Extra! Extra! Catching Fire and More!

Extra! Extra! is my weekend post featuring brand new additions to my TBR pile as well as a summary of what's new on the blog.

This weekend I'm linking to Stacking the Shelves @ Tynga's Reviews or to Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. 


Catching Fire opened yesterday -- I'm excited! I haven't seen it -- yet.

 I set up a little Catching Fire party and you are invited:

My centerpiece includes a fiery cape -- an old Katniss Halloween costume, plus some peppermints, sugar cubes and bloody roses. Can you figure out the significance of the items? Oh, and I have these flower cookies too..

Have you seen the movie? If so tell me what you thought!


Those are the prizes for a US winner. International winner has different choices described in the post.
