Kristen Bell professes her love of the 'Hunger Games' trilogy on Twitter

Mockingjay-Kristen-BellImage Credit: Glenn Harris/PR PhotosKristen Bell is drooling and sweating (her words, not mine) over Mockingjay, the third and final installment of the Hunger Games trilogy.

Bell has taken to her verified Twitter account (@IMKristenBell) to profess her love for the novels. “not just ‘a’ hunger games fan. THE hunger games fan. read both books twice & am silently salivating for the 3rd” she tweeted last week. Well, Kristen, ask and you shall receive. Yesterday, she posted a picture of the book, saying “it’s here.”

Twitter isn’t the only outlet Bell is using to talk up the books. In the September issue of SHAPE she said, “It’s a wonderfully engaging story about a young female gladiator. I read the first one in a day — it’s that good.” And she’s even trying to convince her Twitter followers that the books is a must-read: “believe it baby! 2nd time i read it aloud 2 friends & did different voices for each charachter. i am the king of the nerds!” But that’s not all. She shared her thoughts on characters Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark: “hmm its a hard one. peeta is so damn sweet but i wish he would stick up for himself when katniss is being a straight up biiiitch!” and “but i love katniss. shes a hardened criminal & the symbol of a rebellion. embarrassed to say i wish she would smoooch peeta more!”

What do you think? Is Bell’s love of the trilogy a bit too much or are you right there with her tweeting about how awesome the series is?

    I’ve been equally as dorky on my fb page. My freak flag doesn’t fly quite as tall as her’s though. I love it.

  • Breanna

    Aw man, I think I love Kristen Bell even more. She deserves a spot in the upcoming Hunger Games movie…effie trinket anyone?

  • cbfree

    What about her as Johanna Mason… won’t see her till the 2nd movie but could be fun.

  • CindyC

    She is so awesome & so right. If you haven’t read The Hunger Games trilogy yet – you just don’t even know. And she’s Team Peeta! Team Gale, this is your cue to no longer exist.

  • Dear K-Bell,

    If you love the trilogy so much, then please help move the film adaptation along. Convince your good buddy Zach Quinto that he was BORN to play Cinna. Read for the part of Johanna Mason. Use your connections to get Alfonso Cuaron or Zach Snyder on board to direct. Then I will be convinced that you are “the” Hunger Games fan.

    She would be a perfect Johanna!!! :) Awesome!
