Hunger Games Fireside Chat #84: “Fireside Recs: The Matched Trilogy”
Tonight’s special Tuesday episode of the Hunger Games Fireside Chat will go live at 10pm EST. Topics for tonight will include:
- We’ll kick things off by touching on an interesting bit of news that broke last week: The new X-Men movie, which was due to start filming in January, has now pushed production back to April. Will this give Catching Fire some more breathing room? Does this mean that Gary Ross could have directed Catching Fire? Will this interfere with the filming of the Mockingjay movies?
- We’ll also weigh in on a recent article published by io9.com: “Could The Hunger Games Get Published Today?”
- Now for an exciting announcement! We’re launching a new, recurring segment on the show called Fireside Recs. Every month-ish, we’ll feature a book, series of books, or movie that Hunger Games fans like YOU are sure to enjoy. Our first pick, as you could probably tell by the title of this episode, is the Matched trilogy by Ally Condie. The last book in the trilogy — Reached — was just published, so we thought it would make a fitting inaugural choice. Our promo image this week features the cover artwork for Reached.
