Before the Oscars tonight, I wanted to write about the truly groundbreaking movie that I will be most pulling for. The first movie in a while that I didn't feel the desire to check my phone the entire time. No, it's not La La Land. Or even Moonlight. It's Hidden Figures.
When I initially started thinking about what I wanted this blog's first review to be, I decided that I wanted it to be something in pop culture that had resonance, but was fairly recent in readers' minds. Something that everyone was familiar with, so that they could focus on feeling out what the tone of this blog was going to be, but that I could-hopefully-give a fresh take on. Eventually, I knew exactly what this first review was going to be about. The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins.
