I read the book; "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins, and I absolutely fell in love with the book. Very original, and so breath taking...
I tend to highlight my favourite quotes/sayings/words when I read. <3 I left the page numbers so I know where to find them.
-------

"We could do it, you know,"
"What?"
"Leave the district. Run off. Live in the woods. You and I, we could make it." (pg. 9)

"Gale and I agree that if we have to choose between dying of hunger and a bullet in the head, the bullet would be much quicker." (pg. 17)

"Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be /ever/ in your favor!" (pg. 19)

"How odd you two find it amusing. You know your mentor is your lifeline to the world in these Games. The one who advises you, lines up your sponsors and dictates the presentation of any gifts. Haymitch can well be the difference between your life and death!"
Just then, Haymitch staggers into the compartment. "I miss supper?" he says in a slurred voice. Then he vomits all over the expensive carpet and falls in the mess.
"So laugh away!" (pg. 47)

"He hasn't accepted his death. He is already fighting hard to stay alive." (pg. 60)

"Katniss, the girl who was on fire." (pg. 67)

"I don't think it's going to work out. Winning...won't help in my case."
"Why ever not?"
"Because...because...she came here with me." (pg. 130)

"Rue, who when you ask her what she loves most in the world, replies, of all things, "Music"." (pg. 211)

"And I said, ‘A coal miner? Why did she want a coal miner if she could’ve had you?' And he said, ‘Because when he sings…even the birds stop to listen.’" (pg. 300)

"One way or another, dead or alive, I have the feeling I'll escape today." (pg. 326)

"I can feel them pause curiously at the sound of my voice, listening for more. I repeat the notes in the silence. First one mockingjay trills the tune back, then another. Then the whole world comes alive with the sound.
"Just like your father,"
"That's Rue's song, I think they remember it." (pg. 329)

"He's fighting it, probably more for me than for him, and it's hard because unconsciousness would be its own form of escape." (pg. 339)

"I am pleased to present the victors of the Seventy-fourth Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark! I give you - the tributes of District Twelve!" (pg. 345)

"And now I know. It's because you have no choice." (pg. 348)

"I seem to be in a strange, continual twilight." (pg. 350)

"Ecstatically." (pg. 353) [I like how that word sounded...so I highlighted it. xD]

"I am still the "girl on fire."" (pg.354)

"He's still smiling when he settles the second on my head, but his eyes, just inches from mine, are as unforgiving as a snake's." (pg.364)

"But then, in the tree, everything changed,"
"Why do you think that was?"
"Maybe...because for the first time...there was a chance I could keep him." (pg. 368)
"It gives me strength to have somebody to fight for; I can never fight for myself, but, for others, I can kill."
--Emilie Autumn
