  27. I'm not going to be seeing the movie this weekend because I still haven't read the first book!! The sad part? I own the first book but it's just sitting there while I catch up on review books. If I win this, I'll have all 3 and maybe I'll force myself to pick them up! :D

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yes! I'm going on Friday night. I wanted to go Thurs. night, but I am in college and have a weekly class that I can't miss.

    Thanks for the giveaway! Awesome HG stuff. :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm such a coward about seeing my favourite books on screen - so many have let me down! I hope this one is as good as the books! :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I really, really want to, but doubt I will be able. I am torn. I liked the trailer, but not sure of the actors playing the main characters and this is giving me pause. But really would like to see how they handled this book on film :) Thank you for the awesome giveaway opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I actually hate crowds so I am waiting to see it when there are less people.

    ReplyDelete

  68. OMG! I can't wait tomorrow I'll watch GMA from work. The countdown started for me last Friday when I purchased my tickets. AHHHH!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I SO want that necklace!! My son has been harassing me to get midnight tickets. Luckily we live in a small town so I'm hoping they'll still have some available tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I am going with my hubby to see the movie hopefully i hope i win

    ReplyDelete
  71. Of course I'm seeing it this weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I am actually going to wait out the weekend so as not to get completely trampled by people lol. Even though I'm sure plenty of people will see this movie more than once, I think the second time around won't be as crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I read the first book but not the last two. Hunger Games was riveting and, since I'm obsessed with film, I suspect I'll like the movie remake even more. If I can get a ticket, I'll probably go on Friday or Sunday. =)

    ReplyDelete
  74. I won't be seeing the movie this weekend -- I don't like huge crowds. But I'll see it as soon as possible. My mom just recently read the series and she is as excited for the movie as I am!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I'm not seeing the movie this weekend or probably at all until it is out on DVD I just purchased the Hunger Games book and I'm excited to finally read it!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I will hopefully see it this weekend but if not I will see it by next weekend for sure!!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Oh my gosh thank you SO much for this amazing and generous giveaway! I have read all three of the Hunger Game books (from the town library), and it would mean EVERYTHING to actually own them. :) I'm super excited for the movie; my cousin and I are going to the midnight release and I cannot wait. We spray painted these grey shirts we had with orange spray paint and spelled out "hunger game super fans" on the fronts and backs, so everyone will know it. :) I also got a brown wig and I'm going to braid it just like Katniss! The books were so fantastic, and I'm sure the movie will be great as well! The charm necklace is so cute, I absolutely love it! Thanks again so much for an awesome contest, and I can't wait to find out who wins! :)
