Suzanne Collin’s teen series, The Hunger Games, has another celebrity fan—none other than Tyra Banks! The Hunger Games and Catching Fire are centered around the annual “hunger games,” where 24 teenagers are chosen to fight to death, on live TV, while Mockingjay, the last book in the trilogy focuses on the horrors of war—pretty adult topics for a series marketed at youngsters.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Tyra Banks tweeted that she just finished Catching Fire, the second book in the dystopian trilogy, calling the novel, “Soooooo good!!!” Tyra’s not the only celebrity who has taken a liking to The Hunger Games. Other fans include Kristen Bell, John Gallagher Jr., Melinda Doolittle and Elizabeth Banks, who recently tweeted, ““MOCKINGJAY!!! Clearing three days of my life to devour this book. 3rd in Hunger Games trilogy. Read these!”
So why are all these stars such fans of a young adult book series? The answer’s simple—The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay, are fast-paced and compelling reads And Katniss Everdeen, the protagonist and heroine of the series, is a strong-willed, likeable young woman, who despite only being a teenager, is wise beyond her years.
