Confession: I’m kind of a Hunger Games fangirl. If you’re not already familiar with the gripping trilogy of young-adult sci-fi novels, you will be soon, because it’s about to get Harry Potter huge. I saw another woman my age reading the second book in the series alone at a bar the other day. She’d taken the dust jacket off, but wasn’t fooling me. And who’d want to hide their fandom anyway when you can sport it with cool goods, like this crochet pop art mockingjay blanket?

Superfan Shylah Addante puts her passion for the books into yarn, and the results are always amazing. You can check out the other Panem-inspired blankets she’s created at DeviantART and purchase some from her Etsy store. (Provided that other fans like yours truly don’t snap them up first.) Seriously, if this post makes no sense to you, get a move on and read those books before the first film adaptation comes out in March 2012! And if it does make sense, “May the odds be ever in your favor!”

    Ok, I started The Hunger Games the other night. I'm only a few chapters in which means it hasn't consumed my life just yet. I think it will get to that point starting tonight. So expect some "OMG I stayed up until 5 a.m.! It's so good!" comments on this post soon.

      I swear I read them all back to back in about two days. I had serious dark circles under my eyes but it was worth it.

    Oh, do not get me started about the movie casting. Or do, but be prepared for some rantin' and ravin'… ;)
