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

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!!

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!!!!

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//

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

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!

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!

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,

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

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

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,
