so I don't know is Suzanne actually reads these but if she does then I have to say I'm a HUGE fan! I'll admit at first I didn't want to read the books because I didn't find it interesting but now I've read them all at least 10 times! It his me sooio hard when FINNICK died! I loved him so so much because he was so sweet. Like he could've had ANYONE but he chose Annie and he is just so perfect and I love him! I need to say this. I want a spin off book just about Finnick and Annie. They are so cute and I would love to know more about them! Thanks! Love you so much Suzanne Collins!

I love the hunger games trilogy and was so sad when it ended!
I think that a hunger games guide would be a great. With characters back stories to the tributes such as Johanna and haymitch and finnick. It'd be great to hear the real stories of them and even though there's many fan made stories there's only one you!

This is probably never gonna get to Suzanne Collins but still, in case it does, have you gotten any offers for a movie for the underland chronicles? Those are pretty much some of my favorite books. But they're too unknown by so many people. I have no one to talk to about them. Maybe if a movie came out more people would read the book. I'd just really like to see a movie. And hopefully they don't end up like the Percy Jackson movies.

In the books, Katniss' name comes from a flower. Peeta is a baker. Pita = bread. Bread is made from flour. Katniss is flour (flower). Gale is a wind. Wind carries flowers. Katniss = flower.

Hunger games

I am a huge fan of the hunger games series. I have read the series at least a dozen times. I wrote it before every movie has come out right it just in between just for fun because I love the series. I was wondering if you might thinking about writing another book or two about the under ground railroad, the workings of the rebellion.
Maybe talk about some previous past failed attempts maybe one of them was her father that's why he was blown up.
Maybe at first hey Mitch was the only want to see that Katniss could be the one to pull this off.
When she rebelled and volunteer for her sister and maybe he spends a lot of time trying to convince people in the capital and people in other districts that she would be the one and they finally didn't see it until she did what she did for Rue. They went district 11 happened to start rebelling that's when everything's got the ball rolling.
Maybe Seneca Crane has always been on it too.
Maybe he had a lover another district and they got separated and his lover was in another district they had a kid together. So maybe he didn't want his child to be in the reaping and so he was on board with the rebellion and that's why he made it possible that if two for the same district or to survive they could be cowinner's in the hunger games.
Maybe we could also go back and see some previous hunger games of the characters that played out in these three books there hunger games and how they got to where they are now. How have they evolved and why are they involved in the hunger games. What roles did they play.
Maybe people from the capital in other districts have been caught and turned into slaves of the capital.
Maybe Ceaser Flickr man has been involved from the get go to. After all he is the one who asked the questions and talks to all the tributes.
Maybe Ceaser Flickr man and Heymich we're on board together. Ceaser Flickr been knew what questions to ask because it would prompt a certain response out of Pete up. Prompt a certain response out of Katniss.
I know I buy ads and I've read it 1000 times just like I have your books now and I know many others would too.
You're an amazing writer and I hope you might consider writing another book that's related to the hunger games the underground workings of what happened and how it went on and how they were able to work out the whole rebellion.

Dear Suzanne, I am one of your hugest hunger games fans and when I tell you this I am speaking for all hunger games fans... We want more!!!! maybe you could make books about past hunger games since you ended the mocking jay book in that way I really don't see the book series going forward so why don't you go backwards unless you could find a way to make the series go forward....... Thank You and I really hope you take my opinion/imagination into consideration.

I have read the books countless times, what I think would be awesome is another series but from the same thing. Different perspectives. Perhaps one from President Snow's point of view. Or Peeta's. Haymitch. Prim. Really any character showing you a different version of the same story. That's just me, I don't think it would be boring to reread the same story line told from another character. We constantly see how you add Katniss' every single thought and I think it would be interesting to see what others see her as. She doesn't see herself as the mockingjay until she actually visits the hospital in District 8 after a bombing to see the effect she has. Just a fan's opinion, lover of the hunger games forever!

Out of all the characters in the Hunger Games, I really like Haymitch.

But. . .

We don't really know his life or why he drinks. Maybe it was the Hunger Games. . .but still. We don't know his family or anything like that. I think he really deserves a prequel, and so do all the fangirls.

Suzanne Collins must consider this.

Your books are amazing! I would love it if you could make another book in the ‘Gregor the Overlander’ series. I like the idea of gregor’s family going down to the underland again to fight the cutters. That is one of my suggestions. Also, another fan wrote and idea that, I think, is pretty interesting. That idea was that Boots (Margret) Goes back to the underland later on in the future and she fulfills prophecies that they uncovered from a cave that was long forgotten or something like that. I won’t take any credit for these ideas because other fans have mentioned them before. I just hope that you consider writing another book and possibly use these ideas. Again, I love your books and these are ideas to consider.

