The new Hunger Games adaptation, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, has taken the world by storm. Dystopian literature lovers from 2014 are slowly creeping out of their shells to once again be met with another showstopping film.
I had the pleasure and honor to go to the movie’s press release last month with some other Bookstr members. It was such an amazing experience to be invited and have a chance to see the movie before anybody else.
With that being said, I have had to keep my mouth shut, and I have been bursting at the seems feeling the same way (….about young Snow) that some of these Tweets expressed.
Without further ado, take a look at these Tweets that you are bound to relate to.
Me and my friends are having a hunger games themed party and all dressing up but we don’t get to pick our character so if I’m not Lucy or katniss someone is dying

Who would you pick? Lucy or Katniss?
Instead of friendsgiving this year can someone host the hunger games

I am pitching this to my friend group! As long as there is an actual cornucopia of food in the middle and not weapons…
why did they have to make snow so fucking fine in the new hunger games??? it’s so difficult to hate him when he’s fine as fuck
— aysha🏎️ 🇵🇸 (@aysha_jpg) November 20, 2023
I am surprised I didn’t write this tweet myself because this is what I have been thinking since I saw the film.
because of this new hunger games movie i realized my biggest red flag -> i think i can fix everyone even someone like Snow
i could totally fix him i’m telling you just give some time
— 🇵🇸damn IN MY F1 OBSESSION ERA (@fjentoa) November 20, 2023
Just give me 15 minutes and I will have him begging Panem for his forgiveness.
They had no reason making Snow that fine in the hunger games prequel
— odd angel (@oddangel420) November 20, 2023
Once again, why would they do that to us when we know in our souls we should hate him?
I watched the new hunger games last night and why did I think snow was fit when he had his head shaved and the bloody dog tag I need help
— lizzie (@liz_rose98) November 20, 2023
Don’t worry, I think many of us need help…
i just finished watching the hunger games, tell me why i’m giggling and kicking my feet for PRESIDENT SNOW??? HELLO? WHERE IS MY DIGNITY
— chantal¹⁶ ⁵⁵ (@zombievoo) November 20, 2023
EXACTLY! Why was a drooling over a murderous man?
rewatching hunger games rn so i remember to hate snow when watching the new one tonight
— ✰. (@fruitmanfreak) November 20, 2023
I should have prepared this way because I fell way too deeply for him…
my fyp is crazy it’s all hunger games edits, press, and women walking out of the movie theatre ashamed that they thirsted over coriolanus snow
— bri (@bribrisimps) November 20, 2023
I am ashamed, but I know that I am not alone.
i understand coriolanus. i too would cheat in the hunger games for lucy gray no matter the consequences
— jess || watching invincible s2!! (@zatannasgf_) November 20, 2023
She deserved all the help she got from him! If all he’s good for is his money and status, USE.HIM.
my life is the hunger games i’m always fighting out here
— dxn (@ih4tedxn) November 20, 2023
This tweet aligns so well with my life recently.
never trust a man during his buzz cut era pic.twitter.com/PvPsm4h6xh
— v (@vicdlibyh) November 19, 2023
Never! No matter how good he looks…
i’m itching to see the ballad of songbirds and snakes so bad but i have to wait bc i literally have plans to see it twice
— abby ‧₊˚✩彡 (@aabbyymariee) November 20, 2023
I plan on watching it over and over again. I also want to watch all the movies in order so I can see the history unfold and all the foreshadowing!
people attracted to president snow in the new hunger games movie are gonna be so stoked when i tell them about a man who goes by the name eminem
— adrian (@grandeures) November 19, 2023
This made me laugh so hard.
Nah it’s time for me to speak my truth, I carry no shame.
The makers of #TBOSAS had zero (0) damn business making Coriander Snow so hot.
— Lydia Suffield (@andlydiasays) November 20, 2023
If you could hear through your screen, you would hear me clapping for this tweet.
— Snowsies (@kimdamihive) November 20, 2023
Looks like we book lovers have a new MMC obsession! I am right there with you.
don’t ask me what i’m doing for the next 3-5 working days because the answer is obsessing and crying over #tbosas
— els x (@babychutes) November 20, 2023
I feel for everyone going through this right now because I went through this period about a month ago and I am on the other side… still obsessed with Snow though. Those feelings don’t lessen.
Time to rewatch the Hunger Games movies and obsess over all the parallels to TBOSAS? Yeah that sounds about right 🤌🏼 #tbosas
— Jess (Taylor’s Version) 💚❤️ (@jesslayla13) November 20, 2023
Finding all of the parallels was hands down the best part, especially if you were a diehard fan of the series in 2014. We have been desperately waiting to learn Snow’s past.
— alisa (@alisa121721) November 20, 2023
The soundtrack is insane! Give it a listen if you haven’t.
— d (@xotoftime) November 20, 2023
I am so glad I came across this tweet because this was one of the biggest take aways I had from the film. I am still shook when I think about Snow’s villain arc.
first voldemort was hot when he was young and now president snow too? i don’t know how much more of this i can take
— ally 🦋✨🎧⸆⸉ (@ally_sheehan) November 17, 2023
This tweet is a bit too niche for me… I was agast when I found it, I thought I was being called out by the public.
president snow vibing for 64 years… until a swamp potato appears pic.twitter.com/K6eoWsxBo2
— olivia TBOSAS SPOILERS (@katnisssongs) November 19, 2023
I love love love this scene! It is funny, but also so foreboding.
They didn’t tell me President Snow was so fine in his youth .. this changes a lot pic.twitter.com/VMkDNb8qgW
— Sean 🇵🇭 (@seanieboiiiii) November 19, 2023
I love this delusion because it is true. Snow being hot changes so much.
— sof ✩ (@benchsoot) November 19, 2023
When I caught myself drooling over him and remembered who he grew up to be it was literally a jump scare.
Making president snow so fine was such an unfair choice, how am I meant to hate him when……….. pic.twitter.com/Tei2KR6Aoj

The reality of the book world is it is impossible to hate a hot man even if he’s done terrible things.
