Hey yeah yeah Hunger Games is cool I guess but GREGOR THE OVERLANDER MAN That series deserves another book or at least give us an epilogue. It was sad when I finished the book and I was just like "... thats it?"

Hello I just wanna say I love the Gregor series and I know it was a long time ago but it’s my favorite book/series and your my favorite author and I was asking if there’s ANY,POSSIBLE way that there could be a movie(I would LOVE that) about it and if not that’s ok just thank you for making an awesome series and KEEP MAKING BOOKS (please) please if anyway if there’s possibly going to be a movie then please let social media know so I can know (thank you for your time)

Hi there, so um yeah my real name is Gregor and with that all started. By reading the first book I thought, oh well not bad. But by time I started to connect so much with these books. Your travelling in a bother world. Wild but also beautiful!

So here's my wish, please continue it has so much potential. I know it's been a while that you released the fifth part. But I didn't felt like an ending...

Everyone is bagging for a sixth Book, and you compare it with Harry Potter, for sure.
So please make my wish come true and continue!

And for the others, what about a petition,nif there is any yet. It would get more attention.If there is one please send me a link!

Well that's all I hope I wake up some day and browse on the internet and see that there's a 6 Book published

Greeting Gregor from Germany!! An much love to my brothers in Regalia!!

Does anyone know if this scholastic adress is still up to date?

And I was wondering if after all these years, I am still the only person wondering about what Victors life was like? How was this ‚glorified‘ life full of so called luxury and forced prostitution? How did Finnick and other characters like Cashmere handle it? How did Johanna or Haymitch not commit suicide after losing everything? I want to know more about the Victors before Katniss and Peeta. As much as I love them and their journey but their stories are told opposite the victors.

Hi,
In Catching Fire, Katniss (quite rightly) expresses outrage at the Capital citizens drinking a liquid to make them vomit so that they can carry on indulging in the feast. This got me thinking - what would Katniss or someone in that situation think about genuine eating disorders such as bulimia or anorexia? Would she see it as just as self-indulging, selfish and entitled, or have sympathy when seeing the effects of such a damaging and image-driven society on its most vulnerable members?

Happy early valentine's day! I love your books! My dad, sister, and I read them together every night! Your books bring so much excitement! There have been many days where I wish that I could go hunting with Katniss or bake with Peeta. Your books inspired me to be grateful for what I have and thank God for each day! You are an amazing writer, Keep writing!

Love, Brielle N.

I have only read four chapters, but I love your book. I like how descriptive you are. Thank you!

I would love to see the movie Gregor the Overlander book series as multiple movies, it would be amazing!

Submitted by TempandTick (not verified) on

Please make another Gregor the overlander book maybe where the overlanders discover the under land and go to war with them and take them prisoner so they have to get off of earth for good somehow. And maybe there is something that resurrects things so ares can come back!

The hunger games is such a beautiful told story that still to this day I don’t feel privileged to have read it. I aspire to be Katniss Everdeen! I truly feel no one will get her the way I do. This story, novel, movie will forever be my favorite and one that I feel apples to me as a person the most and for that I am grateful that Suzann Collins created this! All I can say is Thank you

I like the Hunger Games just fine, but I think the Gregor series is where its at. My mom was the first one in my family to read this series. She then shared it with my dad and I, who took turn reading it to each other out loud. That was in maybe the fifth grade for me. Now I'm about to be a senior in high school, and I still read this series a couple of times a year. I shared it with my best friend, who is a few years younger than I am, and she fell in love with it as well. (Spoilers ahead) I still tear up when thinking about Ares and his tragic death. This may have been the fictional death that has affected me most. Ripred and Lizzie make me so happy. I hope Luxa was able can keep the peace with Vikus mentoring her. And for Gregors family, I just hope that they keep holding onto each other. I think about Gregor a lot. I just hope that in his fictional universe he was able to lead as normal a life as he can. I love all of these characters, and miss Ares terribly.

I absolutely loved The Hunger Games series, (they are my favorite books of all time) and I think it would be really cool if you made a second Hunger Games series with the same three books (all the same things happen) but instead of Katniss Everdeen's point of view you would do Peeta Mellark's point of view so we could know more about him. And he is another main character. I really think people would love this, and I know I would definitely love it!!

