Let the Games Begin!

A worldwide fandom of Hunger Games, all tributes (or fans) of the trilogy is now waiting for the worldwide release of the third and last book of the trilogy which is the MOCKINGJAY! Even Ms. Suzanne Collins gave out her words how grateful she is for the release of the book!

Dear Readers,

I can’t tell you how excited I am for the release ofMockingjay on August 24th, and how grateful I am for all the anticipation that’s been expressed in advance of the release date. One of the most important things to me is that everyone in the world is going to be able to experience the final book of The Hunger Games all at the same time, and be able to discover what happens in the book without hearing about it elsewhere first. Word will certainly travel fast, but I urge you – before or immediately after August 24th – to please respect the other Hunger Games fans worldwide and avoid sharing any spoilers, so that the conclusion of Katniss’s story can unfold for each reader the way it was meant to unfold.

I am eagerly looking forward to August 24th and the entrance of Mockingjay in the world. Then (and only then) let the conversations begin!

Sincerely,
Suzanne Collins
