This week's question is: Activity! Dream cast your current read.
MY ANSWER: Oh crap. I just finished a book yesterday and haven't started my next read yet. Well I was reading Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson. And honestly I have no idea who I would cast. I really hate this kind of game, because I don't think of celebrities when I'm reading, I have my own vision of the character, but I'll try my best.
So I am kinda of cheating here, but I did sort of picture the girl who played Tiger Lily in the Neverland mini series. Although apparently her name was Aaya. Don't recall that, but it's been a while since I watched it.
Q'oriana Kilcher would definitely be a good Tiger Lily, since she obviously played that role!
And to be totally unoriginal, I was sort of thinking of a 16 year old Jeremy Sumpter as Peter Pan. He played Peter a few years back, 03 was it? And I thought he made a good Peter Pan, so let's cast a slightly older Jeremy as Peter!
I sometimes prefer having totally new to the world actors/actresses playing book characters, that way their previous work won't influence my opinion of their portrayal of the book character.
TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.
This week's question is: Show Me Your Cover: What are some of the worst book covers, but hold some of the best stories inside? Don't be embarrassed, show us your cover!
MY ANSWER: Oh this is bad. I hate bashing cover art sometimes. At least you know, making it a public bashing. Especially when someone did take the time to make the cover art. I feel bad for not liking it. Of course it has nothing to do with the author's writing. And I cannot even totally blame the cover artist. Perhaps they didn't read the book, just got some idea of the main character and the plot and came up with what they came up with.
That being said I will choose a few covers I didn't really like:
Okay, I looove the H&W Investigations Novels!! The series is just incredible! But these last two covers were just kind of blah for me. The first cover was pretty neat, but then sudden;y the cover model goes cartoony. What's up with that? I so don't like the outfit on the second book. But as I said, I LOOOOOOVE the series and the cover did get a new look this time around and it's much nicer! Hope that look stays!
These covers weren't so bad, it's just they look like a trashy vampire romance novel instead of being the killer urban fantasy novel with a little heavier romance. So yeah, when I read these in public I used my hide-a-cover because I knew my friends would never let me hear the end of it! And also, I just don't like them that much. The vampires--both good vampires--look a little too possessive of the woman they're holding. It's a little off putting for me. But again, LOOOOVE the book itself!
I think that's all for now! I could keep going, but then I would have to keep writing my paragraph explaining why I didn't care for it because I don't want to offend anyone who does like it. And I soooo don't want to offend the authors or cover artists themselves. So yeah. I'm done here. :)
