI! eheh.

  49. I am SO excited for the movie. I loved the books. My husband just rolled his eyes that there is a nail polish color for each district. lol.

  50. This sounds like a great movie! =)

  51. I am so behind the times when it comes to pulp fiction, and especially when it's fantasy based. I've heard so much about The Hunger Games, but I haven't gotten past page one. I just can't get into anything that involves alterna reality, I don't know why. I could definitely get into the China Glaze nailpolishes based on the book, though, the warm neutral shades are perfect for everyday wear. Oh, and that glitzy orange? Amazing!

  52. The trailer looks amazing. Makes you want to see the movie :)

  53. Those colors and the coordinating names are really cool. I'm a fois gras or smoke and ashes girl! Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comment!

  54. Cannot wait for the Hunger Games! The books were fantastic!


  55. I can't wait for the movie to come out! I have read all of the books, but I don't know the answer to your questions. However, they were really quick reads, if that is any motivation:)


  56. Ohhhhhhh Lenny *sigh*.....................................
    oh sorry, I got lost there for a moment...hahah dreaming.....
    I love Lenny! I haven't joined the whole Hunger Games bandwagon yet. I need to find out more about these books and movies (one movie? More movies?)
    See? I know nothing. But thanks for talking about Lenny....*sigh*.....
    ; )

  57. I don't read the Hunger Games so the majority of my opinion is secondhand. But apparently, it's super ironic that they're making polishes out of the Hunger Games characters because it's the luxury and extravagance that the Capital is supposed to represent.

    Haha. I hope someone else can explain it better.

  58. cute blog hun! can't wait to read more! found you while "blog walking" and thought i would say a hello!

    newest follower ♥ -- would love it if you could visit me and follow back sometime ?

  61. Don't know anything about this sort of games! :((

    <3 Marina

  63. I am looking forward to this film! Te nail varnishes also look great! Kisses <3<3

  64. Really intrigued by the shot of Effie - looks like there will be some fun outfits in this movie! :)

  65. I've had The Hunger Games on my booklist for such a long time now...I'm still hoping to get through the 1st one before the movie comes out. I'm loving the look of the China Glaze collection!

  66. Kim, I donno anything about the books either, but I DO love those polishes. I hope thats a good omen to the movie!


  67. I am so excited about the hunger games! I absolutely adore the books and hope the movie won't kill it! haha
    You only need to read the first book to see the movie and they are breaking it up into several films.
    I'm loving the nail polish colors too!

  68. Aw, Kim, now you have me laughing out loud! I read all these books at least three times, and I LOVED it! I think you would too :) I promise :) Can´t wait to see Lenny!

  69. I'm a HUGE reader, and typically shy away from things that get this much attention (i never read or saw anything concerning twilight) but many of my other nerd reading friends recommended the series. I just finished the first book (literally in 2 days), and LOVED it. It keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time.

    Answers to your questions: you do NOT need to read all three books for the first movie... which also answers your second, yes, there will be a separate movie for each book. Whether or not they'll divide up the last book in to two parts like they did with Harry Potter and Twilight, I'm not sure. But for now.. if you want to read it, just get the first one The Hunger Games. You will not regret it!!!


  70. i have never even heard about this movie. actually, it's been soooo long since i've been to a movie... i'd love to go see this with my hubby!

    i love the beautiful, unique colors of those polishes. luxe and lush.... electrify... agro... all so different and pretty! i love that it's not your typical nail colors. :)


a cupcake for your thoughts!
