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

It broke my heart when I finished the last book.Please make at least one more Gregor the Overlander book. I want to read more about Gregor,Luxa,Ripred, and all the others.

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 think that series of gregor the overlander must go on!!! please write a new book for all the children.
gregor could live in Virginia and a new prophecy that speak of Boots could let gregor be back to overland
I LOVE THE GREGOR SERIES!!!!!

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

Submitted by FinnickLover (not verified) on

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

Hey Suzanne i'm Olivia and i'm in the 6th grade and the Hungers is one of my favorite series. I've read all the books and seen the movies at least 70 times. It would mean so much to me if you were too make a sequel to show how Katniss and Peeta's children are doing and how Gail is doing and too what's happened with the new government. Or even show the points of views of the other tributes going into the games. ( such as Cato, Foxface, Rue, Thresh, ) I know its alot to ask but it would mean the world too me it you were to make a sequel.

- Sincerely, Olivia

You could make a sixth book where Gregors gramma disappeared, and Gregor sees an open grate in the hospital and then boots says "temp!" And jumps in the grate and Gregor leaves a note to his mom and dad and jumps after boots. While they are falling Gregor realizes that there is a cockroach with a bent antenna and its's temp. Then Gregor hears his other sister, Lizzie, come in after him. When they get to the bottom luxa and aurora get him to the waterway, and Gregor is surprised but boots is, as usual, having fun and Lizzie runs off to find ripred. When Gregor, Luna, and aurora get to the waterway, Gregor sees that a bunch of the flesh eating mites are coming, but are still a couple days away. After that everyone prepares a bunch of war stuff and mite proof armor(I made that up). And then Nerrissa runs up and says Gregor is the peacemaker because the two lines intersecting could be Gregor and Luxa, and Gregor DID deal death, and some other reasons that you (Suzanne Collins) could make up, but I forgot some of my reasons. And then you could write a book about the war with the mites. Just please write a couple more books after this book (if you want to write this book, of course). And pleeeeaase make the series end with Gregor's family members coming to live in the underland and Luxa and Gregor get married.

Dear Suzanne Collins,

I have read your novel “The Hunger Games,” and all I can say is that I love it because it took me to another world and just like others always say, “fictional words are better than the real world.” Actually, this is was my first time reading a novel and I really didn’t regret it. I just wanted to tell that I’m really not a fan of reading but as I read “The Hunger Games,” I eventually felt in love and addicted with it. I prefer reading it than watching it because I think books are more interesting and would challenge me with my imagination about your stories. The movie was also good but reading it is much better. I’m planning on saving money for me to buy another of your novels “Mockingjay” and “Catching Fire.” May I ask if what drives you creating this kind of novels and where do you get inspiration in creating one? I am hoping for your reply on this message but if you have some time, I’d like to have a mini chat with you. Thank you.

I am Dying inside, I need to know what happens next in the series!!!!! I love your books and I really want you to wright a new book like a continuation with these details:
1. Katniss and Peeta's kids go get picked in the reeping
2. Someone tries to ruin peace with an army behind them
3. Katniss's figures out that Cinna really isn't dead after all
4. The arena is now more harmful and more horrors every 30 minutes
Please consider this and I will be happy either way if you say yes or no.

I would really love it if there was a book about Gregor moving to the under land and fighting in a war against the cutters, fighting alongside ripred and all the rats, this would give my mind some ease after the cliff hanger at the end also Gregor should get a new bond like ares' son or maybe even the queen

Suzanne Collins i love your Hunger games book series but i was kinda disappointed that they ended. i would love for you to write another one continuing where you left off. Also maybe do a re-Imagen one of instead of being with Peeta she goes with Gal

Submitted by Deuce McGhee (not verified) on

I see a lot of people wanting another book picking up where the last one left off. As much as I would like that, I'd much rather know what happens to Gregor as he grows up and tries to find his place. I am curious to know if he goes back to live in the Underland, maybe when he's 18 and can legally make the adult decision. If he decides to stay in the Overland, do they move or do they stay? How would he cope with his friends and school if he stayed in New York. By all rights, he has the mentality of an adult, a soldier, far too old for his age. What happens if he gets in a fight and can't control the rager side? If he stays as an adult, does he become a soldier in the military or tries to become a peacemaker in his own land? You can't easily turn off being a soldier, I am one, and this I know. I want to know about him and how he finds his way. I read these books when I was around 12-ish. I had those questions then, and I still have them now as I reread the series for the countless time.

