reading the hunger game

Me when I finish reading a good book
  • Me: NOOO!!! It can't end that way!!
  • Me: WHY!!!!!!
  • Me: I don't know what to do with my life anymore
  • Me: *is an emotional wreck*
  • Me to a friend: Here read this book
  • Person: what's so great about YA dystopian novels anyway
  • Me: *clears throat*
  • Me: *shifts scene into meeting room*
  • Me: *hands out excepts from books as well as copies of books*
  • Me: *cues powerpoint presentation with laser pointer*
  • Me: *rips off sweatshirt to reveal a dauntless tshirt*
  • Me: *rolls up pants to reveal peeta mellark socks*
  • Me: *shuffles notecards*
  • Me: Well,
Fictional characters make me feel good about myself. I forget for the time being that I aint the perfect size, have the perfect face or about all the talents I lack. I feel good to be me.

Reader problems
  • Me analyzing a school book: the mood is sad and there's like some character development I guess in this chapter like line 81
  • Me talking about a book I read for pleasure: OMG OK SO LIKE THIS CHARACTER IS MY CHILD THEY ARE SO PRECIOUS THIS BOOK IS AMAZING THIS SCENE IS SO PIVOTAL IN CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT IT LITERALLY SETS UP THE EXPOSITION AND FORESHADOWS THIS BUT YOU DON'T SEE IT COMING RIGHT OMG I KNOW AND THEN THIS SCENE IS AN ALLUSION TO THAT AND THERE ARE SO MANY METAPHORS COMPARING THIS TO THAT SO I GUESS you could say this book is written in reference to oppression faced by humans by their own government

“It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them.”
