Originally created by Jill at Breaking The Spine, and adapted to Can’t-Wait Wednesday by Tressa at Wishful Endings, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins

Publication Date: May 19th, 2020

Goodreads Summary
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.

    • Time will tell and I think it’s one of those books that will intimidate me because I don’t want it to change my perception of the original trilogy if that makes sense?

    • I can easily understand why and quite frankly, I’m in the same boat. I loved the Hunger Games when they first came out, but a lot of time has passed and I’m nervous about how this release might affect the love I had for the original trilogy.

  1. Ahh yes I have the exact same feelings about this book. On the one hand, I’m so excited to read it, on the other hand I’m way too nervous to get back into this world and scared I won’t like it as much. Fingers crossed! 🙂

  2. I have mixed feelings towards this book as well. I enjoyed the original Hunger Games trilogy when I read it years ago. But when I heard the news about this book, I just wasn’t exited? I really don’t know how to feel about it yet. I’m not even sure if I’m going to read it? We shall see. Great post! 🙂
