Welcome to the 74th Hunger Games. Let the Parodies Begin!


It was only a matter of time.

Just as Twilight had Vampires Suck and Nightlight, The Hunger Games is now being treated to its own set of parodies.

Parodies for The Hunger Games include:

The Hunger Pains by The Harvard Lampoon

From the writers of the New York Times Bestselling Nightlight (a Twilight parody), Kantkiss Nerverclean is the star of this take.  The Hunger Pains even has its own book trailer:

The name “Kantkiss” made me chuckle.

The Younger Games by S.D. King


Currently only available for Kindle users, The Younger Games features a 12 year old heroine, Dogny.  The product description promises “grim bathroom humor.”

The Hunger But Mainly Death Games by Bratniss Everclean

Is that…. an ostrich?! This is a time in which my keyboard is in desperate need of an interrobang.

These three books are the only The Hunger Games parodies available thus far.   If you’re not into reading an entire book poking fun at The Hunger Games, perhaps a song will do:

    I just started The Hunger Games yesterday – boy is the hype huge on this – I feel so much pressure to like it.

    I’d love to check some of these out, but I usually find parodies to be quite unfunny, with their jokes happening more on a surface level. :/

    That Lana del Rey cover is ace though! I’ve had it on repeat for while!

    I haven’t had enought time to read lately- but am looking for a great book for when I’m able to (which I hope is soon!). I’ve been seeing this everywhere lately- so I’m considering this or Fifty Shades of Grey. Have you read it?