I've read the series over 7 times now and I really want there to be a 6th book. I've got the idea the idea that Gregor and his family are still living in New York and Gregor sneaks down to the laundry room and finds a note that was slipped through the grate. It's written from Luxa saying that if there is any way possible he needs to come to the underland again and that there is a bat waiting at the bottom for him. Without hesitation he jumps down the tunnel and rides the bat to Regalia where Luxa says the has a surprise for him. She blind folds him and leads him around the palace. When she unties the blind fold all he sees is Aurora standing in front of him with her wings spread out hiding something behind her. A black bat pokes his head around her and comes into full view. Even though the bat is clearly not full grown it is the size of Aurora. Gregor is stunned how much he looks like Ares. Luxa explains that shortly after Gregor left Aurora gave birth to the bat that she and Ares were expecting and that they had neglected to tell anyone about. The little bat looked completely like Ares except for a little gold outline around his face. The little bat introduced himself as Gregory, and that he was named after Gregor. Gregor was so stunned that he turned and ran to the only place he know that had a solid door, the prophecy room. Gregor got in there and was trembling from shock but found a lit oil lamp. After a few minutes Luxa came into the room with a grim look on her face. She told him that there was also another reason that he was needed down here. There was another prophecy. She said that they hadn't told him about it because it mentioned the birth of Gregory, Aurora's and Ares child, although they couldn't predict that Aurora was going to have a child by reading the prophecy. But now that the events leading up to the prophecy have come to pass and they could now understand it. It stated that there were now two Banes, twins. Two white rats born from the same mother at the same time. They were already turning the rats that were loyal to the current leader , Ripred, who was on peaceful terms with the humans into bloodthirsty monsters who wanted the humans dead. Gregor and Gregory must work together to kill both Banes. And both of their blood is drained, and Ares claw is laid in their blood. Ares will come back to life and he and Gregor, Aurora, and Luxa will be reunited and Ares will get to meet his son for the first time. Then Gregor and his family stay and live in the Underland.

Hi,I'm a fan of the hunger games BUT I think that its a bit disappointing how it ended.Its such a great story and its good but I'm not very happy with it.I think that you should write one more book where there is a new uprising and coins family would like revenge and there is one last hunger games and all the victors children are reaped also maybe say that because its fair in the future she has a choice to brings people back to life or something but I still love the books X

Dear Suzanne Collins,
I love your books and one series that caught my attention is the Gregor the Overlander Series. I have read it probably ten times now and it still holds my attention better than anything else I have ever read. The one thing I didn’t like about it was the way it ended. I want there to be another book so badly I would write it, but only you can. I have some ideas for a 6th book.
It starts out saying that Gregor’s family didn’t move to Virginia, and stayed in New York. Gregor goes to the laundry room and finds a note from Luxa saying that she has a pleasant surprise for him and that if there is any way possible he needs to go to Regalia. Gregor has to sneak away from his family and drops down the grate. At the bottom Nike is waiting for him and flies him to Regalia. When he gets there Luxa is waiting for him. She leads his through the Palace and just before they were going to round a corner she blindfolds him. She leads him around the corner and after she whispers something to someone in front of him she removes the blindfold. All he sees is Aurora in front of him with her wings spread out hiding something behind her. Then a black bat pokes his head out from around her and reveals himself. Gregor is shocked about how much he looks like Ares. Luxa explains to him that shortly after he left, Aurora gave birth to this bat the she and Ares were expecting.

