Jasmine over at Flip that Page created this fun Hunger Games inspired survey in honor of the recent release of the Catching Fire movie! Questions are based on the districts from the world of The Hunger Games as well as the tributes. Feel free to join in on the fun on your own blog!
Industry: Luxury Items
Favorite book involving royalty: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. They become kings and queens at the end! How awesome is that?!
Industry: Masonry and Weapons
Favorite book on war: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Feels!
Industry: Electronics and Technology
Favorite science fiction book: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. It does exactly as sci-fi should: causes you to reflect on humanity.
Favorite beach read (however you define one!): The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater, because it takes place on a beach and I think would be a good beach read.
Favorite book involving superhuman/supernatural characters: Pivot Point by Kasie West is the closest I have gotten to reading about superhumans, so there you go.
Industry: Transportation and Healing
Favorite road-trip/self-discovery book: Finding Alice by Melody Carlson. It involves a mini road trip and a LOT of self-discovery.
Industry: Lumber and Wood
Favorite book with a wilderness/dystopian setting: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Duh.
Industry: Fabrics and Textiles
Favorite book cover: I think I have to agree with Jasmine’s choice of The One by Kiera Cass because OMG! Look at it!
And a runner-up (because I love me some covers):
Favorite under-hyped book: I think What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang is a little under-hyped in the YA world so I’ll go with that.
Favorite book involving animals: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe again. Centaurs! Talking lions and beavers and all sorts of things!
Industry: Farming and Agriculture
Favorite fictional setting: Narnia from the Chronicles of Narnia.
Industry: Coal Mining
Rock solid favorite (from concluded series): The Hunger Games.
Central seat of government
Favorite book with a political agenda: So I don’t say THG again (at least for now), I’ll go with Divergent by Veronica Roth.
District 1: Cashmere and Gloss
Favorite fictional siblings: Valentine and Ender in Ender’s Game. I enjoyed the movie but it really didn’t do their relationship justice.
District 2: Cato
Favorite bad-boy character: Captain Thorne from Scarlet, because he’s snarky and hilarious.
District 3: Beetee and Wiress
Favorite genius/geeky character: Why can’t I think of someone who fits this bill other Beetee?! There must be someone! I’ll just say Beetee I guess.
District 4: Finnick Odair
Favorite swoon-worthy hero: Is Prince Kai in Cinder a hero? I think he will be. I’ll go with him.
District 5: Foxface
Favorite mysterious character: I’m going to say The Giver from The Giver. He’s pretty mysterious.
District 6: The Morphlings
Favorite secondary character: I can’t pick one! Just read this post.
District 7: Johanna Mason
Favorite female character: I can’t decide between Cinder from Cinder and Elliot from For Darkness Shows the Stars! They’re both strong-willed ladies who stand up for themselves but aren’t too rough around the edges either.
District 11: Rue
Favorite fictional kid: Rudy from The Book Thief. *cries*
District 12: Peeta Mellark and Katniss Everdeen
Favorite fictional couple: Peeta and Katniss?! Sorry that’s unoriginal, but it’s true!
The Capitol: President Snow
Favorite villain (to kill): Seriously… it’s Snow. He’s one evil dude.
Share your favorites in the comments, or create your own post!
YAY! HAHA I can definitely feel the Hunger Games lovin! And WOOHOO for The One’s cover, and killing president Snow XD Oh, and I definitely think Cinder and Prince Kai (he IS a hero! For me at least :D) are amazing characters 🙂 Haven’t watched Ender’s Game but I’m thinking maybe I should. Anyway, love the answers Amy, thanks for participating <3
Seriously, The Hunger Games is just the bomb. I thought the Ender’s Game movie was good for the period of time they had to work with. Thanks for creating the survey, Jasmine!
I wish I’d seen this before I decided what to write for today’s blog post! What a great idea! And I love The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe!! Did you like the film as well as the book?
Well you can still do it on your blog any time!
The movie was really good… I don’t think I love it as much as the book but it’s close. I thought The Dawn Treader was a good adaptation too but Prince Caspian was pretty meh compared to the book.
Prince Caspian was a pretty poor adaptation! I think I almost feel asleep watching that one!
That cover for The One is pretty gorgeous. I mean, it looks like a cake and makes me want to eat it! <3 Wow, I can't believe I forgot that Thorne is a bad boy character! He's easily my favorite!!
Awww, Rudy was so adorable in the Book Thief movie! (Have you seen it yet?!?!)
It does look like cake! Yum!
No I haven’t! It just came to our local theater last week and I haven’t had the time yet! Have you?
I saw it on Saturday and it was awesome. I cried. And I’m not so sure I even cried while reading the book! I think it was seeing the characters come to life that did me in. <3
That’s understandable! I hope I’ll get to see it while it’s still in theaters!
