In My Mind Monday – The Sweet Gum Tree edition

I read and reviewed The Sweet Gum Tree by Katherine Allred months ago and finally got the chance to read it for a second time this past weekend and man, it still gets me like the first time. It’s tear-jerking, heart breaking, and gut-wrenching, which is why it is one of my favorite books. Of course, like all of my other favorites, it was pretty hard for me to put a face to the names. I want it to be perfect. I want to do these books justice! There are so many significant characters in this book, it was too hard to get to them all but here are my picks for the ones I got to…

Nick Anderson: Tyler Hoechlin

Alix French: Leighton Meester

Lindsey: Amanda Seyfried

Hugh: Ryan Gosling

 

Jenna: Emma Stone

Daniel Anderson: Ricardo Antonio Hoyos

Judge: Barry Corbin

Ellie: Debra Messing

James: J.R. Bourne

Have you read this book yet? If not, GET ON IT! You will definitely not regret it! If so, would you cast this book differently? Who do you picture as your favorite characters?

In My Mind Monday (but on a Tuesday) – Seduction and Snacks edition

Eek! Sorry a little late. I’ve been wrapped in Halloween festivities! Anyway…

It’s In My Mind Monday (but on a Tuesday) where I put a face to the names in the books I’ve read. Today is Seduction and Snacks edition [My review for book 1 | My review for book 2]

I know the characters in the book are in their mid-20s but the cast I have in mind is a little bit older because I think they can pull off the type of humor that is used in this book. If anything, try imagining them a little bit younger than they are now lol

Carter: Justin Hartley… I have only seen him as Green Arrow on Smallville and, more recently, on Emily Owens, M.D., but if he can be witty, snarky, and sarcastic, I think he’d be the perfect Carter. Plus, WHEW! HUBBA HUBBA! This guy is hot!

Claire: Katherine Heigl… loved her as a brunette in One For the Money.

Liz: Leslie Mann

Jim: Ryan Reynolds

Jenny: Anna Faris

Drew: Eric Christian Olsen

Gavin: Any kid who can look and act like Dylan/Cole Sprouse in Big Daddy circa 1999

George: Robert De Niro

Have you read this yet? If not, what’s wrong with you?! Get it and read it! I promise it will be worth it! Well, if you have any kind of sense of humor. If so, who do you picture as the cast of this book?

In My Mind Monday – Down To You edition

Down To You by M. Leighton has been one of the best books I’ve read all year (my review can be found here) so I was a little hesitant to do this. This post has been sitting in my drafts for a while because this story is just so damn good, the casting has to be perfect! Hopefully the cast I have in mind does this book some justice 🙂

Cash/Nash twins: Nick Zano

Olivia: Rachel Bilson

Marissa: Annalynne McCord… I know I’ve used her in another book but damn, she just plays the bitch role so well!

Taryn: Brittanya O’Campo. Not sure if she can act but she would sure fit the part and I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing her with blonde dreadlocks lol

Marco: Michael Copon

Shawna: Katie Cassidy

I feel like I’m missing a ton of characters =/ Anyway, have you read this yet?! If not, you NEED to. Like right now. It will complete your life. If you have read it already, who would you cast?

In My Mind Monday – CRASH/CLASH edition

I loved this series. It is written by Nicole Williams and features two of the most complex and interesting characters I have ever read about. I love Jude and Lucy! My review for the series can be found here. Here is who I would cast if this book were ever made into a movie… Hopefully my choices do this book some justice!

Lucy Larson: Chloe Rose

Jude Ryder: Alex Pettyfer

Alex Pettyfer

 

Sawyer Diamond: Beau Mirchoff

Taylor Donovan: Sarah Paxton

Holly: she was a tough one to cast! But in my mind, I picture Nikki Reed but pre-Twilight

Lexie Hamilton: AnnaLynne McCord

Have you read the CRASH series yet? If not, WHY NOT?! You’re missing out! If so, who would you cast for it?

In My Mind Monday – Avoiding Commitment edition

Avoiding Commitment is written by K.A. Linde and is one of my favorite books this year. In fact, I’ve read it twice already and will more than likely be reading it again before the year is over. I swear it is THAT good. The description and/or my review for it is here. This is who I would cast for this book if it were ever made into a movie…

As Jack: Chace Crawford… I think it would be really interesting to see him as an asshole lol

As Lexi: Sophia Bush

As Ramsey: Colton Haynes… gah, it’s not even fair how hot this guy is

As Bekah: Julianne Hough… if she can pull off being a b*tch, she’d be perfect for this part

As Chyna: Amanda Setton

Have you read this yet? If not, YOU NEED TO! If so, who would you cast and why?

WHEW!

As Abby Abernathy: Leighton Meester…


As America: Aly Michalka…
