Now forgive me fans of The Hunger Games trilogy what I’m about to say may sound like blasphemy but here goes. For some reason or the other I just wasn’t into the series-hear me out. There was so much hype surrounding which can be a double-edged sword because sometimes its well deserved and others not so much. It just seemed to hyped for me. And I feared being disappointed after expectations were risen so high, but I must concede after watching the trailer I was blown away. So now I must eat crow and read the series before the movie comes out in March. Everyone, do you think I can do it? On top of the pile of other books I have to read. Check in with me March to see if I accomplish my goal. Leave encouragements in comments below I would appreciate it guys.
Suzanne Collins, writer of the Hunger Games Trilogy has switched gears of sorts in her new project. From a dystopian society to modern day still on the subject of war but in a different context. Part biography and part fiction chronicling her own family’s experience with war. In honor of the service men in her family-her father, grandfather, and uncle.
The book is said to feature illustrations inspired from actual members of her own family, with real names etc.. But don’t fret Hunger Games fans, she vows her writing will still appeal to an YA audience.
Ms Collins was quoted to have said “I specifically want to do this book, one as a sort of memory piece kind of honoring that year for my family, and two, because I know so many children are experiencing it right now — having deployed parents. And it’s a way I would like to try and communicate my own experience to them.”
