Suzanne Collins Hits Bestseller List with 8 Year Old Book

Author Suzanne Collins has grabbed the #11 spot on the USA Today’s bestseller list with a book she published eight years ago.

The Hunger Games novelist hit the chart with her 2004 release, Gregor the Overlander: Underland Chronicles Book One, following a special sale. Have you read this older series?

Here’s more from Book Buzz: “Why the high spot for a book that made the list only once before, back in 2007, at No. 140? Perhaps because Amazon.com on Saturday offered the e-book for a one-day-only price of $1.99, 62% off list price.”

Altogether, Collins wrote five books for The Underland Chronicles. The final title, Gregor and the Code of Claw was released in 2007.

As of this week, all three Hunger Games books have spent more than 100 weeks on the USA Today list. Back in July 2012, Scholastic announced that there are more than 50 million copies of the books in The Hunger Games trilogy in print.

The series has also become the bestselling book series of all time on Amazon.com.
