If you thought you were a fan of The Hunger Games, think again. We're not sure anyone can be a bigger fan than Kristen Bell, who told Jimmy Kimmel last night that she considers the book series to be "the best thing ever written."

In fact, she loves the books so much that she read them all aloud to her fiancé and fellow actor, Dax Shepard

"I read the books and I was like, 'This is it, this is the piece of literature that in a 100 years we’ll look back on and it will be the best thing we’ve ever written,'" Kristen explained of her "obsession" on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

"I was so taken with it, I couldn’t put it down," she added. "And I kept saying to Dax, 'You gotta read this, you gotta read this.'" 

But, sadly, once Dax realized that 12-year-old girls were reading the books, he was over the idea of ever picking up a copy. Until Kristen made him an offer he couldn't refuse. 

"I said, 'What if I read it to you?' And I did, out loud, all three books," she confessed to Jimmy. "[It took] like three weeks. We read a couple of chapters a night. He was really into it. I did the voices and stuff…. So, I’ve technically read the trilogy twice."

And Kristen, who actually had a Hunger Games-themed birthday party where she "dressed up" as Katniss Everdeen, really wants to star in the franchise's next film, based on the second book, Catching Fire

"There is one part, age-wise, I'm right for," Kristen admitted, coyly. "Johanna Mason. I think [I’d be good as her], but Hollywood is a competitive business."
