"There’s nothing wrong with reading a book you love over and over. When you do, the words get inside you, become a part of you, in a way that words in a book you’ve read only once can’t."

The magic of books… That feeling of relaxation when you enter a book shop. All the problems melt away as the possibility of finding new treasure is before you.

Anonymous asked: ""No one has held me like this in such a long time. Since my father died and I stopped trusting my mother, no one else’s arms have made me feel this safe." Not even her best friend Gale's arms made her feel safe like her father's arms--and Peeta's. Peeta. It was always going to be Peeta."

Katniss loves his arms. I think Peeta symbolizes everything Katniss lacks at the beginning of THG: hope, life, bread, steadiness, safety, strength, etc. These are all descriptors that she uses to describe him throughout the books. His arms are just another facet of him fulfilling a need for her. They provide for her throughout the entire series and she literally mentions it:

  • in the cave
  • from nightmares on the train 
  • lips on the neck moment
  • sleeping in the Training Center before the QQ
  • throughout the arena in CF (after jabberjays & the beach kiss)
  • she absolutely longs for them in Mockingjay (there are many quotes)
  • Strong arms before they go to the Capitol Circle
  • end of MJ: “arms are there to comfort me. And eventually his lips….”

So, yeah. I guess she likes his arms. :)

When I’m close to finishing a book, I always have to bring another one with me, because what if I finish reading and I have no other book to start???
