Have you ever finished a book and said “Man, I wish I could ________ like that?” Bookish Bucket List is a semi-regular feature for the things I’ve put on my bucket list and the books that made me do so.

Title: The Hunger Game (Hunger Games #1)

Author: Suzanne Collins

Summary: [from GoodReads]

Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don’t live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

Bucket List Entry: Learn Archery

Why:

We’ve all read The Hunger Games and I’m pretty sure we’d all agree that Katniss is one kick-butt chick. Normally I’m a pacifist. I’m totally against violence, and I can barely stand to be in the same room as a gun, much less touch one. But there’s something about the simplicity of archery that makes it seem really cool! While I hope never to be put in a terrible situation like hers (because frankly I would die within 10 minutes) I do really wish I could use a bow and arrow. Maybe someday!

  1. Love this – and I wouldn’t mind learning archery too.

  2. A friend of mine’s daughter does archery. She really likes it! I’m sure I’d find SOME way to injure myself … though I do like it’s a sport that doesn’t require too much of me. :)
