In Which I Show You What I Find to be Inspirational and The Hunger Games and Other Stuff

Okay, so I haven't been able to read anything AT ALL since I've been busy with the usual and the fact that most of the books that I want to get come out in the next month or two.(Not Rachel Hawkin's Spellbound, though!  It comes out NEXT WEEK!  Squee!)  Anyway, although I have no review for a book, I thought I might as well post something.  And that something happens to be pictures and the Hunger Games.First off: Pictures that inspire me.

 I made this one^ on my iPod.

Don't they just get those creative juices flowing?  They do for me, at least.
And now for some Hunger Games talk.
I recently read the books over the summer for my summer reading.  As you know, I'm not a big dystopian fan, but everybody kept telling me how awesome it was.  So, I borrowed it from a friend and read all three of them in about three days' time.  They were just that awesome.  And as most of you all know, The Hunger Games is going to be a movie.  (It's coming out this month!)  So excited.  But then, I came across this:
Yes, this is indeed The Hunger Games nail polish.  I want it sooo bad!  Just look at all those colors!  I'm absolutely in love with Smoke and Ashes and Luxe and Lush.  But then, I did a little more research of HG memorabilia and found an entire etsy store dedicated to The Hunger Games.  Check it out. 
And here's another thing to check out.  This is a book called Croak written by Gina Damico.  Lookie!  It's absolutley hilarious!  Plus, I cannot wait for this book to come out!  Not only does it look awesome, but I read the synopsis for it, and it sounds like a great read.

Sixteen-year-old Lex Bartleby has sucker-punched her last classmate. Fed up with her punkish, wild behavior, her parents ship her off to upstate New York to live with her Uncle Mort for the summer, hoping that a few months of dirty farm work will whip her back into shape. But Uncle Mort’s true occupation is much dirtier than that of shoveling manure.
He’s a Grim Reaper. And he’s going to teach her the family business.
Lex quickly assimilates into the peculiar world of Croak, a town populated entirely by reapers who deliver souls from this life to the next. Along with her infuriating yet intriguing partner Driggs and a rockstar crew of fellow Grim apprentices, Lex is soon zapping her targets like a natural born Killer.
Yet her innate ability morphs into an unchecked desire for justice—or is it vengeance?—whenever she’s forced to Kill a murder victim, craving to stop the attackers before they can strike again. So when people start to die—that is, people who aren’t supposed to be dying, people who have committed grievous crimes against the innocent—Lex’s curiosity is piqued. Her obsession grows as the bodies pile up, and a troubling question begins to swirl through her mind: if she succeeds in tracking down the murderer, will she stop the carnage—or will she ditch Croak and join in?
 And guess what?  It comes out this March 20th!  Like I said earlier, all the books I want to read have yet to come out.  What is this madness?  As a sidenote, I have to say, being a book lover gives you great patience.  Lots and lots of it.
Another book that I'm having a hard time waiting for would be The Girl in the Clockwork Collar by Kady Cross.  If you have not read the first book(The Girl in the Steel Corset), I suggest you do.  It's steampunk awesomeness at its best.  Also, Rift by Andrea Cremer.  That looks--I know it's just going to be amazing.
Well, there's more books, but I don't feel like boring you all with it.  Is there any books you'd like to read, but hasn't come out yet?
