"I read the books... (and) I thought, 'This is it! This is the piece of literature that in 100 years we'll look back on and it will be the best thing we've ever written...' I was so taken with it. I couldn't put it down." Actress Kristen Bell is such a huge fan of The Hunger Games trilogy she read the books aloud to her fiance Dax Shepard. She also themed a birthday party after the book series and dressed as heroine Katniss Everdeen.