The bat looked exactly like Ares except he had a golden outline around his face. The bat introduced himself as Gregory, so he had been named after Gregor. Gregor was so shocked that he ran to the only place in the palace he knew had a solid door. The Prophecy Room. He ran into the room and shut the door and took a minute to collect himself. After a few minutes Luxa came into the room, and told him that she had to talk to him about something else. She explained that the rats that were loyal to Ripred were turning to new leaders. Twin Banes. And that they were once again trying to kill or gain control of every species in the Underland, starting with the nibblers. Now with two Banes, it would be twice as hard to stop them. After the initial shock Gregor goes to the Museum to collect the two halves of his sword and his dagger. With Luxa’s help they get a blacksmith to rebuild his sword. Gregor and Gregory team up and set out to take out the Banes as a revenge for Ares’s death and to stop them from destroying all of the Underland. When Gregor and Gregory begin fighting the Banes, they manage to take out one of them before Gregory dislocates his wing and unable to fight. That leaves Gregor to fight on foot and he stands no chance of winning. The remaining Bane charges at him and the only way out is over a cliff. Gregor was about to be killed when he hears a familiar voice purr “Jump Overlander”. Gregor immediately recognizes the voice. It’s Ares. Without thinking Gregor jumps over the cliff. The Bane thought he had defeated Gregor so he reared back and gave a roar at his victory. When the Bane roared he left his throat exposed and Ares fly’s Gregor into range and Gregor slices the Banes throat. Gregor notices a purple scar that was caused by the humans, crosses with a scar from the original Bane. He and Ares, with Gregory in his claws, fly to Ares’ cave outside of Regalia and Gregor walks the rest of the way to get Luxa. When Luxa and Gregor and Aurora get to the cave all they can see is Gregory on the ground with his injured wing because Ares is hiding in the dark behind them. When Luxa and Aurora aren’t looking, Ares slides out of the darkness and reveals himself, surprising Luxa and Aurora into the point where they are crying because of joy. They explain what happened then Gregor and Ares finally get to talk to each other alone. It turns out that Ares wasn’t actually killed, but severely injured by the Bane’s teeth. The injury caused Ares to be knocked out. When Gregor had thought Ares had been killed, he saw his neck where the bane had bitten him, and thought he had torn part of his throat out. But since it was dark and Gregor was relying on echolocation and losing blood, what he thought was his throat that had been torn out, it was actually just some fur and skin. Gregor had killed the Bane before he had done enough damage to Ares to kill him. But when Ares had woken up he had forgotten where he was. He was lost for months until he heard the commotion of Gregor and Gregory fighting the Banes and went to help. After that Ares gets to meet his son properly and is reunited with Aurora. When Nerissa sees Ares the first thing she notices are the scars on his chest that form an “X”. Luxa explains to Nerissa that Ripred had made the second scar himself so Ares is now named the Peacemaker. Even though Gregor knows that Ares doesn’t believe in the prophecies like Gregor, Ares uses it to finally make peace once and for all in the Underland. Gregor and the rest of his family decide to stay and live in the Underland.

Hi Suzanne

I read that you had never heard of Battle Royale before writing the hunger games. Surely working in the entertainment industry in the 90s/20s meant you had at least heard of the book/film Battle Royale that was a global cult film. I honestly think that as a writer you have due care to give credit to sources that you take inspiration from even if you want to butcher their original work. If not, you have to expect to and accept that you are a complete fraud. Neither the less, rest in peace the fact that most people that you will ever speak to, that have a tad of intelligence will know that you have somehow (and wait it's not that hard) taken someone else's work, passed it off as your own and made idiots and young girls eat it up.

Kind regards

Hello,
I have read the Hunger Games trilogy at least 2 times already and I LOVE THEM!! I love the way you write! The only major upset that I just can't get over from reading your books is the fact that Katniss chose Peeta over Gale! I think that Gale is soooo much more better than Peeta and that Katniss was forced into her "love" with Peeta because of her first Hunger Games. I feel like Peeta isn't the best person for Katniss and that Gale is because Gale took care of Katniss's family when she was in the area fighting for her life. He kept them alive and they both lost their dads in a mining accident, they both are good hunters, and they obviously LOVE each other but it's Peeta who forces Katniss's love. I also feel that Katniss is much more relaxed and like herself around Gale and that she is trying to be something that she isn't around Peeta. That's just how I feel but seiously I can't get over the fact that she chose Peeta and not Gale. I also feel like Peeta should have died in the first arena and that Cato should have killed him just because then she could go home and be with the person who she actually loves: GALE! I just can't get over this for some reason, I hope to now more about Gales life in District Two after the rebellion.

We were given a picture with a paragraph on it my was 'Then the clouds opened, and a light shone down on that exact spot'. I know it sounds a bite weird but I had a storm of ideas on what I could write about. So this is what I got in a short version. It's about a boy named Eren he lived a life were he was always treated like an outcast even his own patients try to avoid he. He gets bullied for no reason, no one wanted to even be near him he has no friends but the only person that liked him was his grandfather. He's name Greg he always says 'no one is burn to be alone in this world' and 'sticks and stones may break but you never let those painful words reach your soul'. But he died in a bush fire Eren was in so much pain he was going to kill himself but right before he did the clouds opened and shined a light down on him in this dark land. The lights shined brighter then the devin gates of heaven. That's all I got when time stopped for the test so if you carnt do it it's fine but please think about it thanks. O and before I forget here's some paragraphs I thought mite help.

Great books :) I just read all three in less than a week for the first time, and now going to marathon the movies that I've also never seen. Always need to read the books first as they are always much better than the movies, and I'm sure they will. I loved your work and look forward to reading your other books.

I just completed the series for the 17th time and I am a big fan. I really don't like the ending of Code of Claw. It just abruptly ends with Boots pronouncing Gregor's name right... I really want to know what happened to Luxa, and if Gregor will go back. I also want to hear something about Gregor and Luxa getting married. Also, what happened to the ants/cutters? Maybe after they get married, Vikus reveals a prophecy about a cutter invasion after the marraige... So many ideas. So please, make more books.