Submitted by Kendal (not verified) on

I just really want to say you have such an wonderful imagination and amazing messages you are trying to express. These series are one of my favorites! I love love love the backstory!!!! You have created so many passions that people have for this series that is just phenomenally amazing! I can’t stop thinking about the books/movies. I would like to let you know that I you inspired me with many ideas, and I would really like to share one with you. Imagine all the people who would love a book/movie about the life of Peeta and Katniss, along with their kids. Everyone would just love to see such a perfect family together. I think many people would just absolutely be beyond excited if this idea happened. I understand how busy you are, but with your awesome writing skills, I think this would be such a hit!!!!

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

I agree, but maybe not just about them living an everyday life... maybe someone takes their kids and they have to go on a very long adventure to find them together?

Prequels of major successes are hard to pull off. Just look at Star Wars and LOTR (Hobbit). You made some tough decsions that paid off in spades.

Have you heard and seen how Maiah Wynne has added melodies to your songs and performed them as Lucy Gray Baird perfectly ?. I have never met her and have no stake in the game. But I would like to ask you to check her out.. https//maiahwynne.com/songbirds.

You may have found a undiscovered talent to matchJennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen.

By the way, the political strive we are seeing in the streets now are amazingly foreshadowed in your new book.

Thank you for the great work. You have created a classic

Best regards
Dan Henkey

Hello! I just finished The Ballad Of Songbirds And Snakes. Will this be a stand alone prequel to the Hunger games trilogy or will it be a trilogy as well? Will we get to see a book from Lucy Gray’s perspective... or from Alma Coin’s life...? Thanks!

Submitted by AR (not verified) on

I really really like your books! But I was thinking for the Hunger Games could you add a book on Finnick's story? There's so much unanswered about what happened to him! I think there should be something on how Finnick and Annie fell in love too!

Submitted by cristin (not verified) on

The Hunger Games series and the ballads of songbirds and snakes isnt enough... i need to know what happens next after snow returns... you cant leave us hanging.. please come out with some more

Submitted by Sander (not verified) on

We need some more books about katniss and peeta and maybe some books about how finnick Annie Johanna and haymitch won their games and maybe that The hunger games some how continue?

Submitted by Tahlia (not verified) on

Hello Suzanne Collins, I have recently read your prequel to the hunger games and the hunger games books them selves and I absolutely love them!!!! Please continue with more books from the hunger games like one about Katniss’s children or more books about the other characters perspective or even both! PLEASE??? I’m desperate to read more hunger games books as they were so interesting. Love your work by the way!

Your hunger games fan,

Tahlia

Did you like the ending of that book? It was devastating

Submitted by Audrey (not verified) on

WHY DID IT HAVE TO END THAT WAY?! Okay, I get that President Snow is bad. But, Suzanne, you didn't have to kill off Lucy Gray or make her almost kill Coriolanus! Or he kills Lucy Gray! Lucy Gray and Coriolanus were in love and it did not have to end that way! I got in trouble for groaning so loud because I was mad at the book. (If I knew how to put an emoji on a computer it would be the lol emoji) The ending should've been something like Lucy Gray and Coriolanus run off and grow old together and they don't die, but Lucy Gray just gets sick and she's never seen in any of the movies, you know?

Anyway, that's my opinion, and I'm picky! lol

Submitted by Ash (not verified) on

The question that almost everyone is asking is did Peeta force or push Katniss to have kids. What happened there.

