    I love The Hunger Games because of the characters’ emotional depth. The arcs that each character goes through during the series, regardless if how major or minor they are, has been something that has always spoken to me. If I win, I would take my sister to the premiere with me!!

    • Nykele says:

      I love The Hunger Games because of the instant emotional attachment I felt towards Katniss. Such a strong female character is an inspiration to my generation.
      I’d take my sister, Courtney. She’s my Prim, always.

    • I love how well written all three books were and how accurate the movie was and I love how involved you become with it ,it sucks you in like you actually live in Panem and can feel emotions along with the characters who are no longer names on a page but people and if I were to win I would take my best friend who is just as in love with the Hunger Games as I am.

    • I love The Hunger Games for a variety of reasons. It’s a new type of series, not like others that just deal with a silly love story. The series has meaning. It’s not just about love for another of the opposite sex, it’s about love for those who matters most and love for those you don’t even know. It’s about courage, strength and no matter where you come from, you can ignite a fire and change the odds placed against you. No matter who you are, or what district you can come from, you can make a huge difference and change the world as we know it. It teaches us all to appreciate what and whom we have. The series inspires us to break boundaries, and know that ultimately we are in control of how our lives will play out. The person I would love to accompany me to the premiere, if the odds would be in my favor, is my mother, Martha. She means the world to me and understands how much i love this amazing series.

    • Nidhi Patel says:

      I love The Hunger Games because it goes beyond the love story aspect, like most of the pulp fiction novels for young adults nowadays. The story of Katniss captivated me like no other novel has ever done. Like Katniss and Prim, I’d take my sister with me to the premiere.

  • Sam says:

    I love the Hunger Games for its immersive world, characters everyone can fund themselves in, and well-timed story.. Some would say were already living in the Capitol.

    I’d take my boyfriend, who also loves hg.

  • Marlina Maske says:

    I love the Hunger Games because you can connect to the characters and it shows you a whole other world that you feel a part of as you read. If I win, I would take my fiance with me to the premiere since we are both HG fans!

  • Emily says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it got me into a subject I never would have, in a million years, thought I would like. Dystopian societies…..so interesting! And definitely makes you appreciative of the world we live in currently! If I won, I would take my coworker, Natasha, who is the one who forced me to read these books in the first place!

  • Amy Williams says:

    I love the hunger games because it is such an original story (2) If I win, I will take my sister

  • Christy says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it features a strong female character and a love struck male, not the other way around. I would take my friend Susanna with me!

  • Kelli says:

    I’ve loved the Hunger Games from the first time I picked up the books. I was immediately immersed within the pages of the books as I felt instantly connected to Katniss and all of the characters I have come to love throughout the journey the Hunger Games has taken myself on.

    If I won, I would definitely take my father with me to the premiere. Many would claim this is an odd choice; but it is him that encouraged me to fall in love with books and reading and it is to him that I am forever grateful for that.

  • Marley says:

    I live the hunger games because it has action, romance, and everything else! I would take my mom with me.

  • Michelle Scott says:

    I love the hunger games because they are amazing books that have a plot unlike any other. The characters have so much to them!! I couldn’t put the books down!! and If i win I will be taking my bff!!!

  • Sarah E. says:

    I love The Hunger Games because Katniss is such a flawed character. She is strong and does what she can to save herself. She’s not perfect by any means. She struggles with what to do and ultimately does not back down. The girl on fire is the spark that starts a revolution. That is why I love The Hunger Games. If I win I will take my friend Katherine if she is able to go or my friend Mandy who went with me to the premiere last year.

  • laactress says:

    Why do I love The Hunger Games? That is a tough question. I was asked that same question recently at Comic Con and I will give you the same answer I gave that gentleman. I love the books for SO many different reasons. But the two top reasons are 1. The books focus around a VERY strong woman and it’s rare to find such a strong woman as the main focus of a story. I really do strive to be just like Katniss in my every day world. And 2. Someone said to me once “Do you remember when they were pricking the fingers of the kids as they went to wait for their name to be called” and I said “Of course I remember” and she said to me “It reminds me of the Holocaust and how the Jews had to be branded to show that they had a chance to die” and it really hit home for me. My uncle was the youngest survivor of Oscar Schindler and when it comes to the Holocaust it touches my heart and man, it really did seem like that once I thought about it. Which make Katniss’ character even MORE important because she was fighting for her people, the ones that had no voices.

    And I would bring my Best Friend/Roommate/Cousin to the premiere as she is the one who turned me onto the books in the first place.

  • The Hunger Games,in a way,reflects historical events and shows us that”we” can rise if we all stick together.

    • And I would take my best friend/cousin with me because I borrowed the series from her!

  • Nellie Clements says:

    I love The Hunger Games, the books and the movie, because it’s different. I love the action between the characters and the fact that amidst it all there’s still a romance story line. A good book or movie should completely take you away and emerse you into a different world, and it should also make you feel something, e.g. Katniss’ determination made me feel stronger as a person, and The Hunger Games trilogy definitely does those things. I love it. I would take either my mom or my best friend, both are huge fans too!

  • Linnea Somerville says:

    (1) I love the hunger games because it allows me to enter a world of fiction that I love. I love all of the characters and every aspect of the story line. I loose myself in these books, and love that the series is more than a story line. It give you lesions like the effects of war. I also love the strong female character that gives me a role model to idolize. This series has truly changed my life for the better.

    (2) I would take my best friend and fellow hunger games fan Kate.

  • Wendy says:

    I love the story behind the Hunger Games. I will take my friend who has muscular dystrophy. She is a big fan, and would love this opportunity

  • AXL DANIEL MORA says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it is a idea of what the world could really by like. It also tell the story of a young warrior who becomes a symbol of HOPE to the nation and with all the weight on her shoulders she has to be strong.

    I would take my brother since he is the only one that listens to all my crazy Hunger Games talk.

  • I love the hunger games because the sense of reality, how the characters find themselves in these situations that are so vivid not only in their world but in ours. The sense of love and sacrifice for those who we care about, and the power to keep fighting when all odds are never in our favor.

    I would take my sister, Ana! she was wowed with The Hunger Games!

  • Luke Gelineau says:

    I love the Hunger Games because all of the action.

    I would take my wife, Heather!

  • Dominic DiDonato says:

    I love The Hunger Games because the whole series really shows how you can make light out of a terrible situation. The majority of the characters in this trilogy represent strength and that can really help to inspire so many people today. Also, if I win these tickets I’ll probably bring my older cousin Alyssa, who is just as big of a fan of the series as I am.

  • Kari Byrum says:

    I love Hunger Games because it is just the right mix of fantasy and reality, sadly our society could some day become this way. I also believe the series provides so many strong characters that show the good and bad side of humans in general. I also love Katniss Everdeen and believe she is a extremely positive role model for young girls.

    If I won I would take my wonderful daughter Sianne, who has read all the books cover to cover and can actually quote from them. Her birthday is November 14th and this would be the BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER!

  • I love the Hunger Games because of the depth and variety of characters it provides the reader. You’re bound to like two or more of the characters just as equally, which cannot be said for many books. Each character has their own back story and reasoning for the way they act and are. It’s fun to guess why certain characters act a certain way and what made them that way. There are so many different characters you can relate to and you can sympathize with each and everyone of them. The book isn’t just about a love triangle, it’s about discovering who you are and what you’re willing to do to protect the people you love.
    I would bring my girlfriend because The Hunger Games is what actually brought us together. It’s the reason why we started talking to each other.

  • I love the Hunger Games because its a poignant warning to our society and I hope that young people reading it understand the importance of participation in government and not just accepting the status quo. If I win, my husband is coming with me and will see me fangirl all over everyone. :)

  • Elenor says:

    I love the Hunger Games because its more than a love story. It’s about one girl willing to push herself to her limits to protect the ones she loves. If I won, I definitely would take my sister.

  • Megan says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it’s an amazing story of what a person will do to protect the lives of their loved ones and how one rises to the occasion even when times are grim. It’s about how one person’s courage can start a revolution. It’s moving, it’s courageous, and it’s a story that can be told for many generations. If I win, I will be taking my little sister. She never liked to read before I convinced her to read the Hunger Games series. Now, she’s reading all the time!

  • Jennifer Rosales says:

    I love the hunger games because its intense, suspenseful and emotional. It’s a story where courage and hope is greater than fear. If I win, I will take my sister!

  • Kayla C says:

    The Hunger Games is about survival, family, love, hope, and the consequences of war. There is so much depth to this series beyond just a love triangle. Hope is one of my favorite messages ever, and I love that “Hope is the only thing stronger than fear.” I also appreciate how war is not glamorized. People really do die, and not everybody wins. Even people on the winning team have to deal with major side effects long after the fighting is over. And let’s not forget that Jennifer is phenomenal and such a great role model for every young person (or old person for that matter). If I got the chance to go, I’d take my best friend with me.

  • I love the Hunger Games because of the complexity of the characters and the themes all of the books explore, like the effects of war and the importance of standing up for what you believe. It’s so inspiring, and I think this book series is one of the very best for doing that for the readers.

  • lauren says:

    i like the hunger games because it’s a good series with a very powerful meaning. i could read the books and watch the film 100 times and never tire of it. all the actors in the movie have done a great job and i can’t wait to see the new ones in catching fire! i would take my sister with me who is also a fan of the series

  • Roxanne Dugger-Martinez says:

    I love The Hunger Games because I think it is a warning to us of what could happen if we let the government have too much power. It is a story of triumph and victory but also of loss and despair. I have read a lot of books and these are still my favorites. If I won the tickets I would take my sister.

  • Will Russell says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it portrays how different people respond when pushed to the brink. I would bring my wife Jen with me to the premiere.

  • Michael Stoeffler says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it is such an amazing story and series that entertains while also inspiring it’s readers to be a better version of themselves. If I won the tickets, I would take my friend Shannon with me who was a fan of the series long before the movie was even announced.

  • Erica Alaniz says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it shows us how one person, backed up by many, can make a difference. It also shows us the harsh reality our world is succumbing to by caring so much about reality television. I would take my friend Travis with me, because he is also a big fan and he is the Peeta to my Katniss.

  • Shayna Stanley says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it brought me to a place where I could just be me and introduced me to some of my best friends in the world! Katniss is such an incredible Character that empowers people to stand up for what is right. Katniss along with all the Characters show us when it is time to stand up and represent all the parts of who we are as humans whether it be evil or good.

  • Katie Wagner says:

    I love the hunger games because its a relatable series. Fighting so hard for someone you love, that bond between Katniss and Prim is like every older sister/younger sister bond in the world. I love the passion Suzanne puts in every character, the type of passion that inspires every reader to fight for their rights and protect those whom they love. In very few books can you manifest a relationship between the character and the reader and these books do that. I would take my aunt’s boyfriend’s son Christopher because we both have this obsession with the books and I know it would be such a blessing for him to experience this, it would be for both of us.

  • janet Vazquez says:

    i love the hunger games because it seemed very realistic. the books gave me a chance to bond with my sister. te characters are very likable. i would take my sister to the premiere if i win.

  • I have loved the Hunger Games since I read the books long before they got so popular. I got my best friend, husband and mom to read them and they are all fans now! We all went to the premier together and loved the movie! I can not wait to see the clock come to life on the big screen…not to mention seeing Finnick in the flesh!!!

    • And I would take my husband with me!

  • Roxanne says:

    I love the Hunger Games books because it is unlike any story out there…to send children out to represent their districts is just insane! Some come from poor and others come from rich districts. Some have had training while others have not yet the story is extremely unpredicatable.

    If I win I will take my best friend with me.

  • Shannon says:

    I love the message that one person can make a difference. If I win, I’d take one of my good friends, who also loves the books and movies.

  • lisarotthues says:

    (1) I love The Hunger Games the book because it reflect so much from our world. The message from the book is so strong and powerful. Not to give up, to have hope and to fight for freedom. In the movie i loves the Cast. Everyone of the cast is so good. They can’t make something wrong. (2) I would take my friend with me, because Jennifer Lawrence is our idol and she gives us hope, just like katniss.

