This week I am waiting on
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins
Publication Date: May 19th, 2020
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.
This was an obvious feature, and there is plenty to be said about the book cover and title. I don’t understand this obsession with snakes, they seem to be on every book cover. It’s a trend that is quickly being exhausted. I have mixed feeling about this book. For nostalgia reasons, this is a book I am itching to get my hands on, but there’s also an air of nervousness to it. It’s been years since I visited the world of Panem, reading habits and preferences have changed, but I’m sure this book will be just as immersive as the original trilogy. May the odds be ever in your favour.
What do you think of the title/cover?
