Yesterday, Suzanne Collins and illustrator James Proimos were at the BookExpo America Scholastic party to promote the children’s book Year of the Jungle. The Hunger Games author talked about writing about war for young people. How I wished I had a chance to see Suzanne Collins and get a copy of the book.
Luckily, today, James was at BEA’s Autographing area!

I came across a number of YA Novels that were marketed to the fans of The Hunger Games, some of them were so-so, some were disappointing. When I received an ARC of Joelle Charbonneau’s ‘The Testing’, I was worried that it might be just another mediocre novel jumping on the Dystopian bandwagon. But it turned out that I liked the book a lot, I devoured it in one sitting!
Last year, before the movie was released, Scholastic released The Hunger Games: Movie Tie-in Edition. Catching Fire will also have a movie tie-in edition for Catching Fire, which will be released on October 8, 2013. The cover has not been revealed yet, but you can now pre-order from Amazon.
Scholastic will also release an Official Illustrated Movie Companion for Catching Fire, which will be out in November!
