The Hunger Games, the movie blockbuster, is the first book in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins (Catching Fire, and Mockingjay are the other two books).

How did I know? I checked Novelist, a database available to our library patrons. Check out your favorite authors, series, author read-alikes, plot lines you would like to read, etc.

Use Novelist, and you'll never be at a loss as to what to read next.

You can access Novelist from out library catalog, or from the Riverdale Public Library website, or click here