Submitted by Kendra (not verified) on

Dear Suzanne,
I loved your Hunger Games trilogy. When I first read all 3 books I couldn’t stop thinking about the characters and ended up rereading them multiple times (which is not typical for me!). Would it be possible for you to write the books from the experience of Peeta? I know that it adds to the suspense not to know although after reading the trilogy I was so curious to learn more about what he was thinking and feeling! Anyway, I just wanted to share these thoughts with you. Thank you for your enchanting books :)
Kind regards,
Kendra

Hey Mrs. Suzanne Collins, I am a huge Hunger Games Fan. I was wondering with your new book "The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes" if you are going to make another book about Cornilious Snow? I absolutely want more books about him. I love how you are continuing with the Hunger Games. Could you maybe make a book about Katniss and Peeta's life after the rebellion? -Kylie

Hi, I don't think Suzanne Collins will read this, but just putting it out there. I am a 12-year-old girl and I really love the Hunger Games. Unlike so many books I have read, all the characters, (including the antagonist) have so much depth and are so interesting. One of my favorites is Finnick Odair. I would really like to read a book about his Hunger Games and how he won, even if it is just something like a short story. I think he is a really interesting character, and as the youngest victor of the hunger games deserves to have a book. :)

Submitted by T_Sabia (not verified) on

Hi Noelle!
I wholeheartedly agree. I need closure and I am very interested in Finnick's early life!
It's cool to know that there is someone on the same page as me!

Submitted by Harper (age 11) (not verified) on

I agree 100% with the both of you. Finnik Odair is- a charming, kind and thoughtful character . (Well, he is until he's eaten alive by the genetically modified animals: Zombies, pack animals that don't exist , mocking jay.etc...) Rue also was one of my favorites. But yes Finnik Odair definitely deserves a backstory since he was the youngest to compete and win the hunger games

Submitted by Sierra Marcano (not verified) on

I desperately need you to think on a novel from the view of different tributes especially Hamish I believe your works to be important and I believe from his point of view from his games as you touched on in catching fire up until his side of the arena gifts and communication to katniss during the games could be epic

Submitted by Fan (not verified) on

PLEASE write more overlander stories, I loved the new hunger games book, and I would love another overlander series, like if they stay in nyc! Or when he’s 18 and goes back from Virginia. No way does he never go back

Submitted by T_Sabia (not verified) on

Hello Miss Collins!
My name is Tess Sabia and I came across this website while looking for a way to write to you to tell you how much I enjoyed the Hunger Games series. I just finished the first 3 and am looking forward to reading the prequel.
One of my favorite characters was Finnick. I enjoyed how you wrote him and I am a huge fan. I was satisfied with the wedding, time in the arena, bonding with Katniss and so forth. The one thing I was EXTREMELY sad about was his death. There was no grieving it seemed even after the war was over. No one seemed to care and that brought me to tears. There is still a possibility I think for you to write about him somehow surviving but, I'm sad to admit that his death was pretty final. One thing that I among many others in the fandom would like to see is one sole book focused around his life. It could bring some closure to an otherwise "forgotten" death. This is the first time I have ever felt so connected to a fictional character and I am so grateful to you for that. I JUST NEED CLOSURE!
If you are reading this then please please try to make a book centered around Finnick or somehow bring him back into the series.
Thank you for your time! Also I don't think that there is a large chance of Ms. Collins or really anyone reading this but if you have come to this point then you are awesome. :)

Submitted by Kenny (not verified) on

I think the same as you!
And it would be great with a book about Finnick and his life!

Hello! I know you're keen to leave the Hunger Games series behind. I understand. So you want to work on other books? Well, everyone wants a new book SO much. Please, maybe someday, if you ever can- Please expand the series...

Submitted by Harper (age 11) (not verified) on

I don't even know if you check this anymore, but I am probably the #1 fan of hunger games in the world- I love how thrilling and entertaining it is🦋. I know that it's probably to late to write another book, but just a suggestion. If you could tell me your email for fan mail that would be awesome! I NEED MORE. Katniss Everdeen is my role model , even if she is a fictional character. Email again would be great! Thanks~Harper

I read The hunger Games before the movies and everything and I absolutely love them so so much literally since I was younger!!!! And I always wished you made moreee boookkkssss and I mean based on the other mentors games such as Haymitch or even the hunger games from Peetas view because there so many emotions I know he goes through and he’s not all sweetness and kindness sometimes because we do see he has a dark side in the first book we can see how he manipulates the career tributes and even escapes from them how he goes through everything he doesss!!! You know like it would be absolutely amazing
And other tributes stories like Annie Maggs Finnick!!! ❤️
Likeeee aghhhh I absolutely love your books so much I seriously get so excited butttttt I wishhhh you will continue themmm!!!!!!! Pleaseee!!!!