  • I love The Hunger Games because it reflects the damage that can be done if we relegate ourselves to the rich and powerful and the lengths they will go through to keep the proletariat down. If I won I would take my new wife because her birthday is 11/22/13 and I can’t think of a better birthday present than tickets to her favorite book and film series’ premier.

  • Maia says:

    I love the hunger games because I am amazed with Dystopian literature. It is my favorite form of speculative fiction. If I win I would take my sister Ishanti she is my good friend and introduced me to The Hunger Games!

  • Erik Valero says:

    The Hunger Games are awesome because it brings a new level of violence and awesomness to a book series targeted at teenagers. If I won, I’d take my little cousin because she’s a way bigger fan of The Hunger Games than I am…or anyone I know.

  • Sam Vargas says:

    : (1) I love The Hunge Games because it relates to our society in very different ways. Also because its so captivating. (2) If I win I will probably take my dad with me because he is also a very passionate fan and I was the one who got him addicted (:

  • ReverendScoot says:

    I love the Hunger Games series because it has such a strong female protagonist who has good morals and a sense of duty to her friends and family. I love that the series deals with oppression and the darker side of humanity but also that the good will triumph even if it is difficult. It is a series that I am glad my daughter read and introduced me to. I would take my daughter to the premiere if we win.

  • Niki Montoya says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it is a book that makes people think about social problems in our world and how we can make them better. It makes me want to be a better person. If I won, I would take my son with me because he is a huge fan!

  • Sophie says:

    The interesting characters my sister

  • Dukie Castro says:

    It’s a great series. Here’s this girl with the weight of the world on her shoulders and she’s actually doing something instead of just waiting to be rescued. Sends a good message to girls to kick ass and not depend on anyone.

    I would take my friend, who’s probably more obsessed with the series than I am.

    My email is, duknatcas (at) gmail.com

  • Sean Bryant says:

    The books are awesome and my wife of course!

  • I love the hunger games because they fight for what they believe in. They are tired of their people being mistreated and they stand up for themselves. They do everything they can for the people they love even if it means it will cost them their lives. If I were to win i would take my roommate Jill!

  • I love the books because while they are written at a younger level, the ideas and themes in them are very adult. I was inspired so much that I wrote 40+ original, fully orchestrated compositions all based on the trilogy, which are on my youtube page (youtube.com/composinkid). If I win, I would take my friend Colleen Welsh, who is ALMOST as obsessed with the trilogy as I am ;)

  • Katy Patti says:

    I love the hunger games because of the way it portrays the government. It represents how power can be abused and the bravery of those that can fight for what they believe in. I would take my best friend Myriah Morales with me because we always geek out over the books and cast together.

  • Jess says:

    The Hunger Games is so powerful to me because it’s about enduring through difficult circumstances. Fighting injustice. Suffering pain and loss and yet finding a way to still have hope.

    If I won I’d want to invite of the amazing fandom friends.

  • Luke James says:

    I love the hunger games because it portrays an amazing, emotional, and beautiful story. It’s taught me so much about courage and sacrifice and has effected me on so many levels. My favorite part would be the story. I know that is a very vague favorite but the story is the best. I’d take my mom to the premiere for everything she’s done for me. Please consider me :)

  • Mel Cally says:

    I love the hunger games because it’s one of those rare books that cross all age groups. It’s one of those books I’m not embarrassed that younger kids like, because I can relate to so much.

    And If I win I’d take my dad because he’s the hardest working 63 year old I know, he loved the movies and after years of my asking he’s finally reading the trilogy!

  • laura says:

    I love the Hunger Games because of the strength of the characters and the moral messages the series sends. I think Suzanne Collins really captured how war can be devastating on all sides, and how the effects can linger on even when the battle has ended. PTSD is such a huge problem among our veterans. It was amazing that it was showcased in a YA book.

    I would bring my mother. I just recently introduced her to HG, and she loves it already! Think it’s time for some good mother-daughter bonding time :)

  • I love the Hunger Games because it’s a great story of a revolution and basic human nature and survival. It introduces people that are horrible and people that are truly kind, no matter their situation.

    Sydney Martin- I’d bring my mom ;)

  • Frankie says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it has taught me many life lessons. How to be a leader, its important to fight for what you want, never give up etc.. The book has just inspired me to be stronger and more confident in who I am. While reading, I found that i related to a lot of the characters stories and personalities. For example, Katniss didn’t have many friends before the Hunger Games and she was a bit anti-social. So was I, but i came out of my comfort zone and tried to become friends with other people because of this her. If Katniss was forced to interact with people, then i should too. It actually helped. I made friends in school and on tumblr and twitter. That is why I love this book. It basically changed my life. And also i love the
    Hunger Games movie because of the amazing cast anJennifer Lawrence is my idol. I would do anything to meet her!
    If I won the contest I would take my cousin Alli because she is also a huge fan of the books and movie.

  • kainat says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it’s just a mere exaggeration of our world. Some would disagree, but it’s true. Suzanne Collins brought our world into words with a little hyperbole.

    • kainat says:

      And i’d bring my brother to the premiere :)

  • I love The Hunger Games because it’s such an amazing parallel of what’s happening in our world today. It may seem like fantasy, but it’s not that far off. I was fascinated by Suzanne’s Collins story about creating the first book after watching a mix of war reports and reality tv. The characters are unforgettable and the message is one we can all learn from. All heaviness aside, I would take my THG BFF to the premiere and we would fangirl our butts off!

  • Delaney Escobedo says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it was such an amazing dystopian novel and was an amazing tale full of action, betrayal, lies, secrets, frustration, and survival. It was the first dystopian I have ever truly liked, scratch that, love. The spin and twist of how the future turned out is simply astounding and spellbinding. It feels as if it could truly happen, with how things are today, it is possible almost. It is simply unforgettable and mind blowing. A tale that with stay with me forever. I will always remember Katniss, Finnick, Peeta and Gale and all the things they represented. And if I were to ever win, which I really hope I do, I would take my older sister who is just as in love with the series as I am.

  • slindeman says:

    I love the Hunger Games because of the intesity of the drama within Katniss as she struggles to balance her desire to survive with her desire to do the right thing.

    I would bring my wife to the premier.

  • Name says:

    It’s a awesome book and I would bring family

  • Camila Paleno says:

    I love the Hunger Games because the characters. Katniss has always been someone I could relate to, and the lessons she learned through out the books have inspired me and helped me greatly. I would take my best friend Sophia, who is probably doing everything she can to get these tickets, too. She deserved it!

  • aylin says:

    I love the hunger games because it’s really different from all the books I’ve read in the past. It a whole new word with characters each have a unique past. The characters also face challenges in book makes kind of intense I guess…
    I would bring my mom or my sister to the premiere

  • sugarpaws81 says:

    (1) Why do you love The Hunger Games?
    Because it’s no a happy go lucky story, it’s real. Stuff happens and there is a lot of adversity. Katniss means so much more to me than just a character, she is an inspiration!
    (2) If you win, who will you take with you to the premiere?
    My husband because he would kill me if I didn’t take him! Plus, he is also a fan :)

  • I love The Hunger Games because it’s a sort of exaggerated version of our society. It draws parallels with society’s obsession with reality shows and celebrities and materialistic needs to always have the newest thing. I love the story line because it is a very plausible thing that can happen or at least something of the sort. We are so obsessed with reality shows and reality television that we forget that the people on there are people with emotions, feelings, etc. We don’t tend to care as long as we are entertained.

    I would take my sister because I know she would kill me if I didn’t, because she now regrets not reading the series before the movie came out, despite my nagging her to read the books. :)

  • Heather Wrzesinski says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it has lots of interesting characters and a well told story with plenty of depth. I would take my mom.

  • Gabby says:

    I’ve been following the hunger game series for atleast 2 years. In the short time we have been together you can say I have gotten so many people obsessed with the series and I’m one of the most dedicated fans out there. I have made countless photo collages, theres a huge one on the back of my door! I also will see a movie that has any of the cast members in it! I was familiar with Josh before the Hunger games! I loved him in Little Manhatten! And any magazine that even just mentions the Hunger games or the cast…Bought! I try to keep with everyone through all the social media sites. I even have a picture of josh and i together ( I edited in my face hehe)! Maybe i’ll get to get an actual picture with him soon! This series has changed my life in ways that im so happy of. May the odds be ever in everyone’s favor. And of course i would bring my mom!

  • Sandy B. says:

    I enjoy the Hunger Games because it is a compelling and foreboding story of a frightening and destructive society.

    Naturally, I will take my lovely daughter with me to the premier. She is a huge fan of the trilogy; much more so than myself.

  • I am a HUGE fan of The Hunger Games. I love everything about it: the characters, the writing, the storytelling, the badass female protagonist, it’s political relevance and morals for the real world and time we live in…. the list goes on. I am an avid reader, so to say that The Hunger Games series is one of my favorites says a lot. I also just happen to be an actress and a filmmaker, and I’ve never been more pleased with a film adaptation of a book as I was with “The Hunger Games.” “Catching Fire” is my favorite book, and I cannot wait for the premiere!

    To the premiere I would bring my my best friend/ filmmaking partner. We both hold immense passion for the film industry (and the Hunger Games!), so go to the premiere together would be very special.

  • Susan Ochinko says:

    I read The Hunger Games after my son read the series. We saw the midnight premier for his birthday, and I fell in love with the series. Everything Katniss stands for is something we can all learn from. She puts her life on the line to help her family, and she does this more than once. She is so fierce and determined that you cant help but fall in love with her. I can definitely admit that I want to be more like Katniss. She does everything she knows is right without thinking, and I definitely learned from her. I’ve been following this series for two years along with my son, and I have enjoyed seeing every trailer, and still of the movie so far. I cant wait for the movie, and I would be blessed to have the opportunity.I am glad my son got me to read the series because Katniss had been the best character I’ve gotten to see grow. If I won, I would take my son with me. He is the one who got me hooked originally, and he’s an even bigger fan than I am. He is 14 so he’s been the one showing me the trailers and stills, and I know he would be ecstatic to have this wonderful opportunity to see the premier of his favorite series, and possible meet his favorite actress.

  • I love Hunger Games because it shows women are tough too. I’d take my mother with me. We live in LA County :)

  • Tahseen says:

    Why do you love The Hunger Games? I love THG because of the flawless character development. I fell in love with characters because I was able to emotionally connect with them and I think that’s what’s important, is being able to understand the character’s journey throughout the novels.

    If you win, who will you take with you to the premiere? I would take my mom if I win because she’s never been to L.A. and it’s a dream of her’s as well as mine, to go to a red carpet premiere, especially if it’s for out favorite book. <3

    I love the Hunger Games because I can just get lost in its world with so many wonderful, colorful characters. I would take my friend Nat to the premiere with me.

  • I love The Hunger Games because it tells a great story of growth. Katniss goes from a girl who only tries to protect herself (and technically Prim) to a young woman who will do anything to protect the innocent people of Panem from the insufferable people of the Capitol.

    If I won, I would ask my friend Hunter to go with me because we’ve bonded over THG (and Josh Hutcherson).

  • Lucie MacAulay says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it is a representation of the way people have used killing as a sport and it tells about a person’s ability to survive not by avoiding it, but by grasping it and fighting the inhumanity with humanity.

    IF I went I would brinf my movie-buddy and friend Emily, because she’s great to travel with and completely used to being dragged to the movies.

  • Kimy(Kim,Kimberly) says:

    Why do I like the hunger games? Well…i don’t…I love the hunger games. Every time you see someone and they have all the hunger games t-shirts and all the merchandise but I only have a t shirt that my sister bought (who is who i would bring because she has not only helped me be better but who has taught me everything i know) and her old leather jacket which I pretend is a Katniss jacket that they sell in stores but, the reason I love the hunger games is because when I first read it, it expanded my imagination and my creativity to be open to new things. What the hunger games did to me is unexplainable because it just brought my emotions out so when Katniss cried I cried when Katniss laughed I laughed and its just an experience that I can’t forget and that’s why I spend every waking moment trying to find out if there are any news of catching fire or if I can find out more and more, to see if I can be like primrose everdeen, that one slip in thousands waiting to be called.

