Welcome to Week Nineteen of Flashback Fridays where the old and new collide on everything from books to movies to first loves to favorite vacations. This week we're flashing back to Tuesday's release of Mockingjay, the final installment of the Hunger Games trilogy.
I have to admit I'm a late Hunger Games reader. I actually only read the first book two weeks ago. I waited because I wanted to be able to read all three at one time. I have to say it was well worth the wait, and I immediately fell in love with Katniss, Peeta, and the series. I think it's message of love, sacrifice, courage, first love, and determination is truly inspiring for both teens and adults. I'm thrilled they will be making a movie version. So, after the readathon on Tuesday, it was only fitting that we pay a little homage to the series.

Wanna try your own hand at the Hunger Games? Then you can purchase Training Days: The Hunger Games Board Game. (Peeta not included)
It seems that having "teams", aka a love triangle, is the hip thing in YA literature. I mean, we have Team Edward and Team Jacob. And of course, there's the argument of whether you are Team Peeta or Team Gale. That got me thinking of potential "teams" in classic literature....
So tell us your Hunger Games memories....what "team" are you?
