Book #40 of 2020 | The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins

Title: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

Author: Suzanne Collins

Thoughts: This is the prequel to The Hunger Games series and I loved diving back into a trilogy that was such a big part of my middle and high school years. I don’t necessarily recommend this book to people who haven’t read The Hunger Games, since I’m not sure you’d get much out of it, and for those of you who have read the series, I recommend a re-read before The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes—there’s quite a few recurring characters, themes, settings, etc., that are subtle but you might miss without having them freshly in your head. But this is a great look at Panem before Katniss’s Panem, how President Snow came to power, and how the Hunger Games came to be!