  • Blake Goldstein says:

    (1) Why do you love The Hunger Games? I love the idea of the Hunger Games because it’s all about the survival. People are brought up with nothing in some of the districts and expected to rise to the occasion. I think it has a great message about pushing through the struggles and fighting for what’s right. If I could take anyone with me, I would take my boyfriend Chris. Our first date was to see The Hunger Games and he fell in love with it and I got him to read the books after. We have been looking forward for Catching Fire to come out, if we could see it at the premier, that would be so amazingly unbelievably awesome!

  • Emily says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it gives me hope that the good guys will always win. If I will I will bring my best friend/roommate because she is just as obsessed as I am!

  • Heather says:

    I love The Hunger Games♡ It is a pasion of mine. I never liked reading books. It was something I thought was boring. Nothing ever grabbed my attention. I went and saw The Hunger Games movie when it come out. Never read the books before. So I decided to give it a try. I have now read all 3 books several times. I have bought all of them on Audible. I’ve listened to them probably 15 times each especially when I lie in bed trying to go to sleep. Or when I’m doing dishes, driving or at the gym. I’m so glad I started reading them. It would’ve been a shame to miss out on such an excellent trilogy. I would definitely be taking my sister with me. She is my best friend and understands my obsession. I talked her into reading the books . She now understands me. She’s in love now too. Thanks for the opportunity to win such an amazing prize. Fingers crossed♡

    (1) Why do you love The Hunger Games?
    I love the Hunger Games because the storyline is interesting and unlike anything else. The characters are lovable and likable.
    (2) If you win, who will you take with you to the premiere?
    I would take my best friend with me!

  • Sana Khan says:

    I love the hunger games because of the characters. My favorite Hunger Games character would definitely be Peeta Mellark. His kind, compassionate and loving nature is what makes him such a heart-warming character. The love that he has for Katniss is impeccable. In Mockingjay, when Peeta is hijacked by President Snow, he is able to gradually find himself again because of his love for Katniss. Without Katniss, Peeta could have potentially been mentally lost forever. In the first novel of the series, The Hunger Games, Peeta was willing to pretend to be a part of the Careers pack so that he could protect Katniss. He was putting his life on the line to save her. This is truly remarkable and I look up to him. Peeta Mellark is willing to do whatever it takes to protect the woman that he loves. I wish every man was like him. (y) The fact that one of my most favorite actors, Josh Hutcherson, was able to bring this character to life on the big screen is simply amazing. The portrayal of Peeta Mellark could not be more spot on. I truly and honestly hope that I am selected to win these tickets, and best of luck to everyone else that has entered!

  • (1) Why do you love The Hunger Games? I love the Hunger Games because it’s not just an interesting YA fiction novel with characters that suck you in – it really makes you think. The entire series will overtake your thoughts. It was all I could think about for months after I finished the series. It’s so well written and compelling. And did I mention the characters suck you in? How can you not FEEL for Katniss with everything she experiences, LOVE Peeta for all the good in him, and HURT for Gale with all the poor luck that he has. Every character is just someone you can’t help but wanting to know everything about them. The Hunger Games series is honestly (without exaggeration) one of a kind. I love it and will always love it.

    (2) If you win, who will you take with you to the premiere? I will take my best friend. She just moved to another state and I rarely see her anymore but we both are huge Hunger Games fans … after I introduced her to the series of course.

  • Lisa says:

    One of the underlying messages of The Hunger Games has always solidified the series as one of my all time favorites… and that message is that one person’s actions can inspire real change in the world. Those actions don’t even have to be of the “WOW” and “BAM” variety, but just simple choices that if seen by the right people at the right time can spark something truly incredible. And what’s more? Even a young person can be the one to have that impact. This message is so inspiring to young people of our generation (myself included!), that it remains one of the top reasons why I love The Hunger Games.

    Also… Finnick is pretty easy on the eyes. ;D

    If I were to win these tickets, I’d be whisking one of my roommates from college away for the adventure! I got her hooked on the books just as hardcore as myself, and we’d often stay up late talking about this character or that moment. :) We’d have to see them come to life on the big screen together!

  • Jason Foulk says:

    (1) Why do you love The Hunger Games? I love the hunger games because they were a good read and they’re good movies. I like reading and film. (2) If you win, who will you take with you to the premiere? If I win, I will take my girlfriend with me as a surprise present for her!

  • The stories told within all three of The Hunger Games books are truly beautiful, in a tragic and emotional sense. Between the suspense of Katniss’s first games, to her battle on the streets of the Capitol. Every chapter had me cursing at a book and crying for fictional characters. And for that, I love them.

    As for who I would bring to the premiere, I would bring my friend of 11 years. My neighbor and also one of my best friends, Steven. :)

  • Ashley Burns says:

    One of the many reasons I love the Hunger Games is I read them with my little cousin Caroline. She is 13 now, but we read them a couple years ago when she was struggling with reading. She had so much fun reading them that she didn’t even mind that she was struggling. We also got really close while reading together. And I also just LOVE Katniss! :) I would bring my cousin Caroline with me to the premiere and she would ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!

  • Remi Lee says:

    My favorite character is Katniss, she’s fearless. Anything that is thrown at her she will overcome. I love that. I would take my friend Hannah. :)

  • HOLY SUGAR CUBES!!! I LOVE THE HUNGER GAMES BECAUSE 1) It’s so compelling, and Suzanne Collins does such a MARVEL-OUS (see what i did there? :P) job with the perfect way to write a cliffhangers, developing situations, and characters! That brings me to #2….2) THE SECOND MAIN REASON IS BECAUSE OF KATNISS. She starts out tentative when dealing with situations, which reminds us that she is human-even though she’s fictional. Katniss is very relatable to me personally; very analytical, and non-conformist in a way. (SHE’S SO INFLUENTIAL…I’ve taken up a teensy bit of archery, :P but has also made me think twice of others. Because my parents are divorced, our mom does a lot, but she can’t do everything, so we’ve had to be responsible for our younger siblings since we were little because we are the oldest. This reminds me of Katniss and Prim (DId I mention that everyone in my family has dark brown hair, but I call my blond sister Prim:) Haha…yeah, Katniss is definitely influential. 3) The third reason is that the book has FInnick Odair, and everyone needs some sugar…cubes. :P

  • Oh! I already commented my other requirements, but i forgot to say that if I win, I would take my step-mom because I’m pretty sure your companion has to be over 18, but mostly because I introduced her to The Hunger Games series, and she’s a big fan, too! She and I went to the midnight premiere last year on a school night, and she’s a teacher! #rebels #notreally :P
    Also, in case the odds aren’t in my favor, I VOLUNTEER! :D

  • Allie says:

    i love the hunger games because it is showing that one single persons actions can make a major difference in the world. it is showing young readers that if they believe in something and wish to accomplish something major then all they have to do is put their mind to it and go after it and then it is possible to achieve.

  • Destiny says:

    The Hunger Games trilogy are brilliantly written. The Characters are built up remarkably well, which makes they real to the readers. I felt like I was in the story watching it unfold in front of my eyes. I loves these books because they are storytelling at it’s best.
    I would take my daughter with me, as she and I both loves these books and loved the first movie! we can’t wait for Catching Fire!

  • Allye N says:

    I feel like I’m writing an essay here.. Haha
    Is it too easy to say I love Hunger Games because its just a well-written book? Okay, okay. The Hunger Games is great because it’s a compelling story. It keeps you interested and wanting more. You sympathize with the characters. And the storyline is intriguing. I mean, more than once I found myself thinking, “What if the world really becomes like this one day?”
    As for who I would take? My best friend. We found each other through Twilight, and we read The Hunger Games together. We’re book people. And we’re both excited to see this book come to life on the big screen.

  • Ann says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it draws you in and is like an escape. I would take my best friend!

  • Samantha says:

    I love the hunger games because not only has it gotten me back into reading. But it helped me get to know a bunch of amazing people on tumblr. And i’d either take my husband or one of my amazing tumblr friends

  • Isabella Montero says:

    I love The Hunger Games because the books create a world that is so real and the characters depth are immense. They have real feelings and act as if normal people would. I honesty have a hard time believing they are not real. I sure wish they were though. The books really keep you on the edge of your seat and they keep you guessing and wondering what will happen next. I can’t wait for Catching Fire and I would take my father with me because he and I really need to bond over something because he has been away for so long and we need to get a stronger relationship.

  • Andrew Krall says:

    I love hunger games because you just get lost in the books. and I would take my mother who has cancer.

  • Why do you love The Hunger Games? It is one of the best series that has been written, all the characters are well thought out and people can really connect to them. It shows you the value of believing in yourself and not losing who you are even if the toughest of times. There’s always a way. If you win, who will you take with you to the premiere? I would take my best friend, we have been best friends and like sisters for seven years, we read the series together and of course, we have to go to the premiere together. It can’t be done any other way.

  • Jessica Hua says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it’s a series I could read over and over again and never get tired of! From the very first page I was hooked and on hiatus from life as I holed myself in my room and breezed through the pages. The Hunger Games really gives girls a female hero to look up to and root for and you can’t help falling in love with each character. I was bawling my eyes out for Rue and for a book and words on paper to move someone that deeply shows what a great series this is. I would love to take my best friend Britney to the showing so we can dress up as Katniss and Effie! Our costumes are collecting dust and we are ready for round 2!

  • Gabriel Lasalle says:

    I love the Hunger Games trilogy because it is so much more than the stereotypical love triangle theme that people who haven’t read the books think it is. At first I was skeptical because i heard all of the comparisons to Twilight but then my English teacher highly recommended it to me so i gave it a shot. I was instantly hooked to the story. I was fascinated by how strong Katniss Everdeen was and how well she dealt with the pressure of carrying an entire nation on her shoulders. It was also really great to see that she pushed her two potential suitors (Peeta and Gale) aside because she knew there were more important things to do like lead a rebellion. Even the I was really into the rebellion stuff I was really interested to find out who she would pick. I love how she at first pretended to love Peeta to survive and then over time realized that she really did love him. She just couldn’t believe that the boy she pretended to love was the one she actually fell in love with. Also all the characters in the series are all fascinating. I really do admire Peeta because I feel me and him share a lot of the same qualities so I always connected to him. I also love how he brings Katniss hope and how he will do anything to protect her.My other favorite characters (except Katniss) are Finnick, Effie, and Haymitch. The whole trilogy really draws you in with great character development, an action packed story, great plot twists, and exceptional writing by Suzanne Collins who’s cliff hangers always made me go to bed later than I wanted to. If I won i would take my cousin Rosaly because she is like my sister and we are both huge Hunger Games Fans. And after all she has been through I would like nothing more than to tell her we are going to L.A. for the premiere.

  • I love the hunger games because katniss is an idol in a time when so many girls are told they are weak and stupid. she is neither. I love Ms.Collins for creating this wonderful character in such a horrible world! Katniss and Prim remind me in a way of my sister and I and I would absolutely bring my sister if I won.

  • Edgar Zavala says:

    There is no possible word to describe what the series means to me. Is there a force stronger than love? It shows true hardship, challenges we face today and the true meaning of family. This is a series everyone needs to be reading.

    And if I were to win, I’d invite my friend who lives in LA and is more of a fan as I am, literally!

  • I love The Hunger Games because its a great and well written book series with characters that you can’t help but love and care about. Suzanne Collins doesn’t hold back; she gets very real with this series, and its what helps make it one of my favorite series. I would take my friend, Sylvia, my fangirl bestie with me, or I’d take my dad, because there aren’t many books that he has read but he has read those and liked them!

  • I love the Hunger Games because it’s and easy read and has simple yet impacting themes. I’d take my best friend!

  • Hello. I do not understand you can participate if you are from Russia or not. But I have to try. I can not find the beautiful words are not in my own language to describe how much I love the Hunger Games. They changed my life. To get to the premiere – my dream. I’ll be the happiest man on earth if get there. You can fulfill my little dream? I hope so. Even if I do not win – thank you for holding this contest, I will be truly happy for the winners.

  • Cam says:

    The Hunger Games proved that you could have a major franchise based on a strong female character. I would take my sister because she sees Katniss as her hero.