P.S. Maybe go ahead like 6 years so the marriage thing makes sense and so Gregor isnt running away from home and he is of age to go off into the world.

Dear Ms. Collins,
I would just like to say thank you for your fabulous books and movies which were made off of your books. I haven't yet read the mockingjay book because I have to read another book for school, but I know that I will love it. Please consider writing another hunger games book. If you keep in contact with Jennifer Lawerence and Josh Huntishion, please tell them that a 14 year old girl from PA thought that their acting was perfect to the story of the book. You guys are who I look up to and I would actually love to met you guys.
From,
An adoring fan,

Hi Susan,
I am a huge fan of Gregor. I've read all the Gregor books many times. I think your other books are great but i think it would be amazing if you made another Gregor book. Last year in fourth grade my teacher started reading Gregor to us and i fell in love with the books. I Think it would be amazing if you did make another Gregor book because i fell like there is so much more readers and fans could know about. Like what happened in the underland after luxa and ripred made peace between the rats and humans. Also what is happing between luxa and Gregor or does Gregor ever go back to the
underworld. What i'm saying is please please please make another gregor book

I think a book/movie should be made about the prequel to the Hunger Games. It should be about why the games came to be.

I believe you could continue the series by making a prequel about haymich or having multiple prequels about the different victors such as the ones in the 3rd quarter quell or other not mentioned victors

I loved the hunger games so much and Finnick was my favorite character ever! I was so disappointed when he was killed I literally threw the book. I think you would make so much money if you wrote a book about Finnick in the 65th hunger games in the 1st person perspective also maybe about him mentoring and falling in love with Annie Cresta. Or maybe one about the first rebellion and the history of what happened to the world. Just please please make a book just about Finnick I understand your probably really busy just please consider this. Thank you

I love the hunger games so so much and my favorite character was overall absolutely Finnick Odair. However when I read Mockingjay and Finnick died I was so upset I threw my book across the room. I felt so hollow for like 3 days about Finnick dying. So I came up with an idea and I know you are really really busy probably and I don't know if your actually reading this just please consider this, what if you made a single book about Finnick Odair when he was in the 65th hunger games. And then about when he gets back and mentors Annie and it would be about how he fell in love with her. But it would be in Finnick's first person perspective. Please make this happen and thank you for making such amazing books.

I finished mockingjay last night. I was crying so much because it was over. It was great writing. I suggest making another book. I have an idea, you could write a series about Haymich and his experience in the hunger games. Or maybe say what it was like after the epilogue. You are my favorite author and if you ever come to Colorado I would want to come see you.

Dear Suzanne Collins,
First off, I would like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING MY LIFE COMPLETE BY WRITING THE HUNGER GAMES! I absolutely love them ALL with my whole heart. I literally can't stop thinking about them. I have read the series twice and watched all the movies about 3 times. It physically hurts my heart every time someone dies... It hurts to think about how much I love them. I was wondering if you would pleaee consider writing more about the story. Like what happened after Mockingjay ?? Also please consider making Gale more important to Katniss and don't let them drift away!! I love gale with my whole heart (i wish he and katniss were together) and can't bear to see them not getting along. I really hope you see this !!!!!

Dear Suzanne Collins,

My name is Thom van Rij, I’m 17 years old and live Reeuwijk, the Netherlands. I am a huge fan of your Hunger Games trilogy. I have read them in English and in Dutch. The books are so interesting and exciting, I can truly say it are the best books I have ever read. The story is so detailed, true this amazing description it’s almost realistic. Off course it won’t happen in our time but it’s excluded for the future. I am writing you this email because I want to tell how much I like your book.

My most favourite book of the tree is number one. When I saw the cover of the book combined with the title I knew immediately that I have to read it. After I finished the book one breath I read the next one and thereafter the last one. I couldn’t stop reading after the reading something is missing, I miss reading such good books. It makes me feel fortunate that I can live in this moment, I have a good life in comparison with Katniss. We live in a good time. At the same time Katniss show me you can be happy with few she does that at district 12. I like the moments when Katniss could save someone and when Katniss have an ingenious idea. Like the idea that Katniss and Peeta can survive The Hunger Games both. I didn’t like the scenes when someone who I like goes die, as Rue it makes me feel sad. On the other hand, it makes the book more exciting. I really like the end of the book it gives you a little intro to the next book.

Maybe after reading my letter, you have a little time to answer my questions.

How did you get so much creativity, to write so detailed and exciting about the future?

Can you write another book about an earlier edition of The Hunger Games?

How is the experience to write a GREAT bestseller around the world?

I hope you enjoy reading my letter a bit. For the future, I hope you can write and publish more magnificent books. The this and next generation will definitely read this book with pleasure. I wish the book will not become reality in the future.

Thank you for reading my letter for you.

Faithfully,

Thom van Rij
