I love this book! It was so much more than I wanted! You can click here to see what I predicted for The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. This was such a wild ride! As usual, Suzanne Collins writing is superb with a story that will have you wondering what is next! We had love, betrayal, violence, and everything we could want from a Hunger Games book!

In The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, Coriolanus Snow comes from a family of power, but with his parents gone, he must redeem the family name. His one shot is as a mentor in the games, but he is assigned a girl from District 12. As their fates depend on each other, they must learn to trust each other. While there was a fight to the death in the games, Snow must also find a way to stay alive.

I loved that we got a sad love story for Snow! I did not Lucy turning on Snow coming! I thought that she was going to be killed either in the games or something! I’m not going to lie I was hoping that she somehow she was going to change her mind and want to live in the capital, but I knew that wasn’t going to happen, but she didn’t have to turn on him! I get why things played out the way they did, but come on Suzanne, did you have to make me feel that bad for Snow? I also really loved the relationship the Snow but with his classmates as well. I loved that we see him struggling with who he is and all of the emotions he has living him in the capital, it like its own version of the games. We watched his boy turn into a man, and back into a boy as he falls in love, learns to trust, save his home, and lose everything. This book showed us a side of Snow that we never could imagine from the original three books, but I am so happy that we got it!
I enjoyed this book! I would like to see a sequel to see who Snow does marry and how the games turned to how they look like in The Hunger Games. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes was beautiful, the character development was amazing! There wasn’t too much more I could ask for in this book! What I still want is Haymitch’s story and games! His story has always been so intriguing to me! I highly suggest that you read this book!
If you are missing the Wizarding World, check out A Deadly Education! This was like Hunger Games meets Hogwarts meets Lord of the Flies.
If you are looking for a beautiful book to get lost in, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is it! V.E. Schwab did a wonderful job with this!
I said from the moment this book came out I was never going to read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, but I did and this book was something.