I think you should make a second series in the Hunger Games and Katniss and peeta souls be mentors of the next hunger games made by Plutarch. I bet it would be really good if you made that

Dear Suzanne, my name is NeilaAnn Perry and im 11 years old. I love your books and was hoping you might be able to help remake the hunger games. Dont get me wrong the orignals are great but i would love if you kind of reamke them and maby show a little more of Katniss and Peetas relastion ship. Your #1 fan NeilaAnn Perry

Why gale!!!!!!! I thought gale and katniss should have been together. I neeeeeed to know why gale went to district two and left katniss. I think an excellent series would be gales point of veiw as he had to watch katniss in the hunger games whilst looking after his family and katniss’s. In my opinion I like gale more than peeta. Who agrees?

Submitted by Victor Manzella (not verified) on

Hello Mrs. Collins. If you are reading this I am a HUGE fan and I would love it so much if you added a book or two to the Hunger Games series. I know writing books is time consuming but I am 13 years old, have read every book in my house, and the Hunger Games Trilogy was the most appealing to me. The passion and love between Peeta and Katniss was amazing, but also complicated because of Gale and then Peeta got hijacked and Prim died and then Katniss shot Coin. It all came at once by the end and was hard to process. I know there is not much more to write about with Katniss Everdeen’s story, but maybe you could make one from the standpoint of someone else, not related to Katniss, and about their experiences in the Hunger Games. If you read this thank you so much, and it would mean the world to me if you did.

Hi, I'm writing this to ask you to continue the hunger games series. I've only read the book for 2 days and I'm totally hooked! I literally cried when I finished mockingjay because there are no more books. these books that you wrote inspire me every day. please write another book because no one wants to leave Katniss and Peeta behind forever. all I'm requesting is another book, just one. please, for me and the sake of all the other hunger games fans

Hi, Suzanne Collins! I WAS wanting to put PLEASE MAKE MORE GREGOR THE OVERLANDER BOOKS OR I WILL DIE ALONE AND DEPRESSED! But I thought a simple hi would do....also the fact that I ran out of space in my subject. So... I LOVE GREGOR THE OVERLANDER! Luxa and Gregor for life! 😁 Please give me more! Will his grandma make it out safe? Will they stay? How will they pay for daily life accessories and explain there strange disappearance for such a monumental period of time? Will Boots and Hazard date in the future 🤞. You should do a book about Luxa coming to visit the Overland calling for help from Gregor because of Bane/Gorger supporters are growing and threatening the peace between the humans and rats. Or maybe for once you know.....a HAPPY BOOK?! Just a suggestion! I love both series but honestly Gregor the Overlander is better. (Don’t tell my friends or I won’t make it through the night) I love this series it’s gripping, funny, and you grow with the characters in the book! Please don’t let me down, us Suzanne’s got to stick together right?

Submitted by Sam (not verified) on

I k ow you will probably not see this but I was hoping you would write another book if Gregor the overlander. Not so much as Gregor but maybe a side story. Like star wars and the clone wars. But this would be about ripred and his whole back story and how he became who he is In more depth. It would also be cool to see a book made from fan stories. People could submit stories to you and then you could make a book out of all the small stories people would write. I know this is late because you finished the books 12 years ago but the ending did not feel like a full ending to me. It felt like a Gregor the overlander ending were there would be a next book. To me I think people could write about this stuff for months and not get sick of it. Kind of like Star Wars and how there are tons of books about different characters before and after. Stories of the past and what might happen in the future. Just a thought.

Dear Suzanne Collins

I live in Denmark and have been listening to The Hungergames and Gregor, and watched the Hungame films. I have read rather a lot of Fantasy for Young adult readers, beause of interest concerning the psychological issues and the paedagogic which are in that gendre. And also for the fun of it. I still read childrens books at an age of nearly 60.
Your books are realy good and both seroius and fun in a for me good way. (sorry about my english language). Have you thought about a sequel to Gregor?

With kind regards
Anna Sophie DK

Just question to anyone who knows, I’m writing a fanfic on wattpad and need to know: are mentors all of the previous victors or just the most recent ones? And if it hadn’t been them for the quarter quell, would katniss and Peeta both have mentored?

Hi! No matter how many times I reread The Hunger Games, it never fails to amaze me!

Submitted by Eve (not verified) on

I loved the Underland chronicles so much that I blew through them in a month! Although I loved all of them and felt like each and every character was a part of me, I somewhat feel like it was left at an odd end. As if there was meant to be more, like how the rats and humans alliance would end up, or will Gregor and his family move to Virginia and leave the Underland behind, and if there are any more hidden prophecies that everyone neglected to tell Gregor and his family about! I just feel like there could be more, and if I'm being honest, I was more intrigued throughout this series than the Harry Potter series.

I’d love a book about Haymitch and his game. Thank you !

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?"
