The Hunger Games Related Books To Watch Out For

With the release of “Mockingjay”, the last book in “The Hunger Games” trilogy, on August 24, 2010, many fans are no doubt  hoping for perhaps another book to the trilogy or something new The Hunger Games  related while we wait for “The Hunger Games” to arrive in theatres and cinemas alike in March 12, 2012. Though it seemed highly unlikely for another book to “The Hunger Games” trilogy as Suzanne Collins seems to be pretty adamant “M0ckingjay” will be the last book with the very final feeling in the ending, there’s hope for new materials about “The Hunger Games” trilogy after all!

In a press release back in June 16, 2011, Scholastic has announced four “The Hunger Games” books to be released.

The Hunger Games Collector’s Edition ($30, November 2011, ISBN: 978-0-545-40577-5) will be published in November 2011 and will include a special slipcase featuring exclusive new mockingjay artwork. The three movie tie-in titles include The Hunger Games: Movie Tie-In Edition ($12.99, February 2012, ISBN: 978-0-545-42511-7), The Hunger Games: Official Illustrated Movie Companion ($18.99, February 2012, ISBN: 978-0-545-42290-1) and The World of The Hunger Games ($17.99, February 2012; ISBN: 978-0-545-42512-4), all to be published in February 2012 in advance of the much-anticipated March 2012 feature film release.

On August 18th, 2011, a Tracy van Straaten from VP of Trade Publicity revealed “The Hunger Games Collector’s Edition” cover as well as what it will contain on Scholastic Inc. official blog.

The Hunger Games Collector’s Edition

The Hunger Games Collector’s Edition (November 2011, $30) by Suzanne Collins will feature an elegant foil slipcase featuring all-new Mockingjay artwork, the bestselling original novel with a cloth cover, foil stamping, and deckled edges.

As for now, no other information are given about “The Hunger Games: Movie Tie-In Edition”, “The Hunger Games: Official Illustrated Movie Companion” and “The World of The Hunger Games”. Is it just me or does “The World of The Hunger Games” sounds like a possible encyclopedia about The Hunger Games world? Perhaps more background story or details on Panem? I guess only time will tell.

Meanwhile, as “The Hunger Games” trilogy is getting popular with the buzz and anticipation for “The Hunger Games” movie increasing, unauthorized books related to “The Hunger Games” trilogy are on the rise.

The first would be “The Girl Who Was on Fire: Your Favorite Authors on Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games Trilogy” edited by Leah Wilson. There are 13 articles in total and the contributors are Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Mary Borsellino, Sarah Rees Brennan, Terri Clark, Bree Despain, Adrienne Kress, Cara Lockwood, Elizabeth M. Rees, Carrie Ryan, Ned Vizzini, Lili Wilkinson, Blythe Woolston and Sarah Darer Littman.

The Girl Who Was on Fire: Your Favorite Authors on Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games Trilogy

Katniss Everdeen’s adventures may have come to an end, but her story continues to blaze in the hearts of millions worldwide.

In The Girl Who Was on Fire, thirteen YA authors take you back to Panem with moving, dark, and funny pieces on Katniss, the Games, Gale and Peeta, reality TV, survival, and more. From the trilogy’s darker themes of violence and social control to fashion and weaponry, the collection’s exploration of the Hunger Games reveals exactly how rich, and how perilous, protagonist Katniss’ world really is.

• How does the way the Games affect the brain explain Haymitch’s drinking, Annie’s distraction, and Wiress’ speech problems?
• What does the rebellion have in common with the War on Terror?
• Why isn’t the answer to “Peeta or Gale?” as interesting as the question itself?
• What should Panem have learned from the fates of other hedonistic societies throughout history—and what can we?

The Girl Who Was On Fire covers all three books in the Hunger Games trilogy.

“The Girl Who Was on Fire: Your Favorite Authors on Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games Trilogy” edited by Leah Wilson was released on April 5, 2011 and you can already find it in local bookstores such as Kinokuniya and Borders.

Another unauthorized book would be “The Hunger Games Companion: The Unauthorized Guide to the Series” by Lois H. Gresh.

The Hunger Games Companion: The Unauthorized Guide to the Series

The ultimate companion guide to the blockbuster Hunger Games trilogy

For all those who adore Katniss and Peeta, and can’t get enough, this companion guide to the wildly popular Hunger Games series is a must-read and a terrific gift.

Go deeper into the post-apocalyptic world created by Suzanne Collins than you ever thought possible—an alternative future where boys and girls are chosen from twelve districts to compete in “The Hunger Games,” a televised fight-to-the-death. When sixteen-year-old Katniss learns that her little sister has been chosen, Kat steps up to fight in her place—and the games begin. This unauthorized guide takes the reader behind the stage.

The Hunger Games Companion includes fascinating background facts about the action in all three books, a revealing biography of the author, and amazing insights into the series’ main themes and features–from the nature of evil, to weaponry and rebellions, to surviving the end of the world. It’s everything fans have been hungering for since the very first book!

This book is not authorized by Suzanne Collins, Scholastic Press or anyone involved in the Hunger Games movie.

“The Hunger Games Companion: The Unauthorized Guide to the Series” by Lois H. Gresh is scheduled to be release on November 8, 2011.

  1. The rest of both the books predictable, the only exceptions being decisions by the characters that seem competely unmotivated (as compared to unexpected- which is a great thing, and one of the many strengths of Book 1.) The ending was absolutely terrible. Anticlimatic and one of those unmotivated decisions.
