I feel bad because I haven’t been participating in the mini-challenges, even though I’ve really wanted to, so I’ll be catching up while I have the chance!
Genie Wishes @ Jessie’s Book Place
Mad Libs @ Debz Bookshelf
Character Casting @ The Book Monsters
The book I’m almost finished with is Strands of Bronze and Gold. Rarely do characters come to life in my head the way those in Strands have. I can picture them so clearly. I haven’t been able to find a cast that perfectly matches that in my head, but this one’s pretty close (albeit somewhat impossible without a time machine or magic wand).
Jacqueline Emerson as Sophia Petheram
You might recognize her as Foxface from The Hunger Games, which is totally opposite, but she’s also a musician and she seems super nice and smart and could totally pull of Sophia’s complexity.
Gerard Butler as Bernard de Cressac
When I chose him I was actually thinking of his role as the Phantom, which is a similar creepy but charming kind of role. He also looks the part—all he needs is a beard!
Teen Christian Bale as Gideon Stone
I’ve never seen a Batman movie. The only movies I know Christian Bale from are Newsies and Little Women, which he did quite a while ago. If I had a time machine I would totally cast him because…well, because he’d be perfect!
Lesley Nicol as Mrs. Duckworth
I kind of only picked her because she’s great at playing an English maid, but also because I don’t remember what hair color she’s supposed to have, so I figured since Bernard’s fond of redheads, his maid would likely be as well.
What do you think? Have you participated in any mini-challenges yet?