  • Erma Zulmarie Soto says:

    You’re asking why i LOVE the Hunger Games? that’s a hard question… I love the Hunger Games because of the whole plot. When i decided to read them the first movie was about to come out in theaters and i was curious what the whole fuss was about. To me the books were extremely fascinating! It brought to light alot of topics that living in a country like the USA one wouldn’t really consider. For example, would you risk your life to save the ones you love? These books open my eyes to a whole new world i wouldn’t have found myself. I mean this story isn’t as fictional as we all might think. Was it not in Rome where they held events where people where thrown into an arena and were expected to fight for their lives against furious animals and other human beings?

    If i won i would take my fangirling partner Melody who is my little sister :) i got her into these books and they are now her favorite books in the entire world! She is the main reason i want to win these tickets so much. She would do anything to see the actors who portray the characters in these films. Winning these tickets would mean the world to her and i want to be the one that gets to make her wish come true.

  • Lili says:

    I love cause it’s such a rich story in so many aspects. It makes you laugh, it makes you cry, it makes you love and it makes you think. When I win, I’ll take my husband with me because he keeps up with my HG obssession! =P

  • Michelle M. says:

    (1) I love the series because it raises moral and political questions to a widespread audience.
    (2) I would take my friend Alex to the premiere (:

  • Sarah says:

    1). I love Hunger Games because it really makes you (deep think). 2) I would take my daughter Ocean with me.

  • Amanda Benash says:

    I love the hunger games because the books kept you on the edge of your seat. You never knew what was going to happen next or how strong Katniss really was until she was able to accomplish all she did. I would take my best friend with me!

  • Candi Moser says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it’s a story about survival. Sacrifice for what you believe in, standing up for what you believe and fight against what is wrong. They are amazing books and I read them all really fast. It’s never dull. Keeps you reading and rooting. I would take my husband.

  • jenna says:

    I love The Hunger Games because Katniss is truly a full-developed, complex heroine; a definite breath of fresh air from the types of heroines we get in the movies. I would bring my younger sister because she introduced me to the books and then the movies.

  • Glenn Stein says:

    I love the Hunger Games because even though the Katniss doesn’t start out being very nice, she recognizes her faults, and becomes a better person, all while maintaining her sanity as her country goes to war and her loved ones die or worse.

    I would take a friend with a custom Katniss mockingjay costume.

  • Shaily says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it’s a beautiful story that teaches that love can be found even in the darkest times. it’s an inspirational tale about life and death, love and hate, and friendship.
    I will be taking my sister if I win!
    Thank you so much!

  • olivia says:

    The Hunger Games is a book I love so much because it really got me into the dystopian world of books which led me to read more amazing books ten times as often. I am such a huge bookworm now. I would only take a friend who is also a devout tribute/Mockinjay ;D

  • Baylor says:

    I love that The Hunger Games is not afraid to break your heart. It is so believable that in a war even people we love might die. I also love when a story has a villain that you want to punch and The Hunger Games has plenty of those. The Hunger Games is what first got me into reading so much and is the only book that has ever made my heart pound. I would love to bring my mom to the premiere because I got her to love The Hunger Games too.

  • Nicole Santana says:

    I love the hunger games because it is amazingly written and it was the first dystopia series that became famous and that i read. I also love how emotional the books and movies are how the movies stick to the books. I would take my cousin because she intruduced me more or less and we do everything together that has to do with the hunger game, last year we went the opening day together to a theater 30 mins away because the ones near us all the tickets were sold out

  • Amanda M. says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it has gotten so many of my junior high students loving to read over the years. Of course, I’m also a huge fan of it myself. Katniss is a completely real character put in impossible situations. She is far from perfect, and so relateable. If I win, I’d take my best friend, also a teacher!

  • Dominick T. says:

    I love the Hunger Games because its about a corrupt government hosting games where kids kill kids (kinda messed up) and the story is pretty good. If I were to go, I would take my best friend who is barely getting into this series.

  • Why do I love The Hunger Games:
    Let me start by saying that I am a huge fan of the books, and from the time I first read them to right now, I always liked all three main characters in the series: Katniss, Peeta and Gale. But there were just way too many things about Katniss that I identified with, that really hit home for me personally. Throughout the entire series I felt like I truly understood Katniss, that her feelings and thoughts mirrored what my own would be in the same situations. And let’s face it, Katniss is dark, she has a lot of flaws, she makes a lot of mistakes. But her motives always rang true to me, the reasoning why always felt authentic and it made sense. She was one of the most human characters I have ever encountered in series and to identify with her so strongly actually helped me to accept some of my own flaws.

    There was never really any question in my mind as to who Katniss would end up with: it was always Peeta. After everything she had been through, she needed him to help her put the pieces back together again, to make sense of all the pain and chaos that she had seen and experienced. At the end of the series, when basically everyone who Katniss had ties to in District 12 is either dead or leaves for another District, she and Peeta are pretty much the only exception. The fact that the two of them go back to the ruins of District 12 to rebuild, the fact that she is able to do this because of her bond with Peeta, that’s why I love the series so intensely. It gives me hope.

    “What I need to survive is not Gale’s fire kindled with rage and hatred. I have plenty of fire myself. What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again and only Peeta can give me that.” -Mockingjay

    WHo would I take:
    I would take one of my best friends Teresa to the premiere. She not only knows he deep my love for the series goes, she shares it!! She and I are counting the days till the midnight screening! :)

  • K. J. Dillman says:
    That the Hunger Games movie was so entertaining that it left me hungering for more. I jumped ahead and read the next two books and can not wait to see Hunger Games:Catching Fire. The fictional story line is awesome and so are the love stories entertwined throughout. I was spellbound by the movie and was caught up in the moment with the sequel books. Most movies are a let down from the book; but, not so with the first movie…again waiting in anticipation for Catching Fire! Katniss is my personal fav character.

    I hadn’t read any books for several years but these books and my kindle got me re-inspired.

    I would take my little sis who I haven’t seen in awhile as I live in Point Arena and she lives in Oxnard. Would be a double to treat to see her and the movie.

  • Kimberly Hampshire says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it is such a thrill ride! When reading the books, you never expected what was coming and it would put you into pure shock when something huge happened. That’s what kept people reading and making it so interesting, that I didn’t want to put ANY of the books down.
    If I won the tickets, I would take my boyfriend Alex of over 5 years, who is also a Hunger Games lover!

  • Braxten Rutherford says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it helped me through a very difficult time in my life. Every night I was able to escape into the mind of Katniss (even though I’m a guy), and for a few chapters at least, I was able to gain perspective into how blessed I really am. I’m not ashamed to say that I fell in love with The Girl on Fire, and she is the role model that I will no doubt introduce to my daughters someday. I don’t really want to go into all that The Hunger Games means to me in such a public forum, but I will say that I am so very thankful that we have such an amazing story to escape to when life gets a little dark, and characters to love and admire when those in our lives sometimes let us down. Oh, and I would be taking my adorable little sister who loves the series just as much as me!

  • Jade says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it spotlights the strength of humanity. No matter what the repercussions, Katniss did what was right in her mind and heart which inevitably was her standing up against the Capitol. Through her public persona, districts rallied behind her. That idea of bringing people together effortlessly for one cause is beautiful to me. And, without a doubt, I would bring my best friend to the premiere with me as a giant thank you for persistently bugging me to read the books despite how much I fought her on it.

  • Tae says:

    I love the hunger games because it is one of the most interesting, unique series I have ever read. I’d take my twin sister to the premiere!

  • Tiffany says:

    Lets see first I love the Hunger Games because even though there is a love story that’s not all what it is based on, there is actually a whole meaning behind the story. Then second I would take my mom because she is my hero and I would love to do something for her.

  • Navneet Virk says:

    I love the hunger games because it features a strong female character who stands up to a totalitarian regime. She, like many of us, is conflicted and afraid at times but she keeps on going despite that. It’s easy to completely immerse yourself in the story and lose track of everything. It was a great Trilogy! If I were to win I would take my friend Paimanjot along with me. Her birthday is coming up so it would make a fantastic birthday gift!

  • Bailey everett says:

    The hunger games is such a wonderful, creative sory that shows the readers how powerful love and companionship is. It’s not just a “love triangle” like most people want it to b. I’ve found so much joy in this series and I would absolutely LOVE to got to eh premiere!!!!!!! If I won, I would go with my dad because he has always been a very supportive father and he loves to got to things like this!! Thanks and may the odds be ever in MY favor! Lol

  • Audrey Haugen says:

    I love this series so much. I love the characters and their relationships with each other. I love how the series keeps you on your toes, as there are many plots twists that come out of nowhere! I’d probably bring my mom or sister. Don’t know which yet :)

  • Sylvia says:

    I love The Hunger Games series for so many reasons. The characters, the themes, the issues it deals with. I could go on forever about everything i love about it! But im gonna keep this comment short :) If i won i would give the second ticket to my tribute best friend, Grace. We have never met in real life but we have been friends for more than one year and it would be awesome to meet in LA and attend the premiere of CF together!

  • Jordanne Morrow says:

    I love the Hunger Games because of the social commentary that it gives. You can really compare the society as well as the government presented in the novels to that of real life. I really like the fact that the books have such depth, which is really unique for a YA book, it really challenges the reader to take a harder look at the world around them.
    If I won the tickets I would take my best friend Michelle Thompson.
    (I may have accidentally entered twice, I thought I entered once earlier, but I never saw the comment show up, so just in case I’m posting again. Sorry!!)

  • Gordon Histed says:

    I love The Hunger Games because I enjoyed the whole message of the story overall, plus it was a unique idea, which I have never read before.

    If I was to win the tickets to the premiere, I would without a doubt take my daughter, who introduced me to the breathtaking trilogy and who is not only overly obsessed with just the books, but also with Peeta Mellark.

  • Stephanie Keller says:

    I love everything about The Hunger Games! The characters, the themes, the story, the setting. I’ve read them all twice in two weeks because I can’t stop. The first movie did an amazing job and I can’t wait to see Catching Fire! I would bring the Finnick to my Annie, my boyfriend!!!

  • Brittany Phelan says:

    I love The Hunger Games so much. It’s the best trilogy ever. The reason why it’s the best is because it has the most touching and real characters. I look up to the characters and hope I’m as brave as they are in the books. I would take my best friend to the premiere!

  • Claire says:

    I love the hunger games because it is a great series ! I love the characters and the actors that play the characters that I hope to meet sometime . I would take my friend that is also in love with josh hutcherson

  • I love the Hunger Games because it is a book series that tells a unique, awesome story. I would take my best friend with me.

  • Claudia says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it shows the struggle of girl who is forced to make decisions in a crumbing and corrupt world, becoming stronger through her experiences. Since I am at college and won’t be able to make the premiere, I would give the tickets to my sister and mother who would love to be there.

  • Katrina M says:

    1)The Hunger Games has had a huge impact on my life. I started reading the books 5 years ago when they come out and have fell in love her since. Something that makes The Hunger Games book so much better than other books, is that it is a dystopian series. There are many books these days that have the classical “happy ending”. In reality, life won’t always have a happy ending. The Hunger Games gives the readers a taste of reality. The Hunger Games has taught me to fight for what i love and don’t let obstacles get in the way.
    2) I’d bring my mom with me because she loves the Hunger Games ALMOST as much as i do!

    I love The Hunger Games series for so many reasons. For one, I am completely in love with the idea behind it and the themes that Suzanne Collins was able to convey through a teen novel. She was able to talk about love and compassion, about wrong and right, the struggles of depression and re-finding yourself, the will to live, the wrongs people will do to live, the wrongs people will do for power, how the voice of one person can mean so much, and even politics. I am also completely in love with every single individual character, from the protagonist Katniss Everdeen to Darius the District 12 Peacekeeper. Each character had emotional depth and their own individual story outside of Katniss’ plot, and Suzanne made me fall for each and every one of them. They all played such a pivotal role in the plot, no matter who they were, whether it was through their own actions, their words, or their effect on other characters. I am also fascinated by the amazingly original story and overall plot line, as well as the immersive world that Suzanne created. I’ve never read a story like it. Suzanne made a crazy, stretched out, unrealistic world that, if you think about it, has more parallels to our world than we would like to admit. Not only do the characters make us think about ourselves, but the world makes us think about our society and the population of human beings as a whole. It is the single most amazing series I, personally, have ever read, and they will always be my favorite books.

  • Jennifer says:

    If I win, since I am under 18 years of age I will unfortunately have to bring a parent.

