What’s on the Hunger Games Reading Order?

This unofficial Hunger Games reading order and timeline takes all of the books and films and places them in chronological order. There are only three books and four films, but it’s the Hunger Games. I couldn’t not include it on my list of timelines. Besides, executives at Lionsgate have suggested that they might make more films set in this universe, so it is likely to expand in the future.

So for your consideration, here is The Hunger Games reading order. As always, don’t forget to let us know if there’s something else we should add, take away, or rearrange. Thank you, and enjoy.
