We were invited to participate in a 13 blog tour to celebrate and highlight the release of the final book in Suzanne Collin’s trilogy, The Hunger Games. In exchange for hosting one day of blog content, we were given a badge (look in the sidebar) and the right to giveaway something neat related to the trilogy on our posting day, August 11. To get into the spirit of things, we decided to redo our blog theme for the month. You know, because we are District 5 for the month of August. You can visit the official facebook page for more details about the entire blog tour.
District 5 is shrouded in secrecy. Well, maybe not secrecy, exactly. It might be more accurate to describe us as a not very oft mentioned District. What we do know about District 5 resembles an afterschool special cautionary tale. Our tributes, the children we send to battle and ultimately die for us and the Capital, have all been killed. One was a drunk speared by Finnick and subsequently died (you can’t survive a spearing by Finnick without dying in one fashion or another). Another stole poisoned berries from Peeta and ate them and subsequently, obviously, died. I’m thinking that getting speared is a much better way to go.
Look, we know what the outcome of the Hunger Games are. Death and more death. It’s not like we are looking to send our best and brightest. But the moral of District 5 is that if you drink and you steal, you will die. Learn and live folks. Come and visit us on the 11th to learn more cautionary tales, engage in a shipper war (Team Gale! Team Peeta! Team Gale!), and try to nab a one of a kind Hunger Games item.