  • Carissa Stevens says:

    I was first drawn to The Hunger Games trilogy because I have always had a deep love of dystopian literature; however, the strength and resiliency of Katniss Everdeen quickly turned me into a hardcore fan. I am a high school English teacher, and I had often found the female protagonists in young adult literature to be disappointing. Katniss is truly a remarkable character–a young woman who loves deeply but does not allow that love to make her weak. If I were to win this contest (after screaming and crying hysterically) I would invite my younger sister with me. I introduced her to the novels and she is also a very fervent fan of the series.

  • 1) I love The Hunger Games because of it’s theme and characters. It makes you try to think what you would do if you got chosen as a tribute and how you’d survive. When you read the books, you just can’t put them down!

    2) If I will, I’ll take my sister since we are both huge fans and always love discussing the books.

    • Oh I forgot my email! It’s larissa90us@yahoo.com

  • Claudia Juarez says:

    I LOVE THE HUNGER GAMES…because it’s just so different it not like anything I’ve ever read before ,when I read it I fell in love instantly with all the characters and the story itself. I would take my best friend because the only reason we became bestfriends was because we began to talk about how much we loved the book.

  • justin says:

    I love the Hunger Games because of JLaw.
    I’d take a hot date to the premiere!

  • Jackie says:

    (1) I love The Hunger Games because it is about survival and love. Plus Jennifer Lawrence is awesome. And Taylor Swift is associated with it. (2) I will take my best friend with me!!

  • Erin Barr says:

    I love the Hunger Games because I think it is a great story for people of all ages – there are so many things we can learn about ourselves and our society from this series. The relationships throughout the series are amazing, and the depth of emotion is fantastic.
    I would take my best friend with me because last year we tried so hard to get in to the premiere of the Hunger Games and couldn’t, so we made a pact we would do it this year. Last year we drove over 5 hours one way from NY to Toronto just on the off chance we might catch a glimpse of Liam, Josh & Alexander (and we got lucky!), and this year we are ready to go to LA – we’ve already got our trip planned and everything!

  • Erin Y. says:

    I love the Hunger Games for several reasons. the first is that it is a really fresh and new look at dystopian society. I love the idea od something as old as gladitortial games becoming such a big influence in a dark future.

    I also loved the flipped gender roles. Katniss is a big, strong, hunter who doesn’t let her emotions overcome her. Peeta is a softer person, artistic and unable to kill. While most people would label Katniss as being more ‘masculine’ and Peeta as being more ‘feminine,’ it never really becomes an issue in the books. Becuase of this, the readers never think it strange, which shows a growth in our own society of getting away from such strict gender stereotypes.

    The third and final reason that I love the Hunger Games is how it has spread the love of reading to so many people. These books can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of age, gender, race, or religion. In fact, I’m not sure if I actually know anyone who hasn’t read the books!

    • Erin Y. says:

      Also, I would take my boyfriend with me to the premiere. He just recently read the books for the first time, and he agrees with me that the best one is definitely Catching Fire!

  • Erin, The Hunger Games #1 Fan says:

    (1) The Hunger Games completely changed my life, my world, and my perspective on everything. I love it for so many of its different elements. One of these elements is the characters’ depth. Each one is written with such emotion and is well rounded. The variety of personalities, circumstances, and stories combined into this one literary work is absolutely unbelievable. Every single one of them left an enormous impact on me, their influences causing me to become a better person by learning from their victories and mistakes. The story in general is one of the reasons I love The Hunger Games, which is an obvious reason for any fan. When I had first read it, it completely exceed my expectations and was (and still is) nothing like I had ever read before. It is something unimaginable, incredible. It astounds me that Suzanne could form such an idea in her mind. Writing something like that takes true imagination and pure brilliance. Ive read the series seven times (and Im still going!), but the story’s effect on me never changed. It is the example of what true literature is and contains all of the elements required to transform a story into an unforgettable story. I am absolultely ecstatic to see the Catching Fire movie, and I know it will be just as good as, or even better than, the Hunger Games movie.(2) If I won a trip to the world premiere, I would know exactly who to take. I am merely 13 years old (14 by Nov. 10) and would need a parent/guardian to accompany me. So I would definitely, without a doubt, take my 6th grade teacher, Mrs. De La Cruz. Mrs.DLC is one of the most amazing adults I’ve met in my entire life. In fact, I don’t even really consider her as much of a teacher. She is so much more. She is like a big sister or best friend to me, and I would be overjoyed If I could tell her we were going to the world premiere. She is a huge fan of the series and would be so excited if she could go. It is one of my dreams, and one of hers. So I really hope that I can go to the world premiere. That we can go to the world premiere.

  • Cassie says:

    Why do you love The Hunger Games?
    I love The Hunger Games because the novels/movies inspire me to fight for everything I believe in. THG illustrates a world without freedom, full of fear and a widening gap between the rich and the poor. This is much like what our society is becoming… But THG gives me the confidence to fight back. To do anything I can to keep my freedom, to help everyone love and enjoy life! THG has taught me sacrifice, focus, diligence, fearlessness, and how to be a badass (among other things). It can make me smile and cry, laugh and scream. THG captures the complexities that are in life and makes them accessible, easy to understand, and available for the world. It has helped me to better understand my complex emotions, my fears, my hopes and dreams. And it has ignited the fire within me to chase after the things I want. THG has ignited the fire in so many people! That’s why I love it!! Because everyone has this fire within them, and THG brings it out in so many people. THG is changing the world, one boy/girl on fire at a time. We’re all catching fire and capable of lighting the whole world (in a very positive way hahaha).

    (2) If you win, who will you take with you to the premiere?
    My brother lives in a different state as me, but if he can afford it, I would do anything to take him. The movie theater in my hometown had free movie Tuesdays, and I would always go to them with Adam. It was our tradition, we’d go see a movie and talk in depth about it after. This past summer that theater got shut down, demolishing my chance of continuing our tradition. (I’d be home over Thanksgiving Break to see Catching Fire with Adam, but the theater isn’t there anymore!) Adam and I went to the THG midnight show together, and I would do anything to see the first showing I can with him again. That was one of the best nights of my life and the best memory I have with my older brother. To be able to go to the hollywood premiere with him would be everything to me. I haven’t seen him in a very long time, this would allow me to get the chance to reconnect with him and share our common love of THG. I miss my older brother!! Please let me continue this tradition. <3

  • Cassie says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it emphasizes the importance of standing up for what is right, and what our society may become like if we continue on this path that we are on.

  • I love the Hunger Games because popular culture really needed to be introduced to a strong character like Katniss. Girls in the media, whether it be films, magazines, tv shows, or billboards, tend to either be sexualized or innocent and passive. We hardly see a strong girl figure in the media, despite the fact that girls can be strong, empowered figures in everyday life. So my point is, the media finally has a more realistic girl figure to share with the world, and as book and film records show, people of all sexes and age groups enjoy the Hunger Games. If I were given the opportunity to attend the Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere, I would bring my boyfriend of nearly 4 years with me. He loves the Hunger Games as well!

  • Heidi says:

    I love the Hunger Games because of how strong Katniss is. She fights for her family and for what is right. And I would take my daughter because she had me enter in this and she is obsessed with the books

  • Sil says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it highlights the way that may people have been skewed by media and entertainment in the past few years. It’s an extreme look at the potential destruction that can be caused when entertainment takes precedence over humans themselves. I would take my younger sister with me, my very own version of Prim.

  • Maria Vera says:

    I would love to take my best friend because that’s the day of her birthday and we are both obsessed with this :)

  • Megan says:

    I love the hunger games because its the story of an underdog. Katniss show how strong people have to be. I would take my little sister, she’s my Prim.

  • Kayla Nuehring says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it’s an amazing story of sacrifice, family, loyalty, and it’s not all about love triangles and such like a lot of books now a days. IF I got the chance I would take my bestest friend, Amanda!

  • Lauren Cunningham says:

    I love The Hunger Games series. It taught me so much and it has Katniss, the best role model there is. It would mean so much to tell these people what this series has meant to me. If I was lucky enough to get picked I would bring my twin sister because like Katniss and Prim there is nothing I wouldn’t do for her.

  • Cindy Zurawski says:

    I love the entire series because of the lessons it has taught me and that I can immerse myself in the book and not listen to anyone else. It’s an amazing series and I would bring my daughter.

  • KT says:

    I love the Hunger Games because I think it gives a good message to teens and adults. First off the lead character of the film and series is Katniss and there are very few hero/heroine movies where females are the lead. I think it is important to have a story where the hero is a girl because there are so very few stories like that. Second, Suzanne Collins created a story that is so important in this day and age. People get so wrapped up in reality TV and she wrote a brilliant story about what would happen if reality TV went too far. The story has such a strong message and its so unique that it leaves people shocked and wanting more.
    I would take my BFF Katelyn Martinez with me! :)

  • I love Hunger Games because of it tells the story of a strong young woman, who can conquer the intense situations before her, while still maintaining integrity and femininity. Should I win, I would take my husband with me.

  • Grace Tobin says:

    The Hunger Games trilogy is the type of series you can read all in one weekend, at 14 or at 35. It’s written to be YA, but transcends the genre, touching very adult themes (many intensely relevant, both politically and culturally). But you don’t dwell on the contemporary ramifications, they serve to highlight, because you care about the story. They merely lend a sense of urgency to a compelling plot and rounded characters. No matter how sophisticated a reader you are, the YAness slips away. You could have memorized Gravity’s Rainbow and still loved The Hunger Games. The movie held up to even my intense scrutiny, I can’t wait for the next one. My little sister is four years younger than me, and I would do anything for her. I would absolutely bring her with me if I won.

  • I love the Hunger Games for a lot of reasons. First of all, it’s an amazing book series, with a strong independent lead female character. It teaches us about strength and courage and standing up for yourself. It has an amazing, unique plotline and an amazing cast!
    If I win tickets to the premiere, I would take my best friend Addie Garcia with me, a fellow Hunger Games fan!

  • I love the Hunger Games because it draws so many parallels between our world and the Districts. The Hunger Games shows us what exactly happens when we give up our political freedoms and simply rely on government for our sustenance. If I win I’m going to take my husband!

  • Ellie says:

    I love the Hunger Games because of how emotionally driven it is, and how you can connect with the characters. I would take my best friend Katherine since we both discovered The Hunger Games at around the sound time and are really big fans.

  • Regina Felix says:

    I personally love the Hunger Games because I had never read a page-turning book like this that I haven’t been able to break away from. The tale is heart wrenching, riveting, and thought provoking. Catching Fire was my favorite book of the trilogy overall and I can’t wait to see it. If I win I will bring along my friend Nickie who I just as excited and obsessed as I am about the Hunger Games! :0

  • If I won, it would be a dream come true. I have read the series three times over and it is my favorite of all time. If for no other reason, to have a chance to know that my reactions and amazement of the film can be heard and experienced by the incredible actors who brought my favorite story to life. I spent so many nights reading out loud to my boyfriend as we shared the thrill of it together. I would bring him. After all, who would Katniss be without her true love by her side?

  • Joey Snipes says:

    I love The Hunger Games because,It is the most Emotional,Exciting&romantic of our time&I would bring my aunt who understands my love&devotion for the series.

  • Lora Darby says:

    I love the Hunger Games because because my students became excited about reading when I introduced them to the series.

  • Gabrielle Rookard says:

    I love the Hunger Games because Peeta is hot.

    If I win, I will take my roommate Hannah Torrey.

    :)

  • Brittany says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it doesn’t shy away from the harshness of the story it’s trying to tell. It uses flawed, believable, complex characters you can connect with, and it doesn’t care if you necessarily like them. The scope goes beyond that, but that doesn’t mean you don’t feel an instant connection to them and what they’re going through. You go through it with them.

    I would take my fellow Tribute, Halee!

  • dumitr33 says:

    (1) Why do you love The Hunger Games?

