KStew up for the part in *Hunger Games*?

USA Today Reports:

"Chloe Moretz appears to be leading the hunt for Katniss Everdeen, and Kathy Reichs is out with her first young-adult novel.

Courting Katniss: Now that we know who will play Lisbeth Salander in the American movie version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (Rooney Mara), fans are speculating about the next plum book role for a young actress: Katniss Everdeen, the teen heroine of Suzanne Collins' young-adult dystopian trilogy. The final novel, Mockingjay, shoots to the top of USA TODAY's Best-Selling Books list in its first week of sales. ET, MTV and the Los Angeles Times all say Kick-Ass star Chloe Moretz has the inside track to star in the adaptation of the first book, The Hunger Games. Twilight's Kristen Stewart is also mentioned in nearly all the online shortlists, according to The Daily Beast. The screenplay was written by Collins and revised by screenwriter Billy Ray (24,Flightplan). Production begins early next year.

Going 'Virals': Kathy Reichs is the latest best-selling writer to dive into the popular young-adult category. She's known for her adult novels starring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, the inspiration for the hit Fox TV show Bones. The 13th, Spider Bones, enters the list at No. 14. Virals, Reichs' first YA novel and first in a series, will be published by Razorbill Nov. 2. Virals stars Temperance's grand-niece Tory, who's 14. "There are a lot of young-adult viewers of Bones and a surprising number who read my adult books," Reichs says, "and I think kids are really going to like seeing kids doing forensic science." Tory and friends contract a virus from a puppy they rescue from a testing lab, only to discover they have acquired certain canine abilities, which they use to solve a murder mystery.

Winter 'Dreams': Summer's not over, but early reading copies of Kim Edwards' January novel from Viking, The Lake of Dreams, have landed on book critics' desks. Edwards' 2005 debut novel, The Memory Keeper's Daughter, sold 4 million copies. It became a No. 1 USA TODAY best seller and spent 119 weeks on the list. In an e-mail, Edwards says, "The Lake of Dreams is set in a fictional town in the gorgeous Finger Lakes region in Upstate New York, where I grew up. The novel has a contemporary narrator, Lucy Jarrett, but the story turns on the discovery of a hidden history that will change Lucy's family, as well as her own life direction, forever."

Has anyone read these books?

I like most of the actresses mentioned. I wish Dakota was n the running. She is great.

I have heard these books mentioned on Twitter, but I am sad to say that I have not read them. I know that the mods here (Alison and Kim) are fans of the books...

Love the books & I can't wait to see who they get to play all the characters, but I highly doubt Kristen will want to be in another popular young adult book adaptation trilogy. I think it would be a bad move for her as well as the movie.

Oh, everyone and their mother should read these books. They are pretty much the next best thing to Twilight for me (really, they knocked Harry Potter off my #2 spot...). Kristen will always be mentioned with YA book adaptions because she has previously been in other adaptions. Very upsetting because she looks nothing of the part for Katniss. Jodelle Ferland is a fan fav, though with her dark hair and skin. She is also a huge fan of the books! She's dressing up as Ms. Everdeen for Halloween.

I agree with everything Melissa said. Hunger Games = AWESOME. I don't think KStew is right for Katniss...Jodelle is a Hunger Games fan, has read all the books, and would be a GREAT Katniss. She gets my vote.

Love the books (: I don't know if Kristen would be good in the role, though. She's not who I imagined. I can't wait to see it when it comes out, though, no matter who they choose.

I was reading the reviews of Hunger Games I am going to pick it up today. Can't wait to read it.

That would be b******' if Stew got the part, of course if offered to her it would be soley her choice but i LOVE how she is so highly thought of in Hollywood and with renound authors. Big fan of Jodelle also!!
