Some exciting news for Hunger Games fans came at BookExpo America over the weekend, when Suzanne Collins, author of best selling series The Hunger Games revealed that she plans to return to YA fiction!
Unfortunately Collins wouldn’t give us any more details aside from revealing that her new book for teens will be a series. In the meantime she will be releasing a new book in September, Year of the Jungle which is a children’s books.
Collins told the BEA audience that she is currently helping with the scripts for Mockingjay Part 1 and Mockingjay Part 2, which will hit theaters in November 2014 and 2015 respectively.
Due to her current commitments we expect that Collins won’t be publishing the first book in this new series until 2014/2015.
Before The Hunger Games, Collins had written another series for teens that was lesser known titled The Underland Chronicles. Five books were published in the series between 2003 and 2007 before she moved on to her books following Katniss. So if you haven’t had a chance to read those and are eager for some more Suzanne Collins material go ahead and grab them from your local bookstore/library.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens in theaters November 22.