    Discovering this series early on before all the publicity, I admired the story, morals, and environment the books portrayed. I loved the fact that the story of Katniss has the basic moral foundation of, “never give up”, which is one of the most important morals I or anyone could ever have was at the core of the series. I related to Katniss so much due to my rough past and constant battles while reading about Katniss’ experience in a futuristic world I was always fascinated with. It made me think about how I would respond to those same situations Katniss was in. When they announced the movie and I saw all the hype, I was filled with joy over how many people loved the Hunger Games to and I was the first one in line for the midnight premiere when it came out. I couldn’t believe how much the movie brought the ideas in my mind to life and the similarities between the two shocked me. All in all, I love the Hunger Games for the amount of heart, and overcoming of obstacles that it instills into people, and the fact that its the one Series and story that I can most relate to.

    (2) If you win, who will you take with you to the premiere?

    I would take a close friend who shares a fondness for the Hunger games like I do, who I would think deserves such an experience like this that would make them one of the happiest people in the world.

    P.S. to everyone:

    May the odds be ever in your favor!

  • Isabella Menichiello says:

    1) I love the Hunger Games because of how my heart jumps every time I think of it. It’s an incredible story and I’m just excited for once to have something that makes me happy! The Hunger Games is fantastic and I love any opportunity I get to celebrate it!
    2) I would take my sister with me because she and I are both totally insane!!! Nobody else understands at home!!!! :)
    May the odds be ever in your favor!

  • Preston Yeung says:

    I love hunger games because it connects with me on an emotional level. I am not a person to obsess over it but I think that it is unique in how it comes across by portraying the characters as real people in strange circumstances. Even though the future is far removed from ours, their reactions are how people of our day and age would go about a totalitarian government making the books relatable.

  • Bobbie Jo says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it’s so intense to me. I can watch the movie over and over again and still get excited. I actually had to read The Hunger Games book in school with my class and we all saw the movie together. It was really emotional for me because of when Rue died. It also emotional to me how Katniss can stand up for herself. Shes an icon and shows how to be a strong independent woman! I really loved that. I’m an all out die hard fan for The Hunger Games series and hope to someday meet the cast. Winning this contest would mean the world to me, but if i don’t win then congrats to the person that does win.

    I love the Hunger Games for the intricacy and excitement of the games, and the cause of the repressed and underdogs going up against a dictator government. I would take my daughter, Kristina, with me as my guest.

  • Gary H says:

    The Hunger Games was a refreshing change from the typical thriller or drama. Great acting and action and total believability. I am really looking to Catching Fire!

    I would love to bring my daughter with me, who absolutely loved Hunger Games.

  • Mary Stearns says:

    Jennifer Lawrence and Katniss Everdeen are two women who exemplify the type of person that I want my daughter to be one day. The Hunger Games is a franchise that my daughter has followed since she was twelve years old. As every book was released, she would shut herself up in her bedroom for hours, sometimes entire nights. From behind her bedroom door I would hear silence, and sometimes the occasional laugh as she immersed herself in the world of the Hunger Games. When Mockingjay was released, I drove her from store to store, looking for the novel that was simply sold out everywhere. The next day, we ventured to our local Target and finally found a copy of the book. That night, she stayed up and read the entire thing. I stayed up in the living room reading the Hunger Games, which she had finally persuaded me to read. At about four a.m., I heard a thump and then crying coming from her room. I opened her door to find her weeping on her bed, the novel apparently thrown against the adjacent wall. I asked her what the matter was, and she said something about how the trilogy had broken her heart. She weeped for a few more moments before she noticed the Hunger Games sitting in my lap. The tears dried up almost instantly and she interrogated me about where I was in the novel and how I was liking it, and then started “fangirling” about how amazing it was. The thing with the Hunger Games is that it was the first book series, the first literature, to make my daughter emotional, think about the way the world works, and learn important lessons that I felt I could never teach her. She became a young adult with the Hunger Games and has been inspired by Katniss and the rest of the characters in the series to become a better person, fight for what she believes in, and stand up for herself in the face of adversity. I love the Hunger Games because it made my daughter into the beautiful young lady she is today. The book series means the world to her, evident by how she comes home everyday ecstatic with a new piece of casting news, movie news, or debate she had with a friend at school over the Hunger Games. To be in the presence of the actors from the Hunger Games and venture to LA to see Catching Fire early would mean the world to my little girl. It is a gift that I alone could never give her. If I won these two tickets to the LA premiere of Catching Fire, I would take my daughter on a trip that she would remember and cherish forever.

  • Anastasia Berrier says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it’s a book about a girl, but the main plot is not the love story. It makes me think about things I wouldn’t otherwise think about, and I especially enjoy reading about a heroine who is deeply flawed and sometimes makes the wrong choice, but is good at heart. If I won, I would take my sister to the premiere.

  • I love the Hunger Games because it’s definitely a powerful story. One girl who brings together a world that’s been torn apart and offers hope to the masses. I love that the love story takes a backseat to the action and the rebellion. It was beautifully written and so far the first film has indeed done it justice! If I won I would take my best friend with me. She’s the only person I’d want next to me in the Quarter Quell!

  • Tawny says:

    Like all who have commented thus far, I too love the Hunger Games. However, I don’t have a profound thematic concept or persuasive “pick me” story to share. I only know that reading this series made me feel alive; alive in a way that I don’t think I would have otherwise experienced if not for Suzanne Collins. If I were to win, I’d take my best friend and fellow Hunger Games enthusiast, Roman!

  • I love the Hunger Games books and movies. These books are nothing like what I’ve read or watched before. I was so consumed into reading these books that I couldn’t stop. I felt so close to Katniss (the character) who had to endure so many hardships, challenges, and trying to save her life. We’ve all been through many challenges, hardships, and trying to hold onto our lives or our children’s lives. They are not all the same situations but everyone has hardships. What surprised me in the books is her fighting spirit. I didn’t expect her to be so strong, smart, and such a fighter. The fact that her character is a girl/woman also speaks volumes when reading. These books and movie and future movies are fantastic and I cannot wait to see them as they come out! Thank you and if I won, I would take my son or husband. Good luck to everyone and congratulations to the winner!

  • Marie Mounier says:

    (1) I love the Hunger Games because I read the books during a crestfallen time in my own life and the strength and determination of the main characters moved and inspired me to find my own inner strength. (2) If I win, I will take my sweetheart with me who I got to fall in love with the series as well. We will have a super blast in LA together. Thank you for your consideration!

  • Holly Franco says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it was one of the first books that really introduced me to the world of fiction. I never was a big reader until this book came along. It opened so many doors for me and made me into a HUGE book worm! This book consumed me and took over my life for a sold month. I could not put it down! Also I love Katniss’s character and he independence. She shows that women can be leaders (or mocking jays) and fearless!
    If I were to win this contest I would take my sister. She does so much for me and watches over me like a mother. I really do not know what I would do without her and she deserves to go out and have a little fun! She is also a CRAZY OBSESSED FAN… like me hahaha.

  • Erica Gomez says:

    I love the Hunger Games because I would do the same thing if that was my sister. Its a great story and by far, my favorite. I would take my sister with me to watch the premiere!

  • Lori Rael says:

    I love the Hunger Games because I think it offers an important perspective of our society’s obsession with reality TV. It is an inspiring story of hope, strength and love. If I won the contest, I would take my daughter to the premiere because this series has given her so much comfort through some very difficult times.

  • Kendra Cox says:

    I love the hunger games ever since my school librarian introduced me to the book in 2008. I waited excitedly for each one to come– the final book came out the summer before I left for college in 2010. Since then i have read all 3 repeatedly in between other novels. The HG has literally taken me out of my body and into a whole new world- just when I needed it too. I love the strong characters, twists in the storyline, and the details of panem fascinate me. If I won I would take my friend coral, because out of anyone I have ever met- she is the one who reminds me katniss the most.

  • Chelsea says:

    (1) Why do you love The Hunger Games?

    Easy. The Hunger Games is inspirational in ways that the Twilight or Harry Potter series fell short for me. Don’t get me wrong, most will find those books very entertaining, but the Hunger Games is more than just entertaining. Katniss is a strong female lead who stumbled upon this magnificent role of being her district’s hero. The difference, however, is that she earned it. She is noble in volunteering herself to be in the games, and then follows through with exemplifying the skills she essentially learned on her own. We, as readers, gained respect for her and can look to her as a solid leader more or less because she proves that anyone can step up and be a hero. The book inspires readers to stay true to who they are but fight for what they believe in, even if the odds are not in their favor.

    (2) If you win, who will you take with you to the premiere?

    I would take my boyfriend, Travis. Not only have I annoyingly given my personal commentary while watching the movie a thousand times over, but I am forcing him to read the books too. :-) Plus, I have a cardboard cut-out of Katniss that I like to hide and try to scare him… so I figure I should try and make redeem myself by making Hunger Games a positive experience for him.

  • Alex Gaughan says:

    I love the Hunger Games, because it is thrilling and I’m a girl so I love a good love triangle. It’s as simple as that.

    If I won I would take one of my best friends, either Paige or Alex. It would depend on who could make the trip.

  • My email is rachel.kloppe@gmail.com
    I love THG because it is not just a story for kids. The themes of justice, perseverance, bravery, and sacrifice are beautiful (even if in painful ways, like the death of favorite characters), and are relevant to our society today. They always will be. I read the books a few years ago, got the mockingjay tattooed on my arm, and I am in love with the books and films. Catching Fire is my favorite book of the trilogy and I am so excited to see it come to life – the arena, the complicated love between Katniss and Gale, the evolution of my favorite characters, and everything in between.

    • Oops, I forgot to say who I would bring! I would take my best friend of 8 years, Kelsey Haley, who has been with me on the whole THG thing since the beginning. We love the series so much, the actors involved, and want to meet them more than anything :)

  • Jordyn Cutforth says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it’s not only about a brave young woman who fights for what she believes in(which books used to be lacking) but she also fights for those she loves. This book has components that is appealing to both genders and most age groups. I started this series when it first came out and when I was young. I naturally fell in love with it and it has been a huge part of my life ever since. I am beyond excited for Catching Fire and Mockingjay Part 1 and Part 2.
    This summer has been really hard, my house/town was flooded(High River, Alberta, Canada) and my dad was hospitalized. Through all of this crap my mum has been there for me and has always supported me-even when I bawl my eyes out in public fangirling. If I was ever as lucky to win a pair of tickets I would take my mum because she would be my Katniss to my Prim.

  • Hannah Rand says:

    I am extremely obsessed with the Hunger Games. I originally found the book sitting in the library and started reading, and I haven’t stopped believing in the power of one girl with people around her to make a change.

    If I was chosen to go I would take my friend Sarah because she means the world to me and I would love to share this experience with her.

  • These books are absolute page turners- the love triangle makes me MAD!! I encourage everyone I meet to read it! I’ve been holding out on reading Mockingjay, but I can’t wait any longer!
    Jason King- you’re my red carpet companion!! :)

    I love the Hunger Games because not only is it a fast-paced, well written story, but it is one in which you can easily relate to the characters and you are genuinely rooting for them the whole time! If i won, I would take my sister, because she was the one who got me into the Hunger Games in the first place!

  • melanie williams says:

    I am an ultimate hunger games because this is such an original series. The emotion that is experienced in every chapter builds with the other. The relationship dynamic between characters and the way the story unfolds is so original but is so easy to relate to. Real characteristics are used and it would allow any reader to be able to identify with at least character. I also love the hunger games just because. I began to read them before they become all popular.

    Jenna Wedge would be my wing girl!

  • Hailey Wilson says:

    I love the Hunger Games series because it is a different world, but it still relates to our world on certain occasions. It has war, love, and conflicts. If I won tickets to the premiere I would take my friend Maddie because she is a great friend and I am pretty sure she would love to go to a red carpet premiere.

  • Janelle says:

    1) I love the costume design of the films and I’ve read each book MULTIPLE times! (2) I would take my little sister to the premiere because she is a BIG fan as well!

    I love The Hunger Games because the story is different than any other story I have ever read. I also love how it was a girl hero! It is very rare for there to be a heroione these days! I would bring my daughter because we love it together!

  • I love The Hunger Games because of its originality. I love how its based in the future but kind of tells a story of the present as well. Suzanne Collins is a fine writer and I commend her on her achievements with the book. I think the cast was also very well picked out and I can’t wait to see Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair.

    If I won this giveaway I’d probably take my mother or one of my sisters. No one around me is really a die hard fan so I can’t really take anyone else.

