The title and cover for the prequel to The Hunger Games have finally been released!
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
I’ll admit, it’s not my favorite title. The YA trend of names books “The _______ of _______ and _______” is getting really old.
I’ll definitely be reading this book, however. The Hunger Games books were so amazing despite being imperfect.
We don’t know too much about the book yet, except what’s been released through the publisher’s synopsis:
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes will revisit the world of Panem sixty-four years before the events of The Hunger Games, starting on the morning of the reaping of the Tenth Hunger Games.
As of right now, the expected publication date is May 19, 2020, but those dates do change pretty frequently.
Off-topic: How in the hell does this book already have 6,000+ ratings? Stop rating books before you read them! /end rant
