Are you Team Peeta or Team Gale?
Yeah, but Catching Fire (the book) wasn’t about any of this, and it disappointed me. It was all about Katniss forgetting that she’s the most badass motherfucker in Panem so she could fret about which boy liked her the most. After the phenomenal Hunger Games, I expected so much more from its sequel, and I was sadly smacked about the face with the reality that I’m apparently not in its target demo.
Still, I’m so happy that a generation is seeing and reading it as a call to arms. That’s amazing.
Exactly this. I could have loved you Katniss Everdeen (and did love you in The Hunger Games), and you’re in my top 10 badass YA chicks, but as a role model for empowered women who don’t need a boy you’re doing it wrong.