  • Youstina says:

    1) The Hunger Games means the world to me. The series is something I’ve been into for years and has helped me get through so much. I love it because it’s so different from any other book series. It has a dark feel to it but it’s also very sweet and loving and has the best characters ever. Finnick has inspired me to be a better person. He has been through so much and still he is so strong and still has faith in people. He loves and cares about his friends and he hasn’t stopped loving Annie. Even though he is not real, he gives me hope that good guys actually do exist. This series has been my escape for years, and any time I feel like crap, I pick up one of the books and just read. Going to the premiere would mean the absolute world to me.
    2) I would take my best friend to the premiere, who also loves the hunger games so much and has been following it just about as long as I have. She would die if I won these tickets for her.

  • Katie says:

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Hunger Games series! I have read all three books 4 times now! Each character goes through such an emotional journey in all three books. Whether its prim growing up from needing Katniss by her side to taking care of the people in district 13, Katniss figuring out who she loves and which boy she needs by her side, Peeta finding himself again, or Haymitch realizing whats truly important and how he truly does care for Katniss and Peeta. When I read the hunger games it gives me such strength and courage. I feel superior when I read about Katniss standing up for what she believes in, and doing whatever it takes to keep her family and loved ones safe. She doesn’t let anyone tell her what she can and can’t do and that’s what I love about her. She gives me the strength to stand up for what I believe in and what I think is right. This premiere would give me the amazing opportunity to see these characters on the big screen and the actors who portrayed these characteristics to give me the strength that I read about in the books. I would take my boyfriend with me to the premiere. He also loves the strength and courage that this series portrays and I’d love to share this amazing opportunity with him!

  • Carrie Ehrhardt says:

    The Hunger Games is amazing to me because of Katniss’s drive to protect her family and the ones she cares about. the entire message of the series is incredible and valuable as ever. If I win, I will take my daughter Laura.

  • Stephanie says:

    I absolutely love the Hunger Games because of Katniss’s determination and love for her family. I admire her willingness to take the place of Prim in the arena. I also love Katniss’s relationships with Gale and Peeta. I think that Gale is so supportive, and Peeta is so loving. He will always be there for Katniss, and love her no matter what. I think that Suzanne Collins brilliantly developed the characters. The book is so moving and interesting. I love the entire series, and have read it multiple times. The movies are fantastic, and I love the actors, especially Jennifer Lawrence. Going to this premiere would mean the absolute world to me. I treasure the entire book series, and am truly the number one Hunger Games fan. If I were to win, which would be the best thing of my LIFE, I would take my older sister. Thank you so much for this incredible opportunity. I really, really appreciate it! May the odds be ever in my favor. :)

  • Niel Santos says:

    Hunger Games is without a doubt my top favorite non-fictional trilogy! I love how characters interact and the thought process that Katniss actually goes through. The imagery in the whole series pops out to me and feels so vivid every time I read the book, especially the description of the arena in Catching Fire. It’s an intense thrill to actually have emotions when something happens to characters in this series. I hope they do Haymitch’s Hunger Game Flashback and if they do I hope they do it Justice! I would definitely bring one of my good friends, Perrin. He not only likes the book but he’s an aspiring actor and he’s just really into Jennifer Lawrence haha.

  • meganlreese says:

    I love the Hunger Games series because the stories are so innovative and the characters are realistic. If I won I would take my daughter, Cullyn.

  • Bianca says:

    I love the hunger games because it tackles the big issues in regards to Government control with the element of love as well. I am a huge fan of all the books and love the move adaptation just as much. If i won i would take my partner Candice

  • phoenix141 says:

    I like the hunger games because it offers a bit of everything: drama, action, romance. If I win I’ll be bringing my best friend Ashley.

  • Kate says:

    THG is my favorite series because it is something that could happen. But I see it as a story of hope, even though it is filled with sadness. I would take my daughter because she is the one who introduced me to the Hunger Games world

  • Megan says:

    I love the Hunger Games is the perseverance each character shows. Each one goes through something different and deals with it differently. I would take my little sister to the premiere, she’s my Prim.

  • janet Vazquez says:

    I love the Hunger Games because the story and characters are so captivating and relatable. I would take my sister, this is one of the only book series that we have both read.

  • hope says:

    I love the hunger games because of the strength Katniss exudes. its not just her face that makes her toothsome, its her selflessness, and her perseverance. katniss does not want the hunger games to change her, but the truth is that… it does. it ignites a spark that (no cleche intended) catches fire. she realizes she would rather die than let the people of panem be suppressed any longer by the capitol. if I won the 2 two tickets, I would take my very own little prim… my little sister casey… who I brought on to the series, and trust me, we will never jump off that wagon!

  • Sydney Wisniewski says:

    I love Hunger Games because it is one of those books you can not put down, the plot, the characters, the setting is all so real when you read it, it feels as if you are in district 12 with Katniss. I also love how they emphasis the characteristics of the cast and how brave and strong mentally and physically she is. Suzanne Collins did a great job making Katniss a role model for girls because I aspire to be Katniss Everdeen. I would take my dad to the premiere becasue we are the only two that read in the family and we share books as well. He has even read all my John Greens books.

  • Jerilyn says:

    Oh, that’s a toughie. I love THG for so many reasons! I must say, though, that there is one main reason. It’s the morale of the story that I love best. I love how Suzanne Collins put it through such a great, page-turning book. The morale is that power leads to insanity and that you never know what you have until it’s long gone. But, of course, that’s just two of the many morale’s. I also love how Suzanne made the characters be such great role models and idols for kids of all ages, although probably not too young because of the killing, fighting, and well, kissing. I can’t stand it when people say it’s all about the ‘love triangle’. No, it’s not. The Hunger Games Trilogy is not Twilight. Sorry, Twihards. It’s about power, strength, and care.
    Who would I take to the Premiere? Well, that’s easy. I would take my mom, since I don’t have any sisters and nobody else in my family cares for THG. But, in the off chance that I would win on two websites, I would take my two of my friends and my mom. We’re all such huge fans that I don’t know what would happen if we didn’t win. But if I did, and once I arrived, I would probably have to leave in an ambulance. I would probably have an anxiety attack from fangirling so hard. :)

  • madison asp says:

    i love the hunger games because suzzane collins is so discriptive and knows exactly what to write to keep people reading, i also love it because it has some truth to it: disasters have happened in the past and the past always repeits itself

    • madison asp says:

      and i would eather bring my best friend rikka or my dad

  • Sami Maguire says:

    I love the hunger games because without it I would be nothing. Thg had inspired me to write, read, act, follow my dreams, and be strong. If I won I would probably bring my best friend or my mom :)

  • Heloisa Oliveira says:

    I love The Hunger Games because even though it’s fiction, some those things happen in real life. We can see people fighting for their rights in Egypt right now. So it’s a story that teaches you to do the right thing, even when it’s so hard that it seems impossible. If I win, I’m taking my crazy friend Mariana with me because I can’t wait to see her face when Liam Hemsworth walks through us :P

  • Jessica Garcia says:

    I love the hunger games because I love the possibility of it being real life one day in the future and it gives me hope that if it were to one day happen, we will [hopefully] have someone like Katniss, Peeta, Gale, Haymitch, etc. to lead us to victory against the government. If i win I would take my little sister with me. Truth be told, it’s my fault she’s as obsessed as I am lol

  • Dennis A. says:

    I love the hunger games because of the complex world and characters that Suzanne Colin’s created and how deep each character is and how emotion provoking the trilogy is. It’s one of he most well written books that I have ever read. It has chafed my life and outlook on literature entirely.

  • I love The Hunger Games as much as a directioner loves One Direction. Whenever someone mention something THG or the tiniest bit related to it, I totally freak out and can’t stop talking about how much I love The Hunger Games. I would take my father (this series being the first thing he read in years) or my older sister (who is equally obsessed).

  • Ashlynn Wipf says:

    Watching The Hunger Games for the first time was honestly, the most emotional experience I have ever had watching a movie. I had no background knowledge about what was going to happen and was constantly holding my breath and sighing with relief with each scene as the movie played out before my eyes. When it was over, I told my friends that there was no way that I could watch the next film, let alone read the books. I was so blown away by the emotional stories and the performances of the actors that I couldn’t sleep that night…I had to know what was going to happen to the characters from Panem! The movie led me to the books and it was an instant page turner. I loved every second of the emotional roller coaster that kept me on the edge of my seat through all three books. Katniss and Peeta’s journey helped me reflect on my own personal journey through life, allowed me to explore my reasoning behind things I value in life, and showed me areas that I could stand up for what I believe in and become a “mockingjay” when someone of some group needs a voice (especially as an educator). I am thankful that I had the opportunity to both watch the movie and read the stories with my best friend and would love to repay the favor by attending the premier with her!

  • Katie Aymin says:

    (1) Why do you love The Hunger Games? I love the Hunger Games because of the themes and the wonderful characters that Suzanne Collins created.

    (2) If you win, who will you take with you to the premiere?
    Probably, my good friend Hannah who really likes the Hunger Games too.

    katieaymin@gmail.com

  • I love The Hunger Games because, it’s a story about rising against wrong, even when death is knocking, to prove that right will eventually prevail…. This story ends with a promise; a promise that justice may just come along in the flames of Catching Fire.

    I would take one of my friends, Paulina, who is also a huge fan of the series!

  • Tiffany Butts says:

    1. I love Hunger Games because it teaches people what family, loyalty, courage, and love really are. I love how the characters are willing to literally sacrifice themselves for the greater good. If I win, I would take my best friend Christy.

  • I love the Hunger Games because I read the books and I was excited to see them come to life on the big screen. The books and movies are just fun and exciting. If I win tickets to the premiere, I would take my best friend Melanie! I have known this girl for 8+ years and we are both trying to win tickets to this shindig!!!

  • Cody Cutforth says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it shows that teenagers can start a change in things that they believe in.

  • Pawel Turel says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it shows that everything is possible even if you thing at the begining that there are no chances to win. If you act smart and really want something you can get it. I really love every second of the movie and can’t wait for next parts. For the premiere I would take my best friend. That will be my best gift.

  • madison asp says:

    i love the hunger games because there is a lot of emotion and suspense. also because its about a girl willing to make huge sacrifices for the most important people in her life. i guess the real reason i love the hunger games is because i can relate to katniss a lot. not about relationships with boys or living in a dystopian future but about having someone close enough to me that i would take there place in a fight to the death, being pulled away from someone close to me, having not many close friends, being the oddball that only a handful of people understand and so on. i have read the hunger games 7 times and every time i read it i feel like i get lost in a different world as katniss and i cant believe any one who likes the hunger games for its violence because theirs so much more to it than that but some people i know try to convince me all it is is violence but there wrong and i hope if i go to the premiere that will prove me right

  • Brittany Nix says:

    I LOVE the Hunger Games because it shows how our society only shows the good thing like how the capital citizens only saw the good thing in the games while the others districts knows the truth. Also the Hunger Games taught me that you have to fight for what you want in life you have to fight for what you believe in and be the model for people who can’t fight . If I won the contest I would bring my twin/ BEST FRIEND savanah because she shares my obsession with the Hunger Games. She read the books with cried with me when Finnick and Primrose died and also when Rue died :( but it would really mean a lot if I got picked please put the odds in my favor and vote for me

  • Andrea Carrizales says:

    I love The Hunger Games because the characters are not some legendary heroes. Each of them from Octavia, to Peeta, to President Coin has an emotional depth that feels very truthful to them. They think and feel like people you could simply encounter on the street, amazing people with great hopes, fears, illusions and some or other damage as well. I also like the portrayal of the society, whether it is the extravagant Capitol or the shy District 12. If I have the opportunity of going to the premiere I’d take my dad because I know I can count on him and he knows how much I love the story and how important it is to me (also because I doubt he’d let me go to California by myself!)

  • munchie11 says:

    The Hunger Games made me fall in love with series again, I hadn’t read one that I loved since I read Harry Potter and Twilight. The story is so unique and the characters each are all so different and memorable. Catching Fire is still my favorite sequel, even after all the series’ I have read since. It especially had so many twists and turns that I did not see coming. Suzanne Collins is an amazing writer and knows how to piece words together beautifully. Some of my all time favorite quotes come from these books. If I were to win I would go with my Mom because we have taken many trips together and this would be one to remember for sure.

