The very first The Hunger Games book debuted in 2008 and set the world on fire. Not only were The Hunger Games and its two follow-ups Catching Fire and Mockingjay huge bestsellers, but they also inspired four live-action films starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, and Donald Sutherland.

Years later, author Suzanne Collins returned to the dystopian world of Panem with The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, which was a prequel set more than 60 years before the events of the original books. This week, the live-action adaptation of that book is hitting theaters, joining the ongoing trend in Hollywood to appeal to the lucrative Millennial market.

This all makes now the perfect time to ask: which of Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games books is your favorite? (This writer is particularly partial to the first one).
