Are You Ready for The Hunger Games?

The Hunger Games movie opens Friday, March 23! Are you ready?? What are you doing to celebrate?

Teens and adults alike have been captivated by Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy. If you haven't had enough of the Hunger Games books, and want more books with similar themes, check out the If You Like The Hunger Games page on DPL's Teen Website, eVolver! I recently did a poll of my colleagues who enjoyed The Hunger Games for their ULTIMATE Hunger Games read-a-like. These books may feature dystopian worlds with teens fighting back, a strong female protagonist, action, social commentary, a love triangle, or some combination of all of these elements. Whatever your reason for loving The Hunger Games, you'll probably enjoy (at least some of!) these books, too!

Divergent, Veronica Roth (the 2nd book, Insurgent, is coming soon!)--This one got the most votes by far!

The Maze Runner trilogy, James Dashner

Unwind, Neal Shusterman

The Uglies series, Scott Westerfeld

Mortal Engines, Philip Reeve

Ashes, Ilsa Bick

Ashfall, Mike Mullin

Blood Red Road, Moira Young

Battle Royale, Koshun Takami

Ship Breaker, Paolo Bacigalupi

Pure, Julianna Baggott

Enclave, Ann Aguirre

The Forest of Hands and Teeth, Carrie Ryan

Birthmarked, Caragh O'Brien