Hi! When I found out there was no more Hunger Games books left... I almost cried. I LOVED the Hunger Games series!! I have been talking to my friends, and they think the same thing I do: you are the best writer ever! We are all inspired by your writing, and would love it if you could write more books about Katniss and Peeta! Lime maybe it could be that they were found, and brought back to the Capitol? What ever you do, if you choose to write more, I know it will be great!

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

I think that everything you did in the books were perfect, and I think killing off Finnick was the right thing to do to add drama and suspense

Submitted by Your biggest fan (not verified) on

Hi! I am 11 years old, and I am your biggest fan! I just wanted to say that I agree with the fact that Finnick should have been able to escape... maybe the bomb killed the mutts and made him fall into the sewers? All I know is I need more!! I don’t know what else to say!! The books are great and I am in love with them!! Showing how much Katniss has displayed herself as a hero is very inspiring to me! I read the book Catching Fire in a week because I couldn’t take my eyes off the pages! I also almost cried when I finished it! Mrs Collins, you are very inspiring to all of us, and you have a great gift with writing! I don’t know you you read these anymore, but if you do, please, take advantage of that talent and write more! I know I’m not the only one that needs it! These books cheered me up so much... and it broke my heart when I was finished. I know you will make the right decision❤️

I finished the book today and I'm still shocked. Wow this book is so well-written, deep and just amazing. I enjoyed reading it sooo much and I´m really sad that it's over now haha. I never cried because of a book, because I'm not that much of a sensitive person but I really did while reding this book. And to be honest not just once haha. It was such an amazing experience that I would never want to miss. Wow really huge admiration for Suzanne Collins. Thanks for writing it.

Dear Suzanne Collins,

Your trilogy, The Hunger Games, engulfed me from the start. Your beautiful words and technique go together to make my three favorite books. The plot, ideas and characters are new and exciting in a way many books lack. I followed Katniss's story throughout all three novels with curiosity, worry, joy, and finally tears when your book’s ended.

I also loved Gregor The Overlander, which had a twist on fantasy and sci-fi, another fun combination that is rarely used. Your ideas helped me understand what writing can do. I hope to read the rest of the series soon as I have only read the first book.

I did not want to read any other books after I read The Hunger Games and I was sad when it ended. I have only ever seen that effect for myself in your books. I still remember when I finished reading the third book, lying in bed wanting to continue the story that had already ended. My mind was blown even after the words ended, I was very curios as to what happens next. I did not want to read another book, but I forced myself to get back into reading. I was looking for a novel like yours but I could not find any.

Your writing is unique, engaging, exiting, and most of all truly amazing.

Sincerely,
Matthew Hughes

Hello! My name is Bella and I'm a HUGE fan of the hunger games books, and movies!I dont know if you will see this but I had suggestion,

I dont think anyone has had enough hunger games yet. And I was so exited when you released the new hunger games prequel but I still think there are so many other story's that would be so interesting to write about! Like Fennick Odair, his backstory is so interesting to me and would make a book just as good as hunger games, or Peeta, Joanna, maybe even Cinna or Haymich! Or you could write about Peeta and Katniss after the games, there are so many possibilities, and I know so many others agree! So if your not too busy, I think more Prequels would be a amazing idea! Its up to you, just wanted to throw it out there.

-Your biggest fan

I LOVE THE HUNGER GAMES! I just finished reading the first for the 22th time(I counted). I have read the second over 15 times, and the third as well. I have convinced over 3 people to read, and they love it. They have also told their friends and family. Did I mention that this book has changed my life?

I am also in the process of reading Gregor the overlander. It is below my level, but am reading it anyway.

Suzanne Collins is a GENIUS.

Submitted by BigFan (not verified) on

I thought of this in the beginning of the year! I think Annie would also make a great addition. So would Chaff, Seeder, both Cashmere and Gloss with narrations from both on each, Mags, Enobaria, and Wiress, and Beetee.
