What to read AFTER watching “Catching Fire”

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” opens this week! Rejoice!


You read the book.

You already purchased your movie ticket.

You even watched the parodies (You go, Cookieness Evereat)!


So, what’s next? I am already in the early stages of Katniss withdrawal. 

Luckily, the reading experts at Scholastic came to my rescue and created an amazing list of “Must Reads for 'The Hunger Games' fans.” This will definitely help me discover new titles and authors as I eagerly await “Mockingjay” in 2014.

To me, the holiday shopping season is the real-life “Hunger Games,” so feel free to use this as a gift guide cheat-sheet for your family and friends.

Make note that these books are great for fans ages 12 and up. All books in the list are available at The Scholastic Store and book retailers nationwide.

See any of your favorites below? Feel free to add to our list in the comments section.
