Image Credit: Bob Charlotte/PR Photos (2); Jason Kempin/Getty ImagesA few weeks ago, Kristen Bell professed her love for Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy on Twitter. But it seems she’s not the only celeb to give The Hunger Games love in 140 characters or less. Here’s a sample of other celebs who can’t get enough of the books:
Elizabeth Banks: (actress, most recently seen on 30 Rock as Avery Jessup)
- “MOCKINGJAY!!! Clearing three days of my life to devour this book. 3rd in Hunger Games trilogy. Read these!”
John Gallagher Jr.: (actor, Broadway star of American Idiot)
- I just finished The Hunger Games and must IMMEDIATELY get to a book store to procure the second entry! Now reading… http://twitpic.com/2cbf0s
- 1st copy fresh from a just opened shipment box. Thanks Book Court! http://twitpic.com/2ef1nf
- Finished Catching Fire of the Hunger Games trilogy. Don’t know how most fans of the series waited a whole year for 3rd book.
- It’s release day for Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins! Get your copy today! No I’m not working for the PR team. Just a really big fan/dork.
- Had to put down Janis Ian for this. 100 pages in. It’s a nail biter! http://twitpic.com/2ipxyz
- Just landed in LA. I spied several castmates reading The Hunger Games on the plane. It’s spreading!
Jodelle Ferland: (actress, most recently seen in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse as Bree)

- @JoMarie15 I was Gale before…but then I was converted to Peeta after Mockingjay! (gale was a bit of a jerk in it)

- BTW I got my Mockingjay pin at Borders while I was at the airport (it’s US only store) & it’s actually a keychain, gonna turn it into a pin!
- “@SpunkyC 3rd installment of The Hunger Games series!” and “@gavincreel If you like fiction, you should read The Hunger Games! :-)”
And if showing love via Twitter isn’t enough, CBS Style named the trilogy one of this fall’s must-haves to carry around. And at a recent trip to a bookstore, President Obama’s daughters Sasha and Malia picked up titles from the trilogy.
