Readers react to new Hunger Games novel, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
Let The Hunger Games Begin... Again?
The Hunger Games fanbase has lived on and lived strong in the twelve years since the first book blessed our lives. Now, in the year 2020, Suzanne Collins has released, not only her first book since Mockingjay, but a The Hunger Games prequel following President Snow as a teen.
With The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes now out in the wild, readers across the world have a lot to say and we’ve gathered together some of their best reactions.
#BalladOfSongbirdsandSnakes is making me feel so nostalgic. I still remember the first time I read the hunger games. I read all three books in just under 48hours. I refused to sleep or do anything but read.

I just finished reading The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, the hunger games prequel, and WOW. Without spoiling anything I’ll just say I’m shocked, disgusted, shocked again, angry, sad, and even more intrigued. It was very good and I hate Coriolanus Snow even more now.
