Darcy Bell, the author of A Simple Favor— which was adapted into the 2018 film of the same name, starring Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick— gives us a new domestic thriller, Something She’s Not Telling Us. Crazy Rich Asians‘ author Kevin Kwan is set to return with a new love story called Sex and Vanity that is bound to be just as extravagant and dramatic as the first one.
And finally, a book we have all been waiting for, Suzanne Collins takes us back to the world of Panem in a Hunger Games prequel set 64 years before the original novel. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes will not be focusing on Katniss Everdeen but rather the villain Coriolanus Snow.
Read the most anticipated book of 2020 on May 19th! The Ballad of Songbirds And Snakes, a new Hunger Games novel by Suzanne Collins.
