Suzanne Collins’ young adult dystopian series, The Hunger Games, quickly captivated readers — both young and old alike — upon the release of its first installment in 2008. Protagonist Katniss Everdeen offered young readers a strong female heroine who — with the help of her cohorts Peeta, Gale, Haymitch and more — takes charge and revolts against a corrupt society that forces children to brutally fight to the death in the annual, titular Hunger Games. The trilogy became such a phenomenon with readers that it was quickly adapted for the big screen. Jennifer Lawrence portrayed a convincing Katniss, alongside Josh Hutcherson as Peeta and Liam Hemsworth, who portrayed her other love interest, Gale. The first film was released in 2012 followed by 2013’s Catching Fire. The final book was split up into two movies: 2014’s Mockingjay – Part 1 with Part 2 due out in 2015.
