What to Read After the Hunger Games by Emily, Teen Blogger

If you’re anything like me, you loved “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins, and once the trilogy was over, you wanted more like it. A little late for some, perhaps, but here is a list of reading materials I’d suggest to you based on different aspects of “The Hunger Games”. Without further ado, here it is:

Vampire Academy 1- book cover


If you enjoyed the strong female lead… I’d suggest you give “Vampire Academy” by Richelle Mead a chance.


Rose Hathaway really brings a whole new meaning to female empowerment, with her physical and emotional strength to deal with all of life’s problems. Definitely recommended if KatnissEverdeenmade you feel like girls could do anything they put their mind to.


Delirium by Lauren Oliver


If you enjoyed the futuristic setting… I’d strongly recommend you read “Delirium” by Lauren Oliver. 


Under a very strict government, love is considered a disease and, at the age of 18, you undergo a surgery that takes away your ability to love. This book is set very far in the future, just as “The Hunger Games” appears to be.

A must read if you loved being transported into the future with Katniss.


Life As We Knew It-book cover


If you enjoyed the dystopia…You might enjoy “Life as We Knew It” by Susan Beth Pfeffer.


In this world, the moon has crashed into the Earth, causing the world to basically begin its end. Everyone begins to panic and the feeling of the book is very dark. If you liked the way “The Hunger Games” was full of fear and horror, you might want to read this book.



Divergent book cover


If you liked the different Districts… I’d tell you to check out “Divergent” by Veronica Roth.

If I’m to admit it, this book is up there on my top favourites. This world is actually based in Chicago, but still seperated into different factions: Candor, Dauntless, Erudite, Amity and Abnegation. Less factions than districts, but pretty much along the same lines. If you liked the separation of the population, you might want to give “Divergent” a try.