  • Kayla says:

    I love the Hunger Games because the plot is unlike I’ve ever read, and it is above all else, an amazing character driven story!

  • Carolina Ferrada says:

    I love The Hunger Games because the history is so unique and When I read it was kind of Magical, because It makes me wonder about everything, before I read this amazing adventure I didn’t liked to read, I hate it. And when I read it just changed my life completely, I don’t know how to explain my obsession with this trilogy.
    I’d like to take my sister, because she showed me the wonderful world of reading.

  • josefina says:

    i love the hunger games because i love the story, i am a big fan i have read the three books in english and spanish and i have seen the movie almost twenty times, i think the story is really original and engaging. if i win the tickets, i would take my best friend Maile, that is like a sister to me.

  • 1.) I love the hunger games because it is unlike anything else. The story is captivating and i love the characters. I love it because for a moment a book and movie take you away from reality and all your problems and just entice you and make you feel connected to the characters.2)If i got the tickets I would take my bestfriend who is also in love with the hunger games.

  • Emily says:

    I love The Hunger Games. Wait, what am I saying, I don’t love The Hunger Games. Love is an understatement. I can’t even say how much I care for this series. I have tons of reasons of why The Hunger Games is my favourite series. Its a beautiful masterpiece filled with compelling pieces of life, and love. War and justice. The story is so scary, and brutal, yet so real, and possible? It makes you think, “Wow, we can end up like that one day?” Its so gripping, how a group of people, can bring down an entire government. The series is so powerful. Its true how love, can change the rules. Katniss, a character smothered in death, and survival, always walks through the ashes, in glorious victory. She inspires so many people. And then you realize, shes fictional? If only a true underdog like Katniss can take footsteps on this earth. And Peeta, oh Peeta. I can’t even describe how much I love Peeta. He’s beyond incredible. People says he’s weak. But without Peeta, Katniss wouldn’t be alive. When he screamed at her to go, so Cato wouldn’t kill them both after the tracker jackers exploded, The bread, etc. Without Peeta, Katniss would’ve never pulled out those berries. And without the berries, there would be no rebellion, no war, no freedom. So even though Peeta isn’t the most vicious competitor, he is one fighter, for him, and Katniss. Suzanne Collins has written this trilogy with power, emotion, depth. All these characters, Gale, Prim, Finnick, Peeta, Haymitch, Cinna, Effie, Katniss, we learn to care and deeply love them. Creating a bond full of tears, laughs, and gaping mouths. I love The Hunger Games. I know I can never tell you or express how much I love it, I know theres no point in trying to tell someone how much I seriously adore these books and movies. Because I could literally go on forever, I’m serious. Only I will know. But that’s okay, I’m good with sobbing in a corner alone and talking to myself about how gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence is.

    • Emily says:

      I forgot to say. Please don’t take this out or count it as entering twice. I’m with the comment above (which I’m replying.) PLEASE. I BEG YOU. I NEED TICKETS TO THIS PREMIERE TO MEET JENNIFER AND JOSH AND LIAM AND BREATHE THE SAME AIR AS THEM AND WATCH THE MOVIE.Im truly sorry for forgetting this question. If I got tickets I would take my mom, because she has to put up with me telling her every single piece of information that comes our revolving The Hunger Games. (Also I forced her to read the book, and shes enjoying it so far, so she would like to go.)

  • Jessica says:

    She became the beacon of hope.

    I love the book and the movie and all that Katniss stands for. Her bravery and strength are characteristics that I try to copy each day of my life.

    I would take my friend, who is also a big Hunger Games fan.

    • Ivan says:

      I love the hunger games for a variety of reason.The series gives real depth to the characters.Latinas has nearly lost everything she values and she still finds the strength and courage to fight for what is right.Also the passion and heart makes the plot into a story that has captured my attention and love. If I was picked I would take my mother because she is my very own version of Katniss

  • Amber says:

    I love the Hunger Games because of how realistic it could be, given our society today. That might sound like a strange reason to like the series; after all, it’s not exactly a reason that’s full of joy and positivity. However, I believe the horrors described in the series can and do open our eyes to how far we should let our government take control over us.

    I also love it for the usual reasons- the love triangle between Katniss, Peeta, and Gale (Team Peeta!), the different districts bringing a sense of identity to its fans (District 3 for the win!), the excitement of the plot, and the colorful array of characters present in the story as well, not to mention the emotional roller coaster it takes us on.

    If I win, I would take my friend Jessica, who is one of the biggest Hunger Games fans I have ever met, and she loves the cast.

  • Gwen Hardy says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it is so unique. All the characters are so important and have so much to offer! Katniss is a great protagonist, with such an empowering personality. Peeta is obviously the lovable character of the story. He’s just the right amount of sweetness in the dark world of Panem. Gale brings so much masculinity and makes you feel safe. Finnick (by far my favorite character) is just so perfect! He brings the humor into gloomy situations and can always cheer anyone up. I also loved the detail of the books. No matter where I am, whenever I read any book from the trilogy, I’m instantly transported to the world of Panem. I feel like I am there with the characters, experiencing what they are experiencing. If I was able to go to the premiere, I would take my daughter Paige. She is a huge fan of the books, and was the person who introduced the story to me. Her entire room is covered in THG posters and even spent fifteen hours waiting in Los Angeles for the mall tour. The books were there for her when she was in a tough part of her life, and I would love to be able to take her to the premiere. Also, her sixteenth birthday is October 1st, and this would be the ultimate birthday present!

  • Diana says:

    Love the Hunger Games because I adore the characters. Literally went through the entire series in a week and had to reread to go through the emotional roller coaster again. The films are just as amazing and touching. Katniss is a huge role model especially when there are so few female protagonists in young adult fiction. I especially sympathized with her protectiveness of Primrose.
    Would definitely take my little sister who introduced me to the series (or rather wouldn’t stop talking about it until I read them) and who is also a huge Katniss fan.

  • Jennifer says:

    The Hunger Games is the only series that breaks my heart but puts light back into my eyes. I love them so much because I can finish the series once and pick them up again and have a whole new view upon them.
    If I can win these tickets I would definitely take my friend Zuleica because she was the ONLY ONE of all the people I convinced to read the series to camp out with me for The Hunger Games premiere. ^_^

  • Dianne says:

    I lover the Hunger Games because each character is a strong character in their own way. If I win I would take my sister because she got me to read the books!

  • Chelsea says:

    I love The Hunger Games because it’s a very powerful story with a beautiful narrative, and carried by an inspiring heroine. Katniss has certainly inspired me in lot of ways, and I can’t read the trilogy enough times. It’s the perfect allegory for our generation. If I won, I would bring my brother Cody because he’s a fan too.

  • Mariela Velez says:

    WHAT IS THERE NOT TO LOVE? ITS A book talking about our current society disguised as a fiction young adult novel. HAS BLOWN MY MIND. if i get the tickets ill the second biggest fan of THG in the world…my sister (im the first :) )

  • Elyse Haugh says:

    I love the hunger games because it’s so different from anything I have ever read. The entire idea of it is just astounding, but seems plausible all at the same time. I also love how every chapter has a mini cliffhanger at the end and keeps you wanting more. The characters are so lovable and it’s hard not to get addicted to the books and movie. I will take my fiance with me to the premiere if I get the chance too, I have converted him into a Hunger Games admirer (:

  • Megan Holmes says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it’s a book series that speaks to all generations. Katniss is a strong female heroine who I can look up to and I think it’s amazing that we finally have a legitimate female heroine in movies today. I love these books so much and I’m a HUGE fan of anything related to the Hunger Games!! If I won these tickets to the premiere, I’d take my twin sister with me since she’s a huge fan of THG as well :D

  • 4LoveIsStronger says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it’s so much more than a cute romantic YA book series. It deals with so many political and social issues, and I can really learn so much about the world we live in just by reading the series.
    If the odds are in my favor, I would take my best fried who’s also a tribute with me to the premiere!
    Thank you for holding this contest!!

  • Sym says:

    I love the hunger games because it brings me together. I would take my sis.

  • Scons says:

    I like the hunger games because it makes me happy. I would take my brother.

  • Moriah says:

    I love the hunger games because it has a powerful female protagonist and deals with poignant social and political issues

  • CalebWw says:

    I love the hunger games cause of the people I’ve met

  • Molly Holmes says:

    I love the Hunger Games because the characters have so much depth and they illustrate a story that’s both beautiful and heart wrenching all at the same time. If I won, I’d bring my twin sister because she’s as much of a fan as me!

  • Kevin says:

    I love the hunger games because it is one of the few young adult novels that focuses on a female and her adventures instead of a male. It’s filled with tons of wonderful themes that can teach us life lessons and give us wonderful memories! If I were to win th tickets I would take my best friend who also loves the hunger games so we could freak out over it together!

  • Kelli C. says:

    (1) The Hunger Games has meant a lot to me since I decided to read the books a few months before the first movie was released. One of the strongest impacts on me has been the clear and core-shaking condemnation of violence. Before, I thought “violence is bad” in a kind of cartoonish way, but these books opened my eyes to how damaging war and violence are, and paved the way for me to see how this is happening in the world today, from Afghanistan to Palestine and beyond. Reading the books prepared me to start learning about how privilege works (the people of the Capitol vs. the people in the districts) and how the poor and their labor are exploited by the rich and powerful, both in Panem and today. This is just a short summary but the issues in The Hunger Games are just as relevant to us readers and so I love these books for bringing awareness to them. I also love them because in many ways I can relate to Katniss and I am so happy to have these books to cherish. I also love them because of the love between Katniss and Prim and their sisterhood.

    (2) If I were able to go to the premiere, I would most likely bring my best friend. She’s been going through a lot of difficult times lately and I think if I were able to bring her it would help give her some relief and excitement about life.

  • Jennifer Yen says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it’s plot is different from most other popular novels. It appeals to female and males, to teenagers and adults. I love that it is a strong female heroine leading the story and I love that Suzanne Collins created a character that is so complex and realistic, in that she has many emotions that she’s not just happy or sad, but she as well gets scared, and feels guilt and is selfish yet selfless at the same time. I love that though there is still a love plot line between Katniss and the boys, but that the most important love in this story is the love between families and society. Suzanne Collins creates plot twists that keep us at the edge of our seat and doesn’t just write what we expect she would write. Her form of writing creates so much suspense that it has influenced many other authors. And lastly, though it is not the last reason why I love the trilogy, the story emphasized on issues in our world today, and through the entertaining postmodern literature, we (especially teenagers) become more aware of what is happening in our society which hopefully can lead us to take action to prevent our World from becoming like the World we read in the books.

    If I were so lucky and fortunate to be able to attend the premiere, I would bring my little sister. She is a thousand times the fan I am and she was the one that got me into this series. She is the most wonderful sister anyone can ask for and I would love to be able to make her senior year the most memorable. Ten years from now she won’t remember what she learned in chemistry class, but she will hopefully get to remember the day she got to go the the premiere of Catching Fire.

  • Andrew Harper says:

    I love the Hunger Games because it appeals to all age groups and genders. I also find it a good book to discuss with my friends and even my family! I feel like this book is a lot more mature than it may look to a younger reader because it deals with the problems with reality TV today. I feel like it almost predicted people’s reactions to this season of Big Brother 15, where there were people bullying and being racist. And you see so many people saying “I want Aaryn (a contestant on the show) to go die in a well or Amanda (another contestant) to go fall in a ditch somewhere.” And this is exactly what Suzanne Collins draws out attention to in The Hunger Games, that we take reality television too far and that the people that do bad stuff on TV don’t deserve to be treated the way people treat them over the internet. And that is also why I love the Hunger Games because it also helps teach the younger audience and the older audience to not bully others and to not get so drawn into reality television that you forget about treating other people with respect.

    If I were to win the tickets to the premiere I would take my older sister Rachel because we are both obsessed with the Hunger Games and I know that it would make both of our days to win these tickets. And my sister has basically been there for me for my entire life (she is about 7 years older than me) and it would be great to give back to her just a little of what she has given to me throughout my life.

    Thank you!
